Popular rapper, CDQ has condemned organisers of the 14th Headies for giving the ‘Best Street-Hop Artiste’ category to Mayorkun over Naira Marley.
Mayorkun had beaten Naira Marley’s ‘Mafo’ to win the category with ‘Geng’, his 2020 hit single, at the event held on Sunday.
Others nominated for the category which celebrates artistes whose songs are inspired by the streets were Reminisce, Paul Okoye, Ivd & Zlatan as well as Olamide.
The ‘Geng’ crooner’s win has elicited different heated debate on social media, with some users arguing that the ‘Soapy’ crooner deserved to win.
Sharing his opinion, CDQ accused the organisers of the award event of playing “industry politics’
“Headies una don start dis una obvious industry politics tins again… How the hell una go carry Best Street Hop give someone else at the expense of Naira this year and conscience no judge unah…,” he wrote in a mixture of English and Pidgin.
He said while others in the category are his “family,” he would not shy away from saying the “truth.”
“Everyone on that category na family but ooto oro o ni ka ma so ohun…” he added this time around in Yoruba.
