I’m here with another debate and discussion to spice up your day.
It is no longer news that the 12th Edition of the Headies Award is around the corner and of course we can’t wait for the day.
Meanwhile, it is important to note that nominations are made based on musical efforts of Nigerian artistes last year 2017. We expect that winners will emerge peacefully without drama.
We all know what went down last year. Of course, 2017 was one of the busiest years in Nigeria’s music industry and the Headies Organizers were damn right at the choice of nominees for the Artiste of the Year category.
In this category we have big artistes like; Davido, Wizkid, Olamide Tiwa Savage and Simi. These are artistes with noticeable imprint in the industry all through 2017.
The Year 2017 for Davido, started well with duo hit singles like “If” and “Fall” the DMW frontman took advantage of the working pon-pon beat to have an amazing music run that year. For Davido, every single song was a hit.
In 2017, Wizkid went on the Journey to the other side which gave birth to his last EP. His attempt to make African sound shake Europe last year was so damn successful. No wonder he sold out the Iconic Royal Albert Hall, London and a couple of other International collaborations as wells Giggs.
The YBNL boss started prett slow in 2017. His slow start in 2017 can be attributed to the fact he tried to experiment with the pon-pon sound that worked for Davido and other artistes. After the released of “Love No Go Die” and “Summer Body” with Davido, Olamide switched one-time to give the street what they wanted with hot tracks like “Wo”, “Update” among others making him one of the most successful artistes in 2017.
After the release of her hit single “Joromi” which gained serious airplay nationwide, Simi went ahead to drop her much-anticipated album, “Simisola”which also enjoyed many positive reviews. With her strong musical efforts in 2017, Simi is just more than qualified to be one of the females in this category.
It is believed that only her song “Malo” featuring Wizkid and Spellz got Tiwa Savage this nomination. The song performed so well across African Music market to become one of the biggest hits of 2017. The song was off her Sugarcane Ep.
Taking a deep look into efforts of Davido, Wizkid, Olamide, Simi and Tiwa Savage last year in the industry,
