  3. Naturally, one will expect that ano artist like 9ice who released a double albulm in the year under review would be recognised but the judges are so short sited, its not easy to release a double Álbum at once featuring so much artists. Headies?? Make use of your heads o.

  26. May D music has nothing to do with Rnb, so why give him an award ? I don’t think the jugdes really know about music. Dare & banky w are d only ones doing alittle stuff of rnb, wanna know rnb ? Check john legend & robbie thinke. Only in nigeria i don see the hybrid of rnb/pop song, this is just to tell u dat these judges are not musicians but folks who are puppets of a single genre. The only genre of music in nigeria is afro dancehall,regge ,afro pop & hip hop. Not dat i hate nigerian music but nigerians are d ones forcing d existence of few genre of music. Finally, our music producers use d same drumloops and pattern 4 every song on radio, try to be creative and bring in new sounds and beats to nigerians.

  27. naija pple na wit ojooro.bribery n corruption na him dey their blood.headies no bi by force to give award.if u dont know anythin abt award pls stop hosting it.cheat......naija i hail
