It could be recalled that on Saturday, May 5, Davido, Mayorkun, Simi, Tiwa Savage, Wizkid and others won big at the 2018 edition of Headies award which took place in Lagos.
Following the category of music artists and celebrities present at the show, a Delta-based radio presenter MC Akonuche took to his Instagram handle to blast organizers of the show. He disclosed that the award was organized for the Yoruba artists.
The presenter passed this comment after no eastern musician bagged any award during the event. Akonuche added that, even Ebuka is no longer from the East but now a Yoruba man.
His post reads: “For the past six years I have been on radio I have come to realise DAT there is particularly a special type of segregation bw d Eastern Nigerian musicians n d westerners.. But with critical analysis, I noticed DAT d Easterners contributed so much to their own problem.. It’s very hard for Igbo artistes who has made it to support rising fellow artist .maybe because d rising artists however don't also support them.. Look at d sponsors of @the_headies ,not even one big man or company from d east, all sponsors r from Yoruba..why won't d Igbo's not be segregated and not given awards?? We make so much money and all in our mind is only business n nobody is thinking about improving entertainment in east just very few like SIR EMEKA OFFOR had in d past contributed to entertainment. Look at d #12thheadies last not..from d red carpet, no Igbo anchor, no Igbo presented an award, except Ebuka who of course is a Yoruba personality, no Igbo artist performed n no Igbo artist won an award in all categories. Even SONG OF D YEAR DAT was supposed to go to MAD OVER U BY @runtown was given to a Yoruba Artist.. I work on d radio n I call tell u DAT MAD OVER U received high air play from December 2016 when it dropped till mid 2017 wen IF by DAVIDO came out.. But what do I know? I'm just an ordinary OAP. With dis analysis, I'm finding it difficult to accept DAT #Headies is a Nigerian award..I feel it’s more of a YORUBA AWARD even though d Igbo's contributed as d architect of their own problem n therefore I'm calling out d whole Igbo Artist to come out and support their uprising artists just like @davidoofficial is doing n let our rich Igbo men try n support entertainment... If u attack me on MY wall, be rest assured DAT u will be BLOCKED.. I JUST SAID MY MIND.. HAPPY SUNDAY!”
