Capital Hill boss and video director Clarence Peters has called out the Headies for leaving out key video directors’ work, mentioning Darey‘s ‘Pray for me‘, and ‘Kiss Daniel’s ‘Jombo‘.
A number of artistes including Tekno, Yung6ix and Solidstarhave openly declared their reservations about aspects of the nominations they didn’t find palatable.
In an Instagram post, Clarence says: “In a year that these men gave us some of the most amazing visual interpretations mainly Darey’s “Pray for me” by mexemania & Kiss Daniel’s “Jombo” by ajefilmswork works, respectfully, it breaks my heart that The Headies don’t deem it fit to recognize their outstanding work.
To my brothers: from Dir Q, to adasacookey to Frizzle&Bizzle, from Gambit to LA, from Matt Max to Avalon to TOSIN IGHO, SESAN to MOE to MEJI etc …. We know what we put in.
Awards don’t define us, WE DEFINE POPULAR CULTURE not just in Nigeria, but across the continent, so I salute you all.”
