The buzz is still on!
We now bring you what the awardees said after receiving their awards at the Headies 2014 which held at the Eko Convention centre, last night.
Patoranking who is one of the brightest new musical acts in the country went home with three awards.
He had a speech prepared for each award but the most remarkable of them all was the last speech ‘“If I tell you I was once a rat killer seller, would you believe? If I tell you I was once a brick layer would you believe? But God brought me out of the gutter. My story should inspire you. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can not make it in life or you can’t achieve anything, I am a living proof of how God can turn around your story in seconds”
