The Headies a.k.a Hip Hop World Awards is going down this Saturday and is poised to be this weekend’s biggest attraction. Over here, Wilfred Okiche has already caught the Headies fever and he brings you a list of nominees he’ll be rooting for.
1) Oleku – Ice Prince Ft. Brymo : The most infectious single all year. In saner climes, Ice Prince should be a millionaire from royalties amassed due to airplay alone.
2) Give it to me –D’ Prince Ft. D’banj : His lyrical content may be nothing to write home about, but with that inspired beat from the Don himself, even Kanye West was converted. Club banger of the year.
3)The way you are- Darey : Perfect song, perfect video, talented performer. Need we say more?
4) Beautiful Imperfection – Asa : If you were to buy only one album for the period under consideration, it had to be this one. Eat your hearts out M.I-2 fans! [I kid, I kid]
5) Pop up Selecta –Dipp : If there was a better video for this year, we have not seen it yet.
6) Eni Duro – Olamide : From the elitist streets of Victoria Garden City to the backwaters of Makoko, “Eni Duro” was on everyone’s playlist. This guy made razz look cool, at least for a while.
7) Joor Oh (remix) – Jah Bless : With eLDee, Ruggedman, Ice Prince, Durella and Reminisce battling for lyrical supremacy, this was indeed the most entertaining remix of the year. With excellent wordplay and almost perfect delivery, it was a guilty pleasure. Don’t ask us who came out tops, Joor Oh!
8) Tiwa Savage – Miss Savage has been holding forte for the ladies all year long. Since debuting with her ‘’Kele kele Love”, she has managed to be in our faces at every point in time but with thighs like that,how dare we complain?
9) Wizkid : because this list wouldn’t be complete without him.
10) Windeck – Cabo Snoop : All the way from Angola, Cabo lured us with his sexy sounds and had us gyrating in tune with the melodious harmony. Should be a shoo-in for African Artist of the year.
