Meanwhile, barely a few hours after the conclusion of the 14th edition of the Headies award show, Nigerian singer, CDQ, took to social media to accuse the organisers of politicking as regards the awards.
In a recent tweet, CDQ called out the Headies for snubbing Naira Marley. According to him, Marley who was nominated in the Best Street-Hop Artist for his song, Mafo, and not Mayorkun who won for his song, Geng, should have gotten the award.
