Headies is too uninvolved in the music industry - Singer Black Voltary

Upcoming music star, Black Voltary, in a chat with Legit.ng frowned at the decision of the award organizers to host the 15th Headies outside the country.

"I personally would not know what the Headies Award organizers stand to achieve by taking the show out of Nigeria. I believe they are losing relevance more and more every year which is simply because they always go back into hibernation after the award night until the next.
"For a musical award body, they are too uninvolved in the whole music business for them to matter as a body in the game. So irrespective of the location they choose to take the show, this will continue to be a limiting factor for them. Top Nigerian artistes whose who are doing wonders out there will continue to boycott their invitations."

For Black Voltary, the Headies should bring the award ceremony back home to Nigeria.

"Since it is a Nigeria musical Award, their apex show does not have any business being held in another country. They should worry more about getting the attention of Nigerians across the globe and having the brand name on the lips of everyone who makes music locally and internationally. Just like every other artiste looks forward to the Grammy irrespective of what country they hail from..."
