Nigeria’s hottest pop star at the moment and Triple MG Super star Tekno has been withdrawn from this year’s annual Music award The Headies where he was nominated as the Next Rated Artiste along side YCEE,HUMBLESMITH,ARAMIDE and MR.EAZI.
In a letter made available to Ngstarshub the organizers confirmed that Tekno didn’t participate in all the promotional activities leading to the award such as Photoshoot section and Interviews which are some of the criteria for the award.
The Next Rated category was the only category he was nominated for and it didn’t go down well with the “pana” crooner who had expected nomination in the artiste of the year category.
It will recalled that Tekno had earlier laughed off the nomination and took to Instagram to vent his anger with a post he captioned “Next rated after how many years! Let’s be honest pls”.
Though the organizers cleared the air earlier on concerning what next rated artiste means saying that Next Rated is not just for new artistes but for any artiste who is yet to release an album. Tekno falls in that category.
The Headies Awards is set to hold today 22nd December and will be hosted by Nollywood actress, Adesua Etomi and Falz the Bahd Guy.Follow us on Twitter.
