Falz, Adesua Etomi To Host Headies 2016

Falz, Adesua, Headies 2016Organisers of the Headies awards have announced Singer, Falz and Actress, Adesua Etomi as hosts of the 2016 awards show.

Falz the bahd guy and the beautiful Adesua Etomi, both took to Instagram to share a video announcement of the up-coming event.

Also, internationally recognized photographer, Shola Animashaun, once again takes credit for a recently released creative campaign shoot, for the annual hip-hop awards.

Meanwhile, the award has co-host, Falz, nominated for Best Rap Album: ‘Stories That Touch’, ‘Album of the Year ‘Stories That Touch’ , Artiste of the Year, Best Collabo: ‘Soldier’ ft Simi, and Best Music Video ‘Soldier’ ft. Simi

The nominees list has been greeted with much controversy from some aggrieved artists such as Yung6ix, Solidstar, Tekno and Clarence Peters.

Other artists have also expressed their reservations about being omitted from the nomination list altogether.

The Headies addressing the matter, said the artist didn’t submit their entries as at when due.

It would be recalled that the 2015 edition was postponed from December 28 to January 1, 2016 and it was considered as one of the most dramatic editions of the show, with some artists expressing their grievances over some of the award winners whom they felt were undeserving.

Perhaps, organisers are taking time to make arrangements to ensure a hitch-free event this time around; as the date, time and venue for the 2016 event are yet to be announced.
