It’s now a week since the Headies revealed its 2016 nominees list and so much controversy has surrounded the nomination list. Celebrities like Tekno, Yung6ix, Ycee, Solidstar etc., have expressed their shock and disappointment with this year’s nominees list.
Joining the growing number of celebrities showing disgust for the award nominees list is celebrity music video director Clarence Peters.
Clarence Peters resorted to his instagram page to blast the Headies award organisers and jury for ignoring music video directors who “gave us some of the most visual interpretations” for Darey’s “Pray for Me’ and Kiss Daniel’s “Jombo” music videos.
This is what the ace music video director had to say about the Headies.
IN A YEAR THAT THESE MEN GAVE US SOME OF THE MOST AMAZING VISUAL INTERPRETATIONS MAINLY DAREY’S “PRAY FOR ME” BY @MEXEMANIA & KISS DANIEL’S “JOMBO” BY@AJEFILMSWORK WORKS, RESPECTFULLY, IT BREAKS MY HEART THAT THE HEADIES DON’T DEEM IT FIT TO RECOGNIZE THEIR OUTSTANDING WORK.
TO MY BROTHERS: FROM DIR Q, TO @ADASACOOKEYTO FRIZZLE&BIZZLE, FROM GAMBIT TO LA, FROM MATT MAX TO AVALON TO TOSIN IGHO, SESAN TO MOE TO MEJI ETC …. WE KNOW WHAT WE PUT IN.
AWARDS DON’T DEFINE US, WE DEFINE POPULAR CULTURE NOT JUST IN NIGERIA, BUT ACROSS THE CONTINENT, SO I SALUTE YOU ALL.
