4 Awkward Moments At The 2016 Headies Awards

Posted by Temitope Delano on December 23, 2016 in Editorial · 41 Comments


From the days of D’banj’s towel wielding performance down to Olamide and Don Jazzy’s deeply pained exchange of words at the 2015 awards which took place this year, the Headies Awards are famed for being a bit of a spectacle.

The award show took place last night at the Eko Convention Center, Victoria Island, and of course it was plagued with its huge share of cringe worthy/awkward moments.

Here are top 5 silly to downright awkward moments at the 2016 Headies awards in no particular order

Wizkid Intentionally Snubs Eva Alordiah’s Man

Amidst shouts of joy, love and sheer gratitude, Wizkid, made his way to his reserved seat at the Headies award show but did that with some sort of epically produced 1:30 minute drama series. While making his way to his seat, Wizkid, stopped to greet rapper Eva Alordia, but in the process, brought down  heavy torrents of embarrassing rain on Caesar, Eva’s boyfriend who stood up in all his glory with arms wide open and grin so wide you’d think he just saw his long lost brother, by snubbing him and hugging his calmly seated girlfriend, instead. The 26-year old singer, sure would win an award someday with this epic display of pettiness as he acted like Caesar was nothing but ‘Casper the freaking ‘maybe’ friendly ghost’.

 

Awkward pauses between each award presentation

For every wardrobe change, the crowd and even viewers who spent their hard earned cash to buy fuel in this recession just to watch the show, had to endure seconds of weird heart beats loud silence [which mostly came from Ycee and Humblesmith] before the next award presentation. This is a true story, I basically, either got up to wee, stalked my ex online and even found time to listen to two tracks from Olamide’s yet to be released album, during these moments.

 

Top acts were missing

This however was not due to the artistes boycotting the show, the truth behind this is that they arrived too late to be ushered to their reserved seats. Earlier editions of the award show, had always started late which was partially due t to artistes arriving late and delaying the entire show. No longer in the mood to accommodate their lateness, the organizers started the show without these artistes, broadcasting several empty seats to the world which made it look like the show was intentionally boycotted.

 

Phyno’s embarrassment

Phyno’s song, ‘Fada Fada’ was awarded the ‘Song Of The Year’ but the singer was never presented with his trophy upon getting to the stage. In what little respect he still has for the organizers of the show, he simply said; “Me I no get speech o, Thank u for the award”. 

 

Via our comment section, let us know those moments that were just awkward for you during the show.

  1. Just when I thought Tope was done, which one is ‘Casper freaking maybe friendly ghost again’ Tope ooo!!!!!!!! But wetin Wizzy do, no good at all…the guy use him grey hair and suit stand to greet am o, e no even acknowledge am, baba shun am ni kai kai, oga no be me u go use shine today.

  2. When Jude okoye and even the hosts won’t just let Bobrisky be..apparently the guy na celebrity now as even the celebrities themselves no know when them dey give undeserving people publicity

  3. In the next five years headies will be down the drain

  4. @royce…so true, the first award for the show was for olamide and he was never present to accept it… the Nigeria most prestigious award be like child’s play…. after dem go say na only Government no dey organise……..SMH

  5. They are short of awards. That’s why rookie of the year, didn’t get anything as well.

  6. Nigerians Artist are all comedians, just because Headies put a lot of screening on each artist before dey finally reward each artist for their excellent hard work..
    Medical doctors are all screen to their vain before they finally confirm them as a certified doctor.

    Phyno was ignoramous of his future as an artist…even young john ignore d award sumtin e might never be opportune again in his entire life, Olamide not surprise…. no wonder he cant manage his label successful….

    Simi was respectful,
    Daddy showky gave it all
    Remedies rock d floor
    Ayuba mark d register

    Despite Olamide dropping album every year.. Zero achievement.. His just a local king n noise maker.

    Wizkid…. just 2 album
    Compare wizkid & Olamide is just like 80% to 20%
    But wizkid took his feet despite his health condition
    and gave a lovely speech dat put joy on all the fans.

    Simi & Kiss show how much dey wonna grow in the muzic industry.

    We hardly respect what we have till it fade away…Headies will deal with all these professionally because the organisation his built around educated personnel.

    Headies will be there even when Olamide cant give out again.

    Headies will be there for long….phyno will watch at ome.

    Imagine tekno feeling extremely high….someone that struggle for years before God answers all his prayers.

    Headies am a fan…Respect.
    Tooxclusive am a fan. Respect
    Love Made in Nigeria.

    • I beg to differ with your analysis. First who told you young john might never be opportune in his entire life, the dude is a good amd talented producer that has so many prosperous years ahead of him in the industry. You said olamide didnt manage his label succesfully, tell me 3 record label in Nigeria that you know and if ybnl isnt not there then am convinced you know nothing about Nigeria music. You said he never achieved, he made a star in kesh and adekunle gold, and the guy is making money and name. I dont know if you a fan of wizkid, coz you never mentioned how disrespectful wizkid was to Ceaser(eva fiancee) or headies pro that you didnt notice they are going down the drain. And someone will come and tell me headies is Nigeria grammy…mtshewwww. Award is just a section acknowledging peoples effort. R kelly didnt win any grammies, but everyone knew him as a great singer

      • will you keep shut… why will you say that R Kelly has never won a Grammy,try to confirm before you post any trash..Google will be of help

      • Respect
        Words for word …????

    • Just like the nice commenter Damn said, add T to your name, make it TRASH. So upon all these shitty talk u typed, u forgot the fact that Phyno came out but went without the trophy itself, gosh why so dumb Trash? about Olamide, comparing King Baddo and Wizlion is so stupid of u because they “obviously” do different things and have different directions, so instead of calling the King a noise maker, make your noise and struggle getting the amount of cash he even spends on eating per morning. Receive sense and thank me later.

    • U re very stupid 4 mentioning olamide’s name in ur rubbish post. Dis shows aw little Ya brain is. Wat did olamide do again? Is it by force 2 attend d award ceremony. Oga ur name should av been trash Nt rash. U re just feel wit trash. Smellos…

    • bros u spoke my.mind u too much.but make headiies try to see that the award does not go to the wrong people….recall that of;burnaboy and Sean tizzle,reekado and lilkesh ,plus flavour has never won except yesterday not even with his Debute ‘OYI’ haba this ones are just too obvious.but I still love your analysis u er good

    • dnt conclude yt. u neva knew wt transpired bbtw headies n tekno

  7. So many things went wrong. 1- the camera men where not professionals. 2- I felt like I was watching 3gp on a large screen. 3- the sound was poor. 4-the people calling the award just made tins worst.

  8. Wizkid too full of pride

  9. Rash please put T at d beginning of ur name….. #trash!
    Idiot.. y can’t u self try and work hard like tekno and they should award you what u don’t deserve.. u are here acting like u be d ceo of headies it self… werey!

    • @damn why can’t you add “con” to your own name to make it condamn instead of condemn cos your full of trash. @Rash respect bro.

  10. Is so embarrassing that Phyno came out for an award, and at the end he went out empty handed. Headies should figure out things with our celebrities, cox every year of the award seems to be a war.

    • Headies got it wrong since the day they announced Rekado Banks as 2015 next rated. And if they didn’t change their way Headies will be the thing of History very soon.

  11. Politics as overrun the credibility of the show and for the first time in long run; I lost my interest on Headies ; I think they need to look back and see were they get it wrong….

  12. no mind the rash abi Na trash, the headies is getting what it bargain for…. burna boy boy complained years ago every one said he was saying shit, even if tekno has no album yet Menh dat next rated Na agbaya him go be for dere na…u say phyno was ignoramus Oya tell me do u know what height of embarrassment he got going up there and leaving without an award?wizzy is the bomb but snubbing that guy like that Menh it’s sooooo bad maybe the guy offended him from before but dealing with it that way is childish the typical baba nla…i hear you say young John Menh believe it or not weather the headies acknowledges him or not he is good and indeed “the wicked producer ” do u know how long they denied him that award… so my brother if Na work you they find for the organizers hand I wish u well but my advice is please always tell the truth cuz it will always set u free OK…. the HEADIES is BIASED if the GRAMMY’S was like dis it would av gone down the drain!!! imagine if more celebs boycotts the award next year what will be left of it??????

  13. Finally shaa..olamide f**cked up full time. Headies have to apologize to phyno,tekno big fool proud nonsense and for young John… He should learn from kiss nd simi.

  14. Finally shaa..olamide f**cked up full time. Headies have to apologize to phyno,tekno big fool proud nonsense and for young John… He should learn from kiss nd simi.

    • Mr man you are a confused being, Young John should learn from kiss and simi??.. I think some evil spirits av swallowed your sense.. Kiss is a musician and simi also but for the fact that she does beats and shez also a sound engineer no mean say she sabi reach YoungJohn…. Asin she no reach at all..so wat d fuck are you saying man… You better think be4 you type.

  15. Headies this year was sh#t, pardon me for using the word. It’s past 15years and Nigerias top event is still like a primary school graduation. No1, All the celebrities in Nigeria should have a platform or means of communication whereby they are called for rehearsals, am talking about those presenting the awards. Imagine Kcee and Harrysong, probably Harrysong couldn’t talk that was why he directed the presentation of the award to Kcee. No2, Headis suppose get better DJ and freaking booming sound system. No3, Dem hosts, lol. I won’t blame our mentality at all, we are Nigerians but at least let the celebrities try to portray a good lifestyle. Pimcee have spoken!??

  16. the HEADIES WAS WACK ,d visual d sound d arrangment.all was a zero.

  17. create think recreate !!! person wen use this as show headline get brain? he create b4 he think Na this kind Nigerians dey join mmm!!

  18. we should all pray for a better day to come so as to amend all dis mistakes and also to de improvement of our Nigeria music industry and headies award cos wen tins are not good it affect everybody.tank u guys for saying ur minds God bless

  19. Most of u pr*cks insulting these artist just say stuff with no chill. I’m sure if u saw them on ground you’d wanna Snapchat or sth and call them baba like groupies , but when u hear stories of how they reacted in a certain way, even without knowing why, y’all trash talk cause there’s no one by your side to smack the shit out of your faces when u misyarn. I’m sure y’all won’t do better if u were placed in their shoes

  20. d dj was a flop! simi was awarded for love dont care and he started playing leke lee’s version!

  21. d dj was a flop! simi was awarded for love dont care and he started playing leke lee’s version!

  22. @samtopad….stop sayin wot u r nt sure of….rkelly has a grammy ooo…stop feedn us rong info.

  23. @samtopad….stop sayin wot u dnt knw…rkelly won a grammy for i believe i can fly….get ur facts right b4 sayin trash.

  24. Prince trash…everly when someone is progressing he must have some badbelle people ploting his down fall.ur observation might be right but u mentioning olamide has falld ur hand,every yr wizkid ll be showing his self in d day of d award is he d only person singing in nigeria.but he tried dis yr.headies should upgrad and stop making silly mistakes wit dia award. Y did dey remove teckno and no award for he. But like tackno said (dem be God).d headies is becoming childish i must say.but i still love nigerian and dia spirit in d music industry.i just rep olamide,wizkid,mr eazi,teckno,phyno.ycee and others love u all

  25. I go with Rash… He spoke the truth… And that’s why all these yoruba illitrates that are senselessly supporting that noisemaker are attacking rash… Like M.I said…. “I’ve seen paper turn a man against his maker, nigga started getting bread and now he doesn’t respect the baker” boys of yesterday are now disrespecting Headies… I rest my case

  26. it’s fine bro
