“I respect the Headies and its organizers”, Wizkid denies walking out of the Headies angry
Contrary to what popular blogger, Linda Ikeji reported about Wizkid walking out of the Headies yesterday “in anger”, a story she backed up with photos, the Jaiye Jaiye crooner has debunked such tales.
Although he didn’t deny walking out of the event, the music star debunked rumors of him leaving in anger as reported because no table was reserved for him. (Lemme break it down) Wizkid did come to the event and yes he arrived late, totally understandable as he had 6 shows over the weekend during which he performed in Port Harcourt and Lagos. He was reported to have left the Headies after getting into the hall discovering that no seat had been reserved for him. Wizkid was seen alongside Shaydee as they left the event together.
Clearing the air via his social media pages about the rumored bad blood, Wizkid said, “Reports making rounds is I walked out of the Headies “angry”.. I respect the Headies and its organizers nd no I didn’t…“. He also backed the Headies following criticisms that the award was poorly conducted saying, “It’s not easy doing shows like that in Nigeria with little or no sponsorship so let’s give that credit to the “Headies” for always doing it…”.
He further congratulated Davido, Olamide, Patoranking and the other winners of the night…..
Minutes after Wizkid sent out the congratulatory messages to winners, Davido replied, tweeting ‘Eleniyan’…..
Celebrities didn’t not fail to bring IT at the just concluded 2014 Hip-Hop World award, also called The Headies.
Hosted by Toke Makinwa and Basket Mouth,the show was attended by a bevy of stars and were lucky to get their red carpet (and some other) pictures, the likes of Tiwa Savage, Davido, Olamide, Pasuma,Toolz, Saeon, DJ Spinall, Cynthia Morgan, DJ Xclusive, Yemi Alade, KWAM1 and his daughter HoneyB, Dr. Sid, Stephanie Coker, Tosyn Bucknor, Beverly Naya, Olamide, Jesse Jagz, Black Magic, Uti Nwachukwu, Yaw, Sarah Ofili, DJ Lambo, Niyola, Efa, Illbliss, Olu Maintain, Dakore Akande, Sheyman, AY Makun, Eva Alordiah, Emma Nyra, Victoria Kimani, Chuddy K, DJ Caise, Tunde Ednut….thelist is endless.

Ice Prince To become D’usse Cognac Brand Ambassador
In an exclusive report by blog site that1960chick.com, Nigerian rapper Ice Prince, is well on his way to becoming a brand ambassador for D’USSE, a brand of cognac said to be rap mogul, JayZ’s top choice as far as cognacs go.
According to them:
It’s no secret Jay Z’s drink of choice these days is D’USSE cognac.
Jay has publicly endorsed D’usse for two years now, he even raps about it on wifey Beyonce’s smash hit Drunk In Love when he said “That D’USSE is the sh*t if I do say so myself” and famously poured it into one of the three Grammy awards he won in 2013.
And now it looks like Ice Prince is about to join him to endorse the premium French cognac. Multiple sources have told me that the rapper is being snapped up to become the brand ambassador for the premium VSOP.
Jay Z’s cousin & Roc Nation Executive Briant “Bee-High” Biggs was recently in the country as a representative of the brand to finalize the deal between D’usse and Ice Prince’s reps. I haven’t been told the exact sum the deal is worth but it’s a LOT…nice early Christmas gift for Zamani.
Ice Prince’s reps could not be reached for a comment.
