Smooth Promotions, the organizer’s of the Headies Awards have made an update to the nominees’ list. In a statement released today, May 2nd, some nominations were withdrawn and changes were made in some categories.
UK based Nigerian Soul/RnB singer, Nonso Amadi was affected by this new development.
Amadi, who came to the spotlight courtesy of his hit single ‘Tonight’, was nominated in three categories.
According to Smooth Productions, ‘Tonight’ lost its two nominations “because it was released before the period under review”.
The singer was initially up for ‘best alternative act’, ‘best R&B single’ and ‘best vocal performance. With the revision, his only nomination is for ‘best alternative act’.
The Headies also made a correction in the ‘best producer’ category.
The statement reads;
“The Headies secretariat officially write to correct the following nominations which were given in error and are corrected as follows ”Virtuous Woman’‘ by Flavour was produced by Cobhams not Mastakraft and Selebobo produced ”Rara”, not Tekno.
”Tonight” by Nonso Amadi was removed from ‘Best RnB Single’ and ‘Best Vocal Performance (Male)’ categories because it was released before the period under review.
Mastakraft‘s nomination for Best Producer is ”Yawa” and ”Augment”, while Cobhams is nominated for ”Butterflies” and ”Virtuous Woman”.
