Headies 2022 List: Nigerians Call Out Organizers For Pitching Portable Over Kizz Daniel And Snubbing Victony




Kizz Daniels and Portable

Some Nigerians have called out the organizers of the Headies 2022 award over its nomination list released on Tuesday 24th May 2022.

While Wizkids bagged ten nominations, Davido, Burna Boy, Olamide, Portable and others also bagged multiple nominations.

However, despite having the most shazamed song in the world and repeatedly dropping hit songs Kizz Daniel got one nomination while Victony got snubbed.

This angered many Nigerians as they took to the microblogging platform Twitter to call out the organisers of the award.


While many claimed that Kizz Daniel is being underrated in the music industry, others question why portable will get two nominations and the father of twin boys would have one nomination.

@DanielRegha wrote: “The Headies Award is a big joke, the organizers are too biased. How can Portable who has no hit song bag multiple nominations whereas Victony gets snubbed; & Kizz Daniel gets only one nomination despite producing better music than Wizkid, Davido & Co. This is beyond insulting”

@IfedayoSkillz wrote: “Kizz daniel already said the music industry is ruled by Cabal, he’s not ready to kiss anybody’s ass in the industry hence the mediocre treatment he gets from them from time to time. Kizz Daniel is an A-list artiste and he deserves better recognition than what Headies is doing”

@YoungTife wrote: “Next time, when we say Kizz Daniel is underrated and you argue, I’ll personally curse you Fgs, he dropped “Lie” and the song a fucking hit. Where’s the song in the headies nominations? Not to even talk about Barnabas y’all enjoyed! Omo… Y’all should getat abeg”
