The Headies organizers have come under fire from Nigerian record producer Sunday Nweke, also known as Masterkraft, for choosing to ignore him for many years despite his contribution to the music industry.
On May 24, the award’s sponsors revealed the finalists for this year’s competition.
In the producer of the year category, Mastercraft was not included on the list of nominees.
On Monday, around the time the award ceremony was taking place in the US, Masterkraft resorted to Twitter to voice his discontent with the organizers.
Despite his contributions to the music industry, Mastercraft claimed that The Headies “had decided to ignore me for years.”
“And while I can, I have been a blessing to this Naija music industry for years and will forever be a legend to anybody who chooses to be excellent, exceptional and special in the music space of this continent. And while the @The_Headies have chosen to ignore me for years,” he wrote.
“I will never give up or quit !!! I’m gonna forever leave this world a legend and a blessing to many. Every single year I come thru and I carry @2niteFlavour @phynofino @wizkidayo @davido @burnaboy @Olamide and as many as I have been blessed to work with.
“On my back … and I’m still not recognized for whatever reasons best known to the headies is crazy shaaa !!!! Congrats to my Hommie @beatsbysarz for winning producer of the year after 1billion years of being a co Genius as myself !
“We move, It’s all love !!!! I’m gonna be here for a long time y’all and expect the best !! I was gonna say fuck u headies but again lemme keep it cool !!!! God is the greatest !!!! Thanks @BankyW @kennyogungbe.”
