As the date of the event is fast approaching, there is a buildup on who will go home with what award at the 12th edition of the prestigious Headies award which will take place on the 5th of May at Eko Hotel & suits.
Today, we focus on the Rookie category. The newbie category comes with a couple of familiar names and we are once again left to ponder on who truly deserves the plaque.
This award category has been previously won by many of the industry big names including, Mayorkun, Reekado Banks and Ycee.
The top two contenders for the award are Aquila Records’ flagship act, Airboy and Irapada crooner, Junior Boy.
Both act have impressed with their respective hit singles, although Airboy has moved on to drop his EP ‘Vibes’ after featuring Burna Boy on the remix of his hit single ‘Ayepo’, we cannot also deny that Junior’s collaboration with 9ice swept every corner of the streets in 2017.
Among the nominees are; Fargin crooner and internet music sensation, Teni, DMW’s latest signing, Peruzzi and Ghanaian boy wonder, KiDi who is a surprise addition to the list.
Both Airboy and Junior Boy appeal to the street with their music but the question is, who deserves to take the award home?
