Fast-rising rapper, Cheque has taken to social media to call out The Headies for snubbing him at the 2022 edition of the prestigious Nigerian music award.
Cheque Slams The Headies
KanyiDaily recalls that The Headies had announced the nominees for this year’s award scheduled to take place on Sunday, September 4, 2022, at the COBB Energy Performing Arts Center in Atlanta, USA.
Reacting to the development after he failed to make the nominee list, Cheque took to his Twitter page to express disappointment with the award organizers, claiming he was overlooked in the hip-hop category.
The 27-year-old rapper, who is well known for adopting melody in his rap, also wondered why he wasn’t recognized in The Headies 2022 when other “melodic rappers like Lil Durk and Roddy Rich are idolized all over the world”.
The rapper added that despite the snub, he will continue to drop “hits” songs.
“Another year and the Headies fails to recognize my music in the rap category, while melodic rappers like Durk and Roddy are idolized in the rap scene worldwide,” he wrote.
“That’s why Hip-hop has remained stagnant here but it’s calm. I will still be dropping hits even if I don’t get my flowers,” Cheque wrote.
