Popular Nigerian singer, Ikuforoji Abdulrahman Olaitan, popularly referred to as Oxlade, has said ‘Headies award’ isn’t a priority to his career.
Oxlade said this during an interview with BBC Pidgin.
The ‘Away’ crooner was nominated alongside Tems, Omah Lay, and Bella Schmuda for the next rated 2020 award.
However, he noted that Headies is simply one of the items that motivate artists but never a priority for him.
He said: “Headies isn’t a priority, If I win or earn it I’m grateful but I don’t see it as a priority for my career.
“I just see it together of these things that motivate you especially when you’re trying to form it within the industry.”
He added that he would like to be the most important afrobeat export from Africa in 5 to 10 years.
