Famous Nigerian singer Ikuforoji Abdulrahman Olaitan, often referred to as Oxlade, has said the ‘Headies award’ is not a priority for his career.
Oxlade said this in an interview with BBC Pidgin.
The ‘Away’ crofter was nominated along with Tems, Omah Lay, and Bella Schmuda for the next 2020 award.
However, he noted that Headies is just one of the things that inspires artists but it is certainly not a priority for him.
He said: “Leaders are not a priority, If I win or I win I’m grateful but I don’t see it as a priority for my career.
“I see it as one of the things that inspires you especially when you’re trying to do it in the industry. ”
He said he would like to be the largest afrobeat exporter from Africa in 5 to 10 years.
