Cheque, the Nigerian singer cum rapper, has taken a hit at The Headies for “failing to recognize my style of music”.


The organisers of the award announced the nominees for this year’s edition on Tuesday.

The ‘Zoom’ crooner’s name was obviously missing from the list as he wasn’t nominated in any category.

In a tweet — shortly after the announcement — the 27-year-old rapper expressed his displeasure with the award organisers, claiming he was overlooked in the hip-hop category.


Cheque, who is well known for adopting melody in his rap, also wondered why he wasn’t recognised in The Headies 2022 when other “melodic rappers like Lil Durk and Roddy Rich are idolized all over the world”.

The singer 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.”


This year’s edition of the Headies, which is the 15th of its kind, is billed to hold on September 4, 2022, in Atlanta Georgia.
