Graphic report from Don Jazzy and Olamide face off at The Headies


-All the interesting details of the drama

The Headies 2015 has come and gone but there were moments from the event that cannot be forgotten in a hurry. ENCOMIUM Weekly presents a graphic account of happenstances as things went sour between Olamide and Don Jazzy at the event.


Both labels had their star talents: Kesh (YBNL), Korede Bello and Reekado Banks (Mavin Records) nominated in one of the major awards of the night – The Next Rated Act Award. This award was won by Mavin Records artiste, Reekado Banks who acknowledged that Lil Kesh could have won while he was on stage receiving his award.

The shade unfolded when YBNL singer, Adekunle Gold and his record label mates went on stage to receive his award for Best Alternative Song. After Adekunle Gold gave his thanks, Olamide took to the microphone and said: ‘Adekunle Gold, let’s be honest, this award belongs to Lil Kesh because Lil Kesh is our Next Rated Artiste”. He said ‘every single was a hit back to back from Shoki to Efejoku’.

The rapper said some unprintable words before dropping the microphone and walked down the stage.

When Mavin Records boss, Don Jazzy was giving his speech after he received a Special Recognition Award, he said he had told Korede Bello and Reekado Banks who he referred to as his children not to look at the list of nominees when it came out and promised he would buy them cars”. He fired back at Olamide saying, “Olamide, if you want the car, come and collect it’, after which he and the Mavin crew left the event.

Olamide took to twitter on January 2, 2016, at 2:30 am to rain abuses on Don Jazzy.
