Triple MG singer, Tekno has been disqualified from the “Next Rated” award category in upcoming Headies Awards.
The disqualification according to the organisers follows Tekno’s failure to meet the requirements of making himself available for promotional activities that required his presence including photoshoots, interviews and more.
Below is the letter from the organisers obtained by NET;
The “Next Rated” was the only category Tekno was nominated in. The contest is now among Ycee, Aramide, Humblesmith and Mr. Eazi.
The Pana cronner’s disinterest probably shouldn’t come as a surprise, as he had earlier expressed his displeasure at being nominated for this category in an Instagram post he later deleted.
He wrote; “Next Rated after how many years? Let’s be honest please.”
And his fans on social media share the same sentiment;
HEADIES got it wrong again this year, why nominate TEKNO for next rated after how many years.
he's ontop of his game, why belittle him
