Tekno has been disqualified from the Headies despite being nominated for the ‘Next Rated’ category. Contesting with Ycee, Aramide, Humblesmith and Mr Eazi, the ‘Pana’ hit star misses out on the chance due to his refusal to honour the category and support the campaign as nominees are expected to attend promo activities for the event, and also take part in promotion for the category sponsor, Hyundai but Tekno failed to submit himself for engagements, promo campaign photos and more.
Tekno had earlier took to Instagram to say;
“‘Next rated after how many years! Let’s be honest pls”.
the very first time the nomination list was released.
In 2013, Burna Boy came close to disqualification for not submitting himself to promo campaign activities.
In 2012, Chuddy K, was disqualified due to information that he released an album in 2010 for a nominee in that category must be an unreleased artist. He was replaced with Flowssick.
