Few hours after the end of the 12th edition of Headies Awards, organizers of the show have been accused of rigging the award for the category of ‘Best Performer’.

This came after Ebuka Obi-Uchendu announced Yemi Alade as Best Performer of the Year, while Tiwa Savage’s name appeared on the screen. Though Yemi Alade got the award, the Organizers of the show suffered severe backlash, as Nigerians on social media  questioned the mistake which they described as rigged.

Here are some comments from those who watched the award show below;

@Kikelom “Headies with their rigging, TV showed Tiwa Savage as winner but Ebuka announced Yemi Alade as the winner, who’s is deceiving who?”

@Iamifegbolahan “I thought I was the only crazy one who saw that, I smell something fishy… Headies when una go change?!!!

@Soaddiamond1 “Headies we are confused ooo… come and clarify who actually won.”

@Stevechuks “They Sold Tiwa’s award or they sold Yemi’s award, one of them.NIGERIA.”

@Jonathandosma “Winner Yemi Alade, Name on Award Tiwa Savage, something is fishy.”

@OvieO “Ebuka mentioned Yemi Alade, but the screen says Tiwa Savage. How come?!

@Iambusayo “Until INEC will announce Buhari as the winner of the 2019 election while another candidate will be displayed on the screens, that’s when you people will take things like this seriously.”

@Iam_Poje “Headies be fraudster.”

@Lamdauniverse “What just happened, I saw an award been presented to Yemi Alade and a display of Tiwa Savage!!! Please you guys should stay one place oh #Headies2018

@Iamdannex “Headies confused people. Ebuka said Yemi Alade but na Tiwa Savage show for screen.”

Here’s the video which caused the whole confusion;

On the other hand, Tiwa Savage won the best collabo of the year at the just concluded Headies alongside Wizkid for ‘Malo’. She contested with the likes of Skales,, Burna Boy, Ycee, Maleek Berry and many other Nigerian celebrities.
