Headies is just around the corner and the anticipation is getting high with different artistes competiting for several awards in different categories. One of the biggest category with a lot of bragging right is the covetous “Best Rap Album“.
This year we have four rap albums from four rappers that would be competing for the award. Olamide’s “Eyan Mayweather”, Lil Kesh’s “YAGI”, Falz’s “Stories That Touch” and iLLBliss’ “Powerful”.
Olamide’s “Eyan Mayweather” was released in November 2015 with several hit songs from album like “Eyan Mayweather”, “Don’t Stop”, “Melo Melo”, “Bobo”, “Sold Out”, “Lagos Boys” and “Where The Man”.
Lil Kesh’s “YAGI” released early ths year, 2016 was a success been his debut album he didn’t do too badly. He had a lot of hit tracks from the album which are still very much trending like “Semilore”, “Cause Trouble”, “Is It Because I Love You”, ‘Efejoku”, “Ibile”, “Life Of A Star”, “Problem Child” and “For You”.
Falz who happens to be the highest nominated artiste for this years Headies has been exception this year with hits back to back and his platnum selling album “Stories That Touch”. 2016 has been Falz’s year and he made very good use it. His album was definitely one of the best album released in 2015/2016. It has hit songs like “Soldier”, “Celebrity Girlfriend”, “Ello Bae”, “Clap”, “Soft Work”, “Karashika” and “Chardonnay Music”.
It’s really going to be a tough decision for the judges because each of these three albums are fantastically good and have good ratings and reviews from music critiques and pundits. The fact that this particular category is a non-voting category the judges would need to really get it right by doing a lot of research and analyses before they make the decision.
This is going to be the first time Lil Kesh would be going head to head with his mentor, Olamide in an award.
❖ Do you think Lil Kesh can pull it off from his Boss Olamide or would Falz snatch the award from the YBNL rappers?
❖ Who do you think would win the award for ‘Best Rap Album’ Olamide, Falz, Lil Kesh or illbless?
