Wizkid, Ice Prince, Samklef and Waje were hosted at The Headies secretariat on (Wednesday, May 25) for an official brief to record the 2011 awards theme song.
The project coordinators gave the artistes an overview of the coming awards and a tip of what the public should expect from this year's awards. There was a listening session to pick one from two beats produced by Samklef.
Reacting to the brief, Ice Prince thanked the organizers saying, "I'm privileged to be a part of this theme song and these guys are my friends so we should have fun on this project".
"This is our time, the last theme song was produced by old artistes" said Wizkid, sarcastically referring to Banky W and M.I.
Gorgeous vocalist, Waje said "I'm ready and capable to deliver on the theme song and fans should expect nothing but the best".
The project coordinator, talked about the previous theme song saying "In 2009, the theme song, "A Prize To Die For" was recorded by M.I, Kel and Banky W while Eldee Tha Don produced. The song was released a week before the Awards and did not have enough time to sink into the public. This was why we decided to use only the beat in 2010. This year, all hands are on deck to ensure an earlier release which will be followed with the video."
Other artistes involved in this project are 2Face Idibia, Illbliss and Mo'Cheddah. Other details of the awards will be made public soon.
