“As for The Headies, I stopped entering for it”: Vector brags

Nigerian rapper, Olanrewaju Ogunmefun, aka Vector The Viper brought to light, the reason he, as an artiste stopped entering for the Headies and other awards.

In a post he tweeted on his Twitter account on Saturday he said he intentionally removed himself from getting involved in such competitions because he scrapped the idea of having to outdo other artists.

Adding that he stopped competing with other rappers because he knows he can “easily beat them one on one.”

Vector further revealed that he’s grown past hustling for awards and accolades; that all those don’t mean anything to him anymore, adding that he doesn’t also care about money or clout and only wants to make music.

“Intentionally removed myself from the idea that I have to outdo mode9. It’s not necessary.

“Ask him about me in the studio and he will tell you. I don’t care about clout. I just want to make music. Fck money too. That sht comes and goes anyway.

“I known how much my deal is worth as a rapper. But that’s not me because bragging only brings fake people around you anyways.

“Stay humble and live easy. Accolades are just accolades.

“Peace to everybody who deserves peace. As for the Headies, I stopped entering for it because I don’t want to compete with rappers (I can easily beat them on a one on one but that was Unilag).


I’m grown now. Awards actually don’t mean anything to me anymore. Let new people win awards,” he said.
The premier and leading Nigerian music award house, Headies had recently released list of nominees for the 14th edition of it’s award ceremony with artistes like Davido, Wizkid, and Burna Boy leading the nominations. With artistes like Tems, Fireboy, Oxlade, Omah Lay, and Wurld also finding their ways to the list.
