Nigerian music superstars, Wizkid and Naira Marley, have taken a huge swipe at the Headies awards after their snub yesterday.

Both Wizkid and Naira Marley missed the award ceremony which held at the Convention Centre of Eko Hotel and Suites from late on Saturday night into the early hours of Sunday.

While the prestigious award ceremony was going on, Wizkid and a host of other top Nigerian acts were performing to over 20 thousand capacity crowd at Wizkid's Starboy concert at the O2 arena in London.

It is yet unknown if fixing his concert on the same day as the Headies was a deliberate attempt by Wizkid to crash the award but his absence and the fact that he had almost everyone who is anyone in the Nigerian music industry in London pretty much affected the quality of the award.

As if that wasn't bad enough, the mega superstar then went on Twitter to affirm Naira Marley's tweet in which he downplayed the significance of the award.

The controversial singer wrote "Legwork bigger than headies 2019" after his performance in London to which Wizkid replied with a hundred per cent emoji.

Despite having what was definitely his best year, Naira Marley was snubbed by the organisers of the Headies while Wizkid, despite being nominated for a few awards, failed to win any.

Having heard of the negative feedback that the award ceremony received, the two artists decided to add more salt to injury.
