It has become a big difficulty to successfully organize an award show in Africa without flaws and mistakes and believe me, Nigerians will always be out there to pick up this mistakes and trend it.
One of the biggest award shows in Africa, SoundCity MVP Awards which was held yesterday at the Eko Hotel and Suites Lagos is currently trending on Twitter following their huge mistakes at the show.
First, only DjNeptune would understand why he decided to play Simi’s ‘Joromi’ song as Maleek Berry stepped out to pick up his Pop Artiste of the year award. I guess Neptune wasn’t in support of Soundcity’s Choice and preferred differently.
Also, There’s this version of Sarkodie’s ‘Painkiller’ song that only Toke Makinwa and the SoundCity officials have listened to, which he featured Patoranking instead of Runtown. When it was time to announce the winner in the best collaboration category, Oh well…… it was Sarkodie Ft. Patoranking – Painkiller. we couldn’t stop laughing.
But then we can only hope that as the year goes on we develop our skill set and professionalism in order to avoid these rather unnecessary scenarios.
