Ikuforoji Abdulrahman Olaitan, Nigerian music artiste, popularly known as Oxlade, does not consider Headies Awards as his career priority presently. He made the disclosure during an interview with BBC Pidgin.
The ‘Away’ crooner was nominated alongside Tems, Omah Lay, and Bella Schmuda for next rated 2020 award.
He however, noted that Headies was just one of the things that motivate artistes but certainly not a priority for him.
Said he: “Headies is not a priority, If I win or earn it I’m grateful but I do not see it as priority for my career.
“I just see it as one of those things that motivates you especially when you’re trying to make it in the industry”.
He added that he would love to be the biggest afrobeat export from Africa in five to 10 years time.
