Headies 2013: Between nominee Orezi and winner Waje

Rihanna crooner Orezi isn't happy that he lost out to Waje in the Best Reggae/Dancehall category at the Headies yesterday. He took to twitter a few hours ago to express his displeasure (his tweet above). Waje responded by tweeting what you see below..(she's since deleted it).
@Wajemusik: So a fellow nominee subs me, hahahhaha Pity

I love 'I Wish'. I think it's a beautiful song and deserved to win. See more Tweets after the cut.

When you get nominated, get people to vote. The more votes, the more your chances of winning. Simple!

Wats wrong wit diz new comers sef... Headiies award na for small artist..

Dey ad no option dan to include dem #oshamo davido na smal boy, phino na beginner... Waje waje waje na average artist,, d rest na zombies nd even diz photocopy orezi guy wey dey na na na lik homo

Anonymous said...

I think Headies Award people are to blame, there should be Best Ragga Dance Hall Song and Best Ragga Song, but I think Orezi deserves the Best Ragga Dance Hall song sha because there's nothing Dance Hall in waje's song (I Wish) but its a dope ragga song. *ThatFunctionGuy*

I support him, I prefer his song to waje's I wish.. Her song was so dry, orezi's rihanna was dope, that's what u call reggae and not her song.

Waje may need to go back and learn the meaning of the word "sub" before she uses twitter further.

Waje's Reply was so so wrong. Which one is the ' a fellow nominee subs me'.
U won't see all this rubbish from foreign artiste lyk bruno mars, drake or beyonce and the rest. That's y they win Grammy awards.
Waje ur reply was uncalled for!!!
Well HEADIES should be blamed. Orezi 's 'rihanna' is a dancehall song while Waje ' I wish' is a reggae song. But when it comes 2 songs making rave Orezi beats waje hands down. Can't remember wen last I heard I WISH on the radio..

mercy macauley said...

Orezi or whoever u re, there's no need feeling bad @ all. Like Waje has rightfully said, u all re winners and 2014 is just around the corner. So instead of ranting via twitter, kindly use, the time and start work already before it gets too late. Congratulations to u all. Merry green xmas.chEers.

Jerry D'poronsi said...

BTW Waje got 133k+ twitter followers, Orezi got just a lil over 17k. Am not by any means implyin dat awards are won via num of twitter fflwer but waje obviously got more fans than Orezi. Her fans prolly voted her. Makee orezi pack well.

Osarhiemen Agbonkonkon said...

Like Waje said, he shld wait for next year.

oreoluwa akinsuroju said...

I don't think he meant any hard feelings. Waje shouldn't have rubbed salt on the injury with that tweet tho.its normal 4 him to feel disappointed,he's human afterall.

Gistyinka Blog said...

You are right @cute G it human to feel disappointed.. But it shame to him that R&B singer won ahead him and General Pype

ts really funny how judgmental some people can be. @Iamorezi didn't show bitterness in his tweets so I wonder why some peeps are referring to him as childish. He even went further to say he's got respoect for waje who's like a big sis so what's the fuss about?? Waje is gifted vocalist, Orezi is a talented singer & I appreciate their music. No point causing beef between 'em two. Congrats to Waje, Goodluck to Orezi. Wish 'em well##

nella said...

Linda it's unfair how you twist your headlines.you know very well that 70% of your readers would dive in the direction 'it is thrown at them. Reading his tweets, I didn't see where he dissed Waje. He only expressed a common feeling and retweeted some of his fans' tweets... Waje reacted too fast and must have felt guilty afterwards,hence deleting hers.

MADEMOISELLE said...

I don't really see anything wrong with what he tweeted

arc.afolarin said...

It's despicably appalling the mannerism being exhibited by some contributors each time I log in to read articles on LIB.The more reason I just hate commenting because it's needless arguing with some people whose rational thoughts needs thorough probing.
Some just delight in spewing spurious irking statements solely because they have the English Alphabets at their finger tips.Rather than give intellectual analysis,they instead resort to giving curses,abuses and derogatory statements.Perhaps,that's the unfortunate trend in vogue.

Little wonder the illiteracy rate in this country gets higher on a per second basis.Especially when young graduates and undergraduates who are supposedly expected to be tomorrow's leaders make repulsive statements that ought to be ignorantly uttered by an illiterate....

Wonder how hopeful we can be if one of the platforms(Entertainment) that affords the youths the solemn opportunity to channel their skills into a meaningful cause in a bid to avoid being engaged in social vices is reek of dishonesty.
As much as I had always loved and adored Waje,her "I WISH" song didn't merit the category for which she was nominated for and won.Though I can't wholly pride myself to be a thorougbred music analyst,far from it but the genre for which it was nominated for was nothing but a mockery of the Entertainment industry and I can only see this "grand act" exercerbating an already worrisome nature.
It's only capable of ushering an harbinger of doom which already hovers impatiently on the horizon of this country.If an award can't be made credible....Why organise it?,guess that's a question for the gods.
Yet so many still hastily wrote repulsive comments about Orezi's tweets even though he never evidently meant no harm,contrary to what some negatively-stereotyped minds already envisaged.What is however curiosly disturbing was his expectance to remain silent over an unjust act,a daylight robbery capable of dwarfing every moral inherent in a hardworking guy.

I want to believe Waje's conquest had more to do with the song's beats rather than the lyrical contents,if that's the case,it ought to have been stipulated so we can have our doubts doused.My only issue with the genre it was nominated for was the inclusion of "..dancehall",what makes that song a dancehall music?.Even a novice wouldn't dare give a reggae dance steps to "I WISH".

Only God can save us from the abyss this country continually plunge when we have youths that can't be rational in their analysis.I can bet that not everyone has even seen the video but they don't just want to be left out....they grin with delightful pride at seeing their posts even when it merits the hall of fame for the "Most ill-thought" comment of the decade.
I'm doubly sure Orezi's perceived fuss has more to do with Waje's conquest of a wrong genre with a beautiful music though than his failure at not being the winner.
As the saying goes,a gold fish has no hiding place.R.Kelly hasn't won more than 3 Grammy awards with all his legendary R&B hits yet he ranks as one of best,if not the best of his generation in his preffered genre.
Just keep up the good work,if it doesn't come in the way of "...a #20k award"(Cossy Orjiakor 2013),it will surely come in the form of 'ego'.
Kudos to u both (Waje & Orezi),they are both hardworking dudes.
