OPEN LETTER BY DJTIMMY TO HEADIES

(Unedited)
Dear headies 2013 organizers,
Let me start by saying i am not just disappointed in you but u have just proved to us that Nigeria is not getting better any time soon. you have been manipulated by a greedy and hopeless telecommunications company (mtn) because they sponsored your event and you forgot the ultimate rule that awards are meant to be impartial and should be decided by the general public especially when u told us to vote. you distributed the awards among 4 mtn ambassadors (iyanya, davido, praiz, and kcee) and just 1 glo ambassador won (waje). Is that not politics or is it coincidence? Now let us analyze.

The headies 2013 was a flop, your stage was shaped like a models runway, the choreographers just lacked ideas and didn’t interpret the music, i have seen a better performance from Nigeria’s got talent. What was the gulder ultimate search theme song that was being played throughout the event? Who on earth uses the mavin slaves -dr shit and tiwa gabbage as presenters of an event? Oh I forgot, the awards lacked credibility and substance. Why did majority of the winners come from backstage, instead of coming from the crowd like it should be? I watched nickelodeon kids choice awards this year and it is far better than the over hyped headies which was not properly planned and hurriedly done #shame

Can you explain to us how olamide won best rap album? olamide has commercialized rap, we cannot tell if he is a rapper or a singer. As far as i am concerned, he is just an entertainer like dbanj. so where does vector, phyno, reminisce,ice prince and illbliss who represent real hip hop/rap stand? Don’t forget that there is a big difference between commercial rap and real rap. all he sings about is remind us that he is from the street but to be sincere terry g is more street than olamide and terry is not even a rapper #justsaying
How can harry song win most mtn most downloaded caller tune song for rip Mandela? when did Mandela die and do u want to compare that dead song with other club bangers in the same category? Simple, it is because harrysong is a label mate to your mtn ambassador (kcee). In my opinion jawon, waje,2 face, Clarence peters , blackmagic and davido deserved there awards. how can wizkid not win any  award? Someone who has been the most consistent and sought after this year. i am sure wizkid declined an interview from you that’s why he didn’t win. in fact wizzy should be the artiste of the year. Why did dbanj, burnaboy, wandecoal, psquare, flavour not win anything? oh i know why, it is because they are Glo ambassadors.
Now explain to me why Sean tizzle won the next rated award and he was in the same category as burna boy who is obviously more relevant and talented. We all know Sean tizzle has the same old boring style and we can always predict his next song. Phyno too deserved the next rated award and how on planet earth did d-tunes win producer of the year? Someone who recycled 1 beat 5 times (kukere, your waist, mama eh,lenu by spicy, kilogbe). so where does ace producer del b that produced the national anthem limpopo stand? You are all insane!!!!!!

Infact, headies, mtn and Pdp should merge and start a new political party for the upcoming election in 2015. it should be named mhdp( mtn headies democratic party). we all know exactly what happened, mtn agreed to sponsor your event and they gave you the list of who should win. our votes did not count; do you think we are blind and foolish like yourself? Instead of your greedy mtn sponsors to improve their network, reduce tariffs and contribute to the growth of the nation, they will be sending me sms on how they gave free ipad and mp3 to those who sent a sms to a code. They spend all their time looking for how to extort customers and scam us with their ridiculous offers (free airplane and a trip to the moon)
i am sorry to say sir but if u continues this way your company will fold up and collapse because you are not an epitome of integrity. i am speaking on behalf of majority of Nigerians who know the truth and are not afraid to say it. those who feel this letter is nonsense should not forget to curse, insult and threaten me on @baddestdjtimmy. after my last 2 open letters, i have been insulted, chewed up, spit out, as being very jobless, hopeless and a broke laptop dj. you guys don’t know how much i love the insults so it means i am doing a good job and it makes me stronger. So in conclusion, if u have the opportunity to host another award show, learn from your mistakes and let our votes count this time. Let those who deserve it win, is that too much to ask?-DJ TIMMY

The White ‘Black Heart’

The White ‘Black Heart’.
The things that plague my heart are colossal, even far beyond anyone’s imagination. Right there where I sat down, my subconscious suddenly wandered off and so many thoughts bottled up to one focal point came spiralling down at the exact instance. No surprise, it was the same old intense feeling of dismay and anger. What gives the white man the right to call Africans “Black at heart”?! What justification is there for this assertion?! Up till this moment, I have not been able to grasp this audacious fallacious assumption. They referred to us at black at heart just like our skin colour: the height of racism in the 18th/19th century.
Retrospectively, I remain bewildered. I mean we welcomed these people to our land with open hands and all they did was repay our hospitality with evil. They betrayed us and killed our people, subjected us to what they could not dare propose for their own children. Indeed, to a very large degree, the Berlin conference of 1884/1885 continues to stand as the pivotal point of the official demise of unity in Africa. They racially referred to as black at heart even in a bid to establish their authority and selfish interest and destroy our identity and culture. Till date, we remain scattered and enemies of ourselves within our own God given continent. Contrary to what some might think, I am no racist, I simply identify myself with the realist school of thought. I STAND NOT to be corrected in my opine of the white man as the reason for the disunity and displacement which is widespread in Africa today. I weep for Africa. The earlier we come to the realisation of a need to forgive one another for the sins of the white man, the better for us.
FRENCH PROVERB: “La coleur de la pray nest pas la couleur du Coeur (Black skin does not mean black heart).

-Akinseesin Oluwadamilola.
