Nigerian singer, Jahbless has compared the Headies Awards with its American counterpart, the Grammy awards. According to a write up he shared on social media, the reason why the Grammy awards is a highly respected event is because of the amount of credibility put into organizing it. He spoke of how the Headies awards show can attain such height if the level of professionalism obtainable at the Grammies can be given to the organization of the event.
Grammys are not meant for Nigerian Musicians must have been an headline from the press to draw attention to Ayo Animashahuns write up , Love it or hate it , the Grammy Awards are usually the one evening all year that most of music proffessionals pays attention to all over the world , Its literary the world cup of music (Final). Not because the plaque is gold, as a matter of fact, a grammy plaque is less than $15 (N5250) ,the headies plaque manufacturing price might be more expensive than a grammy plaque but Grammy Awards are seen as the most important and respected prizes in the music business, so winning one is pretty important to Musicians, regardless!
Musicians are nominated for a Grammy award by music companies, and the winners are chosen by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. Reviewing sessions are held by more than 150 experts from the recording industry.Academy members are required to vote based upon “Quality Alone”, and not to be influenced by sales, popularity, chart performance, personal friendships, regional preferences or company loyalty.
No doubt that the honor is a major boost to an artist’s career. 80% of nominees and winners see spike in sales immediately after the Grammys ,the grammys effect, and not just from a financial perspective.The financial benefits of the award can be tremendous for big touring acts as well. As ticket sales sky rocket.
For Songwriters and producers who don’t really appear on camera, it’s [particularly] big deal.”grammys recognizes the team who works behind the scenes as much as the guys infront of the microphone , songwriters and producers makes 100-150% earnings boost after a Grammy win.
I strongly hope the headies would be more credible, bigger and better, we shouldn’t also limits ourselves on taking on that world stage , convince the world that we gat real talents here, if Ladysmith Black Mambazo’s a south african group got 2 nominations and won the grammys , if angela kidjo has the grammys , femi kuti and King Sunny Ade get nominations, i think a Nigerian Artiste is closer to the grammys than we think . #Contatec
