How Authentic is the Hiphop World Awards?

The Hiphop World Awards 2008 was a blast!! Although many have praised the awards with one side of their mouths, others have openly questioned the organizer’s their criteria for and judge’s choice for nominees and winners. Of course we can’t quickly forget P-square’s manager and brother, Jude Okoye’s strong accusations against the organizers after last year’s event.

A critic is as good as his last review, I heard someone say, sometimes professionals put their career on the line when they endorse a brand or product that in the end does not meet up to consumer’s expectations. Here’s my point exactly: was the Hiphopworld awards authentic in their ratings? Maybe!

The Award organizers tagged the “Next Rated” category as the “Most promising upcoming officially unreleased act in the year under review.” And by this we assume that Hiphopworld Awards 08 endorsed Wande Coal as the next big explosion in the music industry ahead of the other nominees like Banky W and MI. To add salt to injury, 9ice was not even on that list – a decision that makes you wanna say “hmmn!”

Did Wande Coal deserve award? Of course he did, since the votes were in his favor. However, this is one category I strongly believe should be entirely left for judges to decide in order to boost the credibility of the Award category itself.

it came with the 'Next Rated' plaque!!

While Wande was still being ‘weaned’ by his Mo’ Hits Family, we witnessed and are still witnessing M.I, Banky W, and 9ice soar at higher heights!! as wande coal’s album is about to be launched, the brother’s already got 3 hot singles blowing up the airwaves all over the nation!!! i guess the judges can now heave a sigh of relief! Their credibility has been vindicated or has it?

Preparations for the HHWA 09 are in top gear and we hope the organizers would critically review all nominees “under the year of review” and produce a much more authentic Hiphopworld Awards.

My eyes are fixed on this year’s Next Rated category where ‘overgrown’ acts like Djinee and MP get VIP passes, (lol.. sorry but I haven’t stopped laughing since I saw the nominee list).  Djinee and MP could be tagged as officially unreleased acts but definitely not upcoming  so how do they fall under the Next Rated category?

Hiphopworld Awards ’09… hmmn… change must change abi?
