The topic of the next rated category in the upcoming headies awards has resulted in a debate between music lovers.
BNXN & Zinoleesky
A few days after the Headies awards announced a new prize for the “Next Rated” category, debates among music fans have erupted over which new artist deserves the prize.
On Tuesday, March 1, 2022, the Headies Awards organizers made a special announcement regarding the overall rebranding of the award ceremony itself, which included taking the venue to the United States, giving the next rated category winner a 2022 Bentley Bentayga car, and introducing six new award categories, among others.
With the upgraded prize for the next rated category, debates have sprung up on Twitter, with a stronger force pointing towards singers BNXN (formerly known as Buju) and Zinoleesky as the two leading acts to contest for the prize.
Although names like Ruger and Ayra Starr are included in the conversation, the Zinoleesky vs. BNXN debate was more rampant. While some factions believe Marlian music’s Zinoleesky deserves the award, another faction believes the independent BNXN deserves to win the 2022 Headies Awards “Next Rated” category.

You people are overrating Buju on this app abeg.
Zinoleesky is so clear.

Zinoleesky has more hit songs and deserves the Headies Award. Buju is just good at remix and jumping on people’s songs.#headies #zinoleesky #Buju

My take in the headies next rated category:
Zinoleesky deserves it more, but lots of things might work against him, including the past NDLEA ish
Buju has done better than Ruger in the past few months
Ayra Starr riding on the Don Jazzy pedigree might make her favorite!
