However, these set of celebs are expected to be live at the Headies award but not. Don’t you think something is behind the two clashed show and award? 

Its shocking but applaudable alongside for these mentioned celebs to be live at Wizkid show, not minding if they will be awarded at the Headies award, some accolades should be given to Wizkid for gaining these celebs’s trust, regardless of how it was done, if persuaded, brided, or
