The known and popular artistes are topping the awards, which is known to be justified so far.

Surprisingly, this same day is also the slated date of a popular international artiste’s biggest show, in person of Wizkid, at United kingdom. Obviously, it clashes with the 2019 Headies award and led to other popular celebrities to attend one and forfeited the second as they can’t share themselves into two to mark attendance. 

Headies award is a annual program that comes up every year with different date, clashing with Wizkid’s show has made fans and lovers to have mixed feeling and confusion of the question, why same day? However, the reason be known is best to be answered by either the organizers of the Headies award or Wizkid.

Nigerian singer, Wizkid, first started recording music aged 11. He came into limelight in 2010 with the release of Holla at Your Boy from his debut studio album, Superstar. His second album, Ayo, then followed in 2014.

International recognition came in 2016 when Wizkid collaborated with Drake on global hit One Dance, reaching No.1 in 15 countries, including the US, the UK, Canada and Australia.

His third album, Sounds from the Other Side was released in 2017. 

Wizkid is currently playing his biggest UK shows at the O2 in London and O2 Victoria Warehouse in Manchester.

The figured out celebrities present at Wizkid show and absent at the Headies award are Tiwa SavageNaira MarleyReekadoRemaFireboyMaleek BerryBurna Boy and many others. 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

Following comments on Social media about these Headies award and WIZKID show fest,

“This is where it’s happening.. the 02 arena, where Wizkid carried everybody to…  forget #headies2019″.

“Wizkid become the First African Artist to sell out 02 arena 20,000 Twice in 2 consecutive years. Now he did it in grand style, mad tics price, mad concept. Everything abt this show is phenomenal. I am proud of u boyy”.

“Wizkid really carried the whole industry to O2. I have to admit. That’s some Legendary shit”.

“People are outside looking for tickets to buy! Starboy effect”.

“This Headies is trash, how will the nation’s finest acts not bother being present in its supposed biggest award show???

The atmosphere is so flat, no excitement, no glitz, no glamour just forced accent everywhere.

The star cast for Wizkid’s Fest even looks more exciting!”.

George Floyd: Family, Mayweather, Jamie Foxx, Al Sharpton say the final goodbye (Photos)

Published

on

 

Family and friends, politicians, celebrities civil rights activists gathered to lay George Floyd to rest in his hometown of Houston on Tuesday.

Gospel and poignant tributes capped the long farewell to the 46-year-old African American whose death ignited global protests against police brutality and racism.

Many of the guests joined in sharing memories of the man they called a “gentle giant” before his golden casket was to be conveyed by horse-drawn carriage to his final resting place by his mother’s grave.

George Floyd- the final farewell

Though it was a solemn occasion, The Fountain of Praise Church in southern Houston was filled with joyous music and words of fond remembrance for a kind and gifted man, whose savage death galvanized a worldwide movement.

George Floyd changed the world. And we are going to make the world know that he made a difference,” Al Green, the local US congressman, told the congregation.

“We have a responsibility to each one of them to make sure that we do not walk away today after having celebrated his life and not taking the next step… to assure the future generations that this won’t happen again,” he added.

Floyd died on May 25 as a white Minneapolis officer pressed a knee into his neck for almost nine minutes, his pleas of “I can’t breathe” becoming a rallying cry for protesters.

His death has come to embody fractured relations between communities of colour and police in the US and beyond as tens of thousands of protesters have taken to the streets.

The Fountain of Praise was the final stage in a series of ceremonies paying tribute to Floyd before he is buried.

In a day that capped more than two weeks of tension around the country, the theme inside the building was one of peace and hope as family members and friends took to the podium to share their grief, with civil rights leader the Reverend Al Sharpton delivering the eulogy.

Flowers were piled high outside the entrance to the church, attended by part of his family, before a portrait of Floyd whose open casket was visited by more than 6,000 well-wishers on Monday.

Some 500 guests — all masked due the coronavirus pandemic — filled the church, including actors Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, as well as boxing champion Floyd Mayweather who reportedly paid all expenses.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, who has visited the family, offered words of condolence to Floyd’s children in a video message urging them to “change the world for the better” in their father’s name.

“Today now is the time, the purpose, the season to listen and heal,” said Biden, who suffered his own tragedy with the deaths of a wife and two children.

“Now is time for racial justice… Because when there’s justice for George Floyd we will truly be on our way to racial justice in America.”

The funeral comes after the Minneapolis authorities pledged to dismantle and rebuild the police department in the city where Floyd died during an arrest for allegedly passing a counterfeit $20 bill.

Derek Chauvin, the 44-year-old white officer who was filmed pressing his knee on the handcuffed Floyd’s neck, faces up to 40 years if convicted on charges of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and manslaughter.

Floyd was born in North Carolina, but grew up in Houston’s predominantly African American Third Ward where he was remembered as a towering high school athlete and good-natured friend.

Demonstrators have taken to the streets for two weeks of the most sweeping US protests for racial justice since the 1968 assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.

The demonstrations have been marred by several nights of violence that focused attention at home and abroad on police brutality as numerous videos have emerged that allegedly show incidents of heavy-handed policing.

The Democrats have introduced legislation in both chambers of Congress, that they hope will make it easier to prosecute officers for abuse, and rethink how they are recruited and trained.

Some US cities have already begun to embrace reforms — starting with bans on the use of tear gas and rubber bullets.

But it is unclear what support the reform bill might find in the Republican-controlled Senate — or whether President Donald Trump would sign such legislation into law.
