Today’s Headies analysis will be on the voting category for the best conceptualist, best directed and most exciting video in the year under review. This award goes to the video director. In no particular order, the nominees are:
- Jamb Question (Simi) – Mex
- Crazy (Seyi Shay) – Meji Alabi
- The Sound (Davido Feat. Uhuru & Dj Buckz) – Sesan
- Katapot (Reekado Banks) – UnLimited LA
- Baby Jollof (Solid Star Feat. Tiwa Savage) – Clarence Peters
With the developments in the Nigerian music scene, it is not surprising that all the videos nominated in this category, all have perfect video quality, however we will be choosing our best based on the story of the song in relation to the video and the costume.
With those criteria, we have selected two videos; Seyi Shay’s “Crazy” directed by Meji Alabi and the Clarence Peters directed “Baby Jollof”. Although we feel Meji Alabi should win the award, Clarence may be the one to go home with the award because he is far more popular than his competition and that will play a big factor, considering that this is a voting category.
We are also wary of the fact that Reekaddicts and the Mavin factor can shift the award to Sesan for his work on Reekado Banks’ “Katapot”. Let’s wait and see what happens
