Mayorkun snapped up the Rookie award slightly beating label mate Dremo by votes, Chocolate City’s Dice Ailes followed up as second runner up in the tightly contested poll.
The results were announced a few hours ago as the Headies explained that all the nominees weren’t present at the venue for the opening performance which led to a change in the event flow.
Davido shared his excitement on social media saying – “ITS MAYORKUN BABY OOO!!!!!! CONGRATS LIL BRO!! YOU ARE OFFICIALLY THE ROOKIE OF THE YEAR!! NEXT YEAR MA BAD GAN!”
Mayorkun got signed to Davido Music Worldwide in April & immediately released ELEKO in the same month; ELEKO rose to become one of the biggest songs in 2016. He went on to release Yawa & his latest single – “Love You Tire” which features Mr Eazi.
Congrats to Mayorkun!
