As the governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo Olu, stormed Atlanta in the United States to deliver Headies awards, Nigerians expressed their rage at him.
At the just held 2022 Headies Awards, singers like Olamide, Wizkid, Burna Boy, and others shine.
Wizkid received Album of the Year for his highly praised single, Essence, while Adekunle Gold earned Songwriter of the Year. Rapper Olamide won the Best Rap Album of the Year award.
A video that surfaced online shows the governor of Lagos State presenting Wizkid with an award while dressed differently than usual.
Sanwo Olu was seen wearing a neck chain as he gave the award to a Wizkid representative.
Nigerians criticized Sanwo Olu for attending a music award in another nation while major infrastructures in his state were collapsing in response to the video.
Sanwo was also criticized for consistently missing out on formal school events whenever he was invited.
