MMMG act, Tekno has been disqualified from the 2016 Headies 'Next Rated' award category. It was the only category the 24-year-old singer was nominated in.
According to reliable information obtained by Thenetng, the jury took the decision to withdraw his nomination because he failed to participate in all of the required activities by organisers leading up to the event.
Official e-mails between the organisers and the singer's reps confirm all nominees for the category were required to take part in promotional activities including photoshoots, interviews and more.
An insider says all other nominees were available for all the activities.
As a result, Ycee, Aramide, Humblesmith and Mr. Eazi will now compete for the prize without the 'Pana' hitmaker.
The award ceremony will take place tomorrow, December 22, at Eko Convention Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos.
