They called me a mad man. They told me that I was divisive. They also said I was incendiary.

But right in front of us, everything I have predicted is coming to pass.
Afrobeats is a mesmeric blend of #WestAfrican and Black American music that has quickly become a global pop phenomenon.

🎵 Here are 5️⃣ widely successful subgenres whose unique rhythms and melodies will instantly grab your ear.

.@Omah_Lay sending you love for all you’ve gone through.

@JoeyAkan nice podcast!
 
After losing his father at 13, Omah Lay kept his family alive by illegally refining crude oil in the creeks. After escaping death from the military, and from angry cultists looking for payback, superstardom hasn't washed away the demons.

Written, performed, produced AND owned by @temsbaby. Congrats sis💙
 
You know what a better punishment will be for Portable against threats? Ban him from attending the award ceremony.

He won't travel with the team to the US, for fear of potential physical violence.

But him music no do you anything. Reprimand the artist, not the art.
 
So far, I have you people on the back foot.

i’m sure Burna Boy isn’t aware headies nominated him up till now
 
 
I dont care about Portable o. He's insufferable.

I'm just concerned about the principle of it. And want all the new and hidden rules made public. If the Headies have a morality charter, then share it out, and codify it.

Headies: Musical excellence and Righteous Character.
Replying to @JoeyAkan
If fairness, equity and inclusion are your principles, then share the full scope of considerations for nominations. So far, you've only outlined artistic excellence as your criteria. But people are being disqualified for character. Please share your behavioural demands too.

They're both innocent until proven guilty.
 
Police recently announced investigations into two artists.

Headies ignore the bigger one, ban the smaller one.

He threatened the other artistes.
Replying to @Prolific_jackk
That's not why he was disqualified. Read the release.

Thisssss!! The fact that you feel justified doing something, doesn’t change that the precedent it could set might just be disastrous
 
 
Headies did not ban Portable for threatening other nominees. They said that only "accentuated" their decision.

Read the announcement, and understand it. He was banned for being the subject of a police investigation for his careless statement on criminal activities.

Today is Wednesday sir. Where's the podcast?

I agree with Joey Akan. They can deplatform portable for what he did or said especially when it contravenes the values of HipTV and Headies awards. But would they do the same for other guys? The more ‘refined’ and indispensable ones.

Listened to Joey Akan’s space, very sound mind he’s got! I see a lot of people acting brand new like your favs don’t be openly beating niggas up,throwing gang signs in music videos and shooting clubs up, portable is just an easy target. End of story
 
Your job is to cast shiny trophies, and hand them over to people who have shown artistic distinction, while making your own bank.

It's a music award show. A platform to celebrate artistic brilliance. Not a moral tool for censoring behaviour.

You're not the police or NBC.
 
Today is Afrobeats Intelligence Podcast Day!
 
Joey Akan Retweeted ·  
Let me recommend some really interesting podcasts to you, I promise you will love them.

A thread 🧵

1. Afrobeats Intelligence: The name is almost self explanatory. The host, @JoeyAkan interviews the biggest afrobeats stakeholders. The episodes are always so enlightening.

 
Joey Akan Retweeted ·  
There's an unnecessary paternalistic tone with this post "Let's sanitise the game"
Award shows should not be gatekeepers of morality, and rescinding the nomination for the reasons given is a very weak move IMO
let artists be artists
 
Joey Akan Retweeted ·  
Nobody give a fuck about artist development anymore and that shit fucked up, s/o to a&r’s that still believe in it.

You know portable is “razz”, na im dey easy to fes use do scapegoat
 
 
Set a reminder for my upcoming Space! twitter.com/i/spaces/1ynJO…
 
I hope the rules also apply when it's against an artist we all love.
 
In reply to @JoeyAkan
Above all. Precedent. The public will hold you to this. It's great to deplatform Portable. The optics are perfect. But when it's a higher artist, someone more leveraged. A top 3 perhaps? Will this hammer make an appearance? Is the right hand of justice going to stand firm?
Replying to @JoeyAkan
Congratulations to everyone. Let's sanitise the game. Afrobeats to the world. Welcome to a new dispensation.

Look across your nominations list. Are those people up there all saints and angels? Sugar, spice and everything nice? A real salt of the earth collective? Swing it across board. Enforce and encode this as a rule, and not some arbitrary decision to score points with partners.

Your Headies Award criteria has never stated anywhere near the requirements, that good character off the mic, is also a prerequisite for the honours. And if we're taking a moral stand now, and not separating the art from the artist, then let us all swing the hammer fairly.

Interesting line drawn by the Headies, withdrawing nominations for the enfant terrible, Portable.

Kudos. It's a statement move, designed to speak to everyone that we're cleaning house.

On the surface, it appears to be the popular move.

But it sets up a precedent.

My favorite Afrobeats Intelligence episode has to be the @Zlatan_Ibile one.

That interview(conversation) characterized him in a different light than the one we were used to, and @JoeyAkan just let him talk and only chimed in when it was necessary. Love it!
