Nigerian Dancehall Sensation Patoranking, Davido Win Big At The Headies 2014

Dance hall sensation, Patoranking, was in the spotlight early Monday morning, during the Headies Awards ceremony which began Saturday night, at Eko Hotel And Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.

The reggae star, who clinched three diadems at the show, also became the proud owner of a brand new Hyundai, the only car prize in the music competition.

The awards include his collaborative effort on Emergency, the hit single he did alongside WizzyPro, Skales and Runtown and bagged the Best Collabo award; his hit track, Girlie’o, which gave him the Best Reggae /Dancehall category and the biggest award of the night – the Next Rated award category, which earned him the car prize.

Patoranking’s acceptance speech aroused emotions. The artiste went down memory lane, hinting about his humble beginnings.

“If I tell you I was once a rat killer seller, would you believe? If I tell you I was once a brick layer would you believe? But God brought me out of the gutter. My story should inspire you. Don’t let anyone tell you that you cannot make it in life or you can’t achieve anything, I am a living proof of how God can turn around your story in seconds,” he said. The speech earned him loud applause and standing ovation by the crowd.

Meanwhile, Davido and Olamide also won two awards each, being Song of The Year and Arististe of The Year, and Album of The Year and the Best Rap Album respectively. Don Jazzy won the Best Producer of The Year, while the Mavin Crew won Best Pop Single with their smash hit single Dorobucci.

Others are, Best Recording of The Year- Ordinary People by Cobhams Asuquo; Best Music Video – Clarence Peters for Flavour’s Ada Ada; Best R’n’B/Pop Album – Sean Tizzle for The Journey; Best R’n’B Single – 2face Idibia for Let Somebody Love You; Best Rap Single – Phyno for Parcel; Best Vocal Performance (Male) – Timi Dakolo for Iyawo Mi; Best Vocal Performance (Female) – Niyola for Love To Love You ft Banky W; Hip-hop World Revelation – Kcee for Take Over; Best Street-Hop Artiste – Oritse Femi for Double Wahala; Best Alternative Song – BOJ for Bolaji and Best African Artiste – Sarkodie (Ghana).

P-Square, who did not win in their chosen category, were honoured with a recognition award for their impact in the music industry.
