BBNaija Lockdown Winner and rapper, Laycon, and singer, Omah Lay have drawn a battle line for the Next Rated Artist award category on Twitter.

Sequel to this, fans of BBNaija season 5 winner and rapper, Laycon, and fast rising singer, Omah Lay have drawn a battle line for the Next Rated Artist award category on Twitter.
While icons are pushing the agenda that Laycon deserves to brng home the Net Rated category award as his EP “Who Is Laycon” has garnered over a million streams across music platforms, fans of Omah Lay insist that it will be a “disrespect” to compare him with the BBNaija star.
Fans and lovers of Omah Lay are also of the opinion that he has more hit songs and features in the year under review than Laycon.
Following the debate on Twitter, some entertainment and music lovers have continued to argue that Headies is not a reality TV show and that comparing Laycon to Omah Lay is a disrespect in itself.
Although no nomination list has been published yet by the award organization, it appears these two artistes (Omah Lay and Laycon) are the center of attention for now.
Check out reactions from fans of both artistes below;
Lol. It’s really going to be unfair for Laycon to win Headies Next rated award ahead of Omah Lay.
Very very unfair tbh.

“Without BBN people won’t know Laycon” Same way people won’t know Mayorkun without OBO, people won’t know Reema without Don baba, Fireboy without Olamide… should I continue? Na through somewhere/someone person dey blow. Why is Laycon’s own the problem? Laycon is here to stay 🗣
