The statement reads: “The Headies secretariat officially write to correct the following nominations, which were given in error and are corrected as follows ‘Virtuous Woman’ by Flavour was produced by Cobhams not Mastakraft and Selebobo produced ‘Rara’, not Tekno.
‘”Tonight’ by Nonso Amadi was removed from ‘Best RnB Single’ and ‘Best Vocal Performance (Male)’ categories because it was released before the period under review.
“Mastakraft‘s nomination for Best Producer is ‘Yawa” and ”Augment”, while Cobhams is nominated for ”Butterflies” and ”Virtuous Woman”.
