Okay, this is a quick blog to say that PSQUARE is upset cos they did not win a single award at the just concluded Hip Hop World Awards.
Infact, they have described the awards show as YORUBA HIP HOP WORLD AWARDS and have gone on to accuse Ayo Animashaun of tribalism and partiality.
Jude said Ayo Animashun dissapointed them by making sure that only people who won were of South West origin (Yoruba) except for Ruggedman,Timaya and 2face Idibia.He alleged that 'Stylee' the song that won the best music video is trash compared to the 'Do Me' video he did for Psquare.DJ TEE won the award because he shot it.He noted that DJ Tee is the technical director for the award and his wife is also a top official of HipTv, owned by the award organisers.In his words "That award should have been called Yoruba Hip Hop award"
He also alledged that Rugged Man's name was smuggled into the list at the last minute because the name was not on the original long list earlier published in newspapers or magazines.

I was at the awards and some of those awards might have been given out for political reasons so i can understand if some people complain
unfortunately, i doubt if PSSUARE shd be the ones complaining.
Im sorry, but did they really expect to win ALBUM OF THE YEAR?
and ARTISTE OF THE YEAR? i mean, i wdnt have minded terribly if they won, but DBANJ and TU FACE have also been outstanding artistes
'DO ME' might be an excellently well remixed version of 'Busy Body', but it has not surpassed records held by YAHOOZEE
i can understand their argument for their video winning VIDEO OF THE YEAR but, TY BELLO who did fantastic work on GREENLAND isnt calling a press conference yet is she?
And, did PSQUARE really, REALLY expect to beat TU FACE for the POP album of the year?Do they know what Tu Face album sounds like?
We might have spoilt PSQUARE a bit. we love them and think they are fantastic performers but let them not then misconstrue that love for support above others
there were great artistes and songs nominated for those awards and anyone of them would have deserved the gongs; if psquare had won some categories, i am sure that others would have cried foul as well
i can understand their being upset, but at the same time, they need to be careful what they say and how they convey it
sometimes, winning is more about grace in defeat than the actually win itself
