One of Nigeria’s most prolific music video directors, Clarence Peters, has lashed out at Headies Awards for snubbing several hardworking directors in their 2016 nominations list.
Clarence, the son of Sir Shina Peters and Clarion Chuwurah, is heartbroken that the efforts put into creating outstanding videos by these directors, are not recognized.By the way, Clarence was nominated for the Headies.
According to him: “In a year when these men gave us some of the most amazing visual interpretations,mainly: Dare’s “Pray for me” by @mexemania & Kiss Daniels’”Jombo” by @ajefilmswork works,respectfully, it breaks my heart that the headies don’t deem it feet to recognize their out standing work. To my brothers, from Dir Q,to @adasacookey to Frizzle&Bizzle, from Gambit to LA,from Matt Max to Avalon to TOSIN IGHO,SESAN to MOE to MEJI etc. We know what we put in,awards don’t define us,WE DEFINE POPULAR CULTURE not just in Nigeria,but across the continent, so I salute u all.“
