Korede Bello in a recent interview with Punch spoke on the controversy surrounding Reekado Banks win at the 2016 edition of the Headies. He also talked about his hit song Godwin and how he plans to release songs that would be better than it.
On Reekado Banks win:
“The next rated category is one that is highly rated among singers and being nominated alone is a big deal to me because past winners have done very well for themselves after the awards. However, winning does not guarantee your success or showmanship as a musician. Firstly, I am grateful to the organisers of the award for nominating me and I I’m extremely happy. Regarding the controversy, Reekado Banks had a good year in 2015 and he is a hard worker. He deserves everything he gets. Kiss Daniel also did very well last year; he had three hit songs last year and some of the songs are my favourite. Lil Kesh, my brother, also had back to back hits last year. It should be a big deal for anyone who was nominated, but it is only one person that would take home the prize. It is a voting category and I guess the fans chose their favourite.”
On releasing a song that would be as impactful as Godwin
“Godwin is a very powerful song but I want to assure my fans that we have recorded some very fantastic songs. We even had song that were ‘Godwin worthy’ before we recorded Godwin. But you can’t deny the fact that there are some elements in Godwin that cuts across all demography. Everyone can relate to the song and you don’t get those kinds of songs easily. Even if you do a song that is better than it, just because some segments of people cannot relate to it, they might feel it is not like Godwin. Godwin was divinely inspired and it was a God project and I pray God blesses my other projects too.”
