Nigerian rapper, Vector did not appear among the nominees for the 2020 Headies Awards.
In a lengthy Twitter thread, Vector has explained why he stopped entering for the Headies awards.
The rapper said he stopped getting involved in such award competitions because he doesn’t want to compete with other rappers seeing that he can “easily beat them on a one on one.”
He added that he’s grown now and awards don’t mean anything to him anymore. Also, the rapper stated that he doesn’t care about money or clout and only wants to make music.

“Let new people win awards,” he added.
“As for the Headies. I stopped entering for it because I don’t want to compete with rappers (I can easily beat them on a one on one but that was Unilag). I’m grown now. Awards actually don’t mean anything to me anymore. Let new people win awards.”
Vector went on to speak about how he does not want to nurture the idea of outdoing fellow rapper, ModeNine. Continue reading what he wrote;
“I intentionally removed myself from the idea that I have to outdo Mode 9. It’s not necessary. Ask him about me in the studio and he will tell you. I don’t care about clout… I just want to make music. Fuck money too. That shit comes and goes anyway.”
In conclusion, he wrote;
“Make Hennessy tell una how much my deal is worth as a rapper? Lol. But that’s not me. I can brag but it only brings more fake people around you anyways. Stay humble and live easy. Accolades are just accolades. Peace to everybody who deserves peace.”
