Lagos - Singer Tekno who was nominated for the ‘Next Rated’ has been removed from the list, reports Pulse.ng
According to top sources, Tekno lost out on his spot due to his refusal to honour the category and support the campaign.
Nominees are expected to attend promo activities for the event, and also take part in promotion for the category sponsor, Hyundai.
Tekno failed to submit himself for engagements, promo campaign photos and more.
Tekno had earlier rubbished the Headies Awards when he was announced in the category.

He took to Instagram to say "‘next rated after how many years! Let’s be honest pls".
His refusal to rate the award show and acknowledge the category is responsible for his lackadaisical attitude towards the show.
The category will now be tightly contested by Ycee, Aramide, Humblesmith and Mr Eazi, as the ‘Pana’ hit star misses out on the chance.
