After a month of voting, predictions and heated online exchanges as to those who would eventually be selected for the highly competitive categories of the TooXclusive 2014 Awards, Nigeria’s foremost online music blog, tooxclusive.com on Thursday, 15 January, announced the winners of the awards to an excited online audience.
Davido, who has turned the biggest act of 2014 with numerous big honours home and abroad, led with nine nominations, including collaborative features.
The HKN lead act continued his winning streak by coming out tops, pulling four wins from the five categories including the coveted Artiste of the Year award.
YBNL freshman Lil Kesh carted away the Best New Artiste award which he won by a 50 per cent vote margin ahead of his other contenders along with three other awards.
Still keeping it within the YBNL team, Olamide, not only won the award for Album of the Year, he also beat the likes of Jesse Jagz and Phyno to pick the Lyrical Titan award.
Other winners include Sarkodie, Tiwa Savage and The Mavins All Stars for their smash hit Dorobucci.
Also on the award list are Don Jazzy, 2face Idibia, Ice Prince, Vector, DJ Xclusive and Clarence Peters. These category winners were adjudged by means of a non-biased polling system culled from a sum total of 140,000+ voters.
Organisers said the award plaques will be handed out to the respective winners subsequently.
