For the 2015 Headies, it is time to look at the award for an individual responsible for producing the most acclaimed song or album in the year under review. The contenders and the songs that put them in this category are:
- Don Jazzy – Godwin (Korede Bello)
- Mastakraft – Wiser (Flavour)
- Young John – Bobo (Olamide)
- Shizzi – Fans Mi (Davido)
- Legendury Beatz – Ojuelegba (Wizkid)
- Cobhams – There’s A Fire (Bez)
No doubt all 5 songs were hits and the producers have all carved a niche for themselves in the production business, the winner will, go home with this award, not necessarily because he is better than the others, but because of the success of the single.
That being the criteria, SMD producer and label owner Don Jazzy will go head to head with YBNL‘s favorite Young John – the wicked producer as “Godwin” and “Bobo” are the 2 songs that stood out from that list.
Who will win?
Well we expect Don Jazzy to use his Mavin factor and influence to pip Young John to the award. Meanwhile, if Young John wins, he has Olamide to thank for making the most of that beat, while Don Jazzy on the other hand, doesn’t owe Korede much as he performed in the song and also did the promotion alone.
