Revealed: Why Femi Kuti was absent at the 2012 Headies
Controversies trailing the recently concluded Hip Hop World Awards otherwise known as 'The Headies' might not abate soon as fresh facts on why Femi Kuti was absent at the award ceremony have emerged.
According to a report on Nigerian Entertainment Today, Femi's absence is not unconnected to an unpaid fee for logistics.
The Net claims that a source close to the son of the late Afro-Beat legend chose to stay behind at the new African Shrine because of a 'slight misunderstanding' and the inability of Femi's management and the organizers of the awards to reconcile 'last minute differences'.
‘They were meant to pay Shoki shoki (Femi) some balance for logistics but as at Saturday evening we hadn’t received the money, so he stayed back at the Shrine for Felabration‘, a source told the entertainment website.
Femi was billed to perform and also get inducted into the Headies Hall of Fame'. However, fans of the 'bang bang bang' crooner were surprised when Femi did not show up.
