Nigerian Afro-fusion singer, Daniel Benson, popularly known as BNXN fka Buju, emerged winner of the Next Rated Artiste category at the 2022 Headies award show.
The 15th edition of the award show took place at the Cobbs Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta, United States, in the early hours of Monday, September 5, and was tagged ‘Join the Movement”.
Several talented artists were nominated in the Next Rated category – which is considered one of the most competitive categories in the award show because of the caliber of artists fighting to clinch the award and the accompanying car reward.
The nominees in this year’s edition were Mavin Record’s Ayra Starr, Buju, Ruger, Zinoleesky, Lojay, and Portable. However, Portable was disqualified because of his unruly behavior.
Well, Buju beat the other artists to emerge the winner of the Next Rated award. He also went home with the brand new 2022 Bentley Bentayga.
He dedicated the award to his late mother and girlfriend, Peggy.

Buju’s win has sparked hilarious reactions online as he was recently engaged in an online banter with his co-nominee, Ruger, over who has the biggest hit songs. ICYMI
It all started when Buju, who released his latest studio album titled “Bad Since’ 97” in the early hours of today, took to Twitter to announce that his album is topping the charts.
He posted a screenshot of the chart and wrote, “What if I what if I what if I COOOKKKK #BadSince97”.
Ruger figured out that Buju was throwing a shade at him because the line “What if I, What if I, What if I” is from his recently released single “Girlfriend”, and fired back at him.
The Jonzing star pointed out that Buju doesn’t have a solo hit song as most of his hit songs are features, and fat-shamed him.
“Get a solo hit then talk to me fatty bum bum”, Ruger tweeted.
Responding, Buju fired back at Ruger while still gushing over his Number One spot on the chart.
“Project #1 and I didn’t have to whine my waist ”, he responded.

Nigerians fume as young boy who was promised heaven and earth during presidential election is neglected
In what appears to be a disheartening turn of events, Nigerians are expressing their disappointment as the young election hero, whose viral video of chasing Peter Obi’s convoy captivated the nation, has allegedly been left empty-handed despite grand promises made during the presidential election campaign.
The incident has reignited debates over the credibility of campaign pledges and the treatment of citizens who actively participate in political processes.
During the presidential elections campaign, the young boy was promised a myriad of rewards ranging from scholarships abroad to substantial financial compensation.
These assurances were intended to recognize and appreciate his bold act of running after the convoy of Peter Obi, the former vice-presidential candidate, in a fervent display of support.
However, five months have elapsed since the general elections took place, and the promised rewards have failed to materialize, leaving the young election hero disillusioned and causing Nigerians to voice their grievances.
Social media platforms have been inundated with expressions of frustration, highlighting the broken trust between politicians and the electorate.
