The Headies Next Rated has become an issue of contention on social media, most especially Twitter as people argue over who is more deserving of the awards amongst Laycon or Omah Lay.
Icons, the fans of former Bbnaija housemate Laycon, believe that Laycon is more deserving.
Others believe that Omah Lay, is not just good with songs, lyrics and tunes, but he has also put in good effort and is more deserving. For lots of people, Omah Lay is more deserving of the award than Laycon, considering his hard work, his back to back hits, his fast achievements and lots more.
BBNaija 2020 winner, Laycon, is obviously well loved, preferred amongst other housemates, his fan base is strong too, and this has obviously helped his music career. His fans willingly accepted his songs.
This love is obviously why his fans believe that he his worthy of the Next Rated at the 2020 Headies Award.

However, some people think it is rude to compare Laycon to Omah Lay, according to them Omah Lay is much more deserving. To them Omah Lay has put in the best amount of work into his songs and his back to back hits deserve an accolade.
Some people think that the love, fan base and fame that Laycon has comes from being a Bbnaija fan, while that of Omah Lay comes from his efforts.
