Hahaha It’s really going to be unfair for Laycon to win the Headies Next award before Omah Lay.
Very very unfair tbh.

Someone before your very eyes used the name of about 12 HM to freestyle in one sit and did not eat his tongue. I had no paper or pen to write letters, all I had was intuition, talent and memory, ready for you. One is never ready for Laycon … pic.twitter.com/krKYAiXwXJ
