The organizers took the decision because Chuddy K had previously released an album titled “I Am Me” in 2010 and the major requirement for nominees is that s/he must be unreleased artistes as at nomination period.
Judges of the prestigious annual music awards have now taken Chuddy K off the Next Rated category and have now replaced him with talented rapper, Flowssick.
