Why Olamide, Naira Marley & Rexxie are Missing In The Headies 2019 List of Nominees

The Headies 2019 is here but the likes of Olamide, Naira Marley and Rexxie,who are notable Nigerian artistes were ruled out of the Headies nomination list.

Possibly, that blast from the past has come to hunt the YBNL Boss today and that is why despite his hit songs this year, he was not nominated.

Naira Marley

Naira Marley is one of the most daring street artiste of Nigeria today, with hit singles like, Soapy, Puta. The am I a Yahoo boy crooner came into the game in an uncommon way. Since his arrest by EFCC, the streets of Lagos and Nigeria at large, now blast speakers all day with Naira Marley songs.
