Few days ago, I was in a discussion with a friend reviewing music and artistes who have had it big this year.
Of course, the big names from last year were missing. Tiwa Savage was missing, Davido too and we just included Wizkid just because of his involvements in collaborations that have impacted the scene this year.
There were some surprise inclusions. My friend mentioned “Naira Marley” and for a moment I couldn’t disagree.
If there has been any name we’ve gotten angry with, praised, bashed and also hyped, it has to be Naira Marley.
He’s been part of every conversation so far this year. From the EFCC drama to releasing to the singles we’ve bopped to and then his Soapy drama.
“Am I a yahoo boy” sounds morally wrong at first but why do you nod your head to it when a friend plays it?
Burna Boy? His media promo run are all in the US.
But it’s different for Naira Marley. He’s the only artiste we’ve associated with the most so far this year.
All his songs are on our phones, are being played on the streets, so what else do we want?
But guys, I know you all have different opinions on this, so what do you think?
Do You Think Naira Marley Deserves The Artiste Of The Year Over Burna Boy And WizKid?
