Nigerian rapper, Ycee has drawn wandering attention of certain music folks to the fact that the biggest Nigerian artiste at the moment is not Wizkid or Davido or even Burna Boy and others. He gave the crown to Naira Marley.
Ycee made this declaration while pointing to yet another fact that this glaring truth is something many industry folks will want to acknowledge, as it is not a likable truth. I mean, who would want to put it out there that the infamous Naira Marley is more of a raving act than the likes of Wizkid, Davido, and Burna Boy who are considered top three.
In Ycee’s opinion, Burna Boy’s globally received “African Giant” album and Davido’s highly celebrated “A Good Time” album haven’t done enough to stay ahead of Naira Marley in regards to trending on the airspace and enjoying a cult following. Marley has trended more than any other artiste this year; though for the wrong reasons.
From Ycee’s point of view, that counts for everything in terms of keeping him at the forefront of the industry. His words; “hope say una know say Naira Marley na the biggest Naija artiste? But based on ‘industry,’ una go wan deny”.
