Following the release of the 13th Headies Award Nomination list which has shown that  a lot of New acts have made nominations in various categories, questions have risen up on why talented Nigerian Singer ,Songwriter and producer 1DA BANTON did not get  Nominated in any of the various categories.

1Da Banton who hails from the South South region of Nigeria has  created a mark for himself in the Nigerian Music Scene and his fans are curious to know why his name is absent on the 13th Headies Award Nomiantion list following the fact that The Squareball signee has made some HIGHLIGHTS for himself in the entertainment industry from 2015 when  he made his debut single LOVE HER DAILY  which was remixed with Solid Star and Young Skales till date.

In 2016 the singer also dropped his Single JOY which topped so many charts and was quite blown in the South after which he did a remix with HarrySongs.

In 2017 he also dropped his Banton Ep which had his hit single WAY UP, which was used as the Theme song for Big Brother Naija 2018.

 In the same year 2018 the singer dropped two hot singles JOWO and AFRICAN WOMAN. With JOWO having over 300k Spotify plays and AFRICAN WOMAN Over 600k plays on Spotify alone & Over 80 thousand monthly listeners on Spotify the singer seems to be getting a lot of listeners attention as he also made Top Ten Afrobeats songs on beatfm London with AFRICAN WOMAN in 2018

Not disputing the fact that he has also performed on major entertainment  stages in Nigeria like  the celebration,Lagos Fiesta,DJ tunez blackout etc.

He has also Produced for Top Music artistes like; Reekado Banks, Seyi Shay,Tekno, Wande Coal, Efe Money, Boom Box,  etc

He also Recently had a collaboration with International act  Kranium on a new song WHINE FI MI which featured on Mr Eazi’s Empawa program.

It is believed that 1DA Banton has lived beyond Media Hype and because of this questions as to why he was not nominated for the 13th headies Award has been raised.

Turning fans to the suspicion of history repeating itself in the life of 1DA Banton as yet again another fast rising act from the South might be getting ignored & underrated just like the case of BURNA BOY few years ago.
