I believe the expectation generally was for OdumoduBlvck to get a Next Rated nomination, not a Rookie of the year nomination.

Odumodu Black is easily rookie of the year in my books. He has had a good year. And it would be disappointing if he doesn’t win that award in the next Headies. Bayanni doesn’t stand a chance. Apart from Mavins tax, that guy is yet to really impress me.

This might just be the tightest Headies Rookie of the Year nominees list ever. Everybody has a case. You might even argue that some of them deserve to be on the Next Rated list.
