In a recent tweet, CDQ called out the Headies for snubbing Naira Marley. According to him, Marley who was nominated in the Best Street-Hop Artist for his song, Mafo, and not Mayorkun who won for his song, Geng, should have gotten the award.
In his words:

"You no Dey tell yourself the truth Na why your career short like your name."
"I'm have never been your fan and I won't, when will you just mind your business... Naira MARLEY no complain... Na you carry matter for head. Let Naira Marley talk, instead of you to focus on your career that has been stolen."
"You Don't expect Naira marley to win after saying his legwork is far better than Headies....same way Olamide and Tekno bullshits the Headies some years ago and since then has never been nominated or won...but GENG winning the best street hop is really laughable shaa."
"Naira Marly only represent Lagos street. Those in Aba street and Kano street don't understand his songs. Thank you."
"This guy fall my hand big time. What EDUCATIVE impact does Naira marley song had on the younger generations rather his songs taught them to be rude and stubborn. Cdq why now?"
