Salieu, who has also received nods in the Breakthrough and Mixtape of the Year (‘Send Them To Coventry’) categories, will compete with AJ’s ‘Little More Love’ and Headie’s ‘Princess Cuts’ with Young T & Bugsey for the Video prize.

Meanwhile, AJ’s ‘Flu Game’ and Headie’s ‘EDNA’ could take home the prestigious Album of the Year prize.
