There is no doubt that Nigeria as a country is blessed with musical artists that have good vocals and over the years, a whole lots of them have entertained us and the truth is that they made our childhood/youthful days enjoyable. I remember the dance steps back in the days, before the likes of "Azonto", "Yahooze", "Kukere", "Shoki", "Shaku-Shaku", "Leg-work" came on board.
It was indeed a fun-filled experience when these artists entertained and to be frank and sincere, it will be hard for us to forget them.
In this article, the writer "Osasbio" made a compilation of fifteen (15) Nigerian musical artists that entertained us over the years with their good lyrics, vocals and style of music.

15. Innocent Idibia (Tubaba)
Though Tu Baba is still very much into music, I won't fail to do a throwback to some of his songs. Indeed he is a living musical legend and has bagged several awards.
