Pay attention to these artists. Some of them recently caught my eyes, others I've been watching for a while and I am very impressed by how they've kept it going. I am rooting for 10 of them
“I’ve watched him closely over the years and I’ve seen how much he’s grown. His writing skill is amazing. I am really impressed with his new EP “Faya Vibes” he displayed strong versatility and range is very important for a true artist.”
Tolani, who has a diploma in Music & Master Performance from Tech Music Schools in London, sais she hopes to captivate young Nigerian music lovers with her unique style of music. ... I was born into music; I love music even as a kid in school, church and any opportunity to sing.
“Tolani’s music is different and she’s solem with it. She’s not an everyday artist, she’s very intentional with her art and I like to unwind with that type of vibe. I also like to see her perform.”
Emeka was born on 29 January 1996, to an Igbo family and grew up, exposed to the Yoruba and Urhobo culture in Nigeria. ... Blaqbonez started exploring his rap skills very early, and at 16, came 1st out of over 3000 rappers in Nigeria, who participated in Terry tha Rapman's Zombie competition.
“It’s really hard not to like Blaqbonez. He’s funny and has been able to sell that along with his music. That makes him stand out from the clutter. It goes beyond being the best rapper in Africa, he’s a whole entertainer and his latest record “Haba” is solid.”
4. Omah Lay
Born Stanley Omah Didia, to a family with deep music roots in Port Harcourt, Nigeria. Omah Lay'sgrandfather was a percussionist for the legendary Highlife singer Celestine Ukwu until his death in 1976. ... Omah Lay has been tipped by Native Mag on their March episode of 'Fresh Meat' as an artiste to look out for in 2020.
“Omah Lay has something really big. When I listen to his music, I feel there’s so much more coming and he’ll figure out many other ways to keep killing it. I am very eager to hear what’s next because I feel like there’s so much more still. He’s a star for sure.”
“I heard Leopard’s song (Shola featuring Mr Eazi) and he caught my ears. I think he’s different and the type of artist I would totally sign because his sound can become something. He sounded really raw and authentic.”
“It is not common to find an artist that can branch into just any sound and do it well. That’s the type of artist that Töme is. She’s very diverse and I am curious to see what particular sound she’ll settle for because she will obviously own it. I love her new album, “Bigger than 4 Walls” and my favourite song is “All to You”.”
Ekweani Chukwuka professionally known as Ckay is a Nigerian singer, songwriter and record producer from Anambra
“I’ve liked Ckay’s music for time now. I started listening since Container don Land (2018). I heard his EP “Ckay the First” and I’ve loved it. That EP is real growth from everything that he’s been doing from time so much that I'm stuck on it. He went all the way up with it. It was my workout soundtrack for the longest time.”
8. Ajebo Hustlers
“These guys are one of my latest discoveries. Someone put me on to their music and it is absolutely special. Their voices ooze confidence. The rapper (Knowledge) is intelligent and fun with it and the melodies from the singer (Piego) are raw and different. My favourite Ajebo Hustlers song right now is “Kpos”.”
“I first noticed Elhi in 2019 when he did a cover to my song RORA. My eyes have been out for him and he did deliver on his new (Eu4ria) EP with Mut4y. My favourite song on the EP is “Feelin U”. I surely want to hear more from him.”
The thing about Victony is that I’ve listened to only one of his songs and I have a strong feeling that he’s got something heavy. The song is titled “Sing My Song”. The melody and finesse of the song is impressive. My fingers are crossed for him.
