They say change is the only thing that is constant and therefore, humans are prone to changes due to situations. The music industry in Nigeria has several celebrities that we all admire and love.

These musicians just like everyone else, came from a background that were either from wealth or from extreme poverty. Some of these musicians started with nothing and people wouldn't look their way then but now all seems to be a different story.

Take a look as some of your favorite celebrities of how they looked when they had nothing or younger versus how they are now.

1.Kizz Daniel.

We can all agree that Kizz Daniel has done so well in the music industry over the past years, as he's become one of the finest musicians in the country. The "Ada" crooner had a humble begining just the majority of the artists in Nigeria, as was evident in his throw back photos that made him look almost unrecognizable.

Born Oluwatobiloba Daniel, Kizz Daniel came into the limelight in 2014 with his "woju" hit that was such a successful track that year. He hasn't stopped giving his best since then.

2. Davido.

Many people would agree that this guy's background was an easy ride yet his music career wasn't. Davido is without doubt one of the finest entertainers in Africa and in the world, all thanks to his music success.

Though born into a wealthy family, David Adeleke wasn't the most handsome individual in in his youth, and now you can see the effect of money in his life with the transformation.

3. Zlatan Ibile.

Only God would know what this guy would look like or even be if not for the success he's enjoyed for the past few years. Zlatan is now one of the biggest name in the music industry, known for his crazy style of music and his catchy lyrics, this guy didn't have the smoothest live while growing up as evident in his throw back pictures.

Born Omoniyi Temidayo, the Zanku master won the 2014 edition of the Airtel talent show at just 19 years of age, which earned him a car as a prize.

4. Joeboy.

Joeboy is an amazing act really. The 23-year old has done quite well for himself in space of 2 years. The "celebration" singer is blessed both with musical abilities and looks as he's the crush for many ladies right now. Just like many people on this list, Joeboy wasn't the best looking guy in his struggling days.

Rema

Divine Ikubor, popularly known as Rema, is one of the youngest music sensation in Africa at just 20years old. The "Ginger me" crooner and Mavin act hadms achieved quite a lot in this short time of his music journey and has a Headies award for his work. Rema stunned the music scene in Nigeria when it was discovered that his hit song "Iron man" made the summer playlist of Former President of the United States Barrack Obama.


Which transformation surprised you the most?
