How Davido, Wizkid, Rema, Burna Boy Are Changing The Nigerian Music Industry.

Due to the way they are getting recognized internationally, Wizkid and the others are attracting more people to Nigerian music.

This is evident in the performance of their last albums.

Wizkids last album, Made in Lagos is currently one of the most-streamed music albums in Nigeria currently and has a lot of international features on it.

Just like Wizkid said in one of his music, "My music travels with no Visa", Wizkid has been able to bag a lot of features internationally. In 2013, when getting internationally recognized was a very big achievement in the Nigerian music industry, Wizkid was already working with artists like Tyga, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, etc. His album had international features like Akon, Ty Dolla Sign, Chris Brown, Drake, Major Lazer and Trey Songz.

Burna Boy's last album, Twice As Tall also broke a lot of records in the Nigerian music scene. He really put a lot of work into the album and it is attracting more listeners to the music we listen to in Nigeria. In Nigeria, Burna Boy released the album "African Giant". This album featured a lot of international acts such as Future, Jorja Smith, Angelique Kidjo, etc. The album debuted in the Billboard 200 and was very successful.

Davido is constantly evolving music in Nigeria. Davido was born into a wealthy family and he didn't allow that to influence good decisions to grow big in a bad way. During a previous concert on stage, Davido is slowly lowered from the sky to the stage. He is being gently manoeuvred into the consciousness of the wider listening public, too. Davido has been featured on Wild n'Out.

The way Nigerian music is reaching out to foreigners is really a good thing because it will, in some way help the economy grow when it has more people in it.
