7 Nigerian Musicians to Watch Out For This Year



Nobody needs to tell you that the year 2013 was a good year for the Nigerian music industry. We had better videos, improved song writing, interesting storylines and bright looking fashionable costumes. Let’s not forget the great albums, the deals, the concerts and appearances by the international acts. Nobody wanted to be left behind and so, the competition was stiff and still runs into the New Year. Since we like to observe trends, check out our list of top 10 musicians to watch out for this year. Most of them made their first appearance in the industry in 2013 and have since been pushing in to ensure that their efforts are duly recognized in 2014. We hope to see more good music, more collaborations, more videos and for most of them, an album (it’s due please).  In no particular order, they are
  1. Phyno – The self acclaimed ‘Man of the year’ has done a great deal of work for himself and his music seeing as his brand is generally accepted by the Igbo people who want more and even the non-Igbo people who want to know about the language and the meaning. After winning 2 awards at the Headies last year, we expect more from Phyno this year – more songs and videos and maybe a mixtape or an album. With hit singles like ‘Ghostmode’ with fellow Yoruba rapper, Olamide and ‘Man of the Year’, let’s hope Phyno takes advantage of the fanbase he has now.phyno
  2. Skales – Skales is one of the few artistes who have been underrated for a really long time. The young EME star is a bundle of talent as his music and videos of recent have been very impressive to say but the least. His last work ‘Take care of me’ has enjoyed massive airplay everywhere and this attributes to the great effort in his music. Hopefully, he might just clinch that grammy he has been heading for all this while. He’s also one of the few on the list that we expect an album from this year.skale
  3. Seyi Shay – Oluwaseyi Shay is another act we hope to see more of in the year 2014. She hit our screen with ‘Loving Your Way’ which the fans loved and yearned for more and after which came up with ‘Irawo’ where she displayed her dancing skills. Since then, Seyi has been growing musically as she has been nominated for a lot of award events and even signed a deal as a brand ambassador for a telecommunication company sometime last year. We want to see more of Seyi in 2014, more of creativity as seen in her latest video to ‘Ragga Ragga’. Go Seyi! It’s girl power. Seyi-Shay2
  4. Praise – Praise Adejo has comfortably been able to break the norm that not only winners of the Project Fame West Africa get to be this successful as he boasts of being the most succestful runner up. Praise, with his beautiful voice has done covers to popular songs, and performs soundtracks for movies, series etc. Praise also doubles as an MTN ambassador and owes us an album this year if I’m not mistaken.

  5. Temidollface – With just one music video, this young lady has been able to prove to the viewing audience that there’s more to Temi that you do not know. ‘Pata Pata’ by Temi saw a brand new style, a brand new concept and we hope to see more of that beauty in 2014. Maybe not an album, but more songs and more videos and if she feels like surprising us, an EP maybe?temi
  6. Sean Tizzle – After winning Next Rated category at the Headies 2013 and driving a new car home, Sean Tizzle should be ready to tizzle us this year with whatever he has on his calendar set. With the beautiful old school video he dropped to ‘Komole’ last year, we are only expecting more from him this year and to live up to the fanbase he has accumulated within short period of entry into the industry.tizzel
  7. Niyola – Niyola of EME is another person we hope to see more of this year. She has set a very beautiful standard for herself with her video to ‘Toh Bad’ and in 2014, we are hoping to see the best – the very best and nothing but the best. Much more videos, much more songs etc..
Niyola Others include –
  • Emma Nyra
  • Boj of DRB
  • Lola Rae
