The 10 Most Gifted Rappers In Nigeria 2014 | FULL LIST

Big congratulations to every emcee who was mentioned on "The List" and to all the worthy mentions listed below.

Rap in Nigeria has come a long way from the days where no one even gave it a chance and thought it would never become a relevant genre in the Nigerian Music Industry.

Today, we are happy that Rap/hiphop is now becoming a mainstream genre accepted among the masses in Nigeria. There is now evidence that a good rapper who raps in English or his/her local dialect (or both) can be successful in the Nigerian Music industry, which was not the case years ago.

With rap being a very competitive genre, we are sure many rappers will emerge and those who were sleeping will come back alive to deliver content that will cause the the Nigerian music lovers to root for them and swear that a certain rapper is the best artist or rapper in Nigeria.

We look forward to more rappers releasing more music, EPs, Mixtapes and albums between now and September 2015 so that this LIST will be more competitive and more people will get to know THE MOST GIFTED rappers within a certain period.

Congrats again to all winners and worthy mentions; you all deserve the recognition.

 The The 10 Most Gifted Rappers In Nigeria 2014 | FULL LIST

1. Phyno

2. Olamide

3. Reminisce

4. Mojeed

5. Modenine

6. Jesse Jagz

7. Ice Prince

8. iLLBLiSS

9. Falz

10. Yung6ix

 

Worthy Mentions

1. Eva Alordiah

The most active female rapper in the game. She always puts a smile on your face when you hear her spit and she refuses to be put in a box. She should be a bigger artist.

2. Boogey

His flow is admirable and if you are not a sharp listener, he can easily displace your ears on your path to follow him. Once you catch up, you will then be able to appreciate his lyrics. Boogey makes use of a lot of metaphors and punchlines.

3. Erigga

South-South rapper, straight shooter, witty and unapologetic lyricist. He also throws in some Warri humor that will crack you up.

4. Ozone

New blood with a lot of energy. Good rapper and when you listen to him, you can see him going the commercial route and being successful. Go download his "Superiority Complex" mixtape.

5. CDQ

A Yoruba-speaking rapper who delivers his lyrics like he has been rapping for a decade and it also helps that his producer is Masterkraft.

this list should be tagged "the hottest rappers in Nigeria". here is why; phyno is hotter than jesse jagz but definitely not gifted than him, regardless of the period under review

It's notjustok just as it name of the site you don't expect a positive thing from them. Olamide and phyno these guys trick Nigerian by the use of the language. Their flows are not original. They copy flow from a lot of foreign artists. Notjustok is one the major factors we Nigerian don't listen to good music. They are too biase in everything they do.

Kahli Abdu dropped couple of tracks within the specified time, i wonder why he's not on the list... And ya'll are talking about gifted and A-Q ain't here... This list is a joke. Tho, its credible to an extent, I still dont see any reason why A-Q shouldn't be on the list... And i recollect seeing it here on notjustok that A-Q's "We are dreaming" ft Sojay is the most creative hiphop track of the year... Dunno if its a biased list or it prolly skipped your minds, but i think it will help consulting professionals where you ain't too… Read more »

Jesse jagz remain the best rapper of this time....having phyno above olamide is pure idiosyncrasy...cos olamide has been more relevant and has more features than phyno. A.Q and seriki deserve a place on the list instead of falz and young six.

Not sure why M.I. isn't on this list but whatever notjustok na human being oo. You all should use good earphones/speakers to list to "The Chairman" album and I'm sure you would feel what M.I. made us miss for years.

This is not suppose to be Most Gifted, Most active would have been better plus i cant understand why the absence of Terry The Rapman and Show dem Camp? They aint Gifted? Next time doing a Survey will make more sense.

honestly though, i agree with the list but my only issue is that M.I. isn't on the list and that's a bit confusing...don't know how you'll talk about the best rap/hip hop acts from Nigeria and leave out the most significant of them all..

I would rather this list be referred to as the hottest rappers in Nigeria in 2014 and not the most gifted but then it would be better with some little amends done.But under whatever circumstance,Eva Alordiah deserves a spot.We all know M.I is no doubt one of the best we ever had but given the time in review,he wasnt so consistent,Im sure he will be top 3 next year with the album he recently dropped.This list can never be perfect anyways cause we all have our preferences and even if any of us here who follows notjustok is asked to… Read more »

MI not on the list? Then that's not a list its a sheet of paper. What's the different between you and linda always wanting Hype. You now want people to start talking about your shity list abi? You deyvloss your value everyday you post things like this. Olamide should not be there so is Phyno. For naija you have to mix both languages to be the at the top what is the use of Olamide's rap to a Hausa or an Ibo boy who doesnt understand yoruba? You should based your criterial on how people can relate to their music.… Read more »

I'm loving the comments, you have to love Nigerians. A yoruba commenter asks why Phyno's name is included because he can't understand Phyno. Non-yorubas contest Olamide aswell for the same reason. Entertainment! Then you have people looking for MI abaga when it clearly says "This year we are focusing on rappers who were active between July 2013 and September 2014". In a bit, some artists go enter studio release their own comment as well. If say we dey read instruction, we for dey pass jamb oh. Some wan even help njo change the instructions.

the word "gifted" is a big one! Modenine is Nigeria ever most gifted rapper, like no one can come close to him if we're talking real hip-hop! He's the only 1st generation rapper on the list!...S/O to all rappers in the list!....but Olamide is less a rapper, he's more of a singer now!
