9. Mr Eazi
Mr Eazi is probably the smartest and most business-savvy Nigerian musician around right now.
After somewhat falling out of favor with a section of Nigerians mostly in Nigeria due to his pro-Ghana comments and bold claims, Mr Eazi had to work his way back up from being “cancelled”. The question is, was he ever really cancelled? Dude has continued churning out hits home and abroad, racking up mad numbers online (Spotify, YouTube, Apple Music), and is now being projected to become the flagbearer of Afrobeats in the very near future by industry powerhouses like DJ Ebro.
