10 Nigerian Songs I Can’t Stop Listening To
There are so many songs that are being released everyday. While some might get a higher level of attention from the general public or a wider audience because they are sung by superstars, others get a much lower level of attention due to the fact that the artists are relatively new to the music game.
At NotjustOk.com, we try our best to put out the best content to music lovers all over, and most times, the A-List music artists shine brighter and get more attention than the upcoming ones. While the unequivocal truth remains that, the A-Listers have earned their status by being hardworking and consistent over the years, what about the talented newbies in the game who are trying to get similar attention? They too should be given the much needed attention if you ask me. Guess what, this is exactly what this list is all about – to give the highly talented upcoming artistes the much needed attention they deserve, and perhaps do it in such a way that they eventually attain the A-List status too.
My name is E G O. I am an Editor for NotjustOk.com, and here is my List of 10 Nigerian Songs I Can’t Stop Listening To.
Enjoy and please don’t forget to leave your comments in the comment section.
Multi-talented Contemporary Gospel/folk artiste and Ex-Project Fame contestant – Johnny Drille, has being consistent with his singles over a couple of months now. His sound is out of this world (galactic), his pristine lyrics, unsurpassed vocal ability, highly cohesive and intoxicating beats, mixing and mastering are undeniably world-class in professionalism. You need to here him to understand what I mean!
#2 Sojay – Baby
Sojay who is signed to Reminisce’s LRR label imprint, is one talent this industry will come to reckon with in a short while. His voice serenades you anytime you listen to him sing, and you can see him adding flavor to whatever song he is being featured on. Sojay is definitely a big force to watch out for.
The first lady of Naija Ninjas – Yung Greyc, really knows how to put a dancehall song together. Closely chasing Cynthia Morgan in the dancehall genre, Yung Greyc is equally as energetic, and a very strong act to really watch out for.
A relatively new act in the game, but Giniz is one talented young lady. Her sound is westernized by default and can boast of clenching international award if she remains stead-fast in her music career. The sky is definitely the starting point for Giniz, it’s not her limit at all.
Frequent Nojustok visitors will remember Cleo-Thelma from being the 2nd ever Mynotjustok Artiste of the week. From then on till now, she has being effortlessly delivering highly impressive singles. Cleao Thelma is a rising star to also watch out for, and I have a feeling her best is yet to come.
Project Fame Season 6 winner – Olawale, is a highly talented individual. Everyone that saw his energetic performances during the competition will attest to the fact that he is truly gifted. Olawale has alot deposited inside of him, and with consistency in churning out songs, he will definitely make a statement in the music industry in the not-to-distant future.
Splash – the talented and indigenous/versatile rapper, is another artiste with so much potential. She delivers Igbo rap with the illest swag ever, after Phyno, that is. Splash is dope.
I introduce to you, – Ola Dips (a.k.a Omo Iya Aje), as he is popularly known. Ola dips is likely the next big thing bubbling underground after the late Dagrin. His yoruba rap is somewhat different, interestingly refreshing, and absolutely unique from what you typically here out there nowadays. Keep an eye out for this dude!
Humblesmith has perfected the act of highlife music with the infusion of the new-school Afro beat genre. He has being pretty consistent at it and the world deserves to hear what he has to offer. He is a diamond in the dirt at the moment, but don’t ever underestimate his true potential.
Vino Bellz is relatively new in the industry at the moment but when I heard this song, apart from the outstanding beat cooked up super-producer Masterkraft, I sensed passion in her vocals. I am pretty sure she will have no problem churning out dance tunes like this that will surely make statements in the future.
