Championing the New Wave of Nigerian Music

Each of these artists has, in their own unique way, contributed to the rich tapestry of the Nigerian music scene:

  • Burna Boy, also known as the “African Giant”, is already a well-established artist with a distinctive fusion of Afrobeat, dancehall, and reggae styles. His album, “Twice as Tall”, received global acclaim, further cementing his place in the international music scene.
  • Asake is a budding artist whose single, “Mr Money”, is fast becoming a favorite on various Nigerian music platforms, including MandyNews.
  • Rema has been a game changer in the music industry, with his blend of Afrobeats, trap, and pop. His rise to fame has been nothing short of meteoric, earning him a nomination for Best New International Act at the 2020 BET Awards.
  • Mayorkun, a signee under Davido’s record label, has made significant strides since his debut. His hit single, “Geng”, topped several Nigerian music charts and affirmed his place in the industry.
  • Finally, Fireboy, signed under the YBNL record label, is renowned for his storytelling prowess in songs. His debut album, “Laughter, Tears & Goosebumps”, was a critical and commercial success.

While their styles and stories may differ, these artists share a common thread – the ability to represent Nigerian music globally, just as Davido and Wizkid have done.
