As the year winds down to a very eventful and activity-filled close, it is only normal for one to assess and evaluate occurrences that have ultimately led to this point. Particularly, we have carefully examined the progress of our industry acts and are therefore presenting ten of them who we adjudged to be the most improved, this 2015 year.
We acknowledge the fact that there are loads of artistes who have experienced a career switch up this year, but as always is the case, there’s only little that ten spots can contain. Regardless, please comment any other names you think are deserving of a mention.
If there’s anyone out there that still doubts Lil Kesh‘s “legitness” in the game , then you just some Hater. This Young hit maker Has Really Made 2015 a Turn Up Year So Far.
YBNL recording act, Lil Kesh is known for his numerous hit songs such as EFEJOKU feat Label Mate Viktoh, Iyanya’s OKAMFOR and His latest Single ft Patoranking – Is it Because i Love You and alot more…
Tekno is one act that TripleMG should take serious pride in. I mean, he’s such an all-round artiste with an order of versatility that should trip you. Not only does he sing, he produces too… and he’s damn good at both!
If anything, 2015 would bask knowing that it was her year that chart-topping songs like Duro and Wash were dropped. Also, he produced Ice Prince Zamani’s Boss and was featured with Bracket on Panya, which he also produced as well as a couple other songs that have an effective commercial appeal. I’ll recommend that TripleMG does a whole lot more especially in honing musical prowess just to ensure that Tekno is the first-grade star he’s destined to be.
Reeky Baby almost makes it look like his mates are in a deep slumber with how hard he grinds. I mean, this guy puts out three hot tracks back-to-back sometime in July that left us still anticipating more. This guy totally kills it everytime he’s put on a verse or hook and it’s why he has continued to pull features with some of the industry’s highbrow artistes. A big pay off this year would be when telecommunications giant,Glo signed him on as an ambassador.
I don’t think anyone has enjoyed the 2015 any better than Falz has. Not only did his Marry Me jam roll over into the new year, he set a new record in his social media trending game with the release of ‘Ello Bae. Several records and features after, the jolly ride took a monumental stop last month when he released his sopH0more disc titled “Stories That Touch“. It would be unfair to not mention materials like Karishika, Celebrity Girlfriend and Simi’s Jamb Question Remix which showed alternative sides to his very creative yet comical person.
5. SEYI SHAY
Turn up for ma gurl, Shay… whoop! Away from her badass album cover, I think she should have titled her debut disc, The Year of Shay. As in, 2015 held so much in store for the sultry music diva. This was the year that she bagged three major endorsements, sealed an international record deal, and even put out her long-awaited debut, “Seyi or Shay“. She was also featured on the performers line-up for Star Music Trekwhere she burned out the stage with electrifying performances.
Her latest single, Right Now has bagged multiple nominations on various award platforms (including ours) and her other efforts still have that frenzy effect on our ears. Long live Shay!
Like play, hollering “woss” out loud has become the new in-thing for feel good buddies on the streets. And it’s all thanks to CDQ, who has become a significant one in the many barons from the West hood. The intriguing thing about CDQ would be how much he’s played his consistency by slaying tracks and nailing features, which he also slays to reckless reverie. Is it Masterkraft’s Indomie Remix? Or perhaps Jahbless’ 69 Missed Calls? How could one forget his personal works like Salaro or Talosobee? All from this year alone oh.
Of which, he recently put out a Wizkid-featured song and we all know what it is when the lungu crooner endorses your sound. Look, CDQ is advancing fast to becoming the next king of the streets. Forgerrith!
2014 was a good year for Runtown as he made his presence known in the music scene with the release of his Gallardo single in 2014 which featured Davido. He followed that with 4 singles and has shown improvement with each new single dropped, which attests that he can hold his own down on the music charts for years to come. His features this year have been great, complimenting other artistes’ songs well and sometimes making them better, now that’s growth.
Runtown released his debut album “Ghetto University” last month, I suggest you go get it. It is easily one of the best albums in the country right now.
Tinny Entertainment’s star act and rave of the moment YCEE is One artist who has really improved in 2015 Following the recent release of his single JAGABAN which he Later Featured YBNL’s head honcho Olamide (Baddo) on the JAGABAN Remix Who made it to become a Bigger Mega Hit on the Streets of Lagos and the Rest Follows as the Video was Shot and also Released . Forth Night Later Ycee Released a New Single Titlted Omo Alhaji Produced By Ekelly after the successful release of Jagaban Remix Visual Featuring YBNL General Olamide.
2015 am Sure was one of the Successful Years For the Singercologist , Following the release of Chairmoo, Na You in 2014, Boogati, Shoki and Love Me and Osinachi was the sixth BANGING single in a growing list of hits which features Phyno who compliments Humblesmith in a suave duet that will have fans of Nigerian music reeling with delight. already, the song is making waves on radio stations,Tv stations,Streets,Clubs and even on social media Platforms !
I’ve been a fan of L.A.X since his days with Flyboiz, Busy Body is still a tune by the way. He continues to grow as an artist and I know a few people were skeptical about how well he’ll merge with Wizkid after her was signed to Starboy, but each single he has dropped so far has earned a lot of airplays. This year, he’s had more music material released while earning himself features with diasporan act, Tyson and producer,Biano Summers. At present, his recent single Fine Boy with Olamide has been known to cause ripples at various after work chill-spots all over town.
In the same vein, his latest club single Open And Close is gradually picking up pace, while Caro andGinger still remain the new school afro music classics for the dance floor.
