A bit disappointed though, as no new talent has been discovered this year, we have not seen any Kiss-Daniel-like type of artiste springing up and dictating the sound in the industry. Rather, the its been the well-known hit makers that held down this year.
Special recognition to 13 year old Destiny Boy who has impressed with several covers to popular songs. and we hope for the best for him in 2018.
Let’s dive right into this dirty job, yes dirty job because many of our readers will either like or dislike our compilation, which is very understanding as everyone has their own opinion of who is HOT and who isn’t.

He has worked with acts like Wizkid, Davido, Runtown. etc. In the past / currently he has/working with Wizkid on so many hit songs and he also produced couple of tracks on Wizkid‘s recent international album. “Sounds From The Other Side“. When it comes to production he is very talented and his sounds are very distinct which has kept him soaring higher.
Maleek Berry is finally getting the recognition he deserves as an artiste, his style is unique and almost no one sounds like him in Nigeria at the moment. The singer dropped several chart topping songs this year, like; 4 Me, Kontrol, Been Calling, Bend It. etc and has since being ladies favourite.
