4. Mr Eazi
The first part of this year, the Nigerian / Ghanaian ( …still deciding) singer Mr Eazi was on fire, with the release of his debut album “Accra To Lagos”. (READ OUR REVIEW HERE) The album has many hit songs like Leg Over, Fight ft DJ Cuppy, Skin Tight ft Mr Tekno, Feelings, Tilapia and Life Is Eazi (feat. Olamide & Phyno). and recently he dropped another hot tune – Pour Me Water
He released and featured on several songs. He’s been on the international spotlight very frequently, several big interviews and of course a lot of sold out shows especially in the UK but unfortunately still no awards..

Olamide is a confirmed hit maker who started up really slow beginning of this year. He dropped a good number of songs but they didn’t deliver the level of impact we’ve come to expect of YBNL boss. He also had some major intentional collaborations: like Fine Girl by Wale… etc. and of course countless* numbers of features locally. He somehow got back his grip and it’s been one banger to another, serving the best of street jams to his fans after the release of WO,.
Olamide has also released his 6th studio album,which features some good songs though many has tagged the album as a flop already.
He has also held one of the biggest concerts in Lagos featuring all the big names in the industry.
Wizkid needs no introduction nor justification for being on our No. 2. He has been nothing but a hard worker since the beginning of the year. Wizkid went international since 2016 and still counting. He has featured top acts internationally and has also been featured. He has topped billboard charts, radio, blogs. etc. sold out shows around the world. won over many awards already in 2017. His latest single – Manya is out and banging on every medium.
Our initial list in June 2017 had Wizkid on No. 1 but things got a bit interesting after then which has brought him down to No. 2
