Top 10 Hottest Nigerian Artists In 2017 (So Far)


A NEW LIST HAS BEEN COMPILED THIS DECEMBER 2017 – Top 10 Hottest Nigerian Artists In 2017

10 Hottest Nigerian Artists In 2017 (So Far)

2017 has been an interesting year to far, the year started very slow with not so massive tunes until towards the middle of year when we had massive spree of banger after banger from our favorite artistes.

A bit disappointed though, as we have not seen any Kiss-Daniel-like type of artiste springing up and dictating the sound in the industry. It’s been the well-known hit makers holding down this year so far. Few months to the end of the year and we will like to see surprises.

Only one surprising entry into the scene so far, though in an unsigned or rather unofficial way is – 13 year old Destiny Boy who has impressed with several covers to popular songs.

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.

10. Simi

Simi has had an exciting year already and she can comfortably fold her hands and watch the remaining part of the year go by . The X3M Music queen started the year on a very good note with the release of the infectious tune Smile For Me and later Joromi which ushered in her album “Simisola“which dropped 8th September 2017. (Amazing album – watch out for our review on

9. Yemi Alade


Mama Africa as she calls herself, is easily the most hard working female act in Africa. Yemi Alade constantly puts herself out there, extending her fan base more than any female Nigerian act has ever done and it’s paying off for her. The female Afro-pop act signed to Effyzzie Music Group might not be topping the charts in Nigeria but she is sure making waves in other African countries and certainly laughing to the banks

She dropped her 2017 EP – “Mama Afrique’ – Notable songs – Knack Am, Charliee, Marry Me, Get Through This ft Mi Casa.. etc

  1. Comment:Runtown has shown great passion And dedication to his hard work And for me he is my crooner, 2017 madlove for him. thumbs up.

  2. it is good but olamide should be in no one as long as it is for nigeria and what of kiss daniel, phyno, timaya, skales, korede bello, falz, reminisce, 9ice, vector and others

  3. the list is good but olamide should be number one not wiskid. wiskid should be number two because wiskid is not here and others and here, wiskid is now international. if you want to put him there he should be number two, no offence is just the fact

  4. d list wack ojere….#Davido should be on no1 spot if you are talking about hottest artiste for 2017….#30billion world tour no b beans…. u just made it clear dat u are a wizkid fan! sentiments

  5. I am sure you made this list so it creates an argument. 1stly, this list can’t be complete without the only hardworking artist in Nigeria if not Africa at large. Tiwa Savage, it can’t have Yemi Alade, Ycee, Simi, Tekno and Mr Eazi without the only person who is disturbing Africa now. the most featured musician in Africa 2017. the only musician to take a martenity leave, comes back with one single” allover” and its topping charts all over Africa till Nov. the most socially responsible musician is Tiwa, this list is incomplete. There’s no way you can leave out the obvious. 1.Wizkid 2. Davido 3.Tiwa Savage 4. Maleekberry. 5.Olamide and you can shuffle the rest including Simi but Yemi is out of top 10 now.

  6. that wasn’t a great list at all kiss daniel isn’t among them infact he his should be the second if not the frist
