The Best Artists Comebacks in Nigeria
The Nigerian music scene is by far the most competitive in the continent of Africa. It’s almost impossible for most artist in the industry to maintane a streak of hits or at least remain relevant as regards music charts for a decade. Artists like X-Project, Konga, Bigiano e.t.c where what music pundits will describe as one-hit wonders, as their singular hit songs was the only gift fortune could offer them, before they became passive.
While 2Face (2 Baba) is said to be the epitome of career longevity in the Nigerian music scene, non of his contemporaries have been able to replicate his consistency. But some artists have been able to revive their careers in grand style in the industry. Chief amongst tbese artists are D Banj and Duncan Mighty
The acclaimed Port Harcourt first son was not just an Afrobeats mystro, but a hero of Nigerian popular culture. The country first had a feel his superior skill when he drop the smash single “Dance for Me”. He went to release anthems like “Ako Na Uche” and “Ijeoma” to the delight of his fans across Nigeria and Africa at large. In 2010, his most viral song “Port Harcourt First Son” and the whole of his city rallied around him to endorse his claim.
But from 2010 onwards, the PH don, faced some setbacks in nationwide reception of his music. His albums Legacy (2010), Footprints (2012), received little promotion from the mainstream media establishments in the country. Even though he had regional hits like Obianuju, the country’s music lovers where occupied with younger artists with a more popular variation of Afrobeats.
The “Scatter my Dada” crooner saw a dramatic resurgence in his career after his collaboration with Wizkid on the “Fake Love” smash hit single in 2018. He went on to collaborate with Tiwa Savage on the “Lova Lova” hit track, and since then he’s regained the attention of the country.
The Koko master needs no introduction. His entry into the Nigerian music industry with his “Tongolo” monster hit off the No Long Thing album made him the hottest pop star in West Africa in 2005. The albums and hits that followed after 2005 were well documented and celebrated. But the dissolution of Mo’ Hitz Records and his separation from his longtime music partner, Don Jazzy, saw a drastic decline in the quality of his songs followed by harsh criticisms from music pundits who felt his career had come an eventual end.
D’Banj’s resurgence came in 2018 when he teamed up with Slim Case and Mr. Real to deliver one of the hottest top 5 songs of that year, “Issa Banger”. He also went on to drop the “Baecation” hit song which featured 2 Baba in 2019.
