Here is a list of some artists worth watching out for in 2018 because they are on a conscious mission to continue ruling the music space.
Wizkid, Davido, Olamide, Maleek Berry, Mayorkun, Simi, Toby Grey, Reekado Banks, Kiss Daniel, Falz, Niniola, Soti, Tekno and Adekunle Gold
Wizkid, aka ‘Wizlion’, as he is fondly called. From the success of his hit songs including ‘Manya’, ‘Come Closer’, ‘Daddy Yo’ among others and the countless African cum international awards he bagged, it is naturally expected that he won’t be resting on his oars because he is on a conscious mission to remain the reigning king of pop in Nigeria, Africa and beyond.
After crowning a successful 2017 with his 30 Billion concert which has continued to be the talk of the town both locally and internationally, no doubt, pop singer, David Adeleke, aka Davido, will be scheming on how to stupefy his fans by bringing his best on board in 2018.
With his hit song, ‘Wo’, off his ‘Lagos Na Wah’ album and the success of his sold out concert, OLIC4, YBNL henchman, Olamide continues to rule as king of the streets and trust me he is not ready to abdicate for any other artiste. Though Showtime believes his Lagos Na Wah album wasn’t impressive, his ‘Wo’ single is enough to get him on this list of artists to watch in 2018.
Maleek Berry is on Showtime’s spotlight like never before. How he courted spotlight in 2017 was so simple; his hit songs ‘Eko Miami’, ‘Been Calling’ among other collaborative musical efforts earned him a comfortable spot on the Nigerian music scene in 2017 and he is sure on the rise as he is set to take on the music space by storm in 2018.
Mayorkun’s fortune on the Nigerian music space would sky-rocket at the speed it did. With subsequent singles such as ‘Sade’, ‘Mama’ and lately ‘Che Che’, coupled with the debut of his concert ‘Mayor of Lagos, he has indeed proved he is equipped with musical arsenal formidable enough to dominate the music scene in 2018.
Simi release of her album, debut concert, stellar stage performances at top industry shows, and interesting music videos, were proofs this diva is worth watching. Without an iota of sentiment, her singles and their videos were a back to back hit which is why Showtime believes 2018 will not be an exception.
7. Reekado Banks
Mavin Records music act, Ayoleyi Hanniel, better known as Reekado Banks is definitely one Nigerian artiste to be on the lookout for in 2018.
8. Kiss Daniel
Kiss Daniel is one the best raping song master 2017 and will know he is going do better more in 2018. Trust me; the talented singer may be locking horns with Tekno, Runtown, and others for supremacy in 2018.
2017, ending it with his debut concert ‘The Falz Experience’. Since he broke into the limelight with his unique kind of rap music, he hasn’t failed to continue living up to expectation with good music which is one out of many reasons Showtime believes he should be one of the artists to watch in 2018.
Niniola Nigerian female music acts to be on the keen lookout for in 2018.
who knows what this 2018 is turning out to her she might go international like Wizkid and Davido.
