10 Best Hottest Musicians Of 2020 Ever
The African Giant, Spaceship Entertainment boss, and Atlantic Records artist Burna Boy have maintained his hot seat consistently for 3 years now.
He has dropped Grammy-worthy albums three years during a row bagging two nominations within the process. While music and entertainment were generally impacted by the pandemic Burna Boy maintained his work ethic at a high level.
He dropped hits, bagged a Grammy nomination for ‘Twice As Tall’ and made some outstanding collaborations with international brands during the year. ‘Twice As Tall’ is that the highest-charting Nigerian album on the Billboard Hot 2020 Albums Chart, UK Album Chart, etc.
Born and raised in Port Harcourt, Stanley Omah Didia, rose from a comparatively unknown background to become one of the foremost wanted Nigerian musicians this year.
Omah Lay braved the pandemic and lockdown that followed to become one among Nigeria’s most-streamed artists this year.
His debut extended play ‘Get Layd‘ wasn’t only well-received but rated together of the simplest projects released by a Nigerian music star within the past 12 months.
His fame wasn’t limited to the borders of Nigeria, thus far was the debut Apple Music Africa Rising Artist, Audiomack Up Now Artist, etc. He also bagged the 14th Headies Award ‘Next Rated’ nomination, ‘Best Breakthrough’ at the forthcoming MTV MAMA 2021.
This and lots of more make Omah Lay one of the most well-liked Nigerian musicians this civil year.
This would be the primary time Mayorkun would be featured within the list of the most well liked Nigerian musicians and also becoming a worthy contender for artist of the year.
The DMW singer has been nothing but fantastic this year. He has dropped back to back hits with no miss, ‘Geng‘, ‘Of Lagos‘, ‘Betty Butter‘ and therefore the most up-to-date ‘Your Body‘. His effort as a guest artist on every song he was featured in was exceptionally good.
In about four years he’s now a formidable contender for the artist of the year alongside his boss Davido. The sweet thing is that if it had been solely between both of them, Mayorkun would win it. With this type, we will easily say Mayorkun has moved into the league of A-list artists.
For the past few years, Olamide has maintained the attitude of putting out an album per annum .
But, last year Baddo skipped a beat and didn’t put out an album. Past forward to 2020, the rapper and singer put out two projects, the ‘999’ EP and ‘Carpe Diem‘ album.
The extended play wasn’t memorable hereafterOlamide found his way back to the highest with ‘Carpe Diem’.
The album bangs hard with hits like ‘Infinity‘, ‘Triumphant‘, ‘Loading‘ etc. Olamide’s numbers have gone abreast of music streaming platforms because his latest album features a great replay value.
He has also groomed Fireboy DML into one, among the most well liked acts within the past 16 months.
Adedamola Adefolahan referred to as Fireboy DML is shaping up to be one among the simplest proteges under Olamide. he’s still holding us spellbound together with his musical talent leading us into new depths of his multilayered artistry.
Fireboy dropped the successful album LTG towards the top of last year which suggests he had hit songs on the album spilling into 2020. While we were still feasting on LTG, he dropped his sophomore ‘Apollo’ to rave reviews.
This year Fireboy DML took his dominance beyond Nigeria as he bagged deals with EA Sports FIFA 21, Empire, MOBO Awards nomination, etc. he’s easily 5 most-streamed Nigerian artists within the past 12 months across several platforms.
People might think Jonzing World flagship artist Divine Ikubor better referred to as Rema had a quiet year but that’s not really the case.
Rema has maintained his star power right from 2019 into 2020. One index to understand what proportion in-demand an artist is, is how often people look them abreast of search engines.
This year the ‘Dumebi’ hitmaker made the list of the foremost searches in Nigeria. he’s the second most searched person on Google Nigeria, his songs ‘Ginger Me’ and ‘Woman’ was a number of the highest 10 most searched songs in Nigeria.
He performed on the American television network show Jimmy Kimmel Live. He won an Afrimma award as ‘Best Male West Africa’, got nominated twice at the MOBO Awards, and made the EA Sports FIFA 21 official soundtrack. a number of these achievements may fly under the radar all of a sudden.
- Bella Shmurda
Bella Shmurda’s hit song ‘Vision 2020’ did age well tons better than all those promises within the government MDGs. The year clothed massive for the LASU student who checked tons of milestones in his career.
At the instant, fine boy Bella has one among the most well liked street anthems ‘Cash App‘, some crazy collaborations etc. We may have wrongly assumed Bella Shmurda would take a chill pill after dropping his ‘High Tension’ EP within the half-moon of this year on the other hand he goes ‘hotter hotter’.
During this season of festivity, Bella Shmurda is killing shows back to back in Naija and beyond, so he happens to be on the list of the Best Hottest Musicians Of 2020
The mother of 1 is that the only female artist on our list, which is extremely easy to elucidate. Simi has the most important song ‘Duduke‘, by a female Nigerian music star this year.
Rightfully, Simi could easily excuse herself and take a hiatus as an expectant mother and subsequently a nursing mum but she kept it going regardless.
She gave us one among the most important records this year while unveiling her pregnancy to fans. She was delivered of a gorgeous daughter and a number of other months later dropped an EP effortlessly.
Oh, let’s not forget how she assisted Ladipoe to urge the most important song of his career yet ‘Know You’. For maternal reasons, Simi would be rocking stages, and killing shows back to back. We can’t exactly wait to ascertain her back on stage again.
This sort of list wouldn’t be complete without the Starboy featuring. it’s been an excellent year for Ayodeji Balogun especially for the successful release of his fourth studio album ‘Made In Lagos‘.
Without dalliance, the body of labor topped charts across Nigeria and beyond. The collaborations were quite strategic especially targeted at breaking further into the ecu and US markets and let’s say that figured out reasonably well.
Only recently, former US Barack Obama named a track from the ‘Made In Lagos‘ album ‘Essence’ as his favorite song of 2020. Obama also listed ‘Smile‘ in his annual summer playlist which once more gives visibility to the artist and his work. He won the ‘Best International Act’ award at the MOBOs.
If Davido, the DMW boss is not on the list of the Best Hottest Musicians Of 2020, then the list isn’t complete. The singer had tons happening with him this year that he actually decided to require an opportunity from social media for several months.
He came back stronger with successful lead single ‘Fem’, adjudged the amount 1 song during the October End Sars protest across Nigeria. He later dished out a 17-track album ‘A Better Time‘ with a stellar lineup of international collaborators.
