Several years ago, we rarely had females who could shut down a show or even headline a concert. It was just guys all through.
Who even had time to listen to the females when there were people like 2face, D’banjand a host of others with hordes of followers.
Having a female artiste was very risky, people could end up not liking her just like what’s happening with Dija. And most females have a short time span and relevance on the scene.
After about 4years, they want to marry and settle down. Who’s still hearing from Evaor Bouqui the rapper. What about Sasha or Mochedda?
But it seems it had changed. People like Tiwa Savage and Simi have been relevant since 2014. And more girls are joining the scene also. But 2018 has become so hot with these ladies.
1. Tiwa Savage
To be frank, what is working for Tiwa Savageis her amazing sex appeal and her controversies with Wizkid.
She has been staying afloat with these things. Wherever you see Wizkid, you’ll see Tiwa Savage.
It got so intense that people began to think Wizkid was already “doing” Aunty Tiwa lowkey. But Tiwa Savage has been hot really this year.
Who remembers that “Codeine Diet” song? She has also been able to entice us with her amazing vocals. Tiwa get voice abeg 😍.
She just dropped her Tiwa’s Vibe video and it’s everything you can ask for in a Song/Video. She’s the boss joor.
2. Yemi Alade
Self-Acclaimed Mama Africa was in the news lately after she claimed she’s of the same importance as Wizkid & Davido in Nigeria.
Trust Nigerians na, they Roasted her Alive online 😂. She’s actually making Nigeria proud as she’s currently one of the greatest export of Nigerian Music to other part of Africa and the World at Large.
Over the years, Yemi Alade has featured many great African Acts and her performances keeps putting Nigeria on the Map of country with the best singers.
Still the same old Simi we know. What if we tell you Simi hasn’t released any song this year. Her strategy has been extraordinary this year.
Using the same template Tiwa Savage is using with Wizkid, she had a collaboration with Falz on “Foreign” and also her impact was felt on Adekunle Gold‘s About 30 album. And who else forgot, Simi won a whooping three awards at the Headies.
4. Seyi Shay
While we saw a dry and boring Seyi Shay at The Headies, she has also been killing it in 2018, released her EP “Electric Package” and it was fire. Especially that “Surrender” single with Kiss Daniel.
What about that “Lara and the Beat” movie in which she kissed Vector?
Surprised Niniola is on the list? Nah let’s not be. The “Maradona” crooner had a splendid 2017 and she’s already shutting down 2018 as well.
Slowly, her music has begun to penetrate the ends of the world as she has been getting invites to perform at South Africa and even North America.
Have we forgotten her nomination for the BET Viewers Choice Award. That’s a pointer to the fact that there’s World is listening to her.
Last week, Grammy Nominated act, DJ Snake dropped a remake of Niniola’s hit, Maradona.
Gently, Teniola has begun to penetrate our hearts with feel good music. Songs that make you feel at home and cool off that stress.
Teniola won the Best New act at the Headies, her life has changed since then. Her drama on social media has been quite extraordinary.
