Newly wedded to afrosoul star adekunle, vocalist and voice engineer simi is one of the most trending artiste of 200 with her song ‘duduke’ which she sang for her unborn child, she being pregnant by then….duduke became well accepted when top music stars and nollywood actors/actresses began making short video clips of the song, and getting a much larger crowd to start making challenges via tik tok with a dmmy tummy pregnancy. duduke came a bit after her joined track with mavin record ladipoe ‘KNOW YOU’ simi have already given birth at the time of writing thhis article..
shy looking but very talented afro-fusion star, oxlade came through this year with ‘away’ off his oxygen EP .the artiste whom himself had confessed of being shocked about the warmth and exciting reception away recieved, had to make a reshuffle of plans with his management and had a very simple but intruiging visuals for the song has made it to being the crooner of one of the top songs in 2020 in nigeria..so far so good.the video was relatively a success also, hitting a million views on youtube in no less time. away video wAS SHOT and directed by notable videographer –

the artiste who dropped call as a follow up track after his big collaborative feature with ghana-nigerian superstar,mr eazi fondly known as zagadat when he first appeared i the nigerian scene early 2015 with well noted track ‘holy water’ and also exclusive superstar, dj neptune on ‘nobody’…the vido is sponsored by empawa productions. call is noted ads our ladies ringtone at the moment of writing this article,smiles (am jealous,you know)
omah lay -bad influence
and boom!!! here’s the guy that gave us shockers! porthacourt bred artiste, omah lay is undoubtely one of, if not thhe biggest thing that happened to thr naija music industry in 2020. its said that he so much took the industry by a whole lotta surprise that jealous co-artistes been saying his streams/plays are fake, just a bid to sooth their aching nerves.but we all know deep down that the emergence of this star is purely as a result of good vibes and the best of a focused management, utmostly ready and were prepared to sell their artiste sound to the world.
omah lay’s EP had dropped and gotten over 20 million streams on all digital platfforms, now that sounds imcredible,wooah
!!! bad influence,which is one of the track on the ep is well distinguished and most loved by all, though the whole ep on its on is a vibe,needless to say. fans have also been calling out to the artiste to drop visual for atleast one of the songs on the ep, and most of them are going for a video of a particular track, your gueess’s good as mine, lols..
