Top Best Nigerian Breakthrough Artiste 2020…
It’s a known fact that we humans seldom come to a united agreement but I’m positive that we can all agree that 2020 has been a revealing year for amazing musical projects and talents as well. This notion engineers the purpose of this article as we’d be looking into the Top Breakthrough Artiste in Nigeria so far in 2020.
Bad Boy Timz
Olorunyomi Oloruntimilehin aka Bad Boy Timz is a professional performing musical act, songwriter as well as a producer.
His interest in music was picked up at a younger age where he started music as a chorister in his church choir then went further to putting musical pieces together while he was in college which led to a viral freestyle he made some years back that earned him his family support.
Got signed in 2019 but didn’t really register his musical presence on the industry at large despite releasing numerous projects including “Hustle” with Zlatan Ibile.
His moment of glory surfaced after he dropped the internet sensation song “Michael Jackson” which took the whole country by storm, registering amazing numbers on multiple streaming platforms, so huge a success that he went further to release 2 more versions with collaborative efforts respectively from the “Gege” crooner “Mayorkun” and the “makanaki” herself “Teni” which equally had music listeners swooned.
His highlights didn’t cease there as he earned a spot on the amazing CARPE DIEM album from YBNL’s Big Boss – Olamide Baddo on the hit song “LOADING” which has evidently put the streets into a frenzy.
From all he’s achieved this year alone, it’s evident that he was a top player who has earned every rights to make this List.
Akinbiyi Abiola Ahmed popularly known as Bella Shmurda or Boy Bella is a 23 years old Singer/Songwriter whose rise to stardom came after the remix of his song “Vision 2020” which had Olamide on it, a really massive song that ushered us into the greatness that was to come this year.
2020 kicked off for him with a beautiful body of work “High Tension” The Ep which garnered over 5 million streams on audiomack it its first month, a laudable achievement for a fast rising artiste if we do say so.
With evident success from hit singles like “Dangbana Orisa” and multiple collaborations with A list artistes like Runtown, Davido and the much accepted rave of the moment “Triumphant” which is a beautiful single out of Olamide’s recently released album “Carpe Diem”, it is beyond doubt that Bella Shmurda has had an amazing year put together with more promising Projects to come.
Port Harcourt breakout music artiste – Stanley omah didia who doubles as a producer has evidently beyond every possible doubt had an extraordinary year with one of the biggest debut EP in the history of Nigerian music industry.
From out the blues it seemed he appeared despite the fact that he’s had footprints in the industry as far back as 2019 with singles like “Hey Brother” and “Do not disturb”.
His massive break came after the release of “You” a smashing hit single that ushered the release of his follow up debut EP “Get Layd” which we could say for a fact was full of hits evident from the massive influence it had on social media video platforms like TikTok and it’s like with Tens of Millions of streams on multiple platforms.
One would think he’d take a step back after achieving such a massive success in a short while but with his recent release of his sophomore EP “What have we done” and an amazing collab on olamide’s hit single “Infinity” off his 11th studio album, It appears Omah Lay might be coming for the very crown of the big guns, hmmm Wahala be like Bicycle.
