Keshinro Ololade who is better known as Lil Kesh used to be one of the brightest kid on the block if you rewind to 2014/15. He was one of the new kids with the most musical influence and traction at the time. He had about the biggest song that year, ‘shoki’, well laced with dance steps and all.
As we all know, Kesh’s fan base grew rapidly under the watch and supervision of his then record label boss Olamide. Every song he was involved in at the time was a hit back to back. The former YBNL soldier had chart topping singles and every DJ’s playlist wasn’t complete without garnishing it with heavy tunes like “Gbese”, “Efejoku”, “Is It Because I Love You” etc. The young music star was a hot stuff and picked up several awards nomination on his way. Unfortunately, the 2015 Headies Awards fiasco was his biggest award loss yet. He hasn’t really recovered from that night.
But at this point, Lil Kesh’s career has hit a pause button or in a worse scenario taken a nosedive. The steep decline may have followed after he severed ties with YBNL contractually to set up his own YAGI records. In the last 16 months Lil Kesh has not had a personal bona fide hit record.
In another perspective, Mavin Records artiste Korede Bello stocks has diminished so bad in recent times. The singer used to be a favorite.
Korede Bello best moments include his verses on joint Mavin songs like “Dorobucci”, “Adaobi”. His biggest break came with a track he called “God Win”, with which he bagged awards. “God Win” appeal to the widest audience in the country, both Christians, Muslims etc. Same Korede managed to keep up the tempo with otter chart toppers like “Romantic” ft Tiwa Savage and “Do Like That”. Since then he tanked. His debut album “Belloved” was just another body of work you always want to erase out of your memory like it never happened. His attempts to stage a comeback yielded little success with singles like “Melanin Popping”, “Work It”, “Sote“, “2geda”, and lately “Stamina”.
Perhaps nobody want to say it out loud, but Lil Kesh and Korede Bello have been trashy in the past 16 months.
How much love do you have for your music stars? Nigerian music acts Lil Kesh and Korede Bello careers aren’t in the best form at the moment. It’s seems they’re drowning slowly if you had a chance whose career would you save from drowning? Who would that person be?
Lil Kesh or Korede Bello?
