We may have been dealing with a pandemic that paralyzed the music industry for months, but 2020 had some positive moments, one of which has to be the breakthrough stars we discovered.
The lockdown perhaps gave everyone the time to listen to music a lot more, which led to the discovery of talented up-and-coming artistes who have become household names in the past couple of months.
Some the names like Bella Shmurda were predicted to become bigger stars in 2020, however, folks like Omah Lay came without a warning and blew us away with beautiful music. Those on this list have either dropped amazing projects, sensational singles or done both.
Below are some of the hottest breakthrough stars of 2020.
Born Akinbiyi Abiola Ahmed, Bella Shmurda, has so far had a fantastic year just like he predicted in his smash hit ‘Vision 2020’. The year started on the right note for him after he dropped a widely acclaimed EP ‘High Tension‘. He made another resurgence with the raving street banger ‘Cash App‘. At the moment best remembered for bringing his A-game on ‘Triumphant‘, a song by Olamide on ‘Carpe Diem’ album. He again bagged a superstar feature on Davido’s ‘A Better Time’ album, if you ask me Bella Shmurda has been unstoppable in the face of the pandemic and lockdown.
