Since the dawn of the past decade, the Nigerian music industry has witnessed year after year rookie music stars blow up into established acts.
The list of such acts is quite inexhaustible, however, some of the biggest breakthrough music stars have been, Wande Coal, Wizkid, Davido, Kizz Daniel, … Rema etc. While some of these music stars gain entrance without warning some have been predicted to takeover by industry gatekeepers.
Yet again, Jaguda outlines some music rookies that are set to takeover in 2020 with the right song, right move and a good team. Some of the names are quite familiar but it is predicted they will blow up into bigger music stars this year.
Here is our list:
A couple of weeks after Lil Frosh got signed to AMW/DMW, the same opportunity opened up for ZinoLeesky. He was signed to Naira Marley’s newly launched music imprint Marlian Music. Before now many industry gatekeepers have tipped ZinoLeesky to be the next breakout star from the streets of Lagos. So far he has pushed his craft well as an indie artiste before getting signed. Now more resources are available at his disposal. More than anything else we hope to see Azeez Oniyide ride into national prominence on the back of monster hit records. Many Nigerians are getting to know him and more importantly his music all that is needed from him is to up his game this year. It is in confidence that we list him as one act to blow up in 2020.
