Nigerian Artist continue their dominance in Africa. CNN international recently made a list on Africa’s ten biggest music stars  which was determined by fame ,fans , number of concerts the artistes have performed across the world.Nigerian Music stars (Asa ,Nneka and Tuface) took the first 3 out of 4 places on the list. We are surprised some other Nigerian stars did not make the list. Who do you think they omitted?

  1. they didnt omit anybody..from those criteria nobody was omitted..Asa and nneka have really toured the world for concerts, even more than tuface..
    congrats to all three of them

  2. This are people that talk real world talk and send messages with their music not people that just entertain and pull crowd for the money. Nice pick CNN.

  3. They omitted Femi and Seun Kuti. For D’banj and P Square, they should wait for their time. D’banj hardly does international concert he only sings in Nigeria. P Square only tours Africa except for last year’s US tour. They should raise thier games.
