15 Nigerian music stars who’ve shockingly become irrelevant in 2016 (With Pictures)


Nigerian music stars – The year 2016 has been an amazing year in terms and view of the growth in the music industry with several international recognitions, collaborations and more. But several musicians have been off the radar which is pretty disturbing. With pop stars Wizkid and Davido blazing the trail and others following closely, the Nigerian music industry is set to conquer new terrains and open more doors for the next generation given the present accomplishments. And this is remarkably sweet.


But what we find unusual is the fact certain musicians have been off the radar in what has been a boisterous year, in a thriving music industry as ours and in an era with absolute buzz and prospects for more.

It is pretty discomforting.

While some of the names on this list may be suffering from an unusual form of complacency (given they’ve got only a little compared to what they can actually achieve), other names on this list are an embodiment of blandness characterized by flat displays, absence when they least should and more.

The fans are the winners in all of this because whatever the case they have interesting pieces to listen to any day and anytime given the volume of music currently circulating within the internet and mainstream Nigeria.

This piece has nothing personal against anyone or group of persons but it will have served its purpose if it succeeds in the minimal task of nudging some of our Nigerian musicians here so that they realize the need to awaken from their slumber as the Nigerian entertainment industry is on the cusp of rewriting history on several planes.

This said, we present 15 Nigerian musicians who have gone off the radar in 2016 and need to get their acts together as now is the time:

The 30-year-old talented R&B singer has been a bit too quiet all year leaving us with the impression that she is on a hiatus. We wonder who cleared her for this sort of break on the EME management.
