15 Hottest Nigerian Hip Hop Artists In 2015

Below is a list of the hottest acts in Nigerian music at the moment; those with the hottest songs, endorsements, tours, record deals, mega moves on the local and international scene, the award winners, and in general, their lifestyle.

1. Olamide

Starting from his latest, his long awaited 5th studio album is here ‘eyan mayweather’, that’s quite an achievement. He got us thrilled this year with hit songs; shakiti Bobo, Lagos boy and many others. Aside being nominated for several awards this year, he has already bagged artiste of the year and Rap Artiste of the Year (Male) at the 2015 The City People Entertainment Awards held in August.

2. Wizkid

Just like Olamide, he has been nominated for several awards this year. His hit single ‘ojuelegba’ and it’s remix which featured American singer, Drake, is widely talked about. He recently renewed his endorsement deal with Pepsi.

3. Davido

‘Fan mi’ crooner who recently got back from his UK tour is not left behind. He also released series of singles since this year, though he cancelled the release of his studio album release till date.

4. Lil Kesh

Fast-rising pop star hasn’t been dulling since his debut in music. He could be referred as the founder of shoki! A dance step now known by all. He got few awards to his name too.

5. Patoranking

Nnaemeka Patirck took the streets with his unbeatable hit single ‘My woman, My everything’, featuring former Mo’Hit records singer, Wande Coal. He also got few awards trailing his path this year.

6. Yemi Alade

She’s the leading female artiste in west Africa at the moment. She has scores of awards in her shelve and has been trying her best to make her fans feel the groove in her music. The singer recently launched a new fashion line.

7. Kiss Daniel

Woju crooner got us all believing in him after he dropped the ‘raba’, Woju and the remix, then ‘Laye’. He has won awards too.

8. Korede Bello

His single ‘Godwin’ got massive hit from loving fans and it is still thrills today.

9. HarrySong

‘Reggae-blue’ is all over the world.

10. Skales

I am for real, Ijo Ayo and the most played, Shake Body are spinning in the air.

11. Cynthia Morgan

Cynthia Morgan has released some really good songs and videos this year. It’s been a good year for the Northside Inc. Dancehall act.

12. Seyi Shay

Seyi Shay‘s latest song and video “Right Now” is doing pretty well on the airwaves. She also got herself an international recording contract with UK-based imprint, Island Records.

13. Reekado Banks

The Mavin next-rated Reekado Banks act has been on over 25 songs in the last 12-18 months, with songs like Katapot, Sugarbaby and Corner becoming fan favourites.

14. Wande Coal

Wande did enough on “Ashimapeyin “, Patoranking’s “My Woman My Everything“, and Flavour’s “ Wake Up (Hololo) ” to merit the list.

15. Tekno

“Duro” is one of the hottest songs out at the moment. Thanks to the talents of Triple MG act Tekno and, of course, Dj Coublon. Hopefully, ultra-talented singer, dancer and producer will do so much more and finally make the jump we expect.
