Top 5 Music Labels That Influenced The Nigerian Music Scene in 2015

The Nigerian entertainment industry has been termed as the largest in Africa and some 5 record labels have stood out in the year 2015 amongst other countless music record labels striving to gain prominence. Check out this list of record labels that have made waves this year:
(1) G-WorldWide Entertainment:
This label was shot into the limelight this year after the huge success of its act, Kiss Daniels’ late 2014 released single “Woju” in the first quarter of 2015. With a star-studded remix which had A-listers Davido and Tiwa Savage on it, a street anthem was born, a ‘banging’ tune one could not easily hate and if “Woju” didn’t hit it for anyone, “Laye” definitely did. Just like Davido, Kiss Daniels single-handedly put this label on the map this year and one can only see the future getting brighter for this label considering the talent of another of its acts- SugarBoy. Raba which is a collaborative effort between the aforementioned acts and DJ Shabsy is already a fan favourite and has hit it on certain charts this year and this gives the label the tag of one notable for a mention as an influential record label in the Nigerian music scene this year.
(2) HKN Gang:
HKN Gang – Certain labels have just a single artiste who does all the “push” for them and although Danagog through ‘Koba’ and ‘Pelumo’ tried to be the other shining light in the label it is visibly evident that Davido’s collaborations, headlines and most importantly singles like ‘Fans Mi’, and most recently ‘Dodo’ was the necessary antidote the HKN music group needed to avoid falling below the standards of making an impact in the Nigerian music scene this year and at such is worthy of having a mention in this list.
(3) FiveStar Music
The label is owned by Nigerian business mogul, E-Money. This label was host to the biggest celebrity ‘stunt’ of the year as ‘Skibii’s death stunt’ was the most trending occurrence of the Nigerian music scene. However this label has this year churned out the biggest ‘beer parlour’ song of the year. “After the reggae play the blues, the blues the blues!” With Harrysong and KCee also dropping some chart friendly singles like ‘Ofeshe’ and ‘Turn by Turn’ respectively during the course of the year, this label has been one at the forefront of happenings and trends in the Nigerian music scene in 2015.
(4) Mavins Record
Formed in 2012, the mavin group has unsurprisingly moved its way to the top as the foremost music group in the country. Headed by Don Jazzy and home to acts like Korede Bello, Reekado Banks, Di’ja, D’Prince, Dr Sid, Tiwa Savage and producers like Altims & Babyfresh, the MAVINS has been the label behind top hits like “Godwin” ,”Awww” ,”Katapot” ,”Darling Darling”, “Oga Titus” which have all garnered huge success in popularity and acceptance in the Nigerian music scene of 2015. With notable collaborations like “Gift(iyanya)” ,”I concur (Timaya)” featuring Donjazzy, “Woju remix (Kiss Daniels)” “Gbemileke(Skuki)” etc it is not difficult to see why this label is one of the most influential on the Nigerian Music scene for the year 2015 as their artistes have made notable strides in the industry.
(5) YBNL Movement
This ‘movement’ as its foremost act ‘Olamide’ prefers to refer to it has been arguably the biggest label in Nigeria this year. Almost no single month has gone by without a chart topping single dropping from any of the acts in this label. From Lil Kesh’s Gbese, Efejoku to Olamide’s ShakitiBobo, Lagos Boys to Adekunle Gold’s Orente, Sade and incredible features (olamide is nigeria’s most featured artiste of 2015) on which this label’s acts have excelled it is rather deserving that this label takes the top spot on this list.
