on

The Nigerian music industry has take over the world in modern times. In fact, Afrobeats is said to be the fastest growing music genre in the world. Little wonder how the prominent Nigerian artistes are beginning to make their marks in several parts of the world.

In this article, we will look at how well the Nigerian music industry has improved and all the beautiful ways it has impacted the Nigeria as a nation.

Pioneered by the Late Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Afrobeats is an African genre of music which undoubtedly brings life and vibes to the listening ear. We have been blessed in recent times to be part of a generation that is taking Afrobeats worldwide. A couple of years ago, Afrobeats was not recognized all around the world. Only a few people with a vast knowledge about African music from other continents truly knew what Afrobeats sounds like. However, these days we have Afrobeats sound all across the world, most especially in the United States of America.

Everything has been excellent so far and it is all thanks to all the Nigerian artistes (past and present) who have contributed to the movement.

The likes of Fela, Seun Kuti, The Plantation Boys, all members of the Mo Hits All stars group, styl plus, PSquare, Durella, Duncan Mighty, Tony Tetulla, Weird MC, 9ice, Ruggedman, Mode9, Goldie and many others have one way or another contributed to the iconic “AFROBEATS” genre. Despite years of inactivity by most of the aforementioned people, we cannot easily forget their impact in the Nigerian music industry. The only sad thing is that majority of Gen Z’s were not opportune to listen to them growing up.

Thanks to the insurge of new artistes almost every day in the music industry, there is now a greater recognition of the Afrobeats genre. Most notably, Wizkid, Davido, Olamide, Burna boy, Kizz Daniel, Tekno, Tiwa Savage, Adekunle Gold, Simi, Falz, Yemi Alade and don Jazzy have been frontmen and women of modern day Afrobeats.

Many a times, Nigerian engage in bitter social media arguments on who is better than who without acknowledging the fact that all these artistes have been excellent and their own unique ways. Once upon a time, we couldn’t boast of Billboard charts, now we have artistes entering the billboard as they like. If this isn’t worth harmonizing about, then I doubt what is.

From Wizkid’s “Ojuelegba” to Davido’s “Fall” to Burna Boy’s “Ye” and Olamide’s “Infinity” which birth a worldwide Tiktok trend, we cannot begin to truly appreciate the impact each of these artistes have had on our lives and Africa   as a continent. Everybody is doing well in their own specific field.

Now, it does not just stop there. These front men and women of the Nigerian industry have raised a few rising stars themselves. With the likes of Reekado Banks, Mayorkun, Fireboy, Joeboy, Omah Lay, Terri, Adekunle Gold, Simi, Bella Shmurda and a host of talented artistes in their own way, we can conclude that IF the front men and women retire, the music industry is still in good hands.
