The Reign of Boys Review
The Nigerian music industry has been taken by storm over the past few years by young men who are showing signs of rocking the entertainment establishment. These kids are ticking all the right boxes in lyrics, rhythm and performance. There is no sign of slowing down for them. Music stars in focus are:
With his single “ginger me”, Rema is becoming something like a colossus in the Nigerian music industry. His other songs like “dumebi”, and “beamer” are all getting all the airtime they deserve. His songs are a source of joy for many Nigerians and music lovers all over the world.
His single “nobody” with DJ Neptune and Mr Eazi is so popular that some kids sing it in their sleeps. “Baby” is another one for deep lovers who are almost always willing to impress their spouses. His other songs like “don’t call me back” with Mayorkun, “call on me” and “beginning” are all making waves on every music platform on the continent and all over the world.
No one would forget Cheque’s “zoom” for a very long time. Cheque has announced himself on the music scene and he does not seem like he would slow down anytime soon. His “satisfied” is an inspiration to many who crave more identify than image.
Has all the street credibility but still unsigned with any of the major labels in Nigeria or in diaspora. “Ma pariwo” is a good pick any day. “Joromi” is quite raw but most people in the ghetto love it that way. By and by, Zinoleesky is a musician not too far away from superstardom.
Is definitely the golden boy of them all. His name is on the lips of everyone who has good taste for good music. He has taken the Nigerian music industry by storm and has dished hits over and over again. “Jealous” is a song perfect for possessive partners who want their spouses all to themselves. “Scatter” is a typical party song just perfect for unrepentant clubbers. “You”, “feel”, “need you”, “like I do” and “vibration” are soul-lifting songs relevant for any mood. Fireboy is the darling of music lovers all over the world. Sometimes, his songs can be mistaken for Western songs even as his introduction of his mother’s tongue betrays him every now and then.
