As the year winds down to a very eventful and activity-filled close, it is only normal for one to assess and evaluate occurrences that have ultimately led to this point. Particularly, we have carefully examined the progress of our industry acts and are therefore presenting ten of them who we adjudged to be the most improved, this 2015 year.
We acknowledge the fact that there are loads of artistes who have experienced a career switch up this year, but as always is the case, there’s only little that ten spots can contain. Regardless, please comment any other names you think are deserving of a mention.
While I’m certain that you will enjoy reading this piece, I also want to beg, PLEASE no form of pettiness or verbal bashing in the comments section oh. I will hunt you down! 😉
And major s/o to @Tobi_tx for inspiring this piece and still pitching in the times I hit a brick wall. I respect you boss!
Alhaji Tekno is one act that TripleMG should take serious pride in. I mean, he’s such an all-round artiste with an order of versatility that should trip you. Not only does he sing, he produces too… and he’s darn good at both!
If anything, 2015 would bask knowing that it was her year that chart-topping songs like Duro and Wash were dropped. Also, he produced Ice Prince Zamani’s Boss and was featured with Bracket on Panya, which he also produced as well as a couple other songs that have an effective commercial appeal. I’ll recommend that TripleMG does a whole lot more especially in honing musical prowess just to ensure that Tekno is the first-grade star he’s destined to be.
2. REEKADO BANKS
Bad guy Reeky almost makes it look like his mates are in a deep slumber with how hard he grinds. I mean, this guy put out three hot tracks back-to-back sometime in July that left us still anticipating more. This guy totally kills it everytime he’s put on a verse or hook and it’s why he has continued to pull features with some of the industry’s highbrow artistes. A big pay off this year would be when telecommunications giant, Glo signed him on as an ambassador.
Reekado was also featured on our platform for #TXAOTM in August and also got a category nomination at this year’s tooXclusive Awards.
I don’t think anyone has enjoyed the 2015 any better than Falz has. Not only did his Marry Me jam roll over into the new year, he set a new record in his social media trending game with the release of ‘Ello Bae. Several records and features after, the jolly ride took a monumental stop last month when he released his sophomore disc titled “Stories That Touch“. It would be unfair to not mention materials like Karishika, Celebrity Girlfriend and Simi’s Jamb Question Remix which showed alternative sides to his very creative yet comical person.
Falz was our TXAOTM for March and even runs a line of custom-designed tees.
4. SEYI SHAY
Turn up for ma gurl, Shay… whoop! Away from her badass album cover, I think she should have titled her debut disc, The Year of Shay. As in, 2015 held so much in store for the sultry music diva. This was the year that she bagged three major endorsements, sealed an international record deal, and even put out her long-awaited debut, “Seyi or Shay“. She was also featured on the performers line-up for Star Music Trek where she burned out the stage with electrifying performances.
Her latest single, Right Now has bagged multiple nominations on various award platforms (including ours) and her other efforts still have that frenzy effect on our ears. Long live Shay!
Like play, hollering “woss” out loud has become the new in-thing for feel good buddies on the streets. And it’s all thanks to CDQ, who has become a significant one in the many barons from the West hood. The intriguing thing about CDQ would be how much he’s played his consistency by slaying tracks and nailing features, which he also slays to reckless reverie. Is it Masterkraft’s Indomie Remix……..continue reading
