It’s almost midyear and it looks like our A-list artistes agreed together to give the upcoming acts a chance to shine.
Surprisingly, our very own Starboy Wizzy has not released any new material since “Fever” dropped, Davido‘s released only “Bum Bum” featuring the rave of the moment ‘Zlatan‘ Burna Boy released Dangote, Tiwa Savage also decided to lay low like the president of the stew nation.
While the chase for international recognition or expansion of fan base may be the reason for their subtle presence on the music scene, Olamide has not held anything back in showing us his dexterity.
In a space of 5 months, he has released four tracks but unfortunately, these songs have failed to hit the spot a serial hitmaker like Olamide is known for.
While his recent single Oil & Gas is looking like a potential hit, the buzz around it seems to be dying down, probably caused the song was strictly being monetized by Olamide’s camp.
But while these A-listers (Big Artistes) seems to be on vacation, some upcoming acts are taking the shine and everyone is falling in love with them.
T-classic is making serious waves with “Nobody Fine Pass You“, FireboyDML“Jealous” is topping charts across the country and Mavin Records Rema “Dumebi” is on everyone’s lips and it’s doing numbers as well.
His new EP has garnered over a million streams which of course is rare for a relatively new artiste and “Dumebi” has been tipped by music pundits as song of the year already but only time would tell.
Checking numerous charts across the country, you would find at least 5 songs by upcoming acts and it looks like the monopoly enjoyed by our Top acts is gradually ending.
Looking at it from a positive angle,this would make the A-list artistes known for their notoriety in flogging the same pattern to step up their game so as not to get lost in the new wave.
It’s the middle of the year and upcoming acts are already owning it, hopefully it continues throughout the year so we can get to listen to fresh, new breed of artistes bringing their A-game to the industry.
