Battle of Hits/Verzuz is basically a battle between two artists in the same genre who pits ten of their best songs against each other.
It all began with American producers, Timbaland and Swizz Beatz having producers clash and from there it spiraled into an entertainment program that would see artists like Nelly, Snoop Dogg, DMX, Brandy, Monica, Teddy Riley, Babyface participating in the event.
In Nigeria, Artists and Producers weren’t left out of this. Sarz and Shizzi battled each other resulting in reactions from Social Media. This also led to more battle of hits like Mastercraft VS Pheelz, Rexxie VS Kel P, M.I Abaga VS Naeto C.
While the Battle of Hits wave has died down a bit in Nigeria, Mp3bullet.ng have put together a list of Artists we would love to see participate in this.
Wizkid vs Davido
This battle should it happen will shut the Internet. For years, Wizkid and Davido have been compared so many times that one can count.
At some point, these two artists engaged in a battle of words before reconciling. While much isn’t certain about the relationship between them, a battle of hits seems like a far fetched dream. But one can dream, right?
