Nigerian producers who impacted the sounds of Afrobeat in 2022.
As the year rounds off, Mp3bullet.ng for its first ‘Industry picks for the year’ compiles a list of the Hottest Nigerian Producers of 2022.
The Nigerian music scene is fortunate to have a number of excellent producers, some of whom are paired with superstars whose songs they imaginatively develop and release in the form of chart-topping hits.
These producers are somewhat akin to unsung heroes because without them there would be no hits, and in 2022 they helped elevate Afrobeats by selecting distinctive sounds that were heard beyond of Nigeria.
Mp3bullet.ng chooses the top 10 producers of 2022 after taking into account their credits throughout all catalogues as well as the effects of their work, particularly in Nigeria.
