    It’s another throwback Thursday and Mp3bullet.ng goes down memory lane to highlight the Nigerian artists who faded from the limelight after their first hit songs

    It’s one thing to go to the top; it’s quite another to stay there. We see this a lot in the music industry, where many musicians have struggled to maintain their position at the top following the success of their initial hit songs.

    Not every musician has been fortunate enough to stay relevant in the industry for a long time, while some faded away as soon as their initial hit single dropped off the charts.

    So let’s take a look at those artists that faded from the limelight after their initial big single.



    Bigiano

    No party mix in 2008 was complete without Bigiano’s smash hit “Shayo.” The song was so well-liked that it became a street anthem. Many people assumed that Bigiano would stay at the top for a long time because of the song’s success, but this was not the case.

    Bigiano took a break from the spotlight during the height of his popularity, only to return a few years later with the song “Tonight.” However, the song failed to garner the same level of attention as his first hit song, and he has not been able to return to the top since.

    Weird MC

    When Weird MC’s name is mentioned, the monster smash song “Ijoya” immediately springs to mind.

    With the release of the song in 2006, she became a national sensation and imprinted her name in gold in the minds of music fans. She had released an album in 1996, but Ijoya was her first hit, and it was this song that first brought her to the attention of the public.

    Although Ijoya was a financial success, her album “After the Storm” fell short of expectations.

    After the triumph of Ijoya, she featured on a series of songs like “Bizzy Body” remix by P-square but none of her solo songs have managed to dominate airwaves since then.

    In October 2020, she was photographed in London during the EndSARS protest.

    Klever Jay

    Klever Jay shot to fame in 2008 with the release of his smash single “Koni Koni Love.” The song became well-known throughout the country, and he was happy of his popularity.

    The song was a watershed moment in his life and career, and it is still his most famous tune. Klever Jay, on the other hand, was unable to produce another hit song after that.

    The singer released numerous other songs after the popularity of “Koni Koni Love,” but none of them were able to keep him on the pedestal that “Koni Koni Love” had placed him on. Klever Jay quickly vanished from the scene, and nothing has been heard of him since.

    Paul Play Dairo

    Even if the younger generation does not listen to him, Paul Play Dairo is a living Afro music legend.

    The son of Nigerian bandleader, I.K. Dairo, who was dubbed the “Father of Juju Music” for his part in inventing that musical style, finally superseded West African high life as Nigeria’s national sound.

    Paul’s music is based on high life, like his father’s, but he also incorporates Gospel, R&B, and Soul into the mix. He knows how to serenade his audience properly, and he does so with the most basic of lyrics to deliver his message of love.

    His song titled, ‘Angel of my life’ was one of all-time popular classics, where he expressed all the emotions and feelings he has for the woman in his life, and how he would be without her. But he has faded from the scene.



    AY.com

    Many years ago, singer AY.com was ranked as one of the best in the music industry for his hit song, ‘Pass me your Love,’ featuring Terry G.

    After claims sparked a conflict between him and Terry G, the singer, whose true name is Ayoola Johnson, disappeared from the music industry.

    Ay.com went on to record other singles, including ‘Jombolo,’ ‘Komagbon,’ and ‘No Mind Dem‘ but none could replicate his success like “Pass Me Your Love.”

    In 2021, he released a remix of “Pass Me Your Love” which featured Peruzzi.
