These are the top 10 Nigerian artists who need to make a great comeback.
The Nigerian music industry is demanding but rewarding and here are the top 10 Nigerian artists who need to make a great comeback.
In 2018 we experienced what many see as the “Major Comeback” in the Nigerian music industry after Portharcourt’s first son “Duncan Mighty” sprouts back into the limelight and made an amazing year run.
2021 failed to see the comeback of any artists rather it was filled with newbies taking over.
Below are the top 10 artists that we think might make a comeback in the Nigerian music industry anytime soon.
Top 10 Nigerian artists who need to make a great comeback
With songs like “Shole“, Perfect Gentleman” and his solid debut album “The Journey” which was the best album in 2014 Sean Tizzle was no doubt a hitmaker in his days.
His buzz dropped immensely in 2016 and since then he has struggled to make a comeback even though he has released songs like Lotto, Contagious, Gyal Dem but none of those songs made wave maybe as a result of bad management or the song doesn’t meet up the standard he started with.
With good management, Sean Tizzle can make that comeback in 2020 because we are back in the era of good music.
Cynthia Morgan (Madrina)
Take it or leave it, pop singer, Cynthia Morgan, has done herself a world of good in terms of staying true to the Dancehall and Reggae style of music.
Known for her controversial posts, song covers, and reactions, Cynthia also takes time out to reply to critics and trolls and that’s one of the things that can keep you buzzing every day as an artist.
The fact that she is now back on good terms with her real self is a good sign that she can still make it back to the limelight.
Lil Kesh used to be a hot cake under YBNL a few years back.
Olamide and YBNL as a whole gave him just the right amount of push. Lil Kesh lacks good content, promotion, and awareness.
Most people don’t even get to know when his songs drop anymore. He’s making good music no doubt, but what is good music without the right amount of promotion.
He’s suffering from all he enjoyed while he was in YBNL. No doubt, Lil Kesh has a lazy and uncreative team who doesn’t have his love at heart.
Ever since he left YBNL in 2016, the YAGI boss has lost the sauce and struggling to come back ever since then
Iyanya redefined the tempo of Nigerian music with the fast-paced smash hit, ‘Kukere’. However, behind the scene was a little-known producer at the time, D’Tunes.
After leaving the MMG in October 2016 and announcing on Instagram that he signed a record deal with Mavin Records including a management deal with Temple Management Company.
The ‘Kukere’ master seemed to have taken a break. off music.
The ‘Oleku’ rapper is a ‘big’ artist and he has done enough, with three albums and a long list of his singles shining in our recent pop history.
Although Ice Prince might have lost the relevancy. His name is still a household with value and fame.
With a sneak peek of Hip-Hop trying to make a comeback in 2019, if it happens, definitely Ice Prince is coming with it.
We all know from the time that Ice Prince didn’t grow this big in the industry through just raps but his ability to sing and rap as well.
It is no longer news that Raggae Blues singer Harrysong has fallen out with his record label 5 Star Music over what many say was due to irreconcilable differences occasioned by lack of trust.
Since fallen out from the label, Harrysong has not been the same again, prior to his days in the label where he dishes out bangers year in year out.
Umoren AKanimoh Felix (Oscar Jnr) Known as Sugarboy, is a Nigerian reggae-dancehall, Afrobeat singer, and songwriter.
At a point, he was the rave of the moment alongside Kizz Daniel in G worldwide record label, After the successful launch of his debut album “BELIEVE” at the Oriental Hotel.

After quitting his label, he has disappeared from the music scene.
Reekado Banks is not really getting it right lately. The super talented singer who won our heart under Mavin Records is already toying with it.
He lacks promotion basically. He is a very good singer no doubt. I mean you can’t be a record label owner and a singer at the same time. You need lots of concentration on the Label, as well as focus on your output.
He owns Banks Music but that Don Jazzy factor is still missing in his career and I think that is what has really helped him grow over the years.
We can only pray for him to get back to his winning ways, is not easy.
With 4 albums to his name already and hit tracks like “Skibo”, “Wait” “Omotena” “Nwa baby” and so much more Solidstar is one artiste we miss so much because of his uniqueness.
He recently released songs like Wicked, No Tension, and Yarinya but those songs made zero waves and he looks like Solidstar stopped singing.
This super talented guy that blessed us with jams some years back is very confused right now.
We honestly do not know where to place Koker. He stikes are like an unserious artist, who lacks a sense of direction. This makes it difficult to know where he stands.
This minute he’s shouting Choc City, the next he won’t stop saying Coke Boy. He really needs to stop confusing the audience.
I guess his lack of direction is why he is nowhere to be found.
If he can put himself together, get back to work with the right set of people around me, he will definitely win again as his talent is beyond just that of some random artiste.
