Without further ado, here are our top five breakout artists for the year. Let us know who your favourite is.



What Lojay had to offer was a breath of fresh air with a particularly unique style that combines witty lyricism and catchy sounds.

His debut, an EP titled “LV N ATTN,” is a 5-track collaboration with badass producer, Sarz.

The EP has not one but three hits and is definitely one of 2021’s best projects. This alone establishes Lojay as a major breakthrough act of 2021.



The Jonzing World act has released two EPs already this year, one of which houses one of the biggest hits of the year, “Bounce.”

Ruger has that interesting vibe that has received the appraisal and has been compared to that of Rema and Omah Lay.

After two solid projects, you’d expect that this guy would sweep some awards this season. We’ll see about that anyway.


Ayra Starr


Ayra Starr is Don Jazzy‘s new girl that was unveiled earlier this year and introduced with an eponymous EP that had the hit single, “.”

Not long after, she followed up with her debut album, a very solid project that has gotten generally positive reviews. The album’s first single, “Bloody Samaritan” is unequivocally one of the hottest songs this year.




Born Adindu Victor but professionally known as is a Nigerian Afro-Pop singer and songwriter who rose to fame for his hit song “Big Thug Boys”.

The professional artist first became interested in music at a very young age, which is not surprising given that everyone in his family enjoys music.

Although we are unsure of AV’s exact net worth at this time and don’t want to estimate it incorrectly, judging from the notoriety he is currently enjoying due to the success of his career, the singer is undoubtedly worth millions.



Fave, like Jaywillz, also started gaining mainstream attention after she was featured on Olamide’s album, about six months ago.

Her track, “Baby Riddim” has become quite the viral tune too, and the emPawa artist is starting to become a sensation. It’s really only a matter of time given how good she is.
