Some Nigerian Artists are now giving Comedians a run for their month in the funniest person in the Entertainment Industry.
Mp3bullet.ng presents Top Funniest Artists in the Nigerian Music Industry.
However, for a few of these Nigerian musicians, entertainment does not end with music; they go above and beyond to become full-fledged entertainers, dazzling us with their sense of humour through funny skits and videos to promote their work or simply express their views.
Some Nigerian artists realize that humour is quintessential in promoting their brand and the framework of their career. They understand that they have to infuse the elements of comedy into their music as it is a dangerous business to be lethargic.
There are artists who are naturally hilarious, meanwhile, there are some who simply engage in cheesy activities but still get the love from their fans. It is important to note that this list entails mainstream Nigerian acts and not social media tweeners who release jocular songs.

When Falz first entered the industry, he brought with him a humorous accent that is a mix of H-factor and terrible English, and he quickly gained a following of admirers who imitated him.
In case you didn’t know, Falz previously started a career media comic between 2014 and 2015. Following the popular success of his sophomore album, Stories That Touch, in 2016, he retreated from skit production.
The multi-talented entertainer is the first Nigerian artist to have won an AMVCA award for his contribution to a film.
Although he is not the first Nigerian singer to participate in a Nollywood film, the versatile renaissance man has managed to fascinate his audience with his talent, swagger, and charisma.

The only Nigerian musician with many aliases. Teniola Apata’s aliases include Teni the Entertainer, Teni Makanaki, Oba Orin, the One Take Queen, and others.
Teni is the epitome of joy, happiness, and enjoyment. She is a happy-go-lucky person, and her outgoing demeanour has helped her gain a devoted following around the world.
Teni coverts her sense of humour into sales and in December of 2019, she hit Third Mainland Bridge to do one-on-one marketing of her concert, dressed up in a Santa. It’s difficult to find a female performer as relaxed and unique as the ‘Uyo Meyo’ crooner.
Her elementary outlook on life is reflected in her childlike songs. Her music videos, such as ‘Case‘ and ‘Billionaire,’ have a comedic element to them as well as an optimistic attitude. It’s impossible to dislike her since she is beautiful in her own flesh.
Who else spotted Teni on Third Mainland Bridge? 😄 Hope you got the message too.

Mayorkun used the same satirical humour in one of his biggest hits, Geng, which contains the phrase “one Hennessy twenty man gang.”
