Nigeria's new school artists
By Fehinti Ojelabi
The music scene is buzzing and is full of millennials in Lagos. It is one industry that constantly has new acts and talent that have every intention to change the game. They are chasing their dreams and making amazing sounds by embracing who they are.
Ozzy B: This versatile artist released his first mixtape at 18 and followed his passion ever since. From collaborations to singles his fresh sound always revives the aura in any room. He was recently premiered in a Japanese magazine “Wired” for his track Jungle Fever featuring Odunsi and Genio Bambino.
Poe: The Nigerian rapper and recording artist also known as “Ladipoe” who is signed to Mavin records uses a grime flow and combines it with pidgin in his rap. His technical skill and witty puns are beyond our imagination. We love Man already and his refix of Did you see.
Tomi Thomas: This soulful musician who originally was part of the L.O.S group but he performs live at lounges and delivers impeccably. The multi-talented artist infuses culture, vibrant sounds and flavors into his music especially when he performs live with his band.
Idris King: The 90’s baby visionary makes music that transcends through time. He occasionally holds 90’s baby sound off event giving other artists a chance to showcase their talents. Although he is half-French, it all started in London with the 90’s baby podcast. He makes smooth rap and sings in French and English. His tracks usually show that he is has quite a grip with his words and flow.
Nonso Amadi : The 21 year old artist who released tonight has taken over the music scene overnight all the way from Canada. His melody is quite unique and extremely pleasant to the ears. We have favorite tracks like Radio, early and tonight.
Prettyboy D-O: The Afro-trap artist always has dope visuals and concepts for his videos. Not only does his hoarse voice add to his rugged rap but it compliments it. He tracks are very catchy and they usually have sexual innuendos and subtle lyrics. Some of our favorite tracks are Bance, Karashika and Tinko-ko.
