One good thing about Nigeria’s music industry is that new artistes with amazing sound are given chance to stardom every year.
In most cases, we refer to those industry newly accepted artistes as breakout acts.
Last year, 2019 was the year talents like Rema, Fireboy, and Joeboy were discovered and accepted fully into the mainstream music market.
These guys were not just accepted, they came with different non-existing sounds and vibes and lots of music lovers embrace them.
Rema broke into the music industry with “Dumebi” alongside 3 solid EPs to win Headies Award last year.
His music journey since then has been experiencing tremendous growth as he is also the most internationally recognized artiste among his peers in the music industry.
With Olamide‘s influence and his hit single, “Jealous“, Fireboy captured the heart of many Nigerian music lovers with his superb songwriting skills and soothing vocals.
Releasing the “Laughter TearS And Goosebumps” album the year he got a big break into the music industry is an extraordinary achievement for the YBNL star.
The Empawa assisted young artiste didn’t get a massive breakout in 2019 by luck, Joeboy is no doubt a product of good vocal delivery and songwriting skills.
His song “Baby” got blown organically with little promotional effort because the song is actually a dope song with huge replay value.
2019 till present, Joeboy has not stopped growing with good musical contributions to the industry.
