This is the Naijaloaded Report Card For 2017
This is the Episode 1, Episode 2 drops in few days with more Artistes and their Rating for the year 2017.
You’ll all agree with us that 2017 has been a great musical year for the artists and the fans.
Here is a review and ratings of how your favorite artist has performed this year.
He has been consistent since the beginning of his music career and 2017 is unarguably his best year so far. Every single he has dropped this year has been a hit from IF, Fall, Pere, FIA to Like That.
He has been on a row with awards too, he won very notable awards like EMA, MOBO, TFA, etc. He welcomed a new daughter, his 30Billion Gang World Tour was a massive success, no artist has had a better year than Davido in the Naija Music Industry.
The murder allegation he had would have dented his whole year but he still came out strong. He was literally untouchable.
One very notable thing the StarBoy has done this year is trying to penetrate fully into the American market with his AfroBeat sound but he has had some highs and lows with that.
He dropped a very good EP “Sounds From The Other Side” this year after making waves with his Drake assisted single, Come Closer. Daddy Yo is another Wizzy jam that rocked this year for many months but Wizkid obviously concentrated more on the international movement and it’s slowly paying off.
Winning MOBO’s best international act over the likes of Jay Z and DJ Khaled is not child’s play but he didn’t have much impact back home as we would have expected him to but you can tell Nigerians are extremely proud of their StarBoy.
His rise to fame has been meteoric and he has definitely been a wonderful addition to the Nigeria Music Industry. His “Mama” single definitely rocked this year and Che Che has been topping charts since he dropped it.
Mayorkun knows his craft and he has sticked to his winning formula which is singing for the “Ladies”. Just sit back and notice Mama, Love You Tire, Yawa and Che Che’s lyrics, they are all for the ladies and if the ladies love you, you definitely can’t do no wrong. Davido found a gem.
Often being accused of laziness and under utilizing his more than enough talent, Wande Coal had a very decent outing this year.
Arguably the most talented vocalist in the country, Wande Coal lived up to the hype this year and dropped enough sweet tunes for his fans. Iskaba and Ballers topped the charts this year, especially Iskaba with the help of the Sesan directed crisp video.
He was featured on other notable singles like Zamo Zamo (by Phyno), El Chapo and It’s Not A Lie (by Dbanj), e.t.c. Truth is, on Wande Coal’s level, he can do better than 2 hit singles in a year but then, at least he put in work this year.
From an underdog to being the artist behind the hottest song in the country for months. Omo Better is on top of his game and there is no stopping him any time soon as he just dropped another troublesome end of the year tune titled “This Year”.
As we all know, the average lifespan of a hit single in Nigeria these days is just about 3 months or less but Small Doctor’s “Penalty” broke that limitation.
While other artists were literally playing their penalty into the throw-in line, Small Doctor kept scoring with his “Penalty” since the beginning of the year till this very moment, even De Gea can’t stop it.
If you are yet to see your favorite artist’s ratings, you’ll probably see it on the next review.
Artists like Olamide, Tekno, Runtown, Kiss Daniel, etc are still coming soon.
