10 Nigerian Artistes Who Have Gone International

The horizon of Nigerian music is broadening, beyond the shores of Africa to the field of global music. Nigerian music is like the new gold causing people of the west to rush to the market. Good for us because with the growing rave around our music; our artistes move steps closer to that very elusive Grammy award. Here’s a list of 10 already internationally recognized Nigerian artistes:

1. Wizkid

He might not be the pioneer of this movement but no doubt when you think ‘Africa to the world,’ his name first comes to mind. The sold out concerts and record breaking collaborations speak for him. Wizkid is no doubt Africa’s biggest music export of this age.

2. MC Galaxy

The vibe to his songs have somehow transcended across borders. His biggest hit yet ‘Sekem’ received warm reception across many nations. The song was also recognized by the highly sophisticated Hollywood after it was used as a soundtrack on the Disney movie ‘Queen of Katwe’.

3. Asa

From the onset, it was obvious Asa’s music could not be contained within the boundaries of her home-country; Nigeria. The indie soul and fusion artiste has a way of using her music to connect with people of diverse origins and her outings can confirm that.

4. Ycee

There is an evolution in the Afrobeat scene and we can witness it in form of the ‘Pan-African sound’ that the new cats are exporting to the world audience. Part of this movement is the song ‘Juice’ which is enjoying massive acceptance from many of the Westerners.

5. Mr Eazi

Thanks to Mr. Eazi, the Banku music is now steps closer to global dominance. The singer has become a favorite in many parts of the United Kingdom and America. Mr. Eazi’s Detty world tour has recorded sold out shows in several western countries.

6. Tiwa Savage

Tiwa comes highly recommended and in hot demand by her upper west side colleagues. Her pan-African music style has made her the topic of discuss in circles around the likes of Jay Z, Brandy, Fat Joe and Chris Martin. Moreover, her working stint with Mary J Blige, Whitney Houston, Kelly Clarkson and Andrea Bocelli had her adequately equipped for this takeover.

7. Davido

The 30 billion gang leader is one spectacular African artiste breaking boundaries on the international front, and it dates far back to the days of his come up. His song ‘Skelewu’ was the sound that launched him on the global front, even causing a trend. Today, icons like Ronaldo, Taraji P. Henson and R.Kelly have endorsed him.
