Rate this post

In the Nigerian music industry, 2007 was a watershed moment. Artists like Asa, Timaya, and 9ice released their debut albums to critical and commercial acclaim during this time period.

The largest label in Nigeria at the time, Mo Hits, released a first-of-its-kind label compilation CD.

Don Jazzy, the country’s most successful producer at the time, handled the majority of the production on the project, which generated singles including “Booty call,” “Move your body,” and “Close to you.”

In the 15 years since 2007, a lot has happened in the industry. Nigerian music has advanced in leaps and bounds to the point where it can now be regarded as global mainstream music.

Even if this is magnificent, no one should dismiss the amount of work that went into bringing the picture to this point.

Artists, labels, and other business stakeholders put in a lot of work in the early and mid-2000s, and it’s undeniably paying off now for the scene.

These were some of the songs that will be 15 years old in 2022.

Naeto C has been around for quite a long time before “Kini Big Deal” was released. Before the publication of “Kini Big Deal,” Naeto C had been around for a while.

The above, on the other hand, was the song that changed his life and changed the trajectory of Nigerian commercial rap music forever. Earlier to this, rappers of the time were more focused on the technical aspects of rhyming, which resulted in their songs having a low commercial value. Naeto proved that you can be a superb rapper while also writing a fantastic rap-pop tune.
