THE NEW SCHOOL LEAGUE
The entertainment scene can be linked to high school, where fresh students are admitted. Long gone are the days of “le le le le” because content has come to stay. A quick run down of the new school league.
These are the ones setting a new trend, a new pace and are re-branding the look of afro-pop.
Born Simisola Bolatito Ogunleye, this petite and beautiful woman is the true definition of small but mighty. Her voice is powerful and she is extremely talented.Whenever I see her, the images of Ariana Grande keeps coming to my head. Simi is going to be around for quite a while, this is owing to her ability to compose songs beautifully well as well as mix and master songs.
2) ADEKUNLE GOLD
It is safe to call him a perfect gentleman. Adekunle Kosoko has become a force to reckon with in the music industry. From photoshopping to music success, we can’t forget his cover of the British Boy band, one direction’s Story of my life so soon. His ability to serenade people of all age range is amazing, not to forget his cultural prowess. With the release of his album, GOLD, he has officially succeeded in becoming one of my favourite artistes of all times.
3) REEKADO BANKS
Signed to Mavin records, Solomon Ayoleyi aka Reekado Banks is one hell of a talented young man. The next rated artist has a beautiful voice and has moves for days. Some say he sounds just like Wizkid, we say he has talent and that’s all that matters. We at vexscheworld anticipate his yet to be released album, we hope it is #standard.
4) KOREDE BELLO
Ever since music sensation Korede Bello winked in the music video, Dorobucci, there has been trouble in “ladies island”. With the release of content filled songs, not forgetting his cuteness, nice voice and a strong management team, Akorede Bello is good to go.
5) KISS DANIEL
A new era is upon us, a rebirth has taken place. The acts of 2face plus words of 9ice have been given to one man…. Kiss Daniel. He proved the whole world who thought he was a one hit one down man wrong. His album, The new era, was warmly received by the audience and has gone on to top the charts.
The lyrical strength of Folarin Falana is not a joking sturvs. If you call him an actor, you’re not wrong,a comedian,rapper and presenter…ermm you’re still on the right track. His ability to diversify when necessary his amazing and would take him really far.
A rapper with sick flows=YCEE. After releasing Jagaban that spread like wild fire, he teamed up with Patoranking to give us condo and then gave us Omo Alhaji. You’ve got to give it up for the rookie of the year!
A man of few words, that’s how I love to describe him. Signed on to Davido’s record label, Dremo is one rapper to be on the look out for. His words are deep and his lyrics are tight, no wonder of all the covers of Desiigner’s Panda, his own cover stood out. He recently released a new single titled Ojere which has been enjoying massive airplay. Big ups Dremo Ojere !
His mother, Toyin Adewale has been killing it in the movie scene for years now. Mayorkun has decided to kill it in the music scene, talk about mother and son goals. His song “eleko” enjoyed and is still enjoying massive airplay, I won’t be surprised if he happens to be the rookie of the year in the next Headies.
10) MR EAZI
We travel down to West Africa, precise location…. Ghana. We present to you the humble Mr Eazi, we can’t get enough of his song, skintight. Beautiful content and cool flows. .
