Welcome to the offficial #MyGbeduList of hottest artistes in Nigeria during the first quarter of 2019.

Nigeria’s music industry in this first quarter of 2019 seems a bit cold right now because Baba Nla (Wizkid) is not in town and this is also making Davido feel lonely like there is no competition. But a few artistes are taking advantage of that most especially the new acts.
They are doing pretty well trying to make Nigerians who love the Afro-pop infusion stay on their feet all day. Both radio, Tv and entertainment platform are still having great songs to pull out.

This list is based on the street acceptance and frequent airplay of these artistes. When they pull out for concert you are satisfied and have no regrets attending.

Here is the list of top 10 hottest artistes in Nigeria Right Now Backed With facts.

  1. Zlatan

Zlatan is leading the #MyGbeduList of hottest artistes in Nigeria during this first quarter of 2019. This young star came up with a totally different vibe and he was able to force the force the street into every everyone and he was able to make his marks in the industry.

Every song in Nigeria and even far wide Africa has got the Zanku vibe which was a dance move this artist introduced. The Zanku god believes he came to take out the Shaku Shaku movement with his ‘zanku’ infusion.

He has featured in every big song in the country right now, songs like “Able God” – yeah! when you listen to that, you just can’t stop playing it with the sensational dance moves – Zanku. He also came out with great contents like “Killing Dem” where he featured Burna Boy and still have other songs making top music charts.

2. Burna Boy

Burna boy follows closely in second place in our #MyGbeduList of hottest artistes in Nigeria during this first quarter of 2019. Now this list should have seen Burna Boy on top but what I think put him in the second spot was the fact that both him and Davido have made it possible for Zlatan to shine and that is nice. Burna Boy is the current big thing in Nigeria music industry putting out great songs and award-winning vibe like his song “YE” that won the Soundcity MVP song of the year. and other great hits like “On the low” and “Gbona” which will get you on your feet anytime you hear him. With his recent song, “Dangote” shows Burna Boy is not ready to stop anytime soon.

3. Teni

The current female sensation, Teni Makanaki occupies the third spot in our #MyGbeduList of hottest artistes in Nigeria during this first quarter of 2019. If Teni don’t make the top of this list it will be so unfair, with the fact that she is one female act with the craziest vibes right now. Her career has seen her outshine her sister Niniola, who was doing so well until Teni hit the industry. Ever since the release of her hit single “Askamaya” she hasn’t given us any breathing space and she is constantly proving to us that she can stand the test of time. Dropping songs like “Case” “Wait” and her smashing vibe Uyo Meyo. She recently drop a Party banger she title “Gele” the song is currently making every chart in the country.

4. Davido

The DMW Boss Davido is on the top 5 of this list because of his impact and influence in the industry right now. He has been able to give a platform to other artistes and upcoming, we all know Davido is always fighting for a top spot but this time since his biggest rival Wizkid is on a break. His recent song “Bum Bum” which came with a dance challenge and the song is still currently on every chart.

5. 2Baba

The living legend and Hypertek boss seems to still be interested in holding his spot. He stole the number 5 spot in our #MyGbeduList of hottest artistes in Nigeria during the first quarter of 2019. 2Baba has showed no signs of slowing down, always giving us good vibe, since the “Gaga Shuffle” collaborations are still dropping, he hasn’t rested, dropping hit upon hit. We saw what he did with the “Amaka” collabo to his banging single “Oyi” and now the single with Larry Gaga is currently making the airwaves, the song titled “Iworiwo” which also comes with great visual has show 2Baba is still very relevant.

6. Olamide

Our #MyGbeduList of hottest artistes in Nigeria during the first quarter of 2019 will be incomplete without baddo on it. Without much write-up about the king of the street who knows when to hit the street with his strong vibes. His recent song “Woske” is a banger and if you check every countdown in the country right now you find the gbedu there. Jude (MI) Abaga, once called him the most hardworking artiste in the country in shot Olamide is a ‘vibe making machine’. Shout out to the YBNL Boss Badoo.

7. Kizz Daniel

The “Madu” crooner who has made us understand he deserves more in the music scene. Since the release of his Album, “No Bad Song” (NBS). The Flyboi boss has continued to make himself relevant dropping hit upon it. When we are still trying to recover from his collaboration “One Ticket” with Davido, he hits us with one of the most played songs in the country right now. “Madu” has got the vibe that puts you up and dancing.

8. Reekado Banks

The ‘Banks Music’ boss is no doubt another vibe machine, the artist knows how to run the game even to the point where we can say whatever he touch turn gold. The “Blessing” crooner who is vibe on Skiibii street banger “Sensima” giving the song a smooth flow. he set to drop the visual for his chart ranking single “Yawa” on the 4th of March. Banks have become the x-factor for various music joint, both on songs he composed and the owned by other artistes.

9. Skiibii

If we say for the fact that he has just one song that he can’t make this list we will be unfair. In what seems to be like one hit wonder, Skiibii song “Sensima” is basically one of the hottest song in Nigeria right now. the song has the ability to pull you off your feet.

10. Wizkid

The starboy wizkid finds himself in the last spot in our #MyGbeduList of hottest artistes in Nigeria during this first quarter of 2019. Now, this is the part where we can say this is funny, the question you will want to ask is how can an artist with a song be on this list. Being the hottest artist is not just by songs, because the list is talking about people, not songs. The Starboy entertainment boss though he was away, the name still causes stare when you hear Wizkid. Fever still find a way of making some top industry chart. So let him rest at the number 10 position.


This two artist should have made the list but the truth is there is no space for the maybe the next list will see them come up. Ycee and Timaya.
