Best Nigerian Musicians? by Seun(m): 3:04am On May 09, 2005
We already know about 2face Idibia (the artiste behing 'You Are My African Queen'). We know that the boy is good!

What about the others? Who else would you classify among the 'best Nigerian Musicians'?

[Some of our local musicians like to [I]rap[/I]. Now, pidgin rapping can be very entertaining, like "Monica". However, when Nigerian artistes try to deliver 'americanized' raps, I say to myself "yuck!" I mean, sometimes you can still hear the yoruba accent under the americanized performance!]

Anyway, let me show you my best Nigerian musicians list: Lagbaja, Styl-plus (the 'Olufunmi' boys), Kush Music, and ... well, that's it!

What about you?
Re: Best Nigerian Musicians? by delarontus(f): 2:21pm On May 09, 2005
What i like might not be the best but here they are: Styl-Plus, Tuface, Asha, Gizmo, Mode 9, Lagbaja, P-square, Faze, em .... can't recall the other names but there are more!

In addition to the original question "who are your best Nigerian musicians":
[list][li]What do you like about your best musician(s) or band?[/li][li]Where do you go to buy their music in Nigeria?[/li][/list]
Re: Best Nigerian Musicians? by gina34(f): 7:18pm On May 09, 2005

Re: Best Nigerian Musicians? by mamba(m): 8:47pm On May 09, 2005
My best artistes are Musiliu Haruna Ishola and Pasuma. I also like Maintain, Ruggedman and Mr. Cool.

I buy their music whenever I'm in a [I]go-slow[/I] [[I]editor: Traffic Congestion[/I]].
Re: Best Nigerian Musicians? by Ra(f): 11:23pm On May 09, 2005
I simply adore Lagbaja's music. I like a few others as well, but whenever I'm chanced or at home, the only musician whose CDs I hunt for is Lagbaja. I live in Ibadan and get his CDs from some place in Oketedo.

What I like about him and his band; the ingenuity, his creativity and pure entertainment.

Kunle Ajayi follows very closely after.
Re: Best Nigerian Musicians? by Allenpowered(m): 7:57am On May 19, 2005

Re: Best Nigerian Musicians? by tosemi(f): 12:30pm On May 19, 2005
Nigerian Musicians are really coming out and they are trying there best in the music industry. Styl-plus, Sunny Neji, 2face idibia, Lagbaja,keffe, paul dairo and kunle ajayi these are my favorite and my best.
They are simply creative and i get to buy my cassette/cds anywhere i come across there
Re: Best Nigerian Musicians? by AMENZEIGBINEDION(f): 7:23pm On May 19, 2005
I think that Nigerian music is being more recognized and the artist themselves are being more respected. Gone are the days where one says that music is not a job. Music is a talent and i gift,and i respect anyone who does not put it to waste.
Style-plus are just the bomb!!!! i mean they are the Nigerian boys to men, or even 112.
If i go on i will be here all day.
2face is a cool guy and came with his own individual flavour " You are my African queen" amongst others, his songs speak for themselves. There are some songs that you just have to sing along with or you can't help but want to move your body.
There are so many more artists to mention, but all i can say is keep working at it because whatever those artists are doing is certainly working. Have you not noticed that in every magazine there is something about music? We need to keep supporting our people , coz if we don't who will. Set the path others will follow.
Re: Best Nigerian Musicians? by mary(f): 2:35pm On May 20, 2005

Re: Best Nigerian Musicians? by tayotina(f): 3:10pm On May 20, 2005
Let me see ..... hmm, I think... well, I don't know.  I would think of something by Monday. Meanwhile, I have a feeling I like Lagbaja's ....... wink Yeah, I just remembered. I love styl-plus and Ijo Fuji - Adewale Ayuba.
Re: Best Nigerian Musicians? by bolasho(m): 8:58am On May 26, 2005

Re: Best Nigerian Musicians? by dablessed(f): 6:28pm On May 29, 2005
I love the Kush group, as a matter of fact, i stumbled on this forum while i was searching for their website. The Olufunmi boys are also good - what are they called and what's the name of the album? Any-one coming to London anytime soon? I'd appreciate a CD of theirs - I'll pay, no probs. It goes for about 15 quid here in London and thats outrageously expensive compared to the Naira price.
Re: Best Nigerian Musicians? by bunmijoseph(f): 9:31pm On May 31, 2005

Re: Best Nigerian Musicians? by IAH(f): 2:38pm On Jun 22, 2005
Styl Plus, 2face, Lagbaja, Sunny Nneji, a few gospel acts and the rest is NOISE.
The one I hate most is that Eedris Abdulakreem.
Re: Best Nigerian Musicians? by pkrix(m): 8:57pm On Jun 22, 2005
For me. I am yet to call any Nigeria musician best. I do not have a best musician in Nigeria but I sure have a worst musician and that is Geneive Nnaji.

Re: Best Nigerian Musicians? by layi(m): 4:22pm On Aug 14, 2005
Man.. Tuface is blowing o!. i cant believe what i saw a few days ago. His face on Billboards all over town (LAG and environs). Methinks he's the biggest Nigerian star so far. I dont really feel His songs anyway but i love success. But i'ld prefer other african artists like "Keisha (from Kenya..he reminds me of Joe) and Mandoza (from S/A). They'r HOT.

Anyway "Tuface na ur time o!"
Re: Best Nigerian Musicians? by nddy(m): 5:50pm On Aug 14, 2005
