Back to back wins and achievements has prolonged Burna Boy ’s relevance and reign on the scene. While he has usurped Davido from the throne(who owned 2017), there has been a change in power and new development.
If we remove his corruption case, Naira Marley was probably at the same level with Burna Boy . Hits, controversies and an impressive project.
WizKid hasn’t been left out too. A collaboration with Beyoncé , a single( Joro) that went viral and dominated December, Starboy had a fairly good year too.
Davido isn’t left out too. His album might have turned out not to convince too many people but we can’t ignore the impact of Blow My Mind and Risky . There were hit songs.
So that brings us back to the question. These three artistries had an impressive year in the industry.
While we all know Burna Boy is the undisputed king,
Who should be Number Two and Number Three between Naira Marley, WizKid and Davido?
Number two should go to Naira Marley. No artistes had more hits than Naira Marley in the whole of the music industry last year. Back to back hits from Am I A Yahoo Boy , Opotoyi,
Soapy and then the genre defining sound, Mafo. The only edge Burna Boy has over Naira Marley was the achievements and global successes he recorded.
Coming in close at Number Three is definitely
WizKid . WizKid wouldn’t have been Number
three if not for his year ending SoundMan EP which dropped December. Before that the
Starboy has gone on a three month hiatus and delayed releasing music for months. His first single of 2019 only came in September when by that time, most artistes had dropped over three singles. Regardless, the impact of Joro as a hit single is there to see as it was one of those songs which had massive airplay in December.
So guys, do you agree with this?
