Alhaji Tekno is one act that TripleMG should take
serious pride in. I mean, he’s such an all-round
artiste with an order of versatility that should trip
you. Not only does he sing, he produces too… and
he’s darn good at both!
If anything, 2015 would bask knowing that it was
her year that chart-topping songs like Duro and
Wash were dropped. Also, he produced Ice Prince
Zamani’s Boss and was featured with Bracket on
Panya , which he also produced as well as a
couple other songs that have an effective
commercial appeal. I’ll recommend that
TripleMG does a whole lot more especially in
honing musical prowess just to ensure that Tekno
is the first-grade star he’s destined to be.

Bad guy Reeky almost makes it look like his mates
are in a deep slumber with how hard he grinds. I
mean, this guy put out three hot tracks back-to-
back sometime in July that left us still anticipating
more. This guy totally kills it everytime he’s put
on a verse or hook and it’s why he has continued
to pull features with some of the industry’s
highbrow artistes. A big pay off this year would
be when telecommunications giant, Glo signed
him on as an ambassador.
Reekado was also featured on our platform for
#TXAOTM in August and also got a category
nomination at this year’s tooXclusive Awards.

I don’t think anyone has enjoyed the 2015 any
better than Falz has. Not only did his Marry Me
jam roll over into the new year, he set a new
record in his social media trending game with the
release of ‘Ello Bae. Several records and features
after, the jolly ride took a monumental stop last
month when he released his sophomore disc titled
“ Stories That Touch“ . It would be unfair to not
mention materials like Karishika , Celebrity
Girlfriend and Simi’s Jamb Question Remix which
showed alternative sides to his very creative yet
comical person.
Falz was our TXAOTM for March and even runs a
line of custom-designed tees.

Turn up for ma gurl , Shay… whoop! Away from
her badass album cover, I think she should have
titled her debut disc, The Year of Shay. As in, 2015
held so much in store for the sultry music diva.
This was the year that she bagged three major
endorsements , sealed an international record
deal , and even put out her long-awaited debut,
“ Seyi or Shay “ . She was also featured on the
performers line-up for Star Music Trek where she
burned out the stage with electrifying
Her latest single, Right Now has bagged multiple
nominations on various award platforms
(including ours) and her other efforts still have
that frenzy effect on our ears. Long live Shay!

5. CDQ
Like play, hollering “woss” out loud has become
the new in-thing for feel good buddies on the
streets. And it’s all thanks to CDQ, who has
become a significant one in the many barons from
the West hood. The intriguing thing about CDQ
would be how much he’s played his consistency
by slaying tracks and nailing features, which he
also slays to reckless reverie. Is it Masterkraft’s
Indomie Remix? Or perhaps Jahbless’ 69 Missed
Calls ? How could one forget his personal works
like Salaro or Talosobee ? All from this year alone
Of which, he recently put out a Wizkid-featured
song and we all know what it is when the lungu
crooner endorses your sound. Look, CDQ is
advancing fast to becoming the next king of the
streets. Forgerrith!

2014 was a good year for Runtown as he made his
presence known in the music scene with the
release of his Gallardo single in 2014 which
featured Davido. He followed that with 4 singles
and has shown improvement with each new single
dropped, which attests that he can hold his own
down on the music charts for years to come. His
features this year have been great, complimenting
other artistes’ songs well and sometimes making
them better, now that’s growth.
Runtown released his debut album “ Ghetto
University ” last month, I suggest you go get it. It is
easily one of the best albums in the country right

7. B-RED
Another HKN artist that’s not Davido is finally
finding his way on the charts. B-Red has stepped
up this year with songs that people will bob their
head to for months to come. Aye Po is one song
that shows B-Red’s growth as an artist, this is a
meaningful track which was followed up with
Cucumber .
Although most of his songs have featured other
artists, B-Red has shown that he knows what it
takes to get the attention of Nigerian music lovers.
That feat alone, is too much of a plus for him.

8. BOJ
I always considered BOJ to be the most talented in
the then DRB Lasgidi group. He has been a force
in the music industry since he went solo and did
not slow down this year as he continued to drop
good tunes consistently. BOJ has a unique voice
and has taken advantage of that to create a
different sound in the music industry. This is
something the fans have been craving as they are
tired of listening to similar afrobeat styles.
BOJ knows what it takes to be different and this
has helped his growth in the industry and an
example of this, is his latest single Phantom which
features Runtown.

9. L.A.X
I’ve been a fan of L.A.X since his days with
Flyboiz, Busy Body is still a tune by the way. He
continues to grow as an artist and I know a few
people were skeptical about how well he’ll merge
with Wizkid after her was signed to Starboy, but
each single he has dropped so far has earned a lot
of airplays. This year, he’s had more music
material released while earning himself features
with diasporan act, Tyson and producer, Biano
Summers . At present, his recent single Fine Boy
with Olamide has been known to cause ripples at
various after work chill-spots all over town.
In the same vein, his latest club single Open And
Close is gradually picking up pace, while Caro and
Ginger still remain the new school afro music
classics for the dance floor.

I came across the duo Nnamdi and Frank
Amajuoyi when they released their debut track
Slowly – a song Patoranking loved so much that
even he had to get on the remix. I especially dig
the fact that these guys are giving a different
dynamic to the music industry and they showed
everyone they’re not a one-hit wonder by
releasing two good tracks this year, my favorite
being the E-Kelly produced Shakara .
BoyBreed have shown that they know what it
takes to stay relevant in the industry, and as long
as the BoyBreed/E-Kelly production collabo
doesn’t change, the sky’s the limit for these guys.
