The new generation of Nigerian music artists is just as talented and successful as its predecessors. Wizkid, Burna Boy and Davido have been known as the “Big 3” of their generation, and they have certainly made a lasting impression on the Nigerian music scene. But who are the “Big 3” of this new generation?
In the new wave of Nigerian music, three artists stand out as the most successful and influential: Rema, Fireboy DML and Omah Lay. Rema is the youngest of the three and has already achieved huge success with his Afro-pop, hip-hop and trap-infused sound. Fireboy DML is known for his unique blend of Afro-soul and hip-hop, and his songs have been streamed millions of times. Finally, Omah Lay has become an instant sensation with his eclectic mix of afro-beat, R&B and pop.
These three artists are the most acclaimed of this new generation, but there are many other acts that are making waves in the Nigerian music scene. From the alternative sounds of Tems to the soulful vibes of Mayorkun, the new generation of Nigerian music is filled with creativity and diversity.
It’s clear that the “Big 3” of this new generation of Nigerian music artists have already made their mark on the music industry, and their success is sure to continue for years to come. While Wizkid, Burna Boy and Davido remain the “Big 3” of the previous generation, this new generation has its own “Big 3” that are setting the scene for many more great acts to come.
