When talent meets hard work and opportunity, all engines are in top gear for a very successful career. Call this our list of Next Rated Artistes but we have a list of music acts we believe will be exploding somewhere in the next 12 months. And if they don’t, something probably went wrong somewhere.

5 Artistes Set To Impress In The Next 12 Months1. Reekado Banks

One of 3 new Mavin Record acts and formerly known as Spicy has shown everyone exactly why he was signed by Don Jazzy and Mavin Records. When it comes to being blessed with a voice and an ability to mix it up for the market he’s the first guy that comes to mind right now (After Wizkid that is)… I see his career taking flight seriously in the next 12 months.

Fresh on the Mavin records roaster as well, Korede Bello is the emo, love singer with a guitar. The kind to serenade your lady with his sultry voice and take her home with him (Sorry guys). Arguably, he produced the best verse off recent Mavin Records hit Dorobucci. Initially there was the question of whether he might fit into the Nigerian Dance Hall scene and then Don Jazzy reminded us exactly why he and only he is Don Dorobucci with a recent song titled Cold Outside.


Mojeed, 5 Artistes Set To Impress In The Next 12 Months

3. Mojeed

Should I say this many is a Singing Rapper or a Rapping Singer… He’s a Drake with a Nigerian vibe to him. Initially one might think it was Aristocrats attempt and getting a Burnaboy successor but after you listen to a few of his songs or tracks he’s been featured on you will begin to realise this man is a ball of talents. He makes every beat seem comfortable and he always comes correct. With songs like Elevator already damaging speakers, you should checkout his effort on LeriQ’s Comment Tu Tappele featuring Dammy Krane, Burna Boy & Mojeed.

5 Artistes Set To Impress In The Next 12 Months, Runtown4. RunTown

Most of this mans work has pointed at a lot of HKN gang activity (Davido’s label/group). But he has been putting out lots of solo efforts in recent times and its obvious he’s ready to set out on a very impressive journey with his music. If he keeps going at this rate there is no stopping him really. Few hours ago he dropped a track titled Baby Answer produced by Shizzy where he sampled the Village head master track from the 80′s. Impressive stuff.

5. LAX

This one is a bit tricky, especially because one must admit both songs he’s come out with have had Wizkid on them, Infact his own first official song under Starboy titled Ginger sounded like it was a Wizkid song featuring LAX. So we might have a problem if he doesn’t break away from the clutches of his label boss. He needs to put out some material alone so we know if he’s really destined for greatness of just messing with us. Either ways we anticipate he’s up to some big things really soon.


This are all great acts coming out. If you think you have a better list of 5 Artistes Set To Impress In The Next 12 Months then please leave a comment and let us know.
