The King Of Commercial Music: Not Wizkid, Olamide or Davido

Commercial music in this scenario is a song that nabs you to the dance floor. In Nigeria, when you talk about commercial music then we are talking about club bangers.

Who is really that artist that can own the party scene with his/her music, that artist you always want to listen to because at the end of the day the dance floor is yours. Feature these artists if you need the spotlight on you, it’s left to you to follow up with a banger.


If you can create a smash single talking about Love, Sex, Church, Cities, Politics all In Your Bed then you can make anything hot. Some might not believe this but Wizkid fell a tiny bit, he got too comfortable, carried away with his current achievements, maybe some twitter beef or he just isn’t trying anymore. 2-3 years back, he might have been #1, right now he is ranked #5 and even though there is nobody else fit to take this spot from him right now, i am not sure it would remain the same in another 3 years. Lets hope he won’t decline any further for the sake of good music.

4.Don Jazzy
He is a magician! The revolutionized Don Jazzy is a beast, he wants to prove a statement and whether you like it or not he’s one of the best in the game when it comes to producing or features. Lets talk about the post-mohits era aka the Mavin Dynasty going on, you have a Mavin record on your playlist right now if you’re following the music industry. Is it God Win, Katapot, Awww, Looku Looku or My Darlin?

He’s a legend!


I honestly do not know if Olamide is at the peak of his career yet, feels like he’s just heading towards that direction. Olamide’s style of rap takes you straight to the dance floor, being able to be a rapper and still make money in Nigeria is a big deal. If we are being honest with ourselves, Goons Mi is one of the hardest if not the hardest rap song out of Nigeria in the last 2-3 years.

2. Davido
OBO Baddest!!
Put Davido on anything he comes through for you. Some folks might want to argue this with me, but the Lil Kesh – Shoki (Remix) featuring Davido & Olamide blew the song out of proportion; let’s talk about the Gallardo Remix featuring Davido also. When he first started, there were doubts about him and what he had to offer but as of right now, he has made almost everyone a believer. You’d Hardly hear a Davido song right now and not put your dancing shoes on.

 This man mastered the industry like no one else. He stormed the game 2007 with his debut album True Story featuring hits from top to bottom. Since 2007 Timaya has released an album every year and I’m sure we’ll be getting another album later this year. Timaya is the King of Commercial music, he does this music stuff effortlessly. Timaya introduced few artists like Patoranking, Runtown, Wrecoba, WizzyPro to the spotlight, (8) years in the game and still topping chats, getting massive spins like a new artist.

Respect this man!
