Nigerian artistes who moved from grass to grace in 2014
2014 is indeed a wonderful year for some artists, we saw the rising and falling of many, Topping the List is non other than.
1. ORITSE FEMI aka MUSICAL TaLIBAN
The Double Wahala crooner who moved recently from Ajegunle to his Lekki home, He is also a proud owner of Range Rover evoque 2014 was indeed a wonderful year for the young man with a lot of endorsement deals, awards and shows. His is a true definition of the topic Grass To Grace!
Patrick Okorie popularly known as patoranking who is currently the REVELATION OF THE YEAR at the just concluded Headies Award also had a wonderful year. The former Rat poison seller and bricklayer is a proud owner of a Range Rover sport and a Headies car, his song “Girlie O” which was followed by a remix featuring the everly sultry lovable Mavin’s 1st lady is considered as one of the biggest song of 2014.
The formal EME soldier and revelation of the year award nominee parted ways with his former Boss after which he claimed his contract expired went ahead to launch his ‘OHK’ record with his friend DreyBeatz. Not long after BaseLine Record came calling for the young act signature.
Skales has been in the industry for long, even before most of his current counterparts, he was seen as an underdog not until he was forced to switch genre from his Rap to Party song (Normal 9ja timkpa timpka songs). His breakthrough song “Shake Body” is one of the biggest songs of 2014, Skales is also a proud Owner of a FORD jeep.
If you have been an ardent follower of Nigerian Music you would know that Mr Songz is not a child in the industry (it have tey). In the early 2000s he was signed to ‘Question Mark’ Records that housed the likes of Mode9, Cino, Triple B, TerryThaRapMan then.
Not much was heard from Mr songz until he got signed to Five Star Music recently. He got his musical breakthrough after releasing ‘Am In Lovee’, ‘Beta Pikin‘ under Five star Music, and he said he made 60 million from Better Pikin. (only God Knows)
“I went to London to shop for belt and sneakers, and someone showed me a car if I would love to buy it, after checking the car I love it and I bought it” Harrysong.
Harrysong is also an MTN ambassador and he also got himself a HUMMER JEEP less than two months ago, no doubt, harrysong would Neva forget the year 2014 in his music career.
Mr Gallardo sure had a wonderful 2014 with songs like Gallardo, Baby Answer, Domot etc and awards nominations among other hot features like Emergency!!
5. THE MAVINS (REEKADO BANKS, KOREDE BELLO, DI’JA)
They are the Supreme Mavin Dynasty. These young men and young lady definitely moved from nobody to somebody, before they got signed to the Mavin Record, nobody knew who they were, or where they are, but all thanks to Don Dorobucci for discovering such talents, and they surely had a smooth and wonderful year, headlining shows, winning awards, touring countries etc releasing hits upon hits like Dorobucci, Adaobi, Looku Looku, etc
Reekado Banks won rookie of the year at the Headies award while Korede Bello won newest artist of the year at the Future Awards among others
6. LiL KESh
He used to be an underdog street rapper attending kids birthday party jus to perform. But he is now a force to reckon with in the music scene, His Shoki single is arguably the biggest song of the year with funny one eye dance step to go with it. The YBNL signee also featured ONE of the Biggest act in the Continent in the person of OBO (davido).
Worthy mentions; Tekno, Kiss Daniel & PoslyDT.
