The success of the Nigerian music company has greatly benefited the young men enrolled in the curriculum.
The young maestro also seized the chance and quickly rose to the top as a result of their extraordinary musical abilities.
As they compete for the top spot every year, their numbers and qualities have also attracted competitors to their status.
This article will discuss the Young Afrobeat Maestros who are now ruling the game.
The top icon in this area without a doubt belongs to the Nigerian singer and composer Rema.
He gained prominence immediately after being discovered by Don Jazzy and D’Prince, the CEOs of Mavin Record Label and Jonzing World. He was signed by each of their record labels.
The young man didn’t hesitate to take advantage of his opportunity and contributed several successful songs to the development of the Afrobeat genre.
Barack Obama, the former president of the United States of America, put his debut song from the Mavin Record Label, “Iron Man,” to his holiday Playlist. This earned him early recognition on a global scale, which boosted his confidence.
He continued to write and perform various popular songs, which helped him win numerous important musical honors and better showcase his abilities.
The hard work of Adedamola Adefolahan, better known by his stage name Fireboy DML, has earned him the second place in this category.
He was an up-and-coming, street-fighting potential Afrobeat gem who gained popularity after CEO of YBNL Olamide noticed him and gave him a boost.
He released a few popular songs after settling down and starting to succeed, like “Jealous,” which went viral. This inspired him to even conceive of a debut album, which turned out to be a success and made him an overnight sensation.
Since then, he has won numerous music accolades and broken numerous records, inspiring other budding Afrobeat Maestros to put in a little more effort.
The third-place finisher in this division is another YBNL gem. He is without a doubt regarded as a leader of the new Afrobeat generation.
After being found and signed to the YBNL record label by the Afrobeat king Olamide, Ahmed Ololade, also known as Asake, shot to fame quickly.
However, Olamide had remade his successful song, “Omo Ope,” before this effect, which made him a star that everyone wishes to embrace.
Asake introduced a new sound and genre that drew in a sizable fan following and turned him into a music chart treasure when he ruled the Nigerian music scene with his hit songs.
After receiving more than 300 million streams in total, Asake became the first emerging star from Nigeria to amass multiple music streams across all platforms.
Temilade Openiyi, commonly known as Tems, put in a lot of effort to earn her position at the fourth place in this category.
Tems ruled the Afrobeat scene until Wizkid made a mark with the genre by bringing successful songs to the Afrobeat. She developed a sizable fan base and went on to record numerous successful songs that perfectly encapsulated her position.
But after she met Wizkid, who helped her get international fame, her standing was enhanced. On the song “Essence,” which is regarded as one of the hit tracks of his fourth studio album “Made In Lagos,” she worked with the Afrobeat legend.
The song’s high quality drew in a huge audience, who streamed it heavily and propelled it to the top.
This won various music accolades, including “The BET” award, which has thus far been used to describe her musical abilities.
