Do you agree? MTV Base says Olamide is the HOTTEST Artist in Nigeria for 2015

Adesola Ade-Unuigbe




To be honest, this is spot on.

Earlier in 2015 Olamide released a collaborative album with Phyno called “2 Kings”. To close out the year he released yet another album where he featured no other artist – just Olamide – on “Eyan Mayweather”.

In between these 2 amazing feats he dropped a number of banging singles and videos that kept him relevant throughout the year.

Let’s not forget how he successfully managed the artists like Adekunle Gold and Lil Kesh under his YBNL Nation record label.

These and more are reasons why we agree with MTV Base that Olamide is the hottest artist in Nigeria for 2015 – do you agree?

    Definitely agree. It’s his time. He probably has the most collaborations this year. It’s like everything he touches turns to gold. Great job Olamide, keep up with the hard work.

    Please Someone should explain to me what Davido is doing in this list?? Even Seyi Shay was more relevant this year than Davido!!! Signing with Island Records, Bagging Endorsement deals with Pepsi and Cloud9 and Releasing Amazing songs not to talk more of Mind blowing Videos….. Can. any of what Davido Achieved this year be compared to “Quater” of what Seyi Shay has done this year???? MTV go and do your research well abeg

    best nigerian song of 2015:
    simi-jamb question,hands down this is the best naija song of 2015. lyrically, she killed it. this simi chic is so local and I love her for it .shes not trying to be the nigerian beyonce or nigerian rihanna or nigerian whatever, she is being simi and I really like that about her. She’s a real song writer and a story teller. pls simi fire ur publicist, he isnt doing a good job promoting u.

    runner up:harry songz-raggea blues.

    best nigerian music video of 2015:

    Yes Yes Yes….Its all about Baddo this 2015…..Eyan Mayweather. Sold Concerts, Versatile and creative artistes under his label, Even the songs he featured on are so popular on the airwaves e.g Ycees – Jagaban, Harry Songs – Raggae Blues. I AM SUCH A HUGE FAN. I cant wait to see what he brings in 2016. Still waiting for MTV to explain why Davido is on the list#crosshandoverchestandtapsfeet
