One of the fastest growing industries in Nigeria is the music industry. It’s lucky to have the likes of Wizkid, Burna Boy, and Davido that are putting the country on a global scale in terms of featuring with A-list artists across the globe like Wizkid collaborating with Drake on “Come closer” and also with Beyoncé on “Black Skin Girl”. In addition, he gained several nominations at the Grammy and is also winning one at the moment. Likewise, Burna boy is also a Grammy winner who has features with countless renowned artists and even got P Diddy to produce his album. On the other hand, Davido “The 30BG boss”, has also made huge impacts when it comes to putting Africa on a global scale. Nigeria’s music industry is booming and is filled with many Handsome artists, which is the focus of this article.
The Nigerian music industry is filled with fashionistas, people who can cop dope fashion brands the likes of Bottega Veneta, Yeezy, Mason Margella etc. and give us good fashion content and these are the things that add to how an artiste appears alright to us. Some of them are:
10. Burna boy
Odogwu is definitely rated high talk about his fashion sense and yes he’s being able to date a top-tier artiste,Stefflon Don. Burna Boy, is a Grammy winner too and has collaborated with many A-list artists around the world and his fusion of fashion with music has made him qualify to be on this list and yes he’s combining this with being what a woman will definitely want.
9. Johnny Drille
Do you know what came to my mind as I was writing this part? The mindblowing, and relatable lyrics of Johnny’s Hallelujah. But aside from being a good songwriter and musician, I don’t think any Nigerian girl would refuse him being her boyfriend because of his good look. John Ighodaro was born July 5, 1990. Currently signed to Mavin Records, his career came into the spotlight when he released a cover of “Awww” by Di’Ja. Johnny studied English and Literature at the University of Benin. Being a devoted musician who produces top-notch songs, his debut single “Wait for Me” was nominated for Best Alternative Song at The Headies 2016.
Davido’s “Fall” and “If” will always be evergreen on our minds, 30BG chairman has given us hits for days and he’s consistent about this. Davido does not only do foreign apparels, but man also dazzles in native attires, his fashion style is tip tier and yes obviously Davido should definitely be on the list.
The rave lord, Rema is definitely one the most handsome musicians, yes obviously Rema is stylish and even had the late Virgil Abloh make a beat for him for the remix of his single, “Peace of Mind” and this is as a result of his activeness in the fashion space and also cops more of Virgil Abloh work. Rema, even though young is what you’d see babes drool over on the social media space and he’s a lover of women too, that’s obviously not a problem for him, he knows how to handle being handsome and the fame that comes with it.
Joseph Akinwale Akinfenwa-Donus, popularly known as Joeboy was born on the 21st of May 1997. This talented musician is into Afro-pop and R&B. In 2019, Joeboy won Best Artiste in African Pop at the 2019 All Africa Music Awards and Best Pop at the 2020 Soundcity MVP Awards Festival. Still, this young musician keeps doing exploits in the music industry. To show his great passion for music, he once used his portion of the grant he received from emPawa100 to shoot a video for one of his songs, titled “faaji”. Aside from his cool voice, he has the looks some girls are willing to die for.
5. Omah Lay
Stanley Omah Didia was born on the 30th of May 2000. This talented music artist is from Rivers State. Omah attended Comprehensive High School in Rivers State then proceeded to the University of Port Harcourt. Having started in a rap group under the stage name Lil King, he later expanded to songwriting and music production which was largely uncredited. Due to this reason, he released “Do Not Disturb” in April 2019. However, in 2020, he became the first artist highlighted for Apple’s Africa Rising Campaign to spotlight African talent.
Do you want lyrics? Do you want to listen to the depth of the music? Trust me, Alhaji Tekno won’t give you any of this but be rest assured to get good vibes and dance steps from the baba himself. Tekno might have a small body but the freshness speak for itself and doesn’t have to go any length to show this. Tekno is qualified to be on this list.
Dazzling in his Mason Marcella on a simple but very dope slide, Wizkid has shown us that it’s not always by wearing the “normal” tight jeans with a tee and then sneakers that’d make someone look fly or nice. Going by his way of life and music, “no stress”, Machala has been doing this consistently even though simple but it’s crazy. Starboy is unarguably one the most handsome musicians in the industry with three different baby mamas and a kid with each of them, we’d call him a high-needed commodity.
2. Kizz Daniel
Up till now, the lyrics of Kizz Daniel’s Yeba still gingers me when I’m down. It’s always nice to remember how he started gaining more popularity from “Woju” and made it to “Barnabas”. In 2013, Oluwatobiloba Daniel Anidugbe signed a record deal with G-Worldwide Entertainment but left the label after a publicized contract dispute and court case. Fortunately, he also founded the Fly Boy Inc record label in November 2017. During his early days, he attended Abeokuta Grammar School. Later, he got a degree in Water Resources Management and Agrometeorology from Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta. A passionate musician, Kizz Daniel pursued his music career even as a student.
Every crush of Chike would agree with me that this young talented musician makes a perfect lover. Born on January 28, 1993, Chike-Ezekpeazu Osebuka is popularly known for participating in Project Fame West Africa and finishing in second place on Season 1 of The Voice Nigeria. A native of Onitsha, Anambra State in Nigeria, Chike originated from a family of four children. Interestingly, he’s also a graduate of Covenant University with a degree in Computer Engineering. Chike’s debut single “Fancy U”, was released in December 2016 under the Universal Republic, and its music video was released in 2017.
You will agree with me that this topic about the top 10 handsome musicians in Nigeria is a controversial one because there are a host of other very handsome Nigerian musicians out there. And so we recognize that there are various views from various people about the most handsome set of Nigerian Musicians.
But we want you to tell us in the comment section, those you think are worthy enough to make this list as well.
