Many Nigerians who listened to them could not get enough of them because they left good vibes which impacted the Nigeria Music Industry.

These were albums we enjoyed then regardless of who was supporting them or the fact that they were new to the scene at that period.

10 years ago, Nigerian artistes dwelled much on Afrobeat and RnB. the likes of 2face, Psquare, Iyanya, Banky W were heavily invested in RnB while D’banj and others lead the afrobeat game.

Now the game has changed with the likes of Naira Marley, Joeboy, Rema, Fireboy, Zlatan, Burnaboy and other new act.

But below are the albums that impacted the Nigeria Music Industry

1. Wande Coal – Mushin 2 MoHits

Nigeria Music Industry

Many had been hearing of Wande from Ololufe which would later go on to win the Next Rated Award in 2009. When the album dropped in 2010, it was balanced on topics that resonated with youths: love, girls, and life generally.

There was something unique about this sound and the album would later go on to inspire the second album on our list.

2. WizKid – Superstar

Continuing on that pedestal of Wande Coal’s pop mantra, WizKid was here telling his own story and with impressive lyrical depth on beats that just felt so good.

The inspirational No lele, love ballads Gidi girl, Love my baby and party starters, What You Wanna Do, Shout Out. 17 tracks, no blemish.

3. Olamide – Rapsodi

You probably heard Eni Duro and uttered: “who be this guy” with a relentless rap style. The success of Eni Durowill later culminates in the album, Rapsodi, his debut LP.

Where Dagrin stopped, Olamide continued and took it to another level. Within a short period, everyone adopted the indigenous route. Rap in your language.

With her debut album, Asha, Asa introduced and defined what alternative truly is in Nigeria.

With hits like Jailer, Bibanke, Fire on the mountain would later go on to be hit in an industry dominated by mainstream RnB and Afrobeats. Pacesetter.

This particular album transformed the rap scene in Nigeria. Elite, simple, and easy to understand rap. MI2placed MI as the best in the game in Africa. Storytelling was at its peak here. Action Film, Nobody, One Nairaruled the airwaves then.
