Nigerian Music Industry started trending many years ago when plantashun boiz (2 face, Faze and black face), Styl Plus, Psquare, Mohit record (Dbanj & Don jazzy) came to give us amazing vibes.
These Nigerian Artistes were so on point in dropping mad and danceable music jamz that makes us wanting for more.
However there are two notable (single) Artistes who were on top of their game. P-square would have been among but because they are duo, putting them here won’t be ideal.
2 Face (Now called 2Baba)
He was officially known when Kennis music signed him to the record label during early 2000.
2Baba released his debut solo album Face 2 Face (2004), which established him as a viable solo artist. Following the release of his debut album, he released his second album Grass 2 Grace in 2006, which contained hits “One Love”, “True Love, “4 Instance”. He is the founder of Hypertek Entertainment.
