See The Nigerian Musicians Listed In MTV Base “Ones To Watch For 2017”

MTV Base recently released a list of “Ones to Watch for 2017” – its hand-picked selection of artists tipped to make it big on the music scene in 2017.

Compiled by the MTV Base music and talent experts from across the continent, the list of 55 established and up-and-coming artistes is based on the channel’s assessment of the artists’ current and future potential, including sales performance, active release schedule, popularity/buzz, radio and video airplay, style, and other intangible factors.

Monde Twala, Vice President, BET, Youth & Music, VIMN Africa,  says  “Ones to Watch is our annual curated list of artists who we anticipate great things for in the coming year.  It’s awesome to see how far the artists on 2016’s list have come and how much the support we provide has helped these artists build their careers both locally and across the continent”.

Nigerians we have on the list this year include Ric Hassani, Dremo, Lola Rae, Mr Eazi, Terry Apala etc. We believe this year is going to be a great one for the Nigerian music industry.
