Having said that who are the top 10 best musicians in Nigeria today? 

 

Here are the top 30 best Nigeria musicians and you won’t believe who took the number one spot on this list of best musicians in Nigeria.

 

  • Fela Anikulapo Kuti

Fela Anikulapo Kuti

 

Fela was born in the year 1938 precisely October 15th in Abeokuta of Ogun State. 

 

Kuti’s history is one that’s been told all through the 90s to date.

 

and the most interesting thing is that it’s still fresh because of his music which still echoes through time. 

 

Fela is a Nigerian musician, activist and the founder of Afrobeat you and I both enjoy today. 

 

Why you may want to put Davido or Wizkid first on this list, I think Fela did more than both artist combine. 

 

Fela’s education was geared towards raising the consciousness of Nigerians to the. corrupt nature of government entities in politics. 

 

and for this, he was persecuted severally for speaking out. 

 

Fela died in the year 1997 but in the world of today, you and I still dance to Afrobeat which. is a genre he created. 

 

Afrobeat is a fusion of Jazz, Funk, Ghanaian highlife, salsa, calypso, and traditional Nigeria Yoruba music. 

 

I didn’t think twice when piecing this article together to name him the best Nigeria musician of all time.

Although Wizkid had to quit the label due to a little disagreement, I am sure he. holds a lot of respect to the man who made him.
