Nigeria is the third largest African state in terms of population on the Black Continent. Nigeria is inhabited by more than 210 million people. By the way, according to this indicator, the country is in seventh place in the world. And therefore, it is not surprising that the Nigerian music market is of particular interest to music industry figures.
It is characteristic that two Golden Grammy 2021 Grammy Awards went to Nigeria. Their owners were Burna Boy and Vizkid, working in the style of Afrobeats. Burna Boy won the Best Album category, and Wieskid became the best in the Best Music Video for His Single category.
Nigerian music has won the hearts of not only the inhabitants of the country, but is also popular far beyond its borders. In 2021, the most popular hit of this African country can be considered «Burna Boy – 23» which is performed by the current winner of the Burna Boy Grammy Award. In second place in the TOP Nigerian hits is «Dimension» from Skepta and Rema artists. This single is only slightly inferior to the leader of the charts of Nigeria. And the third place of the podium went to the composition «For You» from feat. Davido.
Nigerian performer Burna Boy is undoubtedly the most popular artist in this country. By the way, he has been leading the Nigerian charts for the third year in a row. The popular singer owns the Spaceship Entertainment Corporation, whose shares he owns. Therefore, Burna Boy is considered not only the most popular singer in the country, but also a quite successful businessman.
Over the past few years, the Nigerian music industry has made an incredible jump. The coronavirus epidemic has somewhat slowed down the work of Nigerian music stars, but this does not prevent them from receiving Golden Grammy phones and delight their compatriots and the rest of the world with beautiful African hits.
