No one can deny the influence both Wizkid and Davido have brought to the Nigerian music industry both locally and globally, they have transformed how we perceive Nigerian music, making it cool and a source of pride for Nigerians at home and abroad. There is also no denying that we need something fresh, a new face to take us over the top.
We always hear whispers of a few talented upcoming artist with a promise to dethrone Wizkid and Davido, but like every whisper they quietly fade into the background. We might finally have found one in Steve-o, a Nigerian artist taking over the Nigerian digital airwave and social media with his new hit single “groundnut”. With a style that mixes wizkid’s artistic flows and M.i lyrical acclaimed style, you can’t help but love Steve and bump to his music.
