2face, D’banj, P-Square – Who Was The Biggest Artiste Of Their Era?

Taiwo Oluwafemi | - Leave A Comment

About 15 years ago, the competition that occurred in the Nigerian music industry was not overly limited to certain people unlike it is now.

During that era, there were a number of artistes who were very big and created keen competition for each other. We had the likes of 2face, D’banj, P-square, 9ice, Darey, Olu Maintain and a few more.

However, of all these artistes, there were three who stood out as ultimately the biggest of that era. 2face, D’banj & P-square were certainly the commandants of the Nigerian music industry.

Although they were all very big, people still argue a lot when they are obliged to narrow down to one the biggest artiste of that era. This makes a lot of people say 2face was biggest of all, some say it was D’banj while others say it definitely was P-square who was biggest.

This therefore has in some way caused an argument over here too, and in a way to help us put the argument to rest and have your opinion on the topic as well, we would like to know who you think was biggest.

    psquare is 3rd..good music… but never won artist of the year or international awards. though dominated best duo. Dbanj is second good songs, intl awards and all but song lacks depth and easily forgotten.

    2baba is king…2baba is the GOAT… until davido the most awarded artist in Africa. all kinds of awards. music that will last a life time. a career that even till today is still winning awards. He is a trend setter he is a pioneer. he is still relevant. To compare 2baba with any artist in Nigeria is a joke.

    People have spoken well to chose their preferred choices, p-square of Peter and Paul holds the title,the are the best of all time.

    P-square can’t be compared to any of those local dbanj and 2face, p-square surpasses and should be their icon.

    D’Banj and the Mo’Hits crew were the kings, every single was a hit, back to back lol even after they separated they all did well but D’banj still stood out, Plantaation Boys Broke up and Blackface and 2baba still dey fight, Mo’Hits is back together and all winning, D’banj is Still making hits, Psquare were a pop sensation with their dance moves and they had more viral songs but less overall exposure.

    People don’t know these psquare guys. They have been and are still the richest musicians in Nigeria.

    These guys are so rich, that they are the only guys in music that have houses in Banana Island. Like they have three different big houses for Peter, Paul and Jude.

    At the moment Paul is erecting another structure in Banana Island.

    I am not sure of what u mean by the most successful but no doubt Psquare till date made the most money from music in Nigeria.
