Do Nigerian Music Artistes ‘Die’ With Their Sounds?

Taiwo Oluwafemi | - Leave A Comment

Nigerian music is blessed with lots of extraordinary talents and many of these talents do a whole lot to make sure their skills and crafts are well projected to music lovers in unilinear and as well as dynamic forms which spells wide acceptance and appreciation.

But in as much as what is common in the Nigerian music scene is more of dynamic sounds, there are artistes who constantly follow a sound pattern/trend to make their music. The likes of Slimcase, Tekno, Mr Eazi are artistes who follow or are synonymous with a particular pattern of sound.

Slimcase introduced the Shaku-shaku trend and followed through that trend with the release of his songs in 2018, Mr Eazi and Tekno are popular for doing the Pon-Pon sound which was so big until the early weeks of 2018.

However, one thing that is quite noticeable is the fact that since the Shaku-shaku and Pon-pon pattern of sounds are no more in demand, these artistes have struggled to make a major impact on music like they did in the era of these sounds.

Slimcase has lost the recognition and acceptance he had when Shaku-shaku was trending and both Mr Eazi & Tekno have been struggling to find form amidst the irrelevance of the Pon-pon sound.

So with what is evident in the music life of Slimcase, Tekno and Mr Eazi, are we right to say that Nigerian music artistes find it very problematic to stay relevant once their kind of sound is no longer in vogue, do they ‘die’ with their sounds?

    I agree and disagree. This is because there are Nigerian artistes who evolve with time and sound. For example Timaya, Wande Coal, Wizkid, Runtown, Burna Boy etc What I mean is, their music style changes over time and they are able to remain relevant, even if they are not with the trend. Tekno is also an artist whose sound has evolved so, its not fair to say because he brought a new sound, he is dying off. Further more Pon pon sound is still trending on Radios. But I dunno about the zlantans and Slimcases

    That Collage should include Psquare. For they re not together again will never undermine what they’ve contributed to naija music industry. And as per the question, some artists surely will die with their sounds cos they re never talented in the first, they re just people that see the opportunity in a trending sound to gain popularity, once the slang or song is outdated, they also fizzle out.. Only talent will give u the dynamic sound and melody to navigate thru the ever demanding naija music word..
