2019 is about to come to an end and no doubt we have enjoyed good music that kept us dancing through out the year. This didn’t just occur but was due to the consistency, the brilliancy of some exceptional artistes in the hip-hop music industry.

Below is a list of 5 top artistes who can be regarded as the biggest in 2019

  • Davido : David Adeleke popularly known as Davido has been on this list since he started his career as an artiste. The dude has never disappointed his fans by not giving hits back to back. Right from the days of Damiduro till now, he has been topping his game easily like there is no competition.

2019 isnt an exception for the talented artiste, he recorded great achievements in 2019 alone, he released songs that instantly became national anthem over Africa, especially towards the ending of the year, he made some massive collaborations among which includes Risky which he featured Popcaan. The song which was just a freestyle session of Davido on a show became a massive hit. In 2019 too, he released his album titled A good time. The response the album got was just too massive, even the album art alone was enough.

  • Burnaboy : Although Burna Boy is one who isn’t consistent, he is not always releasing songs, he does whenever he feels like but 2019 has been a great year for Burna Boy. Hardly would you go to any gathering or party where they won’t play Burna Boy’s song, except In church (Lol).

  • Teni : Teni Apata, Aka Makanaki, is just a hell of a talent, Teni knows how to captivate her fans, knows how to make use of her voice to do any genre and has the charisma needed to pull crowd.

Teni, after the release of Uyo Meyo in 2018 became an artiste everyone wants to associate with.
