2011 has come and almost gone. And during the course of the year, some songs that made us go mwch!, while other outstanding ones made our hearts pound out of excitement!

And of course, we know that these beautiful songs wouldn’t have been possible with some great artistes behind them. Thier songs rocked clubs, parties, concerts et al, making this year music-fun filled…


D’banj

Since the Koko Master made his debut into the industry, he’s never failed to dazzle his fans with irresistible songs. All from the stable of Mo’Hit records, his ‘boss’, Don Jazzy keeps imprinting magical beats and rhythm to make D’banj one of Nigeria’s best artistes.

This year has been an event-filled one for the dude, as he’s been seen jetting out of the country on several occasion. Financially, it has also been a rewarding one for him, as he also signed deals worth millions of dollars. And just October this year, he unleashed an Aston Martin Vantage car with only two doors.

This year, he also struck a record deal with one of Ameriac’s top rated artistes cum producer, Kayne West. But before then, he released a single, Mr. Endowed, with award winning American singer, Snoop Dog.

He still continues to make wave as an artiste who has proven his worth.


Tiwa Savage

As if coming from the blues, Tiwa made a debut into the industry just last year. Her first single, Kele Kele Love made a huge hit, shooting her straight into the league of A-list artistes in the country. After her first singles, she’s performed at countless concerts in and outside the country.

She’s also earned herself some cool cash and is one of the most rated female acts in the country at the moment. Her second single, Love Me Love Me is also a sensational track which has continued to make wave.
In the course of the year, she got nominated for the Grammy Award in the best R&B album category. And just this month, she just dropped another smoky one, Without My Heart, featuring Don Jazzy himself. Wow! She’s still smoky hot and sure ready to take us by storm next year?



Wiz Kid

He was faced with too many controversies through the year, ranging from impregnating an undergraduate, to allegedly stealing the Pakurumo song, to the internet naked picture scandal, the rumoured affair between him and sexy actress Tonto Dike and other ‘illicit’ affair-he’s sure got a bagful of scandals rocking his back.

But aside his scandalous stuffs, career-wise, he was one of those artistes that rocked the year. He performed at many shows and concerts like the FAB Night Out, Big Brother Amplified Finale and a host of others. Wizzy also made cameo appearances in other artistes, making him one of the artistes with numerous collabos in the year.

His singles that rocked this year include Wiz Party, Love My Baby, Pakurumo, Don’t Dull and others.



Omawunmi
She never ceases to dazzle with her strong vocal voice. Her debut single, In The Music, a song with the South African rhythm, shot her to limelight. Since then, she kept releasing songs after songs.

This year, her song, If You Ask Me became an instant hit-a song people thought stemmed out of her personal experience. But she proved pundits wrong, saying it was an experience of a young barrack girl!



P-Square
The two brothers of P-Square, Peter and Paul have become a house hold name in Nigeria and beyond. Aside their music prowess, their choreography is also another part where fans get hooked. Their eclectic performances makes them a force to be reckoned with in the country.

Not counting their success in the industry over the years, this year too was one of immeasurable success for them. Their singles Chop My Money, Bu Nie Ya Enu and Forever added to their many successes.


M.I

M.I, one of the Chocolate City boys is definitely an act to be reckoned with. When it comes to rap music, he ranks as the No.1 in the country. He picks his words one after the other, sending the songs straight to bed.

Number One, Beef, Action Film, One Naira, Epic and others were some of his singles that made wave in the year.


Ice Prince
Ice Prince was introduced into the musical scene with his monster hit track, Oleku in 2010. Since then Ice Prince has not rested on his loins, he released his highly anticipated album in October 2011 and was a supporting act for the Afrobeat festival in UK
