In a viral tweet by Joey Akan, a journalist, music critic and writer, Wizkid is the best artiste if the decade ahead of Olamide and Davido.
According to the music critic,
“The Nigerian artist of the decade is WIZKID. Nobody comes close to him.
No one has carried our music the way he has for so long, while consistently staying at the top and keeping his finger on all the changes to our sound, and evolving to meet those needs at the highest level.
He believes Wizkid has been up and doing for 10 years, driving the African music industry into the western world. He has repeatedly given us hits after hits on a yearly basis.
While many seem to disagree with his belief, others accept his judgment on Wizkid’s dominance.
Wizkid is undoubtedly the Nigerian Artiste of the Decade. His debut Album is arguably the Album of the Decade, took the international scene by a storm, dropped Consistent Hits with Soo Many Achievements. Davido & Olamide have done well & are ahead of Burna IMO. https://t.co/gEUBnvPAb5

Wizkid & Olamide both have shouts for artiste of the decade in truth. But going international, adapting to new sounds/changing style, putting afrobeats on the global map. Wiz edges it.
Ola's versatilty(raps/sings), putting on new acts, dropping at least 1 hit a year. Impressive!

Nigerian Artistes of the Decade ranked, in my opinion.
No other artiste has been consistent as the above-listed in the last 10 years.
