The Amapiano genre has become one of the trending sound in Nigeria as most Nigerian artists have made a job of fusing our afro sounds with the amapiano genre.
Originally from South Africa, the Amapiano genre infiltrated the Nigerian airwaves in 2020, and since then Nigerian artists have really made amazing hits with the sound.
In this post we will take a look at 7 Nigerian Artists Who Have Made The Best AMAPIANO Songs.
Below are some of the best to do it in Nigeria;
7. NAIRA MARLEY.
Naira Marley made a it with “Koleyewon.” The track was purely amapiano and a street favourite.
Niniola’s recent tracks; “Too Sweet(o dun)”, I Did It (ft Lady Du), Squander (ft Falz) are all Amapiano themed tracks which have grown to be hit songs across the country and the shores of Africa.
Fast rising music star, Asake is another artist whose songs has been greatly influenced by the Amapiano sound. Some of his hit tracks are; “Sungba“, “Peace Be Unto You”, “Organise” and some tracks off his recently released album “Mr. Money With The Vibe“.
Mayorkun was one of the first Nigerian artists who brought the Amapiano sound into the country. He did it in 2020 with his hit song “Of Lagos“.
From “Ma Pariwo”, “Kilofeshe”, “Rocking“, and “Blessings,” Zinoleesky has almost all of his hits songs heavily influenced by the amapiano tune. It’s worthy to note that Zinoleesky is the first Nigerian artist to mention Amapiano in his song.
2. BURNA BOY.
Burna Boy is also one of the first Nigerian artist who brought the Amapiano sound to Nigeria. He did so in 2019 with Kabza De Small and WizKid on a song called “Sponono.” He later did “Yaba Buluku” and had a feature performance on Asake’s “Sungba.”
To be fair Davido is currently one of the best Amapiano hitmakers in Nigeria. With features like “Ke Star,” “Champion Sound,” and hit Amapiano themed tracks from his “A Better Time” album, Davido can be tagged the King of Amapiano in Nigeria.
