In Africa’s largest nation resides the continent’s largest music scene with Nigerian afrobeat artists leading the way. A large lineup of top Nigerian artists compliments Nigeria’s leading entertainment scene that has been centered around one of the world’s most popular film industries of Nollywood.
There is no question that Nigeria is Africa’s number one leader in entertainment as the country has produced, and is continuing to produce, numerous international stars in the form of either top Nollywood actors and actresses or top Nigerian artists within both the Afrobeat and the Afropop genres. Nigeria has truly set the standards and the trends of Africa’s pop culture and entertainment.
Through music, this West African nation has created an extensive list of Nigerian Afrobeat artists that have reached worldwide stardom with dozens of international stars. Nigeria is arguably the main reason for the popularity of the Afrobeat and Afropop genres, two of the world’s fastest rising genres. While some may say Ghana was the birthplace of the Afrobeat genre, top Nigerian artists like Fela Kuti truly popularized the genre.
Despite there being other genres of music in Nigeria, like Jùjú music, which was pioneered by King Sunny Adé, and Fuji music, in which was led by artists like Ayinde Barrister and Obesere, Afrobeat and Afropop music is far ahead of any other form of music.
