Tekno, 24 (December 17 1992)
Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and music producer is our favourite boy, Tekno, who only flagged off his musical career in 2013 and now sits proudly with the artistes in the industry’s A-list category. At age 24, he has a variety of music hits and international endorsements worth millions of dollars.
Ycee, 24 (January 29 1993)
Ycee is arguably the industry’s new school commandant for Afro hip-hop. Often described as a gift that keeps on giving, his style of spoken-word rap, which samples a poetic influence, has endeared him to astute lovers of hip-hop. In like 2 years of active music practise, Ycee has sold records, headlined shows, bagged multiple nominations, won awards and signed endorsements deals. Occasionally, he moonlights as a rights activist for ignorant upcoming artistes.
Dremo, 24 (August 26 1993)
Dremo has been on the music grind for years – undiscovered. He shot to prominence with his hit cover of Panda, which got him signed to DMW and since then, life has changed from being a roller coaster to being a Buggati. At 24, Dremo already raps about living the big life. He has a music career to be proud of, and a future with bright lights.
BOJ, 23 (April 22 1994)
BOJ is one of the very few Nigerian artistes with a particular and distinct voice. His songs and style of fashion has endeared him to many in record time. Despite joggling education and music, the 23-year-old singer has succeeded in staying afloat even after leaving his boy band (DRB Lasgidi) to begin a solo career.
Kiss Daniel, 23 (May 1 1994)
The much-loved Kiss Daniel brand is a product of talent mixed with good management and some divine influence. Kiss is only 23 and barely 4 years as a pro artiste; but he already carries a bag full of achievements; hit songs, awards and influential award titles. He’d be looking to stuff more in the bag as he progresses in his career.
