Nigeria has been ranked second in Africa as the country with the most YouTube viewers. The tremendous growth in the number of online video viewers is a clear indication of how YouTube has immensely grown to be more profound in the country and, at the same time, become the best platform to promote Nigerian music videos online.
Consequently, Nigerian artists can now enjoy having more than a million views for their music videos on YouTube just like some of the world’s most renowned artists.
Nigerian music videos are generally known for having a perfect combination of rhythm, tempo and beat which are often infused with the greatest melody, irrespective of their genres.
Truth is, Nigerian artists are among the world’s most important people. For centuries, they’ve been excelling beyond the world’s imagination, giving out their best on stage and on the mic.
Most of their songs carry different elements that send across messages of love, peace, unity, good values and whatnot. Although most Nigerian artists go for love songs, others have carved names for themselves as ambassadors of African values and heritage.
To crown it all, most singers in the Western Africa country are famed for the superiority they bring to other African countries and the rest of the continent and beyond. To mention but a few, the likes of Wizkid, Davido, D’Banj, Don Jazzy and much more have made us all proud in the past with their classic concerts outside Nigeria. Interestingly, they keep impressing and excelling with each passing year.
Recently, it was reported that American music powerhouse Jay-Z suddenly took interest in Nigeria’s music industry. This is not only exciting but also a clear indication that our ‘boys and girls’ are really giving out what the people want to hear and how they want it.
Nigeria is the giant of Africa. When it comes to music, the story is the same in movies too. Our artists keep making us proud, flying the iconic green and white flag higher than anything else. Their songs have taken over the streets of YouTube and there’s no sign they are moving down – both in quality and quantity.
