Bella Shmurda- Ginger Me

Seyi Vibez is another musician whose tracks are changing the street sound. He released “God Sent” in 2020, an emotive mid-tempo song about having obligations and needing to work harder than others to accomplish them.
Seyi likewise sees himself as a saviour who has been entrusted with the task of improving his family’s financial situation.
Davido announced Liya’s contract with his label, DMW, in 2020, which catapulted her into the spotlight. She released her debut EP, Alari, under the label, and Mp3bullet.ng chose “Adua” from the record for this list.
The song “Adua” has a spiritual sense about it that soothes the soul and relaxes the mind. Liya sings on how far she’s come in her music career and how her prayers have been answered in the song.
The song is a wonderful example of how a random encounter or someone can transform one’s life, given how she met her employer, Davido.
Bad Boy Timz-Hustle

Timz, the Bad Boy, gives advise and cautions one to be cautious even when hustling.
Zamorra-Better De Come
“E Never happen, no means say its over…”
In 2018, Zamorra released “Better De Come,” a year before releasing “Importanter,” a street banger starring Small Doctor.
The song “Better De Come” serves as a reminder that denial is not the same as delay. The work may be difficult, and the results may come slowly and not at the rate you desire, but none of this deters Zamorra, who thinks that greater things will come.
Diamond Jimma ft Otega-Aje
Diamond Jimma rose to prominence after the release of his single “Aje” in 2021. Diamond sings with assurance about how, no matter what, he would fulfill his destiny or fate.
Despite the hurdles placed to him by life, he declares in the Chorus that he will succeed. Otega, one of the song’s featured artists, raps about his dreams and how they keep him up at night.
Another underground street artist on this list is Areezy. His 2019 mega single “Ori,” a famous street hymn, is one of his songs you’ve probably heard.
In 2020, he released a new inspiring single called “Believe.” Areezy declares in this mid-tempo track that he wants to be rich and famous, which are the top two aspirations of most people.
This song serves as a reminder that we are not alone in our difficulties and aspirations for a better life.
Victor AD-Wetin We Gain
The song “Wetin We Gain,” one of the year’s most popular songs, is about consumerism and monetary success.
The song, termed a “hustler’s hymn,” became a smash because to its familiar lyrics.
Victor AD perfectly expresses the prayers of the typical Nigerian guy to God.
With lines like “If we don’t make money, what do we gain o?” and “If we don’t make money, what do we gain o?” Victor addresses the question of what good is hard work if one is unable to live a pleasant life.
He also requests God to lead him in the right direction because he is overloaded with chores that require money on a regular basis.
Hotkid is signed to Dr Dolor Entertainment and has gradually risen through the ranks of the music business. He launched the inspiring song “Ozana” in 2019, and the song became more famous in 2020.
“Ozana,” a slang term for Hossana, is more of a testimonial song. Hotkid utilizes his experiences as an up-and-coming musician to inspire people by demonstrating that never giving up has its benefits.
Aside from the great beat and flow, the words are motivating, especially for any emerging musician who is still battling for notice.
Otega is a young rapper who has gained a following on the streets and whose tracks can be heard on the playlists of most DJs. While he has been underground for some time, people who are familiar with street anthems will recognize his music.
His 2019 single “Facts” is more of a freestyle than an official tune, yet it just serves to highlight his talent. Otega raps on what he wants to do before he dies in “Facts.”
Rapping that he’d rather die hustling, Otega follows in Drake’s footsteps, dropping the classic lyrics “I’m here for a good time, not a long time” on Big Sean’s “Blessings” in 2015.
