Top 5 Nigerian Street Artistes That Their Careers Died After One Hit Song

Issa Banger! Yes, everybody on this list once made bangers that held the street at a standstill but sadly they all fizzled out after their one hit.

We all know that one hit wonders are a common phenomena in the music industry and the street music niche isn’t left behind.

These artistes listed below came, they saw but they all failed to conquer not to talk of earning the title of King Of The Street, however, they managed to make at least one hit That did hold the street down for a minute.

BazeCity would take you through these artists that made wonders with just a hit and went by the wind.

Check out 5 One Hit Wonders The Street Has Produced:

Igboro By Famous:

I think most street music lovers must have heard this jam “Igboro” somewhere.

Famous went from being addressed as Famous to Famous Igboro after the success of this tune. The impact of the producers of this song, 2T Boiz have made on the street music sphere cannot be overemphasized as they have been responsible for the production of several street bangers including their biggest bop, “Penalty” by Omo Iya Teacher, Small Doctor.

The song earned a remix with reminisce and lopo and as it’s stay atop in the street music hierarchy came to an end, so did Famous’ career. It fizzled out like smoke.

Olalakeside – Elegushi Spender:

It is not by magic that this song almost took the street as of the time of its trend.

This song was so huge it earned a remix with Oritse Femi and The Alaga Ibile, Reminisce.

Originally released in 2014 by Olalakeside and found the grace of the street and making it the number One street, club and carnival song.

It was Shanawole season and the ballers didn’t allow the death of this song without a fight; millions of dollars were burnt in several clubs across the country, olalakeside was winning or so he thought.

Downfall eventually came and not even the remix with the musical taliban and the OGB4IG, reminisce could lengthen it stay, several videos and singles came after that from olalakeside and 5 years later, none of them hit.

Legbegbe By Mr. Real:

This street jam “Legbegbe” cannot be overemphasized because it actually spoke for itself.

Shaku Shaku did a lot of people dirty and amongst the people that suffered from the shortness in duration of this genre is Mr Real. The producer turned artiste featured Obadice and Idowest on the banger he titled “Legbegbe”, a mockery of the actor and film producer who was caught on more than one occasion engaging in fraudulent activities, Seun Egbegbe.

The original song and the genre in entirety was influenced heavily by Gqom, a popular South African music genre and it was only right for him to seek out South Africa for the remix as the song was doing well over there. The remix happened and it saw Dj Maphorisa, Queen of Afro House, Niniola, Vista and Dj Catzico team up but their efforts were rendered invalid as it wasn’t accepted.

“Issa Banger” with Dbanj gave him hope but it was snatched back by the cold hands of the industry.

Several songs, videos, style change and an EP later, things remain on a standstill more like a backward recliner for the career of Mr Real.

Bigiano – Shayo:

You know the story of Shayo Master?

A jam and half! Several people’s childhood isn’t complete without the mention of Shayo! Produced by the legendary Sheyman and released in the year 2010. Shayo was so big it’s impact helped the album “Shayo Master” Gain alot of traction.

Unknown to many, bigiano was from a very comfortable home, he was born in the United Kingdom and then relocated to Nigeria at 7.

“Shayo” did a lot for bigiano including earning him a nomination at the MTV MAMA for best breakthrough act in 2010.

The effect of Shayo cleared (Pun Intended) And bigiano couldn’t get High again.

10 years later and his career is still sober.

Banana By Slyde:

Almost all the songs on this list earned a remix from a big name but only this remix actually did better than the original song. Banana by Slyde slowly crept into our ears but the remix with Timaya Sealed it’s status as a fully fledged street banger.

Produced by Jay Pizzle, released in the year 2013 and remixed the year after; “Banana” came at a time where the lifespan of Songs was several months to years even unlike right now that in a few weeks to months, the industry is moving on to what’s new.

After “Banana” no other attempt by Slyde was accepted by the industry. Maybe 2020 is the year Slyde returns.

Which of these songs served as your favorite during its trend?
