11 Young Artist You Need to Know In 2017, Check Them

  Good day guys, today we are going to review some artist that left an impressive dent on us in the year 2016. I've been able to go through the list and I see them as the young artist we should expect to perform well in 2017.

so, without wasting much of your time, let me hit it on the head. sit down get a popcorn and a drink as we go through these together.

1: Tekno Miles

    Name: Augustine Miles Kelechi
    DOB:  December 17, 1992

     Popularly called Alhaji Tekno (aka Mr. BIG CASAVA) is an Afro-pop artist who is a decent of Ebonyi state, he was born in Bauchi state Nigeria . I remember the first time I heard his song "Holiday", I knew this young man has something to offer. He has been hitting us with hit songs 😃.
He sure deserve to be on this list. He is also an impressive gem in production and playing ( the guy sabi play no be small), this dude is upto something big.
Personally I think he still need to work on his lyric sha. Last year Tekno hit a big deal with SONY Music, we are yet to hear any production done under that (SONY) yet, but we sure know he will hit us hard.

2. Ayo Jay

   Name: Ayoola Ogundeyi Jr 
   DOB:  August 9, 1989

         Ayo Jay is an Afro- Pop artist, a graduate of Finance and Investment at Baruch College U.S.A.  I prefer to tag Ayo Jay as a silent achiever (but seriously,  this guy's PR team needs to work on his social platform and make sure they get him a bigger fan base here in Africa, because I feel he has a stronger one in America).
      Personaly speaking, I am a big fan of his, the guy's voice, his composure and his lyrics are good (he has made this clear with the release of his two new singles, 'Vibe and Want You). He was featured in a collab by kickraux and Ras Kwame with Tiger, demarco and doctor.
 He has also featured other artists such as Fetty Wap on his hit song "Your Number", he also has another version of the song with Chris Brown and Tyga. He is also signed to One Nation and RCA where he shares thesame platform with Usher, Beyonce and so many big artist.
With his 2016 achievment especially, "Your number" popularity in the states, 2016 was a great year for Ayo Jay, his new single 'Want You' is already a force in the industry  market. I can see that 2017 promises to be a bigger one for him with a debut EP and album in progress.

3. Mr. Eazi

    Name: Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade
    DOB:  9, 1991

     I love MR. Orente's voice. His album 'Gold' has earned him awards and nominations, he is signed to YBNL. He has blessed us with good sounds and songs that has this yoruba catchy feeling that you can't help but stop and listen to.
      His album was a star, I listened to the songs one after the other with no reason for me to skip any song. His personallity is another thing I love about him. Definitely it's a takeover for him in 2017

7. Freeman

    Name: Freeman Ayis Emmanuel
    DOB: June 19

     Freeman aka Mr Good Boi who is a decent of Kaduna State  is a graduate of Industrial Chemistry from University of Abuja. I applaud his consistency, courage, and sudden rise from zero to hero. His songs exhibit this sensational aura of Afropop and Hiphop.  The Abuja based artist came to limelight with the release of his hit song 'Good Boi' . He then blessed us with another hitsong 'OK' which currently has a massive airplay and recognition, one of such is Audu Maikori of CHOC CITY groving to the song. The year 2016 has seen him smile but I personally believe 2017 will make him laugh.

    DOB:  January 29, 1993

 Ycee singed to Tiny Entertainment is also known as Mr. Jagaban. He has created a strong niche for himself from nothing to something, and that, I 'Respek' about him, he's a talent. Late 2016 saw him flex his talent when he got a major deal with Sony Music. 2017 should be a year of success for the young man...

9. Dremo

  Dremo is a rapper, producer and songwriter with a unique blend of Hip-hop and Afro eat sounds.  He began his music production career at age 12. Currently signed to HKN music/DMW.  The Edo state indigene is giving us a reason to believe he's a moving train that can not be stopped, his songs are living proof to that.
     Dremo is fast becoming a household name. The song Ojore has seen the artist move from top chart to top charts, it gained him recognition. I must commend his PR team. We are currently waiting for his official 2017 first song.
2016 was a year of recognition for him, i believe 2017 will be a blast for the artist.

10. Zoro

        Name:  Owoh Chimaobi Chrismathner
        DOB:     March 20, 1990

   A rising Hip-Hop satr from Enugu with a fair cut of the rapper 'O42'. Zoro was the rapper in the hit song 'Owu sa gi'. The rapper has a blend of High-Life, Afro-Pop and Hip-Hop, so it is safe to say he's an all rounder.
   Zoro blessed us with songs upon songs in 2016. His song "Ogene" created a niche for him. The song got a massive airplay allover the country. He flows in his native language which is 'Igbo'. He has given us another reason to believe he will be in the limelight this year with the release of his latest song "Good Year" featuring Awilo logomBa. The song already is on another level.

11. Terry Apala

          Name:   Terry Alexander Ejeh
          DOB:      1988

        Is it the raspy voice, Fuji (Apala) feeling, Afro Hip-Hop or blend of Hip-Hop and Fuji that got us falling in love over and over again wuth this young man? Born Alexander Ejeh, he began his music career at a tender age and has been doing music for almost 20 years.
   The young man started gaining attention in 2016, he is loved by his fans for bringing the almost extinct Yoruba genre "Fuji" back to life in an awesome way. He has a way of giving his beat complementary lyrics.
   He describes his genre as 'Apala Hip Hop', having gotten inspiration from late Haruna Ishola and also upbringing in the Yoruba way.
    If you don't know this 'Talent' then please go Google him up... You need to have him on your playlist. I can't wait to jam to his 2017 hit songs.
