This is a voting category for the most promising upcoming act in the year under review. In no particular order, the artistes in contention for this award are:
- Reekado Banks
- Kiss Daniel
- Cynthia Morgan
- Korede Bello
- Lil’ Kesh
Even though all the aforementioned artistes in this category deserve to win the award, we can’t deny the fact that just 2 of them have been really outstanding. They are Mavin’s Reekado Banks and YBNL’s Lil’ Kesh. Both of them churned out different hit songs over the past 10 months, with Reekado dropping songs like Sugar Baby, Katapot and Corner, his YBNL counterpart Kesh didn’t slack either with songs like Gbese,Efejoku and a stunning performance in Ladi, off Phyno and Olamide’s mixtape.
Even though the Don Jazzy’s Mavin factor will play a huge role in raising Reekado’s chances, we don’t believe that it will be enough for the street credibility of Olamide and his Protégé – Kesh.
We expect Lil Kesh to take this one home
