The Nigerian entertainment industry has really evolved, especially the music industry, as new stars keep emerging, This is a good sign that the Nigerian music industry will definitely stand the test of time in the global music industry.
First, we had the likes of 2baba, D-banj, 9ice, Sound Sultan etc that made lots of waves years back. Followed by Wizkid, Davido, Burna Boy, Phyno, Olamide, who took the industry to the next level, gaining international recognition.
It is wise to say that Wizkid and Davido‘s era is gradually taking a new shape in the music industry as Rema, Fireboy, Joeboy, T-classic, Oxlade and Omah Lay are beginning to make a name for themselves in the industry.
It is safe to say that the future of the Nigerian music industry is secure with the new breeds on board. The industry is like a relay race where batons are passed from one hand to another or better still, from one generation to another.
New musicians keep unfolding and comparisons will not end any time soon in the industry. This time, it is no longer Wizkid, Davido and Burna Boy but Oxlade vs Omah Lay.
This comparison started the moment Oxlade dropped his new song DKT, which has gotten everyone talking.
Some people are applauding and rooting for Oxlade, saying he brings out the best in any song he’s on. Some are also saying he is the best thing to have happened to the Nigerian music industry.
Some would rather go for Omah Lay saying he is far better than Oxlade.
