The Nigerian Music Industry is now one of the biggest in Africa. Everyday, new and talented up-coming artistes keep on emerging. With more than a hundred thousand artistes fighting to blow their way up, it's very hard to ascertain and verify who is who, and who would make it in this 'music battle'. So based on this premise, I have decided to make a critical but brief analysis of the 'Top 10 Artistes from Northern Nigeria to Look Out For in 2015', so that when they finally blow, you would know that Enoch Israel told you first. This list is based on the artistes' achievements in 2014, as well as their plans for 2015. 10. MC ROLEX: Rolex hails from Nasarawa State. He is a graduate of Nasarawa State University, Keffi and a post-graduate student at Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. He is a very good rapper and singer. He has done collaboration with good artistes such as Jahbwai and Genesis of Rhymes just to mention but a few. He is co-signed by Terry G, and rumours has it that he is currently working on a track with the King of the South, Erigga. 9. DANBEE: This is one Gospel artiste that is totally different from all other Gospel artistes. Danbee hails from Kaduna State, and is currently a student of Federal University of Technology, Minna. He is a Gospel singer that signed a N500,000 record deal with NAIM Records. What is more? Danbee has won a couple of awards in his school. He is someone you should look out for in 2015. 8. CLASSIQ: Never heard about Classiq? Then you are dulling yourself. Classiq is one of the professionals when it comes to Hausa rap. He hails from Plateau State, and has done collaboration with artistes such as the Loopy Records' first lady, Ruby Gyang and Kheengz. His style of delivery is very cunning that could steal your head from your neck without you noticing it. He is one great artiste you should expect in 2015. 7. GUNZZ: This artiste is just good beyond reasonable doubt. He hails from Benue State, but based in Abuja. He graduated from Nasarawa State University, Keffi. He is a rapper that spit bars more than 90% of Nigerian Super Stars. He has done collaboration with 9ice and other top cats in the game. He is an artiste to watch out for in 2015, as he is self-focused. Before his graduation, he was the Rap King in Nasarawa State University, Keffi. 6. GENESIS OF RHYMES: He is a great producer, singer and rapper. Genesis hails from Kaduna State but based in Lafia, Nasarawa State. He is an amazing artiste with multiple talents. He has worked with artistes such as Ozee, Gunzz, King Sniffy, MC Rolex among others. He was awarded the best producer in Nasarawa State University, Keffi. He is surely gonna explode in 2015. 5. KING SNIFFY: He is a rapper, poet and a writer. Sniffy hails from Nasarawa and Kaduna State at the same time. Complicated right? Yeah, King Sniffy is a complicated artiste. He still remains a mystery that is difficult to unravel. He is a student at Nasarawa State University, Keffi. He is known to be 'The King of the North' aka 'KD First King'. What is more? Sniffy is co-signed by Ice Prince and Mi-Fliss. Just of a recent, he recorded a track titled, Ice Prince Boy which received impressive comment from his boss, Ice Prince. Rumours has it that King Sniffy is working with Ice Prince and Tha Suspect. He is a great force to reckon with. 4. JAHBWAI: This is one of the best producers in the North. Jahbwai hails from Kaduna State, but is based in Abuja. Anyways, he is no longer based in Abuja anymore as he relocate to Lagos after he was signed by Baseline Entertainment, the same label that signed Skales and Saeon. Jahbwai is an amazing producer and singer. He is a label mate with the former EME rapper, Skales. He has worked with many up-coming artistes before leaving Abuja. These artistes include Ozee, Gunzz, MC Rolex, DeeOhsee and many others. He is one mighty man that will detonate bombs more than Boko Haram in 2015. 3. WHITE NIGERIAN: Yeah, he is a white man at the same time a Nigerian. He hails from Jos, but is based in Abuja. He is Tekno's best friend. But one thing I can't explain is how Tekno blew before him. Well, I guess that explains this popular adage, 'all fingers are not equal'. Though he is a White Man, yet White Nigerian fuses his song with English and Hausa, which makes it interesting, witty and amazing. Have you ever heard an Onyibo speaking Hausa? If no, then download White Nigerian songs and be amazed. He has worked with artistes such as Tekno, J. Martins and Morell. He is a dance-hall singer and rapper that will burst the airwaves in 2015. 2. OZEE: He is popularly known as 'Custom Officer with Swaggs'. Ozee is a young and talented singer, rapper and producer. He hails from Nasarawa State, and is a graduate of the state university. He is also running his Masters Program in the same school. He is a custom officer, and has worked with Jesse Jagz. Rumours has it that he is also working with Morell and Timaya. With about two albums in the market, Ozee is one hot artiste that is set to blow comes 2015. 1. KHEENGZ: You don't know Kheengz? Then you are not from the North. Believe me, he is the best Hausa rapper in Nigeria. Yeah, no competition. Kheengz hails from Minna, Niger State. He is a graduate of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. He has worked with M.I Abaga, Erigga and Classiq just to mention but a few. He is a star that will definitely mature to a sun by 2015. He is one rapper that is witty and funny. His lyrics will make you laugh no matter how bored and angry you are. He is just dope like that. Other artistes worthy of mention are: 5. Fidwon 4. Rap Army 3. Mac D 2. Mac Fabulous 1. Juboil Tha Boiling
