The Evolution of Nigerian Music In The Last Decade


As the sun sets over Lagos, Nigeria, the sounds of thumping bass from the nearby bars and clubs echo through the streets. For years, Nigerian music has been a source of pride and joy for the nation, an expression of the country’s culture and identity. But music is now evolving in ways not seen before, becoming an increasingly international and influential force.

One factor that has been driving this change is the rise of streaming services. By allowing listeners to access music from anywhere in the world, streaming services have opened up new possibilities for Nigerian artists. With a few clicks, they can now reach an audience of millions, allowing them to expand their reach and influence. This is particularly true for the country’s rap and hip-hop scene, which has seen a surge in popularity in recent years.

The #nairalife Of A POS Agent Forced To Plot New Business Moves


What is your first memory of money?

I’d say it was earning my first salary at my first job. 15k in 2011, and I’d just finished secondary school.

Why was this a significant moment?
My mum didn’t want me to get a job because she wanted me to go to school, even though it was almost impossible at the time. She was raising four kids on her ₦20k teaching salary. At numerous points, she picked up extra tutorials and even had a small shop, but what she made was barely enough to cover the family’s basic needs.

You must have noticed I haven’t mentioned my dad.
