2013 has been a great year for the Nigerian hip hop industry. A lot of new and talented artists have emerged and are making a name for themselves. The music is becoming more popular and mainstream. Nigerian hip hop is definitely on the rise.

The History of Nigerian Hip Hop

Nigerian hip hop first came to prominence in the early 1990s with artists such as Baba Fryo and the Afrika Bombaataa crew. By the mid-1990s, hip hop music was beginning to gain a foothold in Nigeria, with rappers such as Eedris Abdulkareem and the Plantashun Boyz achieving mainstream success.

The Nigerian hip hop industry has since gone on to produce some of the biggest names in African music, with the likes of D’banj, Don Jazzy, Wizkid and Davido all achieving international recognition.

The Current State of Nigerian Hip Hop

In recent years, the Nigerian hip hop industry has grown exponentially, with artists such as M.I., Wizkid, and Davido becoming household names both in Nigeria and across Africa. However, the industry is still in its infancy, and there is much room for growth. One major problem facing the industry is a lack of infrastructure; there are few record labels, studios, or other institutions that support Nigerian hip hop artists. This lack of support often leads to artistes not being able to release their music or market it effectively. Additionally, many Nigerian hip hop artistes do not have formal training in music production or songwriting, which can limit the quality of their music.

Despite these challenges, Nigerian hip hop is thriving. In 2013, several Nigerian hip hop artistes released critically acclaimed albums and mixtapes, and the genre is starting to gain more mainstream acceptance. There are also a number of young Nigerian artistes who are beginning to make a name for themselves both in Nigeria and abroad. It is clear that Nigerian hip hop has a bright future, and it will be interesting to see how the genre develops in the coming years.
