2. Ayra Starr:

Some might argue that the Mavins singer came into reckoning in 2021 and maybe shouldn't be on this list, but the truth is that she only became a household name in 2022.

Crayon has shown that he is a truly talented singer and one of the best young musicians of his generation.

His song Ijo Laba Laba is a subtle underground jam loved by many and has been doing some great numbers on the Nigerian music charts.

4. Carter Efe:

Skit-maker turn-singer Carter Efe might not be your favourite artist, but you would have to give it to him that 2022 has been his year. His monster single Machala, which he did with Berri Tiga, would rival Buga by Kizz Daniel as one of the year's biggest singles.
