Below are 5 Nigerian artists thats need a better stage name:
Choosing Skuki as a name for a duo is what happens that one time when two heads fail to be better than one. Their individual names “Voom Va” and “Pishaun” do an even worse job of excusing their collective decision to be referred to as Skuki, a word that clearly sounds like a bad name for a pet rodent.
“MC” is so 90s, but we give a free pass on that as a tribute to MC Loph, but Galaxy? The Star Wars franchise created its own fictional universe and nobody goes by this name. How did a high life singer conjure Galaxy as a stage name?
HKN’s Sina Rambo attempted to ride on the fame of legendary 70s armed robber Shina Rambo (who derived his own name from the Sylvester Stallone classic Rambo) which was a great idea…until we heard him rap. The HKN rapper should be arrested for this travesty. How do you name yourself after a warrior then proceed to rap like a cheap insecticide of the same name?
Ay.Com thought it was a good idea to create this stage name for himself. His hit single “Pass me your love” even suggests that somewhere across the Atlantic there might be an older woman waiting for a phantom Nigerian prince to return the loan she sent him to cash his inheritance.
This is another uncreative stage name curated from the combination of the first letter of a real name with a seemingly cool word “red”, to create a combination of what sounds like a light weight STD.
