Prior to our last post where we listed out the ‘Top 10 Best Music Producers in Nigeria‘, below is the continuation below
5. Kel P
Real names Peter Kelvin, Kel P is not new to the Nigerian music industry, he has produced lots of songs for lots of Nigerian artists. Kel P was having a quiet year and did not get a breakthrough until he combined with Burna Boy to produce popular chart-topping song Gbona.
After the release of Gbona, Kel P and Burna combined again to make more magic and this time they released the angelic song On a Low. They still were not done as they cooked up yet another groovy banger with help from Zanku Master, Zlatan ibile, which burna called Killin dem.
You wont be wrong if you referred to Speroachbeatz as the baby of the house, as he is one of the youngest music producers in this list in terms of experience, making all his achievements in 2018 all the more astonishing.
After moving from Abuja to Lagos, speroachbeatz settled down and began producing beats mainly for DMW in 2018 and they were all successes, with the numbers of streams and YouTube views David’s assurance garnered, a proof of how just how successful Speroachbeatz was this year. Other successful songs with beats done by speroachbeatz worthy of note include Dremo’s ‘Kpa’ and co-producing ‘Nwa Baby’, 2face’s ‘Amaka’ featuring Peruzzi.
3. Fresh VDM
Togolese born producer, fresh VDM was the mastermind behind almost all the beats released from the DMW music factory.
Fresh VDM’s journey to being one of the best music producers in Nigeria began in 2017 when he produced the beat for Davido’s monster FIA. He continued his fine form from 2017 to 2018 and began the year with DJ ECool’s ‘Ada’, following up with super hits like , DMW’s ‘Mind’ and ‘Aje’, the power collaboration between Davido and Duncan Mighty ‘Aza‘, all major bangers this in 2018.
Fresh VDM was named ‘Producer of the year’ at the recently held AFRIMA awards in Ghana, highlighting just how successful his year was.
Like speroachbeatz, Northboi is a very young artist with not a lot of experience, however that did not stop him from producing some of the best songs in 2018, enlisting his name in the forefront of the top 10 best music producers in Nigeria. Although he did not produce as many songs as the other producers, the ones he did produce were so big they kept trending worldwide with the likes of wizkid’s ‘Soco’, ‘Gucci Snake’, & ‘Fever’, Mayorkun’s ‘Posh’ etc.
These songs were so big in 2018 they broke lots and lots of records with fever being the most searched song in 2018, Soco having the most YouTube views in 2018, (30million+) etc.
When it comes to music production, killertunes is a ‘beast’ and in a class of his own. Whenever the words ‘shabalistical’ is heard in a song, you immediately get the feeling that the song is going to be a banger no matter which artist jumps on the beat.
Killertunes was already one of the most sought-after producers in Nigeria, however when he produced Wizkid and Duncan Mighty’s heavy tune ‘Fake Love’ in May, his status rose to another level entirely.
The list of his famous and successful music production could be seen in songs like like DJ Spinall and Kizz Daniel’s ‘Baba’, DJ Spinall and Wizkid’s ‘Nowo‘, Olamide’s ‘Motigbana’ and ‘Logba Logba’, Dice Ailes ‘Mr Biggs’, and co-produced ‘Bobo’ by Mayorkun & Davido and of course ‘Fake Love’, to mention but a few.
