Nigerian music has been growing year by year with a lot of stars making headlines with groundbreaking achievements.

There are some few who were able to achieve what so many of the past generation of music stars couldn't get all through their career.

The music scene in Nigeria is just the biggest and many can say it getting to the same level as the American industry.

Top 3 Nigerian Music Stars That Made Headlines In 2022

The year 2022 was an exceptional one for Nigerian music stars despite how the year ended for so many of them who had issues to deal with.

Davido had to deal with the loss of his son but that story wasn't how he ended the year which somewhat turned out a bit cheerful.

3: Kizz Daniel 

Singer Kizz Daniel made one of the biggest moves or let's say break in his career by performing at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar 2022.

The Buga crooner had the opportunity of selling himself to the World on the biggest stage of his career last year which was massive.

He was expected to be among the artists to perform during the opening ceremony of the tournament, but unfortunately, he wasn't able to make it happen.

Kizz Daniel was still able to perform at the FIFA World Cup fan festival in Doha at Al Bidda Park.

2: Burna Boy 

The year 2022 was a massive one for singer Burna Boy who was just making headlines and setting records.

Aside from his achievement in winning the Grammy Awards, he went on to put on a show last year at Madison Square Garden.

Burna Boy became the first music artist from Africa to sell out his ticket for his show at the Madison Square Garden in April 2022.

Arguably the African giant has written his name in history as the first to achieve a lot as a musician.


Davido was one of those few music acts who had a mixed 2022 which had it's up and down for him.

The OBO singer made some groundbreaking moves being featured for the official song at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

He made history with the song titled Hayya Hayya (Better Together) which had Cardona and Aisha.

He was also expected to perform at the opening ceremony which didn't happen due to his son dying the same year.

Davido was able to come back and shut down the Closing Ceremony of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar which was his first appearance since losing his son.
