How to blow as a young Nigerian musical artist

Are we the only ones to notice that BNXN and Ruger only fight when one of them wants to drop some music?

With new music falling left and center these days, Nigerian artists are doing the most to grab our attention these days.

If you think the fights are awesome, wait until you read more ways Nigerian artists are making us listen to their music.

Pretend to be the best in the game so fans can compete

Wizkid did it, Davido does it once in a while, and Burna Boy does it every three to five working days. Claiming to be the best, knowing full well that your career is built on autotune, is a sure way to entice all the stan bands to come and defend their favorites. By trying to insult and drag you, they will eventually give you the visibility you need.

Look for other artists to fight with because violence is sweet

If there are two things Nigerians love, it’s amibo. To capture our attention, you have to combine the two in style, and the only way to do that is to cause drama by making fake fights on the TL. From the fantasy fight of Victony and Omah Lay to the monthly fights of Buju and Ruger, everyone is doing it. Climb on board!

Pray and fast for a messy tweet from your past to appear so you can be temporarily canceled

Undoing has become one of the quickest ways to blow your mind. The moment the internet decides to drag you down as Tiger gen based on something you said or did, everyone starts trying to get the gist of it. Before you know it, you’ve become a hashtag and people are starting to stream your music out of curiosity or spite. Doesn’t make sense, but I guess that’s what it is.

Ask Korty if she has free time to accompany you

Korty recently said she’s the goat of YouTube, and if all that African giant stuff worked for Burna Boy and won him a Grammy, then yeah, sister, talk your shit! As the goat of YouTube and Gen Z content creation, Korty should also be on your “How to Blow” list. Make a video with her, pretend you’re in some weird shit like cooking based on astrology, and watch the internet devour you like plantain.

Visit the nearest MFM for Anointing and Night Vigil

It doesn’t matter if your song is about how all the power belongs to someone’s bum bum, you still need the support of the Holy Spirit to keep your song blowing. Remember, what God cannot do does not exist. Find the nearest Bible Church and start kabashing as soon as possible!

Backflip and summer jump until you find a viral dance move

Having a great song is important, but having a viral TikTok dance is important. Chat with the Gen Zs running the world right now.

Post a chat screenshot of how you got a feature

Do you think it’s easy to have people like Wizkid or Olamide on your song? You need to power everyone up with screenshots of these icons telling you that you’re the next big thing. You need us to know that you are not on our level.

Post screenshots of your Apple Music and Spotify charts

Otherwise, how will people listen to your music if you don’t show them that other people listen to it too? Quick math, bro.

Post a photo or video of yourself in the studio

As an artist, you have to remind everyone that the grind didn’t start today. Before dropping off your album, a dimly lit studio shot or video filled with smoke everywhere is mandatory for the TL. The best caption to go with this post? “Something is cooking *insert flame emoji*”
