We, SleekNaija, bring to you the Top 10 best songwriters in Nigeria 2022.
While some focus solely on the art of songwriting, some gifted singers have the exceptional ability to write their songs and hardly seek help to compose decent music.
Artists who are skilled at songwriting usually have an edge over the ones who aren’t.
They can easily write a song from scratch and deliver songs with quality lyrical content.
The special wordsmiths also get to collaborate easily with several acts, using their songwriting skills to make an impression as well as give subtle ideas on the form a song or project should take.
Top 10 Best Songwriters In Nigeria
Below are the top ten best songwriters in Nigeria that probably you may want to know.
- Adekunle Gold
His ability to captivate listeners, especially with his lyrics of love has been very outstanding over the years.
Releasing beautiful projects like “Gold” and “About 30”, he has proven to be a lead songwriter in the Nigerian music industry.
Adekunle Gold has the ability to create and depict beautiful scenery in the minds of listeners.
- Johnny Drille
Johnny Drille with his romance filled songs has stood his ground as the only (quote me wrong) country music act in Nigeria with his top notch self produced songs and lyrics.
Simi’s first few years had her trying to make hits and for quite a while she was kinda what you’d call underrated.
But all that changed after her 2016 ‘hook-up’ with Falz that birthed the “Chemistry” EP and the hit song, “Soldier.”
After that, she went to drop two number one albums, two years in a row. But it wasn’t just because her voice is nice.
Simi kind of has a way of putting words together on songs that stands her out from the rest and that’s just beautiful.
Peruzzi’s most prominent talent is not his amazing vocals. It’s his natural flair for writing and composing.
A skill he seems to have honed over time and is serving him well currently.
- Fireboy DML
YBNL latest signee has captured the hearts of his fans with his amazing lyrics on “jealous” and “What if I Say”.
Fireboy DML is indeed a talented Nigerian songwriter.
WurlD wrote songs for the American singer Mario’s upcoming album.
He also is credited for writing Davido’s hit songs, “Blow My Mind”, “Sweet in the Middle”.
WurlD also has written his own hit songs like “Show You Off”, “Mad”, “Trobul” amongst others.
Teni’s unrivaled ability to produce and sing songs in a short period of time is one of her most notable skills.
With her regular freestyle, she has honed her composition skills. Davido’s “Like Dat,” as well as all of her tracks, were co-written by the Next Rated award winner.
- Kizz Daniel
Kizz Daniel came out with his chart topping single WOJU even though his prior release, SHOYE didn’t give the push.
Consequently, he made hit after hit. He’s arguably the most complete artist right now as his album “New Era” shows the only thing better than his melodious voice is his amazing lyrics.
- Reekado Banks
Some of his works show he takes his song writing very seriously.
Some of his songs include: “easy (Jeje)”, “Dorobucci”, “Like”, “Adaobi”, “Oluwa Ni” etc.
In 2021, BNXN released his first body of work titled SORRY I’M LATE.
Buju has featured in several songs, and his songs have drawn many fans attention.
