The Wizkid owned record label do not have very much artists signed to it, the label can actually be said to be with two artists only which are L.A.X and Wizkid himself although there are many other music producer signed to the label though.
The Extreme music label may not be as popular as others but it has the currently trending Nigerian star R&B singers signed as artists. The label is home for artists like PRAIZ,SIMI and not very popular SAMMY. The label really tried for their artists this year with production of many songs and music video. The label is gradually becoming Nigeria’s home of R&B.
The Honorable Kings of New-school record label owned by the OBO himself is can actually be said to have make some impacts in the industry this year. Even though we can only mention two active artists signed to the label which are B-RED and Davido himself. They both made hits this year. So they should definitely make this list.
