4. Razeezy Yahoc
Trap music is at the background of the Nigeria music industry as people rarely create this genre of music in this part of the world, as a matter of fact you can hardly point a trap musician in Nigeria. Razeezy Yahoc has been steadfast in creating trap music for his fans and supporters thus he deserves to be respected and supported. He has released a few songs this year but his most recent song ‘Radio’ featuring Aamen is dragging attention gradually and we hope his quota never goes unnoticed.
5. Sir Ray

Lerix might be new and young in the business but what he brings to the table is big and unique, his sounds are rare generally. Lerix combines trap music and afrobeat, his versatility is on a different level. His approach will ensure sustainable development in the Calabar music industry as more of his contemporary will work to raise the stake higher than him in the coming years. We pray he stays consistent and strong in the business.
