Well as Guns ‘N’ Roses sang in one of their best hits titled November Rain,Nothing last forever!

Indeed the Nigerian music industry has been producing creative, talented, successful young and old artists that have not only won the heart of Nigerian but also Africans and different countries in the world. However, there are some of these great stars that have ceased to be. 

On THROWBACK THURSDAY today, we’d be informing on 5 once top stars who as lost their muscical, stardom and popularity. 


No doubt this Nigerian rapper can arguably still be classified as an A-list art not withstanding his inability of releasing new songs after his old hit songs faded away. After releasing one of Nigerian biggest hits of 2016 titled “Molowo Noni” which he collaborated with Tekno, ice Prince has gone missing in the music industry.


Not too long ago this artist was one of the biggest thing in the Nigerian music industry. After winning the popular Mtn project fame competition in 2008, Iyanya’s career was elevated above the roofs and was further more elevated above the skies with his then Hit song Titled “Kukere” The Kukere song was everywhere… Radios, clubs, parties and even in some Governmental dinners.
Iyanya currently is really really out of cash which is why he signed up in Don Jazzy’s musical label (Mavin’s record) Though his career is already dead, hopefully he ride back to his feet in the industry.


One would never forget to put Skales in the list of musicians who are trying too hard but no results… Talking about people who don’t know their real talent skales comes to mind. Though one of his album went viral but didn’t last for 6 months. We hope God lift him by blessing his musical touch.


She’s one of the best female musicians in Nigeria with really good vocals, one would ponder why Omawumi’s songs doesn’t get much buzz in Africa or in Nigeria. As sad as it may sound, We’re forced to conclude that this sensation’s career is dead and buried in the Nigerian musical industry due to her failure to drop hit song.


Who do we have on our list? It’s Dija of course! Mavin’s 2nd lady after Tiwa Savage…Well she’s here because she hasn’t been putting much effort in her career. We believe 70% of Nigerian doesn’t know any of her hit singles… The songs she did with Glo as one of their ambassador is even more popular than all her singles. Her career was a bit elevated when she collaborated with Patoranking in the hit song “Falling for you” Ever since madam is nowhere to be found.
Though, there are more artists that their musical career is dead and we hope those struggling to rise among them will get back on track.
