The Producer cum Artiste won the best producer of the year last year with his achievement on Bennylee’s hit single, Paper.
His breakthrough came last year when we was nominated for Best New Act and surprisingly won the category against all odds. The “Omo Alufa” crooner is expected to rule the industry this year.
Apart from being the fans favourite, he successfully hosted a industry night for his label, MSK Gang. With heavyweights like Skadoo Dance & Unstoppable ft. Kwest, it would have been a sin if not added to this list.
The Akure First Son has always been on top of his game. The Gogaga Concert was acclaimed to be the biggest musical concert in Akure, the state capital having a very large attendance. Apart from the concert, The song earned 3 nominations and it was indeed one of the most popular songs in the state, if not the most popular. Trends and publicity for a song as never been this good.
The most outstanding thing about this talented artiste is using just one song to trend through out a whole calendar year, Wangba also went ahead to win 2 categories at the last years awards.
Broke all records, won all categories he was nominated for. Claimed 4 plaques and topping all charts last year. Omo Mama Eleja, the EP was a success with a well organised listening party. Bennylee was the most versatile artiste last year.
