Top 5 Upcoming Yoruba Rappers That Will Take Over The Music Industry, No 5 Will Shock You!

There is a new crop of upcoming Yoruba rappers who are ready to snatch the throne from Olamide aka Baddo. These guys are tenacious and very skilled.

The rappers on this list will surely be mega stars in a few years from now. Hip Hop Head is going to list them and give a brief preview. Do not forget to drop a comment and share this post. Also remind us about any name we have left out of this important list.

1. Yung Lord

Yung Lord

He is a new Yoruba rapper who really knows his stuff. He is gaining more ground in the music industry with each release.

At his age, there is still a lot he can do. With his potential, the sky is the limit for him. He is getting much hype daily.

He has the looks of a super star. In Nigerian entertainment, sometimes the charisma matters more than the talent. Guess what? He has both.

He Already has full support from his record label “Jamika Entertainment” which gives him a lot of potential fans.

2. Ola Dips

Ola Dips

This upcoming Yoruba rapper has had a hood year in 2017. But he has more to offer than the publicity he is getting. The rapper is known to be very sleek and coordinated. We expect 2018 to be his breakout year.

His full name is Oladipupo Olabode Oladimeji fondly called “Omo Iya Aje“.

3. Trod


He announced his venture into the Nigerian music industry by making a statement of intent. He did it with just a few menacing words:

“I’m coming for my brothers throne, I want the crown back”

You might be asking “who is Trod?” He is the younger brother of the late Dagrin. Now you know his angle, you understand where he is coming from. However such statements need to be backed up. So far we have no concrete information on him. But if he truly has Dagrin’s DNA, then he’s one of the top upcoming Yoruba rappers everyone needs to watch out for.

4. Davolee


Olamide has a good ear. He knows how to invest his money by signing fresh Yoruba rappers like Davolee. The artiste put pent to paper on a deal for YBNL. Davolee has also dyed his hair golden. The young Ikotun rap artiste is a great story teller and he demonstrated that on his festival bar.

Davolee is known to command any song he steps on and this was no different. However with no hit singles in 2017, YNBL and fans of fresh Yoruba rap alike are a bit disappointed.

5. Sultan


Sultan is the youngest kid on the block. I first heard him on cypher when he was 13 in 2017. He is a funny and sarcastic rapper. He reminds me of 2shots and Big Lo. His mind works really well and his brand of rap is the exact kind of rap selling right now. He is one of our top upcoming Yoruba rappers, however needs to put a media campaign together.

He needs to push his work outside Lagos in order to expand his brand. Child stars must brace up for a competitive music career. And that advice is for Sultan.

He Already has full support from his record label “Jamika Entertainment” which gives him a lot of potential fans.

Though he’s still just 13 as at 2017, now is the time for him to breakout. Nigerians have a way of forgetting artistes. Time waits for no one, especially in the Nigerian music industry.
