Meanwhile, the Nigerian music industry is no doubt blessed with a number of talents but three of them that seem to have stood out more than the rest are Wizkid, Davido and Burna Boy.
With these three holding the top spots, their fans always seem to be at loggerheads on social media as they keep fighting over who is best.
It is not strange to see fans of these artistes arguing on social media about who should be number one and Legit.ng recently organised a poll for its readers to make things easy for them.
