Top 10 best 2022 songwriters in the Nigerian music industry


Brymo is undoubtedly the most talented musician currently active in the Nigerian Music industry. There’s no way around it at all,

Brymo is the overall best in music, having released a myriad of projects within the past ten years, there is actually no question about his songwriting abilities at all.

Listen to his “Yellow” album and see for yourself.

Tay Iwar

Tay Iwar is from Benue state and was raised in both Lagos and Abuja where he began creating music at the age of 14.

His style of music is exceptional with Afro-fusion that perfectly blends various elements from Classic RnB to Afrobeats


Simisola‘s first few years had her trying to make hits, and for quite a while she was kinda what you’d call underrated.

But all that changed after her 2016 ‘hook-up’ with Falz that birthed the “Chemistry” EP and the hit song, “Soldier.”

After that, she went to drop two number one albums, two years in a row. But it wasn’t just because her voice is nice, no.

Simi kind of has a way of putting words together on songs that stands her out from the rest and that’s just beautiful.



He’s the man. We’re talking about a guy that did “Baddest Guy Ever Liveth” and “Eyan Mayweather” just two years apart.

Did “Lagos Nawa” in 48 hours and followed up with “999,” just before releasing two of the critically acclaimed albums in a space of one year.

Olamide doesn’t sweat at all and it’s obvious. He’s got what it takes and he’s most definitely one of the best around.

Burna Boy

“Twice As Tall” alone automatically earns Burna Boy a spot on this list. Burna is so good he went in and created a Grammy-worthy album effortlessly. For Burna, it’s talent.

His songwriting skills are obvious on all of his projects, from “Outside” to “African Giant.” He’s definitely up there lyrically.

Adekunle Gold

Adekunle Gold is just too good. Three albums in and he’s still wowing us, He moved from R&B to alternative and all the way back to afro-pop.

It’s not even a question of whether he’s as good as the hype around him or not. There’s no doubt about that at all.

Fireboy DML

When Fireboy DML first came, he was so good lyrically people were saying he could murder rappers on a track. And it’s true.

Not to talk of the fact that he’s actually done it a couple of times. Fireboy DML creates iconic stuff and that’s on period.


This is definitely the one that will raise a lot of eyebrows. Well, before you say Wizkid only sings about women and whining, have you listened to “Made In Lagos” and “Soundman Vol. 1“? And when I say listen, I mean really listen to hear something?

Cause if you have, then you will know Wizkid‘s songwriting is top-notch. And what’s more, he actually writes all his songs.


The Blue-haired singer apart from his soulful voice is a songwriter who has written songs for various artists.

WurlD wrote songs for the American singer Mario’s upcoming album. He also is credited for writing Davido’s hit songs, “Blow My Mind”,Sweet in the Middle”.


Known as Huncho, Peruzzi is signed to DMW. His prominent skill is his songwriting and composing ability that earned him a spot in Davido’s DMW.

Peruzzi has more ten hit songs that are not owned by him to his credit.

He is the brain behind “Assurance, Nwa Baby, Fia, Amaka, Kpa, Demo, Doe, Risky” amongst others
