What makes a man a legend? What makes a man worth remembering? Everyone will be remembered by his friends and loved ones no matter how good or bad they were but why do some people get remembered for hundreds of years after their death by people who never actually met them? People who get remembered for such long periods of times are the legends who have done things that inspired generations and generations after his death. These 5 artistes are surely on their way to becoming legends as they have inspired this generation in different ways.
1. Tuface Idibia: Some already call him a legend, He is a gentleman to the core right from the days of Plantashun Boiz to where He is now, He has been nothing but legendary. His song African Queen was the first to be played on MTV Base, He has broken so many records and has so many hit singles and album. He is definitely on the road to being crowned a legend.
2. Darey Art Alade: Darey started out as a D.J at Cool Fm, then went on to Project Fame and got his big break as He came third in the competition. He won the 2006 Channel O Music Video Awards for best R&B Video in Africa. Darey was the main host of both the Gulder Ultimate Search and Glo Naija Sings reality shows in 2011 and in February 2013 He put together one of the biggest shows Nigeria, Love Like A Movie in February 2013 which had the red carpet hosted by Kim Kardashian. Darey has proved undoubtedly that good music still sells in Nigeria and He is the captain of that ship and that certainly makes him a Legend in the making.
3. Sound Sultan: Talk about consistency and relevance, that will be sound Sultan described in two words. He has perfectly guided His career over the years without any scandal. Passing conscious messages through his music has always been His style, never afraid to raise issues through his songs. He has now gone into movies and sponsoring a basketball team. He sure deserves to be called a Legend.
4. Don Jazzy: Don Jazzy might not be your everyday artiste and you might argue that he doesn’t deserve to be on the list since we are talking about Music artiste only, well truth be told, no matter how Don Jazzy wants to deny, He is an artiste because we all heard his voice loud and clear in the Tongolo song that gave him and D’Banj the big break they needed. Ever since then Don Jazzy has been the brain behind so many hit songs Nigerians have listened to. When He parted ways with D’Banj so many people wrote him off, but He set up a new crew and duly delivered. That is what legends are made of!
5. WizKid: Hate him or love him, this gentleman is surely on his way to becoming a legend! Pause for a second and look how far he has come with his career, starting from nothing at EME and growing into a global brand! With over 50 awards won, different brand endorsements and lots of albums sold Wizkid is surely a force to reckon with in the entertainment circles in Africa. He has inspired a whole lot of the younger generation to believe in themselves and never see age as a barrier! Wizkid is a legend in the making.
There are other names that should be in this list, names like D’Banj, Olamide, M.I, e.t.c but since I have spot for just 5 people, I had to let others go. These five are quite exemplary and unarguably the best at what they do and they inspire others to do same. They are our Legends in the making!
