The 8 Over-Rated Nigerian Artistes (With Pictures)

The word “Overrated” is defined as “having a higher opinion of someone or something than is deserved.”

After studying the Nigerian music scene, MediaHoarders brings you this list of 8 Over-Rated Nigerian Artistes.

These artistes, (some old, some new) are often given so much credit, but a closer look at their works will reveal to you that hype outshines talent and acclaim is founded mostly on media exposure and sentiments.


There’s no denying that the following artistes are popular and successful but do they really have the X factor?

And even if they do, is it being applied?

After making my observations and opinions (sometimes scathing) known, I’ll leave you to decide and probably correct me, if you have a different opinion about these music stars.

8. Darey

Dare Art Alade – popularly known as Darey – is a Nigerian singer-songwriter, and Idol series judge.

He is the son of the renowned Nigerian entertainer, Art Alade.

I had high hopes for Darey, really high hope, and my hopes were dashed.

He has an impressive voice but doesn’t seem to take chances. Consistently churning out generic and simple tracks that sound like a cover or rip-off some singer’s classic album.

I don’t know if it’s because he did someone’s cover once but I don’t get an originality vibe from Darey.

Failed time after time to really deliver.

Timi Dakolo is doing what everyone hoped Darey would do years ago.
