Top 5 Best Female Music Artistes in Nigeria

Some days back, we published a post on some of the best and most selling music artistes in Nigeria for the year 2019. Unfortunately, none of the female artistes made the list of five best selling artistes in Nigeria for the year 2019. It is worthy of note that it is not that the female artistes were not good enough in 2019. In fact, the type of fame that artistes like Teni, Simi, Yemi Alade and Tiwa Savage earned this year is fantastic.

So, in a spirit of correctness, we want to assume our first list was meant for the male artistes. We have come through with a list for the female artistes as well.

Find below in this interesting article a list of top five best female artistes for the year 2019. It is, however, pertinent to know that just like the best is never known and the worst is never seen. Our benchmark for evaluating the artistes that would make this list might not be entirely correct because we all have our opinions and we are entitled to it.

In essence, will not take responsibility for making anyone feel sad if your favorite female artistes don’t make our list. The list is not to humiliate anyone, it is for us to celebrate our people, we are all winners.


The first on our list is the favorite and delectable singer, Teniola Apata, popularly known as Teni. The plus-size singer came into 2019 with a fire that no one has seen or witnessed before.

Teni’s humorous character earned her a perfect spot in the mind of many people. Her crisscross dress and style made her the lover of both men and women. She is a firebrand singer. There is no doubt that the entire African race saw more Teni in 2019, we sincerely to see so much more of her in 2020.


The beautiful mother of one was all over the news in 2019. She first surfaced in the news after a rumor flew around that she was having a secret affair with Wizkid. The rumor was solidified through the release of the ‘Fever’ video by Wizkid. In the video, the singer was seen in a raunchy position with Wizkid.

Also, the former Mavins queen entered the news again when she exited the Supreme Mavins Dynasty (SMD) and signed a multi-million deal with Universal Music Record Label. The ‘Eminado’ crooner is no doubt one of the most talented female artistes in Africa.


Simisola Gold is her matrimonial name, Simi is her stage name. Many people do not want the singer to bear Simi Gold even after her marriage with Adekunle Gold – they believe the duo are running two separate brands.

Simi got into the news this year when she did a secret marriage with Adekunle Gold in January 2019. Many people do not know that the duo were having an affair until the news of their marriage came as a rude shock. The Joromi crooner is one of the best voices that Africa celebrates. There is a uniqueness in the voice of Simi that makes it very difficult to ignore her when she is singing, her voice surely commands attention.


Mama Africa as she is fondly called is one of the best female artistes in Nigeria. Yemi Alade featured Rick Ross in her single smash hit ‘O my Gosh’. Before now, there has never been any female artistes who have gone far as featuring big American artistes like Rick Ross.


Niniola Apata the elder sister of vocalist and song writer, Teniola Apata. The singer started her music career in 2014 and became viable in the industry in 2015. Subsequently, she was nominated most promising act in 2015 in the Nigerian Entertainment Award.

Ever since the singer became viable in the industry, the ladder of fame has not experienced any backward shift. Little wonder, she won the BET awards in 2017. Similarly, a part of her song ‘Maradonna’ was taken by Beyonce and were sampled on ‘Lion King’ the gift Album.
