The Lyrical Era Re-sprouts

Published

Fireboy x Joeboy

Among the several evolutions taking place in the Nigerian entertainment industry, the music sector has passed through many eras.
The 80s and 90s were filled with lyrically inclined songs, no matter the genre. Artists were known for their heavy lyrics, which appealed to people at that time.


Y2k birthed a new era of “very” commercial music; an era, musicians took little effort in writing as much as a themed verse.
A musician only needed to be intoxicated and equipped with the latest sound effects and a groovy beat to the awe of music lovers.
Some artists from the 90s adjusted to this trend thereby creating and expanding their fan base.


Then a pandemic happened; rebuilding tolerance amongst impatient music lovers who now had ample time to accommodate verbose lyrics due to idleness caused by the “stay at home” order in 2020.

Presently a song without meaningful lyrics won’t be a hit.
