Lyrically, 90% of Nigerian artistes sings rubbish and you know it.
They all sing to a danceable instrumentals, knowing that people (Nigerians) prefer songs they can sway on than songs with good lyrics. That’s why music Artiste like Brymo and Asa are not getting the respect and honor they deserve in the music industry. Those two doesn’t sing to entertain but to educate you. But it’s unfortunate that we Nigerians doesn’t value good music.
Alright let’s get started! Below are the list of worst Nigerian Artists lyrically. This doesn’t mean they’re not good in music. Of course they’re all professionals but wack lyrically.

Naira Marley & Zlatan Ibile
In a sane society, people like Naira Marley and Zlatan are not supposed to be called musicians. Judging by their songs lyrics, they’re not even supposed to get up to 100 views on any song they drop. In fact, they wouldn’t have blown.

Rema songs are like Indian Bollywood moviesbackground sounds. But that’s his style I guess, so no stress. But hey his songs lyrics are terrible.
