In this week’s Celeb Watch, Nigerian artists continue to travel around the world living the ultimate superstar dream, from international shows to guest appearances and even album releases.
Nigerian artists have since sold out stadiums all over the world and even in non-English speaking countries as their songs have gone global, thanks to social media and various streaming services.
This development has made the growth of Nigerian artistry rapid and very lucrative. Nigerian artists are even getting management from international music labels.
They are known to the international community and are now doing collaborations with artistes from all over the world.
