By looking at the projects they pushed out last year, the awards they received, and their track record of success, you can identify which musicians will be huge in 2023.

In terms of music, Willy Paul significantly pushed himself in 2022. In late November last year, he released the hit song “You,” which featured Nigerian artist Guchi. Paul also delivered a number of blunt messages to his fellow musicians last year, urging them to put more effort into their craft rather than pursuing fame.

Following his success the previous year, Willy Paul updated his rate card to reflect that he was now asking Ksh1.5 million for outdoor concerts, Ksh600,000 for club performances, and an astounding Ksh30 million to be a brand ambassador. If the event organizers can give Willy Paul the money he asks for, he will only be inspired to work even more in 2023.

Nyashinski

Nyashinski is the kind of musician who can go on a 10-year break from making music, but when he returns, he releases song after smash and takes over the charts. He has the talent to rival artists like Burna Boy, Davido, Wizkid, Diamond Platnumz, and others, but he is not pushing himself. The same year, with Nigeria’s Davido and Wizkid, South Africa’s Nasty C and Babes Wodumo, and Angola’s C4 Pedro, Nyashinski was nominated for an MTV Europe Music Award in the category of Best African Act. In 2023, Nyashinski can achieve success comparable to Grammy nominations if only he can develop a much better work ethic.
