Top 10 Richest & Best Music Producers In Nigeria

Nigerian artists have gone international and global,but what makes a good song?
What actually makes a song to be a massive hit? Is it the beat of the song? Or the lyrical content of the song? Or perhaps its just luck,well whatever your guess maybe,it doesn't change the fact that music producers are totally indispensable when it comes to making music,I mean lets just face it,without a beat there will be no song right?

Truth be told,most music producers are not popular or have the fame that the artists they produce the songs for have,they work behind the scenes except for a few that has successfully transitioned into musicians too.

But that doesn't affect the fact that most of this music producers are quite bankable,they make a lot of money,here is the list of Top10 Richest And Best Music Producers In Nigeria.

1.Young Jonn

It's young Jonn the wicked producer!! 

Being wicked doesn't pay,but for young jonn,its paying off lol.
He is one of the hottest music producers of 2016 going into 2017,he gained steam in 2015 and ever since he has been dishing out and producing hits after hits.

In 2016 he bagged he the Producer of the Year award at the #Headies2016, he is also Notjustok hottest producer in Nigeria for the year 2016.

He has produced hits for artists like YBNL gang members Olamide and Lil Kesh,9ice, Dammy Krane, tKiss Daniel.

Remember Kiss Daniels ''MAMA” that was a massive hit that racked up to 1.8 million downloads,he was behind that feat.

2. Shizzi 

One of the most prolific music producers in Nigeria,infact Davido and HKN Gang's success in dishing out hot jams should he credited to him.

He has a way of producing the right sounds and beats for can make a song become an instant hit.
The downside of this is that Shizzi mostly produces songs for HKN Gang members but regardless he always delivers.

Remember Gobe and Skelewu? That was Shizzi, he was the one behind those hit jams.

What about Davido and Dammy Krane’s popular song “IZZUE?, what about Gbagbe Oshi by Davido? It was still cooked by Shizzi!
He has also worked with May D and Wizkid.

3. Pheelz

Pheelz Mr Producer!!

Just like how Shizzi is holding down the HKN Gang, Pheelz is also keeping it one hunnid for Olamide’s YBNL Gang.

This dude right here has churned out hits after hits for Olamide and YBNL.
Olamide’s in house producer can be credited for songs like Durosoke, Rayban Abacha, Baddo Love etc.

He has also worked with Vector, do you remember Adekunle Gold‘s “Gold” classic album? That was Mr Pheelz.

What about Olamide baddo  “Eyan Mayweather” album?
That was Pheelz Mr Producer!!

4.Tecno Miles

Alahaji Tecno!

He has been around the block for quite some time now and has been producing hits after hits, remember this songs Pana? Diana? Wash?

He is one of the most versatile music producers in the country,he makes his own beats and make hit tracks out of them.

What about one of this years raving jam 'IF' by DAVIDO?
It was produced by Alahaji Tecno!

5. Maleek Berry

Hardwork surely pays, do you remember this song that was a massive jam in clubs and radio stations by sauce kid ft Davido,or rather Sinzu ft Davido titled Carolina way back in 2012?.

It was produced by Maleek Berry,I was busy dancing to the song not even knowing who was behind its production.

Maleek Berry,the british raised music producer is signed to Wizkid's StarBoy Entertainment and he has produced some good tracks.
Apart from Tecno and a couple of artists,its actually not easy to be an artist and also a music producer,it requires exceptional talent to be able to combine both trades.

Maleek however is one of those artists that has managed to be a music producer and a regular commercial artist.
Last year in 2016 he released a track ''Kontrol'' ,then “Let Me Know” which is receiving a fair amount of airplay.

Wande Coal’s 'My Way' was produced by Maleek, some of his recent productions include Bounce ft Wizkid & Phenom and Wande Coal’s latest single Kilaju.

6. Legendury Beatz

Two is better than one innnnit?? 

The duo producers signed to Wizkid's Starboy Entertainment are one of the best producers in the game.

These guys are good at what they do no doubt,flash back to Wizkid’s 'Azonto' song.
Ok What about the EME All star album with the single, Baddest Boy.
Remember Star Boy Wizkid single Caro? That was produced by Legendury Beatz .

They have also worked with some A listers in the music industry Brymo, Chidinma etc

7. Masterkraft

As I was writing this list some of my friends were busy saying that Masterkraft should be among the Top 3 with Don Jazzy,well it is my own list o,they can go write theirs lol.

Anyway Masterkraft is a music production genius and according to some articles online he is Don Jazzy's biggest competition.
He is a top notch music production artist no doubt and he has been consistent.
He churns out hits after hits on a yearly basis.

Let me refresh your memory,remember Phyno and Olamide’s song 'Fada Fada' that was on constant replay through out 2016, what about Kiss Daniel’s “Jombo”?

Ok lets take it back, lets say back in 2012 he had an impressive record of producing hit songs in Nigeria and Africa,in 2012 he produced Kwarika (Remix) by Flavour ft Fally Ipupa ,Girl by Bracket ft Wizkid and Chinny Baby by Flavour and a number of songs off the EME all star album.

This songs were loved across africa,ok what about Fine lady by Lynxxx ft Wizkid that broke a Youtube record.
Masterkraft is definitely one of the best music producers in Nigeria.

8. Don Jazzy

Don Baba J!

Definitely one of the richest and best music producer in Nigeria and one of the first that exported Nigerian songs and beats overseas.

Way back when the Mo’hits brand was still an item,and back when he was still kicking it with Wande Coal,D'banj to their separation and the formation of Mavin Records and the signing of new talents and artists like Koredo Bello, Tiva Savage etc
Remember that international massive hit song titled 'Oliver Twist' by D'banj with appearance by Kanye West, Big Sean etc, it was produced by Don Jazzy,do you also remember ' the kick' by Wande Coal? What about half of the songs on that classic Tiwa Savages first album? It was all Don Jazzy's work!

His record label Mavin Records is one of the biggest and most successful record companies in Nigeria and he has continued to harness young talents and make money out of it.


Beat By Sarz!!
Definitely a maker of club bangers! He is one of the best and bankable Nigerian music producer.

He has produced a lot of hit songs and has worked with almost all of Nigeria's notable song makers.

Remember Wizkid's hit single Jaiye Jaiye? That was sarz!
He calls his beat, 'Beat of Life' (Samba).

10. Sess

Problem Kid!

Personally I think if any upcoming artist wants to blow in the Nigerian music industry that is very competitive, you should definitely affiliate yourself with a good music producer that can produce dance able club jams.

Sess has now become Falz in house producer and has produced a lot of hit tracks for Falz d bad guy.

Remember 2015 album “Stories That Touch” and the 2016 joint-EP with Simi, “Chemistry“,it was cooked by Sess.

He has also been credited with “Bahd Baddo Baddest” by Falz  Olamide and Davido.
