However, it seems lately he creates music and sounds not so familiar to many Nigerians anymore, thus the reason for constant criticism.

Top trending Akon songs in 2019 to add to your playlist
“V” is an emotionally empowering album that sees Asa releasing herself to so many emotions and admitting that love comes with its flaws, but this doesn’t make it less desirable.
The album produced a couple of hit songs which are 'Show Me Off', 'IDG' ft. Wizkid and 'Mayana'.
'V' is on our list of one of the best 2022 Nigerian albums because it has a good replay value, and the artistry on the album is commendable. It is not as powerful as Asa’s first two albums, but it is definitely better than 'Lucid' her 2019 album.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng recalls doing a special on the growth of the Nigerian music industry globally at the moment is untenable, and leading that charge globally is Afrobeat.
The Nigerian sounds have gradually displaced Reggae, reggaeton, and dancehall as the party starters and club music across the globe.
