For some people, it takes years to hit the spotlight, for others, lesser time.
This list is made up of artistes who hit the spotlight in no time due to one fortunate incident or another and, are today making us question our sanity as to their chameleon-like sound inability to make subsequent good music or, their outright MIA move.
For this list, we included artistes who are privileged to have recorded some hits, yet make us cringe whenever they announce new song release, and acts who won us over with their first or second records, but remain stagnant like a smelly puddle of contaminated water that refuses to dry up.
In no particular order, here are the artistes that are making us wonder why we allowed to ‘blow’ in the first place.
Yes, no doubt about it, he has gotten several charts success but somehow managed to find a spot on this list due to the mediocrity of his songs. Kcee manages to sound less unintelligent for every record released with cringe-worthy quotes and mumbo-jumbo catch phrases that make us wonder why we ever allowed him a place in our phones and head.
Hola Hola boy, watchu doing! When this young man first hit our airwaves, we thought, ‘hey, here is one who would never do wrong,’ if only we’d known. Since the release of his one hit record, Sugarboy has struggled to keep his name and head above waters even allegedly stooping low to being tagged a ‘thief’ with the song ‘KILAMITY, all to no avail. Despite the level of vigor unleashed upon bursting unto the scene, Sugarboy has without so much resistance joined the array of braggadocios acts the music industry is fervently working to be rid off, but….here we are. Dear Sugarboy, hasten up, we about to leave your corner, do something now!
Irregardless of his annoyingly repulsive credit card/identity fraud ‘izzues’, Dammy Krane is one fine artiste. He has, during his haydays given us records that although were sometimes offensive and vulgar, he did come through. However, he has managed to create a well of doubt in our hearts with his ebbing career. I mean, it’s okay to take a break or even a step back to reinforce, but absolutely nothing is cool with retiring completely and trying for a comeback with felonies and lame accusations, it’s just not cool. Dammy, you are like a painful boil gradually seeping pus, you want to be this? fine…just make sure you are that type of boil that heals but leaves a beautiful mark.
I mean, there is no other definition for reaching your lowest low in music other than starting to sing about food, like seriously Yamarita, boo !!!? Joe El sums this list up, truth be told. He is the reason we should never ever allow anyone, the celebrity status, until they prove themselves on every Why possible, TV, radio, street, social media, speaking, writing, just about every bloody thing.
It breaks my heart that Sean has to be included in this list, but hey, it is what it is. Y’all remember how bright the fire Sean was brandishing at the start of his career right? Yeah, that fire….somewhere along the line, not only did it burn out, it burnt off his persona and probably his skin? With just 4-years under his belt in the industry, Sean seems to have disappeared off of the face of music earth, struggling to be heard amongst a crowd he once had massive control over and reducing some of us into an emotional wreck whenever we come across any of his old materials.
He reminds us of the honeymoon season in every new relationship that does not last. We don’t want this of Sean, he is way too talented, fight baby, fight! We gat you, we just need you to fight!
