All through the year Eazy Gist Media was quiet about Benue Acts, we sat and observed with sheer delight the progress some of our indigenous acts were making and then we snared in disgust as some churned out horrible punishments to the ears in the name of music.
After all has been recorded and performed and the Panel has settled down, this is indeed time to separate the real men from the children.
EazyGist Media presents her Benue Top 5 Artists of the year. Congrats to those that made it, you deserved it.
To those that didn’t, no apologies but your game needs to be stepped up.
There’s still another group that didn’t make it but only because this is a ” Top 5″ we recognize your hard work.
Enough said!!! Here is our Top 5.
5: DANNI VEMBS
The year 2015 saw Danni churn hits after hits, he even released an album which was a massive success and then our boy had to go for his youth service and some thought that was probably the end for him but Danni Vembs was not backing out, even though he wasn’t sent to Abuja as desired, Danni drop “Abuja is hotting” and it became a radio darling, he also did “deliver me” ft McDow amongst other cool tracks off that Album.
Its not so hard to see why Danni Vembs has clenched this NO.5 Spot, his music makes sense, he never rests!!!.

Meddy is the rave of the moment.
He is one Indigenous rapper that just can’t be ignored. This young Idoma champ has won quiet a number of awards and has shot some videos. Meddy is consistent with most of his songs produced by his friend and Label mate Double G.Of all his songs of 2015, “Okobo” seem to stand out most. The song which had powerful promotion and publicity is featured in most of the top Nigerian Blogs. Meddy’s talent is begining to get major attention from other top indigenous rappers in Nigeria. In fact Meddy is becoming fast friends with Phyno, tecno amongst other stars. There serious rumour going on that he is about to get signed by a major label. Meddy is our No4.
