5. Last on our list is Alpha P by name Princewill Eromosele and youngest on our list but least known by most of you but here’s a shocker because if you know Rema you should know Alpha P because they started together as a duo by name RnA but it seems Rema was more lucky and met Dprince and gave us all he had in 2019 but Alpha P hasn’t yet, but him being signed to Universal Music Nigeria has really pushed him lately with his Ep ” King Of The Wolves” and single Paloma which is getting high rating and streams currently, so Alpha P 2020 is a hit.
