Research firm, Research 8020 recently conducted a survey to identify some of the musicians who enjoy the most influence in the country and the results were in many ways eye-raising.
Some of the best-rated songs typically came from artists whom fans love and love to hate altogether, including the most judged artist in the country at the moment – Willy Paul.
It does not take rocket science to realise Pozze knows how to stir the pot and his latest song Alkaida proved he was not everything except a gospel star.
Regardless of his rogue nature in the gospel scene, Willy Paul enjoys some fair share of success from an overall music perspective as the survey identified his song I do featuring Jamaican star Alaine as one of the most popular songs of the year.
This is despite the fact the song is almost 20 years old, and there have been other hits through that period. In addition, his collaboration with another Jamaican Cecile, despite the heavy criticism, is also not performing very badly in the charts.
Another surprise inclusion in the list of the best performing artists by song is none other than the buoyant mother of five Akothee. Apparently, her song Sweet Love is also doing very well despite being years old by now, and fans are still curious to see how she juggles music and her businesses.
Boyband Sauti Sol still hold the record for being the most sought after artists in the country with their song Melanin still making waves in the music scene.
One interesting bit about the top performing artists is the fact that majority of the best performing ones have been marred by some form of controversy in the year.
