The process of making music can be quite intricate, with many creators making contributions to put together a song or project.

While there are those who focus solely on the art of songwriting, there are some gifted singers who have the exceptional ability to write their own songs and hardly seek help to compose a decent jam.

Artists who are skilled at songwriting usually have an edge over the ones who aren’t. They can easily write a song from scratch and deliver songs with quality lyrical content.

They also get to collaborate easily with several acts, using their songwriting skills to make an impression as well as give subtle ideas on the form a song or project should take.

These are the songwriters that are fully recognized in the Nigerian music industry;

Simi

Simi

Simi’s interest in music started when she joined the choir as a kid. She later pursued a career in gospel music before switching to being a secular artist. Her first hit single Tiff was highly commended for having powerful lyrics.

The endowed singer writes her own songs and has churned out extremely hot singles.

Brymo

Brymo

An alternative musician with a sonorous voice and unparalleled songwriting skills. His songs are mostly perfectly crafted with standard lyrics.

So far, Brymo has released six studio albums, with nearly all the songs written and composed by him. He’s a musical genius and is regarded as a respectable act in the music industry.

Tiwa Savage

Adekunle Gold

Darey Art Alade

Teni Makanaki

One of the most distinguished qualities of Teni is her unequaled ability to write and compose songs within a short period of time. With her constant freestyles, she has learned to become an expert at songwriting. She was responsible for writing Davido’s Like Dat as well as all her own songs.

Harrysong

Harrysong

Harrysong was originally a songwriter before he became a hotshot singer. He has written songs for different artists including Kcee. He has established a place for himself in the industry with his unique songwriting ability.

A little unusual, yes? Not many people are aware that this young Afropop act is exceedingly gifted when it comes to songwriting. He has contributed heavily to many DMW songs and projects.

Peruzzi

Peruzzi

Peruzzi’s most prominent talent is not his amazing vocals. It’s his natural flair for writing and composing. A skill he seems to have honed over time and is serving him well currently.
