It has been all about the world cup! The football competition which is underway in Russia has snatched the attention of everyone and dominated mainstream media.
Since its kick-off on June 14, the competition and other things related has remained a trending topic on Twitter NG. The fuss is so great that the BET Awards which favoured Nigeria’s own pop star Davido in the Best International Act category failed to out-trend the games.
The recent victory of Nigeria’s national team “Super Eagles” in the game against Iceland has perhaps caused the frenzy to rise to high proportions. The craze may even hit higher notes if the Eagles defeat the South American soccer giants Argentina in a game that scheduled for 7 PM today (June 26).
Dear artistes, please don’t bother putting out new music or an album until the #WorldCup is over.
Visibility will be likely poor because the interest of many is directed towards football.

As this writer rightly noted at the start of the competition, Nigeria is a football-crazy nation and the world cup will buy-over the attention of the masses, therefore, other forms of entertainment will be of secondary interest including music. Since the start of the global football competition, a number of solid records have been received, but as you guessed, they received poor visibility.
Nigerian international pop star Wizkid and UK rap heavyweight Skepta released their first solo collaboration, Maleek Berry dropped his first single for 2018, Kizz Daniel and Wizkid blessed fans with their long-awaited collaboration, Ill Bliss enlisted Olamide for a new hip-hop joint etc.
