In a shorter note, Nigeria Music Industry is the Biggest and the most successful in Africa whilst Nollywood is also the Biggest and the Most Successful Movie Industry in Africa as well; this is something to be happy and proud about our entertainment industry.
Then on the International Scene Nigeria can be seen making waves on the international level with collaborations which included but not limited to Davido, Dj spinall, Patoranking, Wizkid, Sheyi Shay, Maleek Berry, Mr Eazi, Burna Boy etc. It can further be agreed that Nigerian Musical Acts has the most Popular International Collaborations in Africa.

Therefore, amidst the pandemic and the daily high number of cases on the rise, Nigerian Musicians are still keeping relevance by releasing singles and not just that, quite a number of Nigerian musicians have successfully released mind-blowing albums that are shaking the music industry and making waves till this very moment and thus has bring us to the topic, Music Albums that gave us happy moments in 2020; which are but not limited to:

Rema has made a name for himself already.
