And it is worthy of note that a new generation of notable entrants and personalities of the Nigerian entertainment scene will soon surface from this great institution
We have been counting down the top acts in the university at the moment; those who have successfully made efforts worthy of notice, those we all know have made beautiful music in school and impacted the highest, those who are trending and always known to shut down public events/shows within the university.

Taking all the factors mentioned above into consideration, the TRENDKINGZ BLOG team would help you find out who they are. A lot of acts have been impressive, however, for the sake of putting together a list some names will inevitably not make it.
Before starting off this list, we would love to appreciate everyone that has contributed in one way or the other to support this project. And secondly we would also love to appreciate some names who have being in the Institutions music scene and were not able to make is to this list, either because they graduated before the year of review and other reasons, we see you as the school’s musical legends.
The list excludes battle MC’s and Gospel acts. Their list would come separately in due time
While most would argue that Babayanks is still rising, I’d say he’s ‘fast rising’ and one of the talked about acts last year…so far. he’s shown some level of consistency over time. The Computer scientist can be reached via social media on: Instagram @babayanks05
Some has made their efforts speak for them, others have had both swag influence and efforts do the talking. But as popularly opinionated, the only place with plenty of room for everyone is the floor and as you climb higher the walls get thinner.
So who has successfully made efforts worthy of notice who do you think has made beautiful music in school and impacted the lives of many with their magical tunes??
Who is trending??
From number one down to ten who deserves a spot??

The basic idea behind Urban Lifestyle Fest is to create a platform for networking within the emerging music industry and Hip Hop culture in the northern region of Nigeria. The festival provides a 3-way point of contact involving the artist, the audience and the business reps (investors, record companies, management agencies and major influencers of the Hip Hop culture).
The artists get to have an ample amount of time to intimately engage their fans and put up a show that can convince potential listeners to subscribe and investors or businesses to acknowledge or make a move in their direction. About 20 artists will be gracing our stage this year with the best of Hip Hop music in Nigeria.
