Spinlet is pleased to announce the release of its annual listing of upcoming music artistes who are likely to shape the industry in the coming year.

The Spinlet Sound of 2016 is a list compiled by popular artists, DJs,

industry executives, OAPs, club promoters and critics, and published

by Spinlet as a prediction of the biggest and most influential music

acts for the upcoming year. It’s aimed at showcasing rising stars and

appreciating their work so far. This year’s shortlist attracted

artistes from Abuja, Lagos and Port Harcourt.
Speaking on the selection process, Rotimi Fawole, Head of Business

Development, Spinlet said that, “the artistes are nominated by a panel

of music experts and the artistes with the most nominations from these

music experts make the list. These experts include OAPs, DJs,

Producers, Club promoters and music critics.”

“We looked to music experts who are the most genuine, enthusiastic and

passionate about good music and particularly, up and coming acts. Each

of our panellists then furnished us with a top 10 list of acts, which

in their opinion, were eligible for the Sound of 2016 list. We tallied

the nominations based on a combination of frequency and ranking. (So

an artist nominated twice or thrice and ranked number 1 would out rank

an artist nominated once for the same ranking, and so on and so

forth.) It was by this process of elimination, that we arrived at the

following list,” Fawole added.
