South African musician Focalistic, along with three Nigerian singers Ruger, TeeZee, Ayra Starr and one Nollywood actor SomaDina have all been listed in Vogue UK’s list of musicians set to rule 2022.
The British publication put out a list of musicians we should know who “we’ll be hearing a lot more from over the next 12 months.” These artists were grouped into several fields, such as the Class of TikTok, African Giants, Alternative/R&B Pioneers, Popstars and Rockstars, and Rap Prodigies.
The publication wrote in a statement:
2021 was a memorable year for new musicians who burst onto the scene, ruled TikTok, and immediately dominated the conversation — artists like Olivia Rodrigo, PinkPantheress, and ArrDee who rose to fame with tracks released at its very start. It’s a reminder that the biggest star of 2022 may not even have recorded a song yet.
