Thenet.ng wants these 10 Nigerian artistes to retire from music ASAP.
Like they say, all good things must come to an end. For some of these artistes, the end has come for a few years.
Because we really like them and we don’t want the good memories we have of them to be tainted, we’ll like to respectfully recommend them for retirement. There’s no shame in that, is there?
1. Sound Sultan

4. Ice Prince

At this juncture, it is clear to the Kokomaster that he needs to pay more attention to his agric ventures and forget about music. There’s nothing to prove anymore- he’s not very good at making hits anymore.
9. Banky W
Thank God he knows how to direct now; perhaps it’s time to join Kemi Adetiba, and possibly feature in more movies. If that was good enough for Will Smith who left his somewhat lukewarm music career for Hollywood, then it’s most definitely good for Mr Capable.
10. Ill Bliss
The self acclaimed ‘Oga Boss’ who is only a boss at Capital Hill. Phyno has gone. Chidinma has gone. Even Suspekt has moved on. On behalf of Nigeria new school youths, we award you the permission to retire. Those two Headies plaque were retirement gifts in disguise, just in case you didn’t know.
