Nigerian Artistes Without a Hit Song Includes Sasha P, Presh, 2shotz, K Switch...

Lami Philips
Lami is more popular on social media than on stage. She has been lucky to be invited to one or two not- so- popular gigs but even her performance at such gigs, isn’t earthshaking but almost boring.
Some may excuse her since her songs are mostly love songs and not dancehall; however, she has not been able to repeat what she did with her ‘Know’song, which kind of topped charts for a while. Some people feel that the song was acceptable because of MI’s input (she featured him in the song).The singer made her debut into the Nigerian music scene with the release of her debut album, Intuition, in November, 2009.
She may have felt featuring another known person in another song would earn her some kudos in her career but then, the Kotobata, which featured Olamide, made little or no impact in her career.
