few days ago I was discussing with my friend, of course our major discussion was on celebrities who are now upcoming artists, he mentioned someone’s name and I was almost freaking out, how can someone say D’Banj or Genevieve Nnaji is an up coming celebrities.

There are a lot of upcoming celebrities but definitely not this two people I mentioned above. In case you don’t know what means to be an upcoming celebrities, it means those celebrities who raising to stardom was not for a long time.
I will be discussing about five celebrities who never stay long in the lime light. I meant there moment of celebrity paparazzi was just for a moment, some of them were for a month, three month, three production or even two songs or less song hit.

1.Adesuwa Ewatomi

She happens to be one of the up super actress all of a sudden late 2016 till early 2017.
According to my findings, I got to know she has being acting for few years now, every movie she has acted has being a hit back to back.
From falling, to brave, the wedding party which was one of her high hit movies, this movie exposed her to the world.
She got engaged after the wedding party and since then we have being hoping and praying she come back into her normal state of fast pace, many of her fans are praying her case doesn’t turn out like Aphrodija.

2. Simisola Bolatito Ogunleye .

Her first song was “Thief ” the song was not really a hit song, many Nigerians didn’t really feel her existence, even though she has done some collaboration with Adekunlegold and praiz, she was just an occasional celebrities but we still did not know she was existing until she had a collaboration with falzthebadguy, from “Soilder go, to show you pepper, chemistry and lots more. She suddenly became a popular celebrity, she was all over the radio, TV, concerts and many more, and all of a sudden we have not heard anything that is a hit from her as of recent. Nigerians are used to having occasional celebrities anyways.

3. Nse ikpe Etim

A lot of people did not know her when she started, though I was her fan until I watched a movie of hers I found ridiculous, her hit movie was Mr and Mrs which she acted with Joseph Benjamin, the movie was a hit then I saw “the visit” and the last one I felt killed her career was purple hibiscus, I knew from the very day I watched that movie that Nigerians do not believe in most role she has played. The role she played was too awkward that I really can’t say if such too stupid scene should be acted.

4. Hadiza Blell, 

She is called Aphrodija, popularly known as Di’ja. She was a Marvin celebrity, in fact I’m a great fan of hers. The first song I saw her in was “Adaobi” a song which encompasses the presence of all Marvin artist, I heard “aww” which was a great hit song from her but since then I’m yet to hear anything about her celebrity life. I heard she is now married with kids, so I’m wondering if Marriage in Nigeria debar them from success?

5. Omawunmi

I used to be great fan and I still I’m .
Omawumi Megbele , born 13 April 1982 known by her stage name Omawumi, is a Nigerian singer-songwriter and actress of Itsekiri ethnicity . She is a brand ambassador for Globacom,, and Malta Guinness. She was brought into lime light when she came second in the Nigerian idol competition which was won by Timi Dakolo.
I heard few songs from her and few movies which was a hit back to back.
For several years now, I’m yet to see or hear anything about her celebrity life.
The interesting part of her celebrity history is that since she got married, we are yet to have much hit from her.
