Considering Fans, what they want and the current trend in the music industry are key factors in determining the kind of songs artistes will release and the genre those songs will fall.

This list takes a look at Artistes who started off a rap career as rappers but have since transitioned into singing, most of them combining rapping and singing together in their career.

1) Reminisce


Reminisce started his career by recording an hardcore rap album at ID cabasa coded tunes studio, which was never released.

Later he showed his lyrical prowess as an English rapper on 9ice’s bachelor and ever since featuring 9ice.

Alaga Ibile is one of the indigenous rappers who ushered himself into the music scene with hardcore rap lines that made us fall in love with him.

But it appears like his peer, Olamide he has also shifted grounds heavily and has gone into commericial singing and we think he’s been quite successful with it.

On a song he featured Olamide and Phyno, Reminisce made it clear that Punchline don’t pay the bills anymore and that street singing is what brings in the cash, a claim that Mode9 chastised heavily and called all three artists on the song jokers in a recent interview.

Reminisce’s rap prowess has been on the low and these days he sings way more than before. Reminisce’s two singles that have been dropped after his ‘Baba Hafusa’ album, Gboriduro and Kpomo further buttress our point that the artist has transitioned.
