Joshua Iniyezo, the Nigerian singer better known as Solidstar, has argued that he is the “best artiste in Africa”.


In a series of posts on his Instastory, Solidstar contended that a lot of artistes have been doing the same music for decades.

The singer, however, did not provide evidence and statistics to back his claim as “African best artiste”.

The Delta-born musician also teased his upcoming project, adding that African singers should “learn from me”.


“All these musicians, artists plus their writers are not my mate musically normally, in the whole of Africa,” he wrote.

“King of High life, King of High life, you can’t even switch it, same shit, same vibes for decades.

“I will teach you High life and Amapiano in my next release, make sure you learn.


“Grow through what you go through. Be unstoppable.”

In 2019, Solidstar recounted how he nearly lost his life from a drug overdose.

“There is a thin line between life and death. The incident showed how fragile I am by the overdose use of drugs that led to me bleeding in an attempt of a couple of thought process,” he had said.

“Sincere apologies to whomever I might have hurt ‘but hey love is the sweetest and slowest form of suicide.”


In 2010, Solidstar released ‘One in a Million’, his debut album. which went on to become a huge hit.

He has put out four more albums since then. They are ‘Grace$Glory’, ‘W.E.E.D’, ‘Solidstar’ and ‘The Light’.
