Twitter is one place that has created a community for users of like-interest to meet and talk about the things they all share in common. Popular Nigerian singer, Lil Kesh, is currently trending and while a few things come to mind about this trend, the singer has been quite inert for a while now.
Lil Kesh won the hearts of many Nigerians with hits song like ‘Shoki’ which also bagged a dance move that is still a big deal in Nigerian mainstream music today.
However, it appeared that not too many people are talking about him anymore because he hasn’t delivered any hit in a while.
Naira Marley is yet to come close to Lil Kesh when it comes to hit…
Lil Kesh at his prime was unstoppable.

The Lil Kesh trend is one that has led fans of the artiste to remember the good old days when he was a great deal. A few of his fans referred to him and some of his tracks relating to their greatness in past and present tenses. Some users also compared the singer and his style of singing with newcomer singers as they pointed out that not too many newbies can get to the heights that Lil Kesh has attained from the start of his career.

Phenom was on his way to the top before he got pulled back by sickness.
Lil kesh never got serious with his career, Olamide tried his best for him. Lil kesh is good but his hustle spirit is nothing to write home about

Even though Nairamarley has taken over the Street
You can't deny the fact that this Guy remain the undisputed Prince of the Street after KingBaddo
From Lyrically to Shoki to efejoku to cause trouble
Every single was a hit Back to back
Follow I follow Back?

Many of his fans also compared him to singers like Naira Marley, Adekunle Gold, Zlatan Ibile, as they pointed out that Kesh stands far greater than most of them even as he is away from the music scene. These ones were also schooled for comparing the artist with artists that are still in the scene and have their names on the lips of many Nigerians.
Ishe by Lil Kesh is one of the most beautiful songs you'll ever listen to in your life.

If D'banj had signed Olamide back in 2013, maybe we wouldn't have heard Lil Kesh, AG, Chinko, Davolee, Fireboy etc. Also, maybe that would have been the beginning of d African YMCMB(D'banj as Birdman, Olamide as Wayne) pic.twitter.com/asU5X4hGcY

Lil Kesh could easily drop 5 Hits in a Year & Phenom was on his way to be the New Rap King in his Prime. https://t.co/MQm5yMzEgD

And of course, there is no mentioning Lil Kesh without calling Olamide, as some users expressed how he transformed the rapper into a star. However, some people were of the opinion that Lil Kesh isn’t star enough, as they shared that if he were star material, then his shine shouldn’t have been quenched so quickly.
