10. Ice Prince
Ever since he shot into stardom in 2010 with his Brymo assisted single – “Oleku” it’s been a one-way traffic for Ice Prince Panshak Zamani attaining milestones, winning coveted awards, inking endorsement deals.
With two albums and an EP under his belt, Ice Prince was announced as the Vice-President of Chocolate City Group in July 2015, the label where he started out just half a decade a go, a clear evidence of how well he has done for himself in his stint as a mainstream artist.
Ice Prince put out a body of work in January 2015, dubbed “Trash Can EP”. The project is made up of songs that did not make the final cut of “Everybody Loves Ice Prince” and “Fire of Zamani”. The J-Town representer also dished out some visuals from the EP.
Ice Prince was earlier this year featured on Power 105.1 Breakfast club, the first Nigerian rapper to achieve this feat. He also went on tour with US rapper Lil Durk, and performed at the Global Citizens Festival in New York. With news of a potential alliance with Jay-z’s Roc Nation filtering, Ice is on course to make an impression on the US market.
Ice Prince has been experimenting with new sounds lately, putting out songs with commercial potential. His latest single – “Boss” (produced by Tekno) is an evidence of this. Though the single was received with mixed reviews from fans and critics alike, it’s been doing well on the airwaves.
His third studio album “Jos To The World” is slated for release in the first quarter of 2016.
