Olamide aka Baddest guy ever liveth has been consistent this year with hits after hits rocking the streets and the airwaves in general, take for instance party songs like ‘Bobo’ and ‘Lagos Boys’ has been a regular topic of recent, and this time,
Apparently MTV Base earlier on named Olamide as the hottest Niger Artist for 2015,that is number 1 this year but However his  entire YBNL music gang including Lil Kesh who also made the list, Adekunle Gold and Viktoh, all making great music impacts this year. Nonetheless Olamide released 2 albums this year; ‘2 Kings’ the duo album with Phyno and ‘Eyan Mayweather’, a solo album later in the year. It was no surprise in the induction of new music revelations like Kiss Daniel and Koredo Bello in the list. 
But note that this list was compiled by some of the best minds in the music industry,  Oops like Omalicha, Do2dtun and Sade Ladipo. Also, showbiz entrepreneur Olisa Adibua, entertainment journalist Osagie Alonge, DJ Spinall and VJ Ehiz.
The panels
Commenting on the reason behind the selection, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Viacom International, Alex Okosi stated, “ Nigerian music has evolved from where it was ten years ago and with the aid of the panelists we have chosen, we hope that the Base Naija Hottest Artist 2015’ will spark up the kind of conversations we need among music fans, thought leaders and critics in order to improve on the type of music we put out there and produce some of the best talents globally and not just Africa alone.”
Making a surprise appearance at number 2 on the list was Wizkid who had a big year in 2015 with his single “Ojuelegba” getting remixed by superstar grime artist Skepta and American superstar, Drake. Davido sneaked in at number 3 ahead of Patoranking after a year that saw him tour extensively and release a hit collaboration with Meek Mill.
Yesterday’s number 2 and 3, Korede Bello and Yemi Alade dropped to number 5 and 6 on the final list after being displaced by Patoranking who made the list at number 4 after a year that saw him scoop several hit features and a bumper distribution deal with VP Records. Yesterday’s number 9 Harrysong drops off the final list alongside Cynthia Morgan to be replaced by Lil Kesh and Kiss Daniel. Making up the rest of the list are Burna Boy and Phyno at number 8 and 10 respectively.
Speaking after the panel session, Olisa Adibua remarked,“It was a very robust discussion and debate because there are probably 15 or 20 Nigerian artistes who had a decent chance of making it onto the list this year, but there were only 10 slots. I’m happy that MTV Base has created this platform not just because it promotes Nigerian music which obviously is a good thing, but also because it fosters a spirit of healthy competition. I’m sure that a number of artists who were perhaps a bit unlucky not to make the list this year will work their socks off next year to make it onto the 2016 list, and that is good news for all of us whether we are involved in the music business or we just like good Nigerian music.” 
TheNewly acclaimed MTV Base hottest artiste, Olamide commented on the announcement,
“It’s a great feeling to know that my work has made so much impact on Nigerians and i’m humbled by this announcement. Thank you MTV Base
