While many claim 2017 saw the breakout of no new artists, the likes of Small Doctor and Idowest who enjoyed immense acclaim for their street anthems beg to differ. With records like Penalty, Shepeteri, Legbegbe, Wo and My Body, the resurgence of the streets emerged and the position it once looked like Lil Kesh was going to occupy for years presented possible heirs to the throne in Zlatan, Idowest and Slimcase as Kesh has slowly strayed from the music that established him.

As a result, Idowest signed with Dammy Krane’s Worldstar record label which is affiliated with DMW and has slowly begun to get looks from the hottest label in the game at the moment. With a performance slot at Davido’s 30 BG concert to cameos in the Shepeteri video which was directed by Dammy Twitch who is also closely associated with DMW, Idowest is eating good right now and it’s only interesting to see how he builds on it.
