Singer Bebe Cool has given an uncalled for verdict of last year’s winners in the entertainment industry. It is the norm that media houses publish who rocked and who sucked at the end of each year but this time Bebe Cool decided that is also an authority on the industry and came up with his own list.
He says 2017 was really a good year for the music industry because many musicians took shape and position in the industry while some old artistes exited due to the pressure of new talent putting into consideration the major changes in types of music/beats/fashion and interest of the audiences.

Ykee Benda: Superman, Eva, Malaika
