Like I said couple of years back Naija music has improved seriously though it’s now like the Nollywood of those days where a movie is released everyday and 3 times on Sunday. To stay relevant in the Nigerian music scene you have to release a 7/10 rated single every other day or feature in the song of an A-list artist (my opinion). I have not listened to too many songs but the ones I have listened to I listened to them a lot.
For the first time in about 3 years I am going to start my top songs of the year without Olamide Baddo headlining the list. He didn’t even make the top 5 of my list but trust me he’s still my favourite Nigerian rapper and not that he didn’t drop tight jams this year, he has done well this year and for someone that has released an album every year over the last 5 years, he oozes consistency.
Here are my top 16 songs of 2016:
16. Soweto Baby – DJ Maphorisa ft Wizkid
15. OLUWAni – Reekado Banks
14. Ohema- DJ Spinall ft Mr. Eazi
13. Skin Tight – Mr Eazi
12. Finally – Mastercraft ft Flavour and Sarkodie
11. Emergency – D’banj
10. Konkobility – Olamide
9. Pray for Me – Darey ft Soweto Gospel Choir
8. Reggae Blues – Mr Songz ft Olamide, Orezi, KCee & Iyanya
7. Fada Fada – Phyno ft Olamide Baddo
6. Hollup – Mr. Eazi
5. MamaCita – Tinie Tempah ft Wizkid
4. Oya Come Make We Go- 2Baba ft Sauti Sol
3. Ja Won Laya – Ill Bliss ft Reekado Banks and Mr. Eazi
2. Pana- Tecno
1. Hola Hola – Sugar Boy
As always I expect this list to be rubbished (lol) but these songs always got me going.
Thanks for reading guys and have a prosperous 2017 filled with favour from the ALMIGHTY. Don’t forget to attack the comment section to have your say. BLESS !!!
