Best songs from Nigeria: The hits that the Nigerian music scene continues to produce continue to have an impact on the West African area, the continent, and the entire world.
With notable albums from musicians like Tems, Aya Starr, Burna Boy, and Rema as well as important alternative releases, this year continued the nation’s record of prolific musical creation. The top 5 songs to come out of Nigeria so far this year are listed here in no particular order;
Kizz Daniel, Tekno ‘Buga’
Both Kizz Daniel and Tekno are featured in the hit song “Buga “‘s” music video. It is equally vibrant and lively as their incredibly alluring melody.
Last Last Burna Boy
Burna Boy experienced significant success after the release of his new album, Love, Damini. The African Giant made his directing debut with the release of the single “Last Last,” which came out a month before the release of his widely awaited sixth studio album. The song uses a sample from Toni Braxton’s smash hit “He Wasn’t Man Enough For Me” by American R&B singers. It is simply a taste of what the renowned afro-fusion artist will be presenting to fans this summer.
Davido ‘Stand Strong’ ft. Sunday Service Choir
Davido, a Nigerian hitmaker and the head of DMW, made his long-awaited comeback to the music industry with a brand-new song named “Stand Strong.” Davido’s new single features The Samples, the band responsible for American rapper Kanye West’s Sunday Service concerts. The song is his first single to be released on the market this year. It serves as a track from his future Studio Album project as well. It was made by hit maker and producer Pheelz.
LADIPOE ‘Big Energy’
The Killertunes-produced summer anthem “Big Energy” by Nigerian rapper Ladipoe contains glistening synth arpeggios and is dripping with swagger and arrogance. In my opinion, “Big Energy” is an actualized Providence EP byproduct. If Providence represents timely preparation for impending occurrences, then “Big Energy” represents the sensation you have when those events really transpire. We didn’t come this far to come this far, the song’s final line, which I comment, exactly expresses how I feel.
Pheelz ‘Finesse’ ft. BNXN
Former Nigerian producer turned rapper Pheelz just unveiled the music video for his first single, “Finesse,” which features BNXN. In this Director K-shot music video, he is shown throwing cash around a mall as he announces his agreement to Warner Records.
