20 SongsTracks that took over people's playlist.Nigerian music hasn’t been the same it was decades ago. In recent years, the afrobeat and afro-pop sound has exploded, and many new school guys have gained entry, rocking the airwaves alongside bad-asses like and Olamide.

Almost everyday, new songs just troop in, and they’re always amazing. Some become hits, instantly, topping the charts and taking over playlists, while some are sleepers (they penetrate slowly). Unfortunately, some are just mild hits, while some, as good as they are (or were?), died from the release.

So far, here is a list of 20 songs that taken over people’s playlist, from last summer, till now…

– Baba (Ft.

This is arguably, Kizz Daniel’s biggest collabo, ever. Top boy, DJ Spinall teamed up with the former G-Worldwide singer, who was in a battle with his label, at the time of release and afrobeat god, Killertunes to make this banger. It became a hit, instantly, and a Video was released later. It’s not hard to find this track as people’s ringtones and callertunes. It’s actually one of the hottest singles of 2018. Download Mp3 DJ spinall ft Kiss Daniel Baba

– Issa Goal (Ft. Olamide,

Before “Issa Goal,” if you hear the name Naira Marley, you may think it’s just one yahoo boy that likes to spend. You may even wonder why he’s not using ‘Dollar Marley’. But, once that track dropped, everything changed for the guy. Having Olamide on your hook is something, and Lil Kesh on your track. A shaku-shaku song, it also inspired the Issa Goal social media trend. “Shanawole issa goal joor…” Download Mp3 Naira Marley Olamide Lil Kesh Issa goal 

– Legbegbe (Ft.Idowest, Obadice & Kelvin Chuks)

“Legbegbe” is one of the most popular shaku-shaku themed songs we know. That track alone, shot Mr Real to stardom, and made him one of the hot-cakes in the industry, then. , , even D’banj all caught the “Legbegbe” bug, and the guy.  Download Mp3 Mr Real Legbegbe

Davido – Nwa Baby

This is still one of the most trending songs in Nigeria (read: Africa), at the moment. Davido’s been hyper-active, this year, and this “Nwa Baby” is another banging record, that’s been topping everyone’s playlist for weeks now. Davido’s not just an artiste, he’s the biggest (save Wizkid.) Download Mp3 Davido Nwa Baby

– Malo (Ft. Wizkid, Spellz)

“Ma lo, joor oh, you gimme love I’ve never seen, yeah…”

Tiwa Savage is the Queen. Wizkid is the King. “Malo” is the hit. I think that explains everything! Download Mp3 Tiwa Savage Malo

2Baba – Amaka (Ft. Peruzzi)

At first, you’ll wonder what business Legendary 2Baba has with Peruzzi. But, “Amaka” is a classic pop record. Produced by Speroach (who also did Davido’s assurance), 2Baba once again reminds us of why he’s Nigeria’s greatest pop artiste of all time. This time, he puts on a next rated artiste, Peruzzi. But actually, Amaka disappoint me too oh. Download Mp3 2baba Amaka

– Posh

In 2017, Mayorkun was the Next Rated guy. Had a handful of hits, “Eleko,” “Mama,” “Che Che,” “Love You Tire” with Mr. Eazi and more. He’s attained that pop star level, and anything he drops should be a banger. Weeks ago, he came through with “Posh,” another afro jam, and it has been trending all over. Download Mp3 Mayorkun Posh

Olamide – Motigbana

Baddo is probably gearing up for a new album. So maybe he decided to just drop a couple singles before the LP arrives. In a week, he put out two bangers “Motigbana,” and “Criteria.” But, “Motigbana” has been trending more. “Motigbana” is that new afrobeat and dancehall marsh-up, and it’s a cool vibe. Very hot, RN. Download Mp3 Olamide Motigbana

DJ Kaywise – See Mary, See Jesus (Ft. Olamide)

DJ Kaywise is one of the few (not really few, tho) DJ’s that are making hit songs, and chopping the ‘Khaled Money.’ After his last year hit with Tekno and Falz, “Caro,” he pulled off a big one with Olamide, this year. Nobody enters the studio with Olamide and goes home without a hit. “See Mary, See Jesus,” thanks to other DJ’s that spinned it, and the major platform that posted it, was a major hit. Download Mp3 DJ Kaywise – See Mary, See Jesus

Kizz Daniel – For You (Ft. Wizkid)

When Kizz Daniel (formerly Kiss Daniel) left G-Worldwide, everyone knew it was the beginning of a New Era for him. A time when he could do collaborations with fellow artists. He jumped on Harrysong’s “Selense” and DJ Spinall’s “Baba,” for a start. Then, he dropped a super duper joint with Starboy, Wizkid. “For You” was produced by Philkeyz, who he’s signed to his label, Flyboi Inc. It’s a big banger, you know. Download Mp3 Kizz Daniel  For You ft Wizkid

StarBoy – Soco (ft. Wizkid, Terri, Ceeza Milli, Spotless)

I can say, “Soco” is the biggest song of 2018, so far. It was released early this year, and till now, it’s still one of the hottest tracks, in town. Wizkid put on his boys, and scored a big hit. Not a banger anyone slept on, at all. Download Mp3 Wizkid Soco

Wizkid – Fake Love (Ft. Duncan Mighty)

Over the years, Duncan who was a serial hitmaker around ’12, has attained that legendary status, every artist crave for. And, then, Wizkid brought him back on “Fake Love” to work that Port-Harcourt magic, for him. Think of what that Duncan x Wizkid energy will produce! If there’s any other thing except banger, that’s what it is. Download Mp3 Wizkid Fake Love

Olamide – Kana (Ft. Wizkid)

After dedicating a quarter of the year to shaku vibes, Olamide bounced back with a Wizkid collabo. When the snippet was posted, it was called Zombie. But, it was released as “Kana,” and yeah, it should get a “Collabo Of The Year” nomination. Download Mp3 Olamide Kana Wizkid

DMW – Aje

Davido wasn’t enjoying the whole buzz alone, he’s carrying his DMW crew along, too. Mayorkun, Dremo and the new kid on the block, Peruzzi. “Aje” was highly anticipated and it arrived a banger. Download Mp3 DMW Aje 

Davido – Assurance

A “Song Of The Year” nomination is quite sure. One of the best songs of 2018, Davido did this for his girlfriend, Chioma. “I am looking for a sister, Chioma my lover oh…” Davido actually made a hit out of a song for his woman. Bravo. Download Mp3 Davido Assurance.

Falz – This Is Nigeria

Think about Fela, if he was alive now, and imagine he’s a new school artist (a rapper), don’t you think he’ll be like Falz?

Falz, again this year, continues from where he stopped on “Wehdone Sir,” with a new one, “This Is Nigeria,” which addressed the ills of our society. In less than two months, the video hit 10Million views on YouTube. And it’s currently the most-watched rap video of 2018. What you call an icon living? Download Mp3 Falz This Is Nigeria

Tekno – Jogodo

Tekno reignites our memory of Mad Melon’s “Jogodo,” an old school song that was hot, back then. Being a producer himself, he knows how to create sounds that will wow listeners, and he did exactly that on “Jogodo.” Download Mp3 Tekno Jogodo

Jaywon – Saro

Like Amaka, Saro disappoint Jaywon too, and guess what? He made a hit record out of it. After such a long time away from the mainstream, Jaywon came back. Not just with any song. But a hit, not too early to call it a classic. Download Mp3 Jaywon Saro

Mayorkun – Bobo ft Davido

At the time he dropped it, “Bobo” was what Mayorkun needed in his life. A touch of Killertunes, Lush and TY Mix on the production, and a verse from Davido” changed the whole thing. “Bobo” was a mega hit, instantly. The video raked in thousands of views in few hours, and the song is by far one of the best Mayorkun stuffs, ever. Download Mp3 Mayorkun Bobo ft Davido
