    On April 22, 2010, the Nigerian music world/country as a whole lost a great legend, Olaitan Oladapo Olaonipekun a.k.a. Dagrin. After a gruesome car accident, he passed away.

    This traumatic event spawned a song, which went on to become Nigeria’s most popular tribute song.

    Artists such as Eldee, Sheyman, Reminisce, Durella, Banky W, Waje, Omawumi, Ruggedman, Lord of Ajasa, Posley, and others collaborated on the song ‘Tribute To Dagrin.’ For months and years to follow, the Hip Hop-based ballad topped charts and hearts.

    This song is dedicated to four University of Port Harcourt students who were killed by a mob on October 5, 2012. The horrible occurrence elicited a variety of reactions, but MI’s effort stands out.

    You could hear the hurt hidden in the words in between M.I’s inquiries for everyone concerned, the society’s tolerance for such sins, and the dark mood set from the beginning of the song brought to the fore with spoken-word-style narration.

    Many hearts and earphones couldn’t thank Tiwa Savage enough for recording a memorial song for all the great we’ve lost over the years.

    With this song, Tiwa gives a whole new meaning to tributes, and the video for the same song is nothing short of heavenly.

    To this day, the song is one of the few that both young and old can sing word for word… Let’s just say Tiwa brought her A-game on this single with her voice.

    Burna Boy has garnered fans thanks to his songs which are either love themed or talking about a socio-political problem facing Africa. However, he won hearts after dropping “20.10.20“, a song dedicated to the lives lost at the October 20 Lekki Tollgate shooting.

    The Nigerian army had opened fire at innocent citizens protesting against police brutality at the Lekki Tollgate which led to outrage not just in the Country but outside the nation too.

    To commemorate that day, Burna on a Micheal Jackson sampled beat pours his heart out and vents his frustrations about the incident.
