Top 10 Nigerian songs that glorify weed smoking
Mary Jane – Vector
I never knew Vector was talking about weed on his ditty “Mary Jane” until recently. At the intro, he sampled Fela’s water before switching to Dancehall.
A girl personified Mary Jane on this tune. Mary Jane is very faithful, doesn’t play around, gets you high, thinks, puts you in a mess when you overdose on it.
They are all attributes of what Mary Jane does to the system after it intakes.
Ginger – Wizkid feat. Burna Boy
Wizkid part of the verse was a bit praising smoking weed on it.
We go dey, we go dey, we go dey nice
If we enter the place I go dey nice
I go freaky, freaky, freaky, I go rewind
Sey na me go be the DJ, omo feel nice o
Say my party no dey stop ’til the daylight
Before you run go dey shayo, make you think twice
If smoke you wan smoke, say we dey tight
Omo ma lo go, say we live nice
Smoke Some Weed – Burna Boy Feat. Onos
When Bob Marley said No Woman, No Cry, he never envisaged a Port Harcourt raised Burna Boy would switch that on a cover and talk about weed.
Burna Boy and Onos go back and forth on this tune, they are miles apart, one needs a girl to smoke weed with while the other is bent on walking her down the aisle.
