Here are the top Naija Collaborations So Far This 2021
Feeling- Ladipoe, Buju
Easily one of Nigerian best collaborations to come out of this year. If Buju was gaining attention with his solo songs, “Feeling” accelerated it.
With one of 2021 best hooks and catchy bars to match, it is no surprise that “feeling” topped charts and airwaves.
Early Momo- Vector, Goodgirl LA
Vector in preparation for his forthcoming album dropped the sweet melodious, “Early Momo” featuring underground act, Goodgirl LA.
“Early Momo” is a perfect addition for any s*x playlist and is attention-grabbing thanks to its smooth R’n’B vibe.
Running (To You)- Chike, Simi
“Running to You” is a song we didn’t know we actually needed. Chike who found mainstream success in 2020 with “Boo of the Booless” proved he still has a lot up his sleeve with “running to You”
Simi and Chike showcase brilliant sonic harmony, making listeners want more.
Southy Love- Perruzi, Fireboy DML
‘Southy Love” is an amapiano styled song that gets us hooked right from the opening seconds and can we say, Fireboy DML knows how to sell a song, especially when it’s not his. His verse would have you thinking the song was his.
Pronto- Ajebo Hustlers, Omah Lay
Port-Harcourt breds, Ajebo Hustlers and Omah Lay have in their respective ways being repping their city.
Ajebo Hustlers found mainstream success after their song, “Barawo” being an EndSars anthem and Omah Lay since his major breakthrough in 2020 has amassed fame both home and abroad.
Earlier in 2021, they came together to create the groovy “Pronto” which has a sweet beat to match its sexual innuendos-filled lyrics.
Bling- Blaqbonez, Amaarae, Buju
In 2020, Blaqbonez earned himself more fans thanks to his wicked humor and badass marketing strategy. He released his album, “Sex Over Love” in 2021 with “Bling” as its lead single.
“Bling” is a mid-tempo summer bop that has elements of the Wizkid sound sprinkled on it. Rising artists, Buju and Amaarae spice the song making it sound otherwordly.
For You- Teni, Davido
“For You” was the lead single from Teni’s “Wondaland.” The song which features Davido boasts of outstanding production credit from Pheelz and Lamba to have you singing along.
Coming- Naira Marley, Busiwa
“Coming” is another usual Naira Marley tune filled with enough descriptions of the art of intercourse. Just like the name suggests the song pays ode to orgasm. What makes the song different from his tracks is the addition of Busiswa and its amapiano inspiration.

Breathe- A-Q, Chike
A-Q has gradually been making a name after being an underground Rapper for years. This year he dropped his album, “Golden” and while the project boasts of good tracks, one of it that has managed to catch fans’ attention is the Chike-assisted “Breathe“.
“Breathe” is an emotional song that people who constantly find themselves under pressure can relate to.
History- Cheque, Fireboy DML
Cheque and Fireboy DML have been friends way before they both became popular in the music industry. Formerly signed to the same label, the two have found successes under different labels.
“History” is their first collaboration since their rise to the limelight. “History” is an emo trap record with soulful infectious lyrics.
Jailer- Olamide, Jaywillz
After the release of “Carpe Diem,” it was evidenced that Olamide has evolved both in sound and lyrics. His 2021 album, “UY Scuti” is an advanced version of its predecessor.
The Jaywillz-assisted “Jailer” stands out from the many features of the project. Jaywillz hooks listeners from the opening with a sweet hook.
Verified- Laycon, Mayorkun
Still riding on the success of his 2020 BBNaija win, Laycon released his album, “Shall We Begin” in 2021. Despite what some people will say, the project produced some gems, one of it which is “Verified”
Right from the beginning of the song, Laycon and Mayorkun already inform fans that they are in for a ride. “Verified” which has become a favorite for social media challenges sees Mayorkun give another memorable hook from his treasury of hooks.
All My Life- M.I Abaga, Oxlade
While M.I Abaga has earlier released TBDK which features fellow rappers, Erigga and Sinzu, we had to go with the Oxlade-assisted “All My Life” for this list.
2021 seems to a year for Oxlade collaborating with a lot of rappers. After doing magic to Ice Prince’s “Kolo,” he gives us a beautiful hook on “All My Life”
