Songs that Rocked the Nigerian Air Waves in 2017

2017 has been quite a year in the Nigerian and African music scene as a whole. We listened to massive singles, saw upcoming artistes gain momentum at an insane rate, experienced the power of massive collaborations, and we even saw some superb comebacks.  Over here, we’ll take a quick look at some singles that ruled the airwaves this year.

Davido – FIA FIA
Davido has had quite a successful run this year and this song in particular has a wonderful allure and catchy tune.  The premise of the song talks about a lover not standing by her lover and leaving in difficult times. Davido also manages to also talk about current events happening in his life, which is a wonderful artistic ability to connect your life into your music.  This song has garnered over 10M views and of course the video was shot by Clarence to peak an already wonderful tune.

Davido – If
This song has a unique visual setting and also a catchy tune. It was relased earlier in the year and has garnered massive views

Mr Eazi - Leg Over
With a funny video setting, and cameo appearances by Wizkid and Maleek Berry; Mr Eazi has been able to create a dance anthem by asking to be given a leg over.

Davido – Fall
Another good song!

P-square - Nobody Ugly
The Duo of P- square team up once more to release this light hearted and feel good tune that themes around our interaction with social media.

Tekno – Yawa
Tekno dishes out another wonderful tune. In the Tekno Chronicles with the ladies, he seems to be in trouble (Yawa) with this particular lady, and will even leave Diana for her. In case, you missed it, Tekno seems to have a nice continuity from his previous song, that gives a good story to this song.

Olamide- Wo
Olamide created an anthem that has filtered into every nook and cranny. One of the most popular songs of the year. This song has spun several remixes, remakes, dance videos and even its fair share of controversies.

Runtown- For Life
Runtown put his wonderful touch on yet another beautiful love song. It’s packed with simple yet powerful visuals, and wonderful lyrics.

Tiwa Savage -  All Over
Tiwa Savage has had a stellar year, and ‘All over’ is just one of the many wonderful tunes she has    dished out this year alone. It’s a feel good, playful and very colorful video packed with wonderful lyrics.

Kiss Daniel -  Yeba
This highlife tune by Kiss Daniel, released only a few months ago has racked massive views. It is a feel-good tune, packed with wonderful visuals and lyrics, that gives you a massive throwback into the Lagos Party scene of yester years leaving you nostalgic.
