Tell me what you think about the top 10 songs available here.
They were picked as seen fit.
Written in descending order.
- Eminado – Tiwa Savage ft Don Jazzy:
The single came in May; sitting at number nine in the Mavin songstress 19
track album list Once upon a time, but not until the video directed by extra-gifted filmed maker Clarence Peters
trumped airwaves in November did it sink down hot and hard in Naija’s musicdom. The song with it’s powerful
hook-line remained at the top of many music charts for weeks.
Koma Roll – Tillaman ft Burnaboy, Iyanya, Ice Prince, Phyno:
The single sizzles with talent especially from featured acts nailed even harder by the tongue twisting verses delivered by Ice Prince and Phyno. Tillaman who is relatively on the up and coming list released the song remix and video in May but it endured till the end of the year, making it a party favourite and relentless club banger.
Rihanna – Orezi:
The song captures listeners from the
very first second. Orezi who is a 2012 Channel O best ragga Dancehall nominee no doubt is a success story with earlier singles “Booty Bounce” and “Emoti” doing well on the airwaves. Orezi who showed a surprising strong voice in Rihanna released the single in February and was made even more magnetic with it’s killer video and a model who looked so much like American singer Rihanna.
Flavour – Iyanya
With the release of his album in the middle of the year, it’s been an iyanya invasion as his non-stop waist rolling songs have kept him on everyone’s party tracklist.
Durosoke – Olamide:
Lyricists and bad boy Olamide
(literally) came with this powerful punch in July. The single with it’s seductive upward-downward dance movements
leaves little to your imagination. It was an instant hit, further fastening Olamide as one of Nigeria’s most sought after artist. Durosoke turns out to be a Pandora’s box of blessings, securing Olamide and his producers to several
award nominations and awards.
Sho lee – Sean Tizzle:
It was released back in February but it could be mistaken as a hit dropped only a few weeks ago. That’s how infectious Tizzle’s ‘Sho Lee’ ravaged fans.
The single with strong rhymes and powerful beats completes every Disk Jockeys charts. Clubs raged with it for months and still are. The single catapulted Sean from relative obscurity to international stages.
Limpopo – Kcee:
This single was Kcee’s magic wand for
the year. It made him so magnetic, mobile giant MTN came racing for him. He was irresistible in clubs, gals fell in love over and over again. His wriggling dance movements became a name; he just couldn’t stop. Limpopo came in
March but like Tizzle’s Sho Lee, you’d think it just hit the airwave and true to every good song it has laced him to
multiple award nominations.
Personally – P Square:
With this single, P Square thumped a very clear message; that the influx of new talents in the music industry could never upstage them. After the mind numbing success of ‘Alingo’ that took 2012, P Square returned in June with stark images of the late pop icon Micheal Jackson. In the gripping dance-drenched video, they stomped straight into the heart of fans; keeping their beats spectacularly alive, P Square forever remains ‘Personally’ with their fans.
Caro – Starboy ft Wizkid & LAX:
Love is such a beautiful story to tell and it was told exceptionally by Wizkid and fast rising Starboy act LAX in this sizzling number. Caro once again re-echeos Wizkid’s penning skills. It’s a stripping song about the search for a mystery girl; completely gripping listeners when it hit airwaves in August. Its a dance number that could get a DJ shot if missed in raving clubs. A beautiful performance that not only showed brilliance on the part of the acts but the transformation that happens to a song when driven by a gripping story.
Ada Ada – Flavour:
The high life singer emerged ‘king-
overall’ this year in this classic piece that has left him a world stage of swaying worshipers. Flavour knew this song was going to be a hit and aptly prepared for it. The music video shot in high definition by Clarence Peters rolled a true to life wedding of a classic girl with ladies in waiting.
Weddings nationwide now match to this song with non-Ibo’s effortlessly singing along. Flavour proves once again that talent runs in his veins and beats in his heart. The song released in June sits pretty at our number one position and
will stay with us for a very long time to come.
