Music and entertainment channel, MTV Base Africa have just released a list of the Top 20 Naija Songs of All Time. You guessed it! This one obviously will join the record of controversial lists we’ve had in the industry, as it will get us talking quite an awful lot about it. Here it is below!
1. 2FACE – AFRICAN QUEEN
2. 9ICE – GONGO ASO
3. D’BANJ – OLIVER TWIST
4. P SQUARE FT. WAJE – DO ME
5.WIZKID – HOLLA AT YOUR BOY
6.DAVIDO – DAMI DURO
7. ICE PRINCE – OLEKU
8.D’BANJ – WHY ME
9. M.I – SAFE
10. OLU MAINTAIN – YAHOOZE
11. NAETO C – KINI BIG DEAL
12. DAVIDO – SKELEWU
13. BANKY W – LAGOS PARTY
14. WIZKID – PAKURUMO
15. ASA – JAILER
16. P -SQUARE – CHOP MY MONEY
17. WANDE COAL – BUMPER TO BUMPER
18. DR SID – SURULERE
19. FLAVOUR – NWA BABY REMIX
20. KCEE – LIMPOPO
Dr Sid’s Surulere shouldn’t be classified as one of Naija’s Top 20 songs of all time… may be just not yet. But instead The Mavins Dorobucci would have been best suited in it’s place. Yahooze as a matter of fact should be in the first six songs displacing either of Davido or Wizkid’s. Mo’ Hits Donk Call should have made it on the list and that 2face Idibia’s If Love Is A Crime should equally merit a spot on the list.  There are songs from artistes that have phased into oblivion whose songs can very well pass for evergreen. Also, Iyanya’s Kukere was a revolutionary single in the afro pop genre from the Nigerian shores but yet it was omitted, erroneously may be. Banky W’s Lagos Party wasn’t that much a hit like his Strong Thing, which should have replaced it and in like manner, Flavour’s Ashawo is the song for this list instead of Nwa Baby.

What do you think about the list? Which songs do not deserve to be on the list and which other songs can you think of that should merit the list but did not? Share your thoughts!

this list is suffering from leprosy. most of the songs are barely 10 years old and not even considered hits.
