10. One Corner – Patapaa ft. Ras Cann
Although we have no definite idea what the theme of the song is, but the display (dance) that comes with it makes us ponder if we really want to know.
9. Maradona – Niniola
The meaning of the term ‘Maradona’ went from a legendary soccer player, to a generic title for all playboys, thanks to Niniola who spelt that out for us on this song.
8. Fargin – Teniola
The most intriguing thing about this song is how a youngster from Ekiti State owned the heck outta a classic Igbo high life masterpiece. Teni recreated the popular sound, spicing it even more with an indigenous vocal flavor and some really sweet satirical lines.
7. Pass The Agbara – Skuki
This jam started trending on social media, then the rave spread to clubs and before long, both the old and the young started singing “pass the agbara.”
6. Wo! – Olamide
Who knows the streets better than Olamide? No one, no one (*singing in Alicia Keys’ voice*) Baddo dropped Wo! and it became the perfect street anthem for awon omo thicker body and awon goons to n jo bi daddy, to n jo bi mummy.
5. Penalty – Small Doctor
Fia, Malo, Adoyoyo . . Which Songs Are Rocking Your Playlist This December?
Small Doctor gave his fans a big treat with Penalty. From being just a street banger to becoming a mainstream hit that got people using the catch phrase ‘won ti gba penalty lo throw-in,’ in their everyday conversation.
4. Am Not Regular – Speed Darlington
When I take a step you hear Bang! I take another step you hear Dang! The irregular guy, Speed Darlington became a viral sensation very quickly through this single. The energy god’s catch phrases from this song quickly grew on us, and in no time too.
3. Mad Over You – Runtown
This song caused trouble o, no bi small. Such a viral phenomenon it was, that the Ghanaians started to feel spited because a Nigerian superstar was getting all the praises from a song sampled off their own popular Banku sound.
2. IF – Davido
This was the song that pretty much revolutionized the now all-too popular pon pon sound. ‘IF’ is laced with some of the catchiest phrases and lyrical punchlines. Just wait for that ‘30 billion for the account’ part.
1. Mans Not Hot – Big Shaq
…And the thing go skrrrrr, pa pa pa pa pa *you know the rest* ;-P
