Nigeria’s Top Romantic Songs Of All Time


It’s a new month and a week to Valentine’s Day! There is something sweet and dreadful about this day because you are excited to make this one day uniquely special while stressing at the same time between what is ‘just enough‘ and ‘embarrassingly outrageous‘ display of your true feelings.

Very soon radio stations all over will drown our senses in love songs of old and new. While I have no problems with it, it can get annoying. Not because of the high expectations from people in relationships – you know what I mean hehehe – but how over-hyped it is that it tends to lose its value. Just the way Christmas and Easter have been so commercialized that I no longer see them as spirituality significant but another holiday.

I don’t mean to generalise but it seems to me that true romance is dead in most cases. A Naija girl will become friendly to that guy that has been chasing her for months just so she can get a gifts from him to show off to her friends. Or a guy would use this a ploy to get into the pants of that girl that has been turning him down. Una know yaself!

What happened to the days when honest romantic gestures were valued. That letter and mix-tape that he worked on weeks in advance to show you how he feels or wanting to enjoy his company, the feel of his lips on yours wearing that colour, outfit or perfume you know will drive him crazy. Cheesy right? Lol! But you get my point.

I was thinking about it and was going through my playlist when I realised I didn’t have Nigerian songs on there. Yup, the West has taken over! I tried to come up with a good list and found it difficult to come up with 10 songs. Can you imagine that! What do Nigerians listen to when they are getting ready to do the dirty dance? 😉

The only thing left to do was enter my time capsule. Destination the 90‘s and travelling to the present. With help from friends, this is the list I came up with.
