1. Wizkid – Pakurumo DOWNLOAD[audio:http://www.notjustok.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/04-Pakurumo.mp3|titles=04 Pakurumo]
Pakurumo by Wizkid is the #1 song of 2011 according to the votes. Wizkid became a bonafied superstar in 2011 with the release of several HIT singles and a commercially successful album. Pakuromo was an instant favorite after the album hit the market and it obviously was chosen by his fans as the next single off the album once it was released. It enjoyed tremendous Radio play and if you do your research, you may just find out that it may have been the most downloaded song among Nigerian songs in 2011.
2. Ice Prince – Superstar DOWNLOAD
[audio:http://www.notjustok.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Ice-Prince-Superstar-NJO.mp3|titles=Ice Prince - Superstar (NJO)]
IcePrince dropped the biggest single in 2010 and followed it up with a party banger, Superstar in 2011. Superstar is no Oleku but it caused a significant amount of damage anywhere Naija music was played in 2011.
3. Davido – Dami Duro DOWNLOAD
[audio:http://www.notjustok.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/dami-duro-davido-loud-3.mp3|titles=dami duro davido loud 3]
Davido's Dami Duro was released during the 4th quarter of 2011 and still made it to #3. If you were in Lagos in December, you definitely heard Dami Duro countless times.
4. D’banj – Oliver DOWNLOAD
[audio:http://www.notjustok.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/DBanj-Oliver-NJO.mp3|titles=D'Banj - Oliver (NJO)]
For someone who has not released an album in 3 years, D'banj has managed to stay extremely relevant and 2011 was no exception. The release of Oliver coupled with the viral videos mad Oliver a national hit. Everyone and their friends at least attempted to shoot their version of the Oliver dance.
5. Brymo – Ara (Wonders) DOWNLOAD[audio:http://www.notjustok.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/BrymO-ARA-notjustOk.mp3|titles=BrymO - ARA (notjustOk)]
It's no surprise that Brymo's debut single on Chocolate City makes the list. Brymo knows how to write the right lyrics and deliver them in a manner that evokes the intended emotions.
6. Dbanj ft. Snoop Dogg – Endowed (Remix) DOWNLOAD
[audio:http://www.notjustok.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/D-banj-ft-Snoop-Dogg-Mr-Endowed-Remix2011_Top20.mp3|titles=D banj ft Snoop Dogg -Mr Endowed Remix(2011)_Top20]
It was expected that the Endowed remix featuring Snoop Dogg would make it on. The novelty of a Top American rapper featuring on a Naija track added to the reasons why the song got as popular as it did. Remix toh bad.
7. Samklef - Molowo noni DOWNLOAD
[audio:http://www.notjustok.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/Samklef-ft-Ice-Prince-DPrince-Wizkid-Molowo-Noni-NJO.mp3|titles=Samklef ft Ice Prince, D'Prince, Wizkid - Molowo Noni (NJO)]
Samklef can confidently say that he not only helped produce some hit songs in 2011, but also has a banger of his own. Molowo Noni was released in 2010, but 2011 is the year it became extremely popular.
8. Wizkid – Wiz Party DOWNLOAD
[audio:http://www.notjustok.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/Wizkid-Wiz-Party-NJO.mp3|titles=Wizkid - Wiz Party (NJO)]
When Wiz Party was released, it hushed every Wizkid naysayer up even though the song has only 2 verses deep. The beat, arrangement, delivery and hook just pull you in.
9. Olamide ft Wizkid – Omo to Shan DOWNLOAD
[audio:http://www.notjustok.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/Olamide-ft-Wizkid-Omo-To-Shan-NJO.mp3|titles=Olamide ft Wizkid - Omo To Shan (NJO)]
Olamide is here to stay. After he released Omo to Shan in 2010, he went on to release another notable single, Young Erikana proving that he is not a fluke. However, in 2011 Omo To Shan got a lot of shine and Olamide got several shows off the strength of the single.
10. M.I ft Flavour - #1 DOWNLOAD
M.I made history with the release of MI2. This track, #1 is probably the only certified party jam off M.I's Sophomore album, MI2. The formula M.I used, 'highlife and hiphop combination' connected well with the whole country. All the ladies and dudes dance or hail when this song comes on.
11. Naeto C - 5 & 6 DOWNLOAD
Naeto C, the man who made Nigerian rap cooler returned to with his Sophomore album, Super C in 2011. His single, 5 & 6 caught on big time like wild fire and enjoyed a significant amount of airplay.
12. MI ft Brymo – Action Film DOWNLOAD
This song was the track everyone mostly spoke about the week MI2 was released. The fast paced nature of the tune and brymo's voice on the hook (the same voice on Oleku chorus) made the single stand out.
13. Davido ft Naeto C - Back When DOWNLOAD
Yes!!! This is the track that took Davido to the 'Highly Anticipated' level. Obviously, Davido has a good ear for hits. This is someone that we all look forward to hearing more in 2012.
14. Tiwa Savage – Love Me DOWNLOAD
[audio:http://www.notjustok.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Tiwa-Savage-Love-Me-Love-Me-NJO.mp3|titles=Tiwa Savage - Love Me, Love Me (NJO)]
Tiwa Savage made the bold move to head back to Nigeria and establish herself in the Nigerian music industry back in 2010 by releasing her 1st single Kele Kele. In 2011, she released Love Me 3x and solidified her position in the industry as one of the highly sought after artists in the Nigerian music industry. Love Me is a party love song; you cant beat that there.
15. Terry G – Akpako Master DOWNLOAD
[audio:http://www.notjustok.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/Terry-G-Apako-Master-NJO.mp3|titles=Terry G - Apako Master (NJO)]
Spiritual Mad Man, Terry G has proven over and over that he will remain relevant as long he has a song out. Regardless of allegations that he steals material, Terry G has not faltered when it comes to making commercial music accepted by majority of the general public. Even though they lyrics are not understood. Akpako Master became a nation wide hit in a matter of weeks after it was released.
16. P-Square ft May D- Chop My Money DOWNLOAD
P-Square definitely came out with a solid album last year. Chop My Money for some reason caught on quickly and became arguably the most popular song from the album.
17. Jahbless - Joor O (Remix) DOWNLOAD
Joor O (Remix) was the street anthem of 2011. Everyone memorized most of the lyrics and recited it anytime the song came on. Jahborne definitely benefited big time from the success of Joor O.
18. Duncan Mighty - Port Harcourt Boy DOWNLOAD
[audio:http://www.notjustok.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/Duncan-Mighty-Port-Harcourt-Boy-NJO.mp3|titles=Duncan Mighty - Port Harcourt Boy (NJO)]
Port Harcourt first son made the list in 2011 even though the song was actually released in 2010. Till date, the song is still getting good radio play and is a favorite among music listeners.
19. Flavour - Ashawo Remix DOWNLOAD[audio:http://www.notjustok.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/flavour-nabania-ashawo-remix-official-video_Top20.mp3]

20. Skales - Mukulu DOWNLOAD[audio:http://www.notjustok.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/Skales-Mukulu-NJO.mp3|titles=Skales - Mukulu (NJO)]
Skales is one artist who is quite skilled with writing engaging lyrics. For a song that was just released in the last quarter of 2011, it is safe to say Mukulu is a successful track.
