In 2015, we started a series here on NJO called “10 Nigerian Songs I Can’t Stop Listening To” (See Vol. 1 and Vol. 2), covering songs we really really liked, but were not necessarily hit songs. Our focus in this section was, and still is, mostly on special songs from up & coming acts as well as “sleeper-hits” from the relatively more recognizable names.
In a nutshell, don’t expect to see Wizkid‘s latest single or Davido‘s smash hit here. However, you’re guaranteed to listen to good music.
So, let’s get right into it. Here’s the 3rd installment of 10 Nigerian Songs I Can’t Stop Listening To!
