The 20 Greatest Naija Love Songs of the Modern Era

The season of love is here again! Happy Valentine's Day to all lovers across the globe! To mark this special day, we at notjustOk.com have decided to put up a selection of The 20 Greatest Naija Love Songs of the Modern Era (21st Century).

It's important to note that there are several lovely tracks that didn't make the list, and that's simply 'cause we had to cut it down to the 20 most memorable love classics since the turn of the Century. As expected, veterans like 2face Idibia, D'banj, P-Square, Flavour are joined by new school pace-setters, Wizkid and Davido, with amazing songs that will surely stand the test of time. The ladies aren't left out either as Asa, Tiwa Savage and Waje play their part in making this selection a true masterpiece.

What makes every song on this list even more special is the fact that, even though they're either slow or mid-tempo, they all became monster hit singles in a market that's mainly dominated by fast-paced 120bpm (otherwise known as "tungba") music. Kudos to each and every one of these super-talents for blessing us with timeless music future generations will speak about.

Since you lot were keeping it to 20 you might as well made it one artist per song and try to squeeze in more artists ..of the artists that got two songs here I got some replacements

PaulPlay - Angel of my life
Djinee - Ego
Obiwon - Obimo Remix
Faze - Need Somebody

Good list but I think "Angel of Life" by Paul I.K Dairo and at least one of these Djinee songs "Ego", "I no dey shame", "My Pillow" or "Lade" should have made the list.

Oh oh, Mola G are u kidding me ?? nice article man, but hey !! you should for nothing on earth miss Paul Play's - Angel Of My Life (abi was i myopic not to see it on the list) In as much as Timi is a very great artistic writer and great vocalist whom i hold with great prestige, but bro i wonder how his 'Iyawo Mi' made the list, shuuuu???

Where'S EGO by djinee, angel of my life by Paul play, wedding day by 9ice, kuchi kuchi by Jodie, searching by OJB, kpo kpo di kpo kpo , malaria by Soty ??? Not on the list ???? . Notjustok why are you guys disappointing us ? NJO is Nigeria number 1 music site but yet the list & articles posted on here is always biased . NJO settle down and do your research properly before you post another list . If una post my comment won't be surprised.

Bro, the thing is, no matter how fair and unbiased the list is, there would still be a lot of songs to be left out. You're right to say these songs should have made the list, but remember the list can only accommodate 20 songs, and the 20 chosen songs are worthy of inclusion.
