Songs That Made Our 2018
Before we delve completely into 2019 and allow the wind of musical creativity carry us to the shores of the year, let’s wrap up 2018 by recalling songs that blew us away.
2019 is already showing a promising future with Davido’s London O2 Arena Concert, Simi and Adekunle Gold’s wedding with their new song ‘Promise’; and some others.
2018 was probably the best year, since the stellar 2008 (it’s been actually a decade ago!)
Hits ‘pon hits, albums, collaborations, videos (read: stew), international, shaku-shaku, pon pon pon… Everything happened this year. From D’banj featuring Slimcase, to 2Baba featuring Peruzzi, to Wizkid and Tiwa romance, there has been breathtaking events, since the year began. They all had one thing in common, they produced bangers, hits, jams, call the names.
Here is a list of most of the songs that got the most of 2018. You’ve probably already forgotten some of these songs existed. About 70 hit singles we couldn’t stop vibing to, throughout the year.
StarBoy – Soco (Ft. Wizkid, Terri, Ceeza, Spotless)
The best StarBoy collective project, since “Caro,” maybe. It’s probably also the song of the year 2018.
Wizkid – Fake Love (Ft. Duncan Mighty)
Best collabo, undisputably. And it also marked the return of PH’s first son, Duncan.
Olamide – Science Student
When ban a hit like this, it’s like from frying pan to fire, it even gets more popular. Olamide repped the streets, and still managed to campaign against drug abuse. King!
Davido – Assurance
Chioma is no doubt one of the prominent figures in Entertainment, now. Why? Davido wanted assurance from her, and he did a hit about it.
Falz – This Is Nigeria
“Look how we living now, everybody be criminal…”
2Baba – Amaka (Ft. Peruzzi)
It has the whole stuff you’ll expect in a 2Baba song, and it was a hit. We can talk ’bout Peruzzi, later.
Olamide – C. Ronaldo
Baddo linked up with ID Cabasa, and made not just headlines, but also a big hit. Is Ronaldo now following him on gram sef?
D’banj – Issa Banger (Ft. Slimcase, Mr Real)
D’banj stooped to conquer!
Davido – Flora My Flawa
OBO got a new songwriter, so he wanted to showcase his lyrical depth.
Reminisce – Problem
Somehow, Alaga always finds his way into the picture.
Davido – Nwa Baby
David actually has enough hits to battle Wizkid, this year.
DJ Enimoney – Diet (Ft. Slimcase, Reminisce, Tiwa Savage)
Otunba Lamba, Alaga Ibile, and Queen Tiwa. I heard Enimoney’s Olamide’s brother?
DMW – Mind (Ft. Davido, Dremo, Mayorkun, Peruzzi)
Often pitched side-to-side with “Soco,” “Mind” was also a big hit.
Phyno – Isi Ego
Although, the stupidest thing I’ve heard this year, is someone comparing this with “Science Student,” Phyno’s “Isi Ego” bu a hit.
DJ Xclusive – Shempe (Ft. Slimcase, Mz Kiss)
IT IS WE!
Burna Boy – Ye
Burna Boy has got the potentials. He’s a Fela re-incarnate, maybe. “Ye” affirms that.
DJ Spinall – Baba (Ft. Kizz Daniel)
Kizz was free, at last. Spinall don’t dull. Next week, “Baba” don land!
Tiwa Savage – Lova Lova (Ft. Duncan Mighty)
They had a good chemistry, I must say. Nothing compared to stew, by the way.
Every Olamide issa hit, Every Wizkid issa banger. Do the math!
Mayorkun – Bobo (Ft. Davido)
Mayorkun was Touring,he needed it. But he was dropping hits, too.
Kizz Daniel – 4Dayz
Who else is tired of writing Kiss as Kizz, uh?
Olamide – Motigbana
There’s no sound Olamide can’t leverage, trust me. Motigbana was produced by Killertunes.
DMW – Aje (Ft. Davido, Fresh, Peruzzi, Yonda)
Working closely together is what has held DMW, not their talents whatsoever. “Aje” was a hit, too.
Falz – Sweet Boy
Falz is the King of Social Media in music. He does only music that can break the internet. “Sweet Boy” did break some stuffs.
Wizkid – Fever
The Wizkid song you didn’t like, but you now like. Skrr.
Reminisce – Ajigijaga
With all the albums we had, “Ajigijaga” is still the hottest hip-hop single of the year.
Yung6ix – Ina The Benz
OK, I won’t answer you, if you ask “Who is Yung6ix?”
Tekno – Jogodo
Tekno did a remake of the “Jogodo” we know from the old days, and it’s all shades of mad vibe.
Burna Boy – Gbona
Never underestimate what this guy can pull off, he’s so hawt!
Barry Jhay – Aiye
Your daddy’s ringtone!
Mayorkun – Posh
Mayorkun hasn’t lost the vibe. He had it on “Che Che” and even “Posh.” Even the album!
Jaywon – Saro
A song about heart-break, Jaywon, came back with a bigger bang. “Saro” is a classic.
Ice Prince – If I Tell You (Ft. DJ Spinall)
It’s not hard to see that although Ice Prince isn’t in the mainstream, he is living fine. He’s not given up on the music he makes.
DMW – Aza (Ft. Davido, Duncan Mighty, Peruzzi)
Duncan helped us with many hits, this year. We’re grateful.
DJ Jimmy Jatt – Small Girl Big God (Ft. Olamide, Reminisce)
What a jam!
Simi – I Dun Care
She’s been all over her album, ever since. But with “I Dun Care” she’s back, yeah.
Victor AD – Wetin We Gain
You probably don’t even know Victor, but the song…
Slimcase – Otunba Lamba
Slimcase’s first single in years, the shaku-shaku track had people talking about what Slim’s really got.
Phyno – Fuwa Sewa
At least, Phyno’s back to rap. So, everyone had to listen.
Tekno – Yur Luv
One of Tek’s songs that rocked airwaves was “Yur Luv.” Just that cool Tek vibe.
Niniola – Bana
Everyone’s talking ’bout Bana now, right?.
Chinko Ekun – Able God (Ft. Zlatan, Lil Kesh)
Somebody said it’s Yahoo boys song, I think it’s just for hustlers.
Zoro – Stainless (Ft. Simi)
Zoro was actually singing ni oh. And it was sweet, with Simi.
Adekunle Gold – Damn Delilah
Adekunle had a stellar album, but unlike his debut, this is more alternative. “Damn Delilah” had people talking, though.
Wizkid – Gucci Snake (Ft. Slimcase)
With all due respect, if Wizkid wanted an intro, he could have just gone for Brodda Shaggi. What a waste of Slimcase. But, the track na FIA!
Timaya – Bam Bam (Ft. Olamide)
Who doesn’t need Olamide in his life?
LYTA – Time (Ft. Olamide)
Not only Timaya, Lyta does need Baddo.
Limerick – Pesin (Ft. Olamide)
And Limerick, too. Imagine oh.
Olamide – Criteria
That’s why they’ve not stopped callin him King. “Criteria” is just amazing. They must play it on my wedding day.
Oladips – O’Sure (Ft. Olamide)
I know you didn’t see another Olamide coming, but it is what it is. Oladips is doing fine, thanks for asking.
Illbliss – 40Ft Container (Ft. Olamide)
Arrrgh! Olamide, again? Wait, who’s the most-featured, Slimcase, Duncan or Olamide? Don’t let that distract you from the fact that Illbliss has dropped two tracks this year.
Lil Kesh – Apa Mi
He’s like, say, exiled from the industry. But then “Apa Mi” is something.
Zoro – Mbada
Zoro was a blast, this year. He’s going home with a couple plaques, if everything goes well. Mbada and the remix, was a major point of discussion.
Maleek Berry – Sisi Maria
Maleek has quite a number of hits. He didn’t get Next Rated for nothing.
Omawumi – Me Ke (Ft. Kizz Daniel)
Omawumi brings that Afro-centric sound you’ll only hear from people like Angelique Kidjo, on the Kizz Daniel-assisted “Me Ke.” A vibe!
Harrysong – Tekero
Five Star didn’t take the music away from him, afterall.
Mr Eazi – Overload (Ft. Slimcase, Mr Real)
Mr Eazi wasn’t going to let the shaku wave pass him by, he quickly went in for the two raves of the moment, and got a mad jam, “Overload.”
Dremo – Kpa (Ft. Davido)
Off his Codename EP, Dremo shot a video for “Kpa” and the single was Trending for like a week. That was probably the only hit from the album.
Lil Kesh – Flenjo (Ft. Duncan Mighty)
Thank God for Duncan Mighty!
