The traffic in Lagos is notorious for being one of the worst on the African continent, thanks to the insane number of cars on our roads and the very limited road infrastructure. PWC says that there are 14 million cars currently plying Nigerian roads.
Chances are that you’re probably stuck in traffic, from work to either your home or your turn-up spot.
To help reduce the risk of ruining your already short weekend, we compiled a list of top Nigerian AfroPop songs to get you bopping your head right in traffic, and well spruced up for the weekend.
1. Phyno – Connect
This native-sounding track is sure to connect you deeply with your roots (if you’re from Eastern Nigeria). Nigerians round the world are sure to fall home-sick while listening to this song.
2. Mavin Crew – Jantamanta
This song produced by Nigerian Superstar producer Don Jazzy is fun-sounding, and has the perfect amount of yuppiness to instantly convert you from a grumpy frustrated person to a happy smiling child.
3. Tekno – Duro (remix) ft Flavour, Phyno
One of the buzz singles of the moment, Duro by Triple MG act Tekno gets a high profile remix. The Dj Coublon produced joint features indigenous heavyweight Flavour and Phyno. Expect to hear this track everywhere this Christmas, so you might just add it to your personal playlist right away.
4. Davido – The Money ft Olamide
With his unrealized sophomore album ‘Baddest’ gaining so much momentum as the most anticipated on the continent right now, Davido duets with Olamide on this new single. ‘The Money’ is a groovy tune, highlighting the ‘Good Life’. It was produced by Kidominant.
5. Wizkid – Final (Baba nla)
‘Final (Baba Nla)’, the legendary beatz produced song, is expected to be part of Wizkid’s EP billed to drop before the end of the year. Nothing stops you from enjoying it now.
