A song loved not only in Nigeria but Africa as a whole, Fada Fada embraces its traditional and church music heritage and boasts easy listening and sing along properties. What’s not to love, especially with Phyno and Olamide on the same track?

  DOWNLOAD AUDIO: Phyno ft. Olamide – Fada Fada (Ghetto Gospel) (4.3 MiB, 106,435 hits)

The song Mama is instantly catchy, utterly danceable and Kiss Daniel’s soothing, throaty vocal work is the glue that holds it all together.

  DOWNLOAD AUDIO: Kiss Daniel - Mama (Prod. Young John) (3.5 MiB, 93,153 hits)

The battle for today’s hit single in Nigerian music is won by the beat and Tekno Pana’s slowed down wonder is a delicious and original blend of drums, snares and whatever else is working right now in the business.

  DOWNLOAD: “Tekno“ - Pana (Prod. Krizbeatz) (3.8 MiB, 637,748 hits)

With its overtly simplistic lyrics and themes that speak to the very Nigerian past time of praying for every single life decision, no wayAdekunle Gold‘s Pick Up would not have succeeded on the scale that it did.

  DOWNLOAD: Adekunle Gold – Pick Up (Prod. Pheelz) (3.1 MiB, 72,564 hits)

As if he still needed any proof of his choke hold on the rap/pop game, Olamide dropped a freestyle, Who You Epp in April and like a boss, left some free 16 bars for people to complete. This cut with Phyno and Wande Coal is the official promo version which became a street anthem across Nigeria

  DOWNLOAD AUDIO: Wande Coal x Olamide x Phyno – Who You Epp? (Refix) (4.6 MiB, 131,316 hits)
