Jinmi Abdul’s Music
I discovered his music on the internet and I enjoyed it a lot this year. His songs will most likely dominate my most played songs on sound cloud ! My favorites include Tinuke eko and Linda highlife.
Eri ife’s music
So, I know Eri Ife from church and was first introduced to one of his rap songs a long time ago (under the name Calderon) by a friend, and I enjoyed it a lot. He however took his alternate music game to another level. He released Eri Ife (the EP) this year and I enjoyed listening to it a lot. Starlite , Upside down are among my favorites. I also felt black minstrel was tooooo short but maybe that’s part of her beauty – (I mean black minstrel’s beauty 😄)
Nonso Amadi’s music
I first took note of Nonso Amadi’s tonight at a programme and I loved it immediately but I did not know it’s Title. I tried to google “run to your mama mp3” but it did not yield any valuable results 😂. Imagine my Joy when I finally discovered the song. I eventually discovered Radio too and I absolutely loved it. Radio’s video is also really good for a low budget video. I can’t wait for more of his music come 2018.
Nigeria’s Afro popular music
This year was massive for Nigerian music worldwide. We had Wizkid and Drake. Davido and C.ronaldo 😂 Maleek berry (Eko – Miami) !!!! It was a good year.
It also seems it saved it’s best for last. With the release of songs towards the end of the year like Jeje – Reekadobanks, likedat – Davido, even Wizkid’s – Manya.( In my opinion, his only Naija-centric Jam this year) .
Davido had a decent year with the release of IF, Fall, FIA etc. I enjoyed them, but not as much as I am enjoying like dat at the moment.
Wizkid also “came closer” to his dream of becoming a world wide icon.
Wait…… I almost forgot JUICE by YCEE ft Maleek berry!!!!!!! I’m not sure it was a 2017 release, but it sure made massive waves in 2017. There are a lot of songs from this genre that I enjoyed this year
Nathaniel Bassey – Wonderful wonder
I’m not sure when Nathaniel Bassey released this single, but I just came across it this year and I totally fell in love with it. It has a sublime rhythmic progression you cannot but fall in love with. I listened to it a lot during baths this year.
Tatiana manaois’ music
I also discovered this songstress in 2017 also and I’m glad I discovered her music. Her “like you” made massive waves 🌊 in 2017 even though it was released much earlier. Her music is very calm and she won herself a fan from my very first listen to her music. I have since enjoyed many of her songs.
There you go. Those were my favorite songs this year . Do you have any songs you believed I should have listened to this year? Drop it below in the comment section, and I will most definitely hunt it down.
cheers to the new year 🥂🍻
