Day 362 of 365: Top 21 Songs of 2021


When I came up with my list of top 20 songs of 2020 in January, I was quick to point out that there weren’t as many songs in 2020 as there were in 2019. In 2021 we were however blessed with so many songs that to settle for my top 21 songs was a major chore. The year kind of started out slow for me as I was still reveling in songs or albums released in 2020. I for one always had Davido featuring Mayorkun’s “The Best” on repeat for most part of January and February.

Olamide is my all-time favourite Nigerian rapper and he switched up the game by delving into a new genre. The album UY Scuti was Olamide doing R&B/Dancehall and it totally popped. It can be said that Baddo as Olamide is also called had been toying with the idea of switching genres, and you could tell with the release of UY Scuti that Olamide had sealed his status as one of the best artistes to ever come out of Nigeria. Rock, the hit single off the UY Scuti album is a song for years.
