Choosing the best songs or coming up with a chart is one of the most difficult tasks. 2021 was a great year for music in Nigeria, but 2022 was a better year simply because the Usual Suspects were not the only ones on the front burner.
Wizkid did not make the cut on my list. I’m not saying he didn’t do well musically in 2022, but it was clearly the year of the younger generation, with Asake blowing us to smithereens.
Kizz Daniel had a big year, as did Asake, we however haven’t confirmed if Burna Boy made $100 million, but I digress.
Below are the 22 songs that did it for me in 2022:
22. Big Energy – LadiPoe
21. Calm Down – Rema
20. Clowns – Vector tha Viper ft LadiPoe
19. Loaded – Tiwa Savage ft Asake
18. Call of Duty – Zinoleesky
17. Asiwaju – Ruger
16. Electricity – Pheelz ft Davido
15. Finesse – Pheelz ft Bnxn Fka Buju
14. Overdose – Mavins ft Don Jazzy, Crayon, Ayra Starr, LadiPoe, Magixx & Boyspyce
13. Terminator – Asake
12. Last Last – Burna Boy
11. Stand Strong – Davido ft The Samples
10. Playboy – Fireboy DML
9. Palazzo – DJ Spinall ft Asake
8. Organize – Asake
7. Dior – Ruger
6. Bandana – Fireboy DML ft Asake
5. Common Person – Burna Boy
4. Joha – Asake
3. Cough – Kizz Daniel ft Empire
2. How are you (My Friend) – Johnny Drille
- Buga – Kizz Daniel ft Tekno
There you have it, my top 22 songs of 2022. Again, I don’t expect people to agree with this chart but always remember it is my list. LOL.
Have a prosperous 2023.
