Playlist: Media Rants Top 20 Nigerian Songs

These are the 20 hottest Naija jams right now.

There are so many Nigerian songs to gush over this year, with more than a month still left to go. This year, Nigerian music made it to the top 10 of the much coveted Billboard Hot 100 chart, thanks to Wizkid and Tems’ ‘Essence’.

Even though ‘Essence’ dropped last year, buoyed by its remix with Canadian singer Justin Bieber, it’s arguably the record of the year. We’ve got internationally acclaimed artists everywhere, making intentionally acclaimed music and dropping hits back to back.

From Buju, to Ladipoe, to Wizkid, Adekunle Gold, Joeboy, Fireboy, and more, below is the Media Rants Top 20 trending Nigerian songs for November week 2. If you missed last week’s playlist, you can check it out here.
