9. ALL OVER - TIWA SAVAGE


Tiwa came with this earlier this year and it was something different it got every music lovers thumbs up. All over is probably the biggest song from a female Nigerian artist this year. With over 10million views on YouTube and million of streams on spotify trust me, it deserves the spot.

Song dropped late 2016 and became an instant hit on social media before it expanded to radio. With over 24 milllion views on youtube it is obvious this is one of Mr Eeazi's biggest songs ever. Leg over is one of the most streamed Nigerian songs digitally this year. Leg over may not be too popular on the streets but it sure is popular internationally.


6. JUICE - YCEE ft MALEEK BERRY
[img]http://www..ng/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/YCEE-JUICE-FT.-MALEEK-BERRY-696x696.png[/img]
This song is arguably the song with most unique and crazy beats of 2017. Juice was a huge success with over 10 million views in a couple months after release. Juice is Ycee's biggest song so far with millions of streams on spotify and heavy digital downloads.


5. COME CLOSER - WIZKID ft DRAKE


Well, we all know this is obviously the starboy's most popular song this year. In recent news the song just got over 200k digital sales in the u.k which silver. The song is the most sold out song by a Nigerian this year. Come closer went big outside Nigeria its still even growing big internationally. The song also big locally here in Nigeria but not as popular as once topping this list.


4. FALL - DAVIDO



Fall was the second single released this year by Davido. A song which its slang "Fall on you" has gone viral on the streets ever since its release. Fall currently has over 33 million views on youtube which is quite a big deal because it garnered all that just in a couple months. Fall has quite the digital download numbers its crazy.

3. MAD OVER YOU - RUNTOWN


Everyone was mad over this song for its uniqueness after being released late 2016. Many were certain no other song could beat the song with popularity but well, the song has got the 3rd position on our list which isn't bad. Mad Over You is pretty much the most covered Nigerian song of 2017, the song also pretty much launched the "pon pon" sound which is like Nigeria's biggest sub-genre of the moment. Mad Over has over 50 million views just in 12 months, that is obviously no easy feat. The download counts are soaring too high too,

2. WO - OLAMIDE

Song dropped middle year and it became a street anthem within 24 hours. Olamide's Wo was what everyone was waiting for when the "pon pon" sound reigning. Wo is the song you must hear played at any club or wedding or any party of sorts any day. With about 10million on youtube views after a couples months everyone can tell the song is no joke, not forgetting its digital streams and downloads are high as they can get. Wo became too much of anthem when it started getting played in churches and getting covered by many artist.


1. IF - DAVIDO

We all can agree this song is the biggest this year. Davido dropped the single produced by Tekno in February and it became an instant hit, at the time of writing the song currently has 50million views on youtube which is a big deal for a song to garner that much views in a year here in Nigeria. Not to mention heavy audio streams and downloads on digital platforms. The song obviously is one of the biggest on the streets too with "30 billion" mantra that came with it every Nigerian even those who don't like pop music know of the song. The same song later went to inspire Davido's 2017 tour the 30 billion dollar tour which is the most successful tour by an African artists this year.
We here by annouce Davido's If as song of the year.


NOTE: [ This is ranking is basically for year 2017 and 2017 alone.]

Mad over you was not even released this year. SMH
If and fall are the biggest songs of the year.
Come closer should be closer to 20 .
What the hell is joromi doing here?
None of tekno's songs should be on this list.
Where is "most high " by flavour?
Yeba should be in top ten.
Wo should be 5 or 6 .
Penalty should be a lot closer to top 4.

Nigerians don't appreciate Nigerian rap songs. Not even a rap song on the list. Same people who worship the likes of Nasty C and Drake.

Nonsense Nigerian songs......
Re: Top 20 Hottest And Most Popular Songs In Nigeria 2017 by DirtyGold: 2:02pm On Nov 22, 2017
Yea, these songs got the highest promo not necessarily because of their quality... Enough money was paid to keep them on air. Fair list, though.

What's tha business?
