Top 10 Nigerian Songs 2017: Top 30 Most Popular Music In Naija by WizPrince1(m): 10:53am On Dec 30, 2017


The year has finally reached an end and this is the ideal time we show you the top 10 Nigerian songs 2017 and alongside top 20 and 30 respectively. These are the best songs in Nigeria; the most popular songs in Naija in 2017, songs that made people's moments regardless of critics.

While our Nigerian singers and rappers are trying their best to release hit songs, 2017 truly helped make things easier as we recorded more popular songs contrasted with previous years. Nigeria's Music Industry is genuinely the number one in Africa and I don't think anybody would argue about this.

All things considered, Nigerian artists are talented and our style of music is unique and can't be duplicated. Sometimes, when I hear people complain about it, I simply whisper to them that "We can't be like them", that is the reason we are different. Trust Pius Princewill, whenever I write concerning Nigeria's Entertainment Industry, I make efforts not to be partial and always give in my best amidst critics.

These songs below were chosen in view of popular releases from January 2017 down to December 2017. The criteria I used as a part of selecting them did not depend on how informative they are, but rather their popularity - the rate at which people were familiar with them. These songs didn't just trend in Lagos, however, they were spread all over the country.

I took time to draft out every one of them in a sheet and was even befuddled on the actual song I should include or not. This is the reason I needed to make the list up to 30 so we all could remember those songs we couldn't do without in 2017. Nonetheless, I still got answers from top friends in the industry before listing them here. Let's quickly head on to the post catchphrase.

Living Things was released in 2016 and Harrysong's Arabanko didn't trend to the extent of being on the list.
The song, Joromi is #31. The reason we didn't add it at 30 was that all the songs that made it was more popular and Joromi was popular among some set of people. But now I know I truly made a big mistake of not including it in top 20. I never knew the song was this known. Below is the updated list. wink cool

There's no way you'll ever write something like this that you won't have critics. I understand and learn more from them.

Understand that most of these songs you're saying should have gone to the top are just trending now because they're newly released. This list is focusing on what happened from January - December.

Keep saying your mind though!

WO is not bigger than Mad Over You and should not be second

Daddy Yo is NOT bigger than Fall

WTF is Ponmile doing above Yeba and All Over? I barely even heard that song and the YouTube views reflect that

Sofa at 29? No words
