Naija Music: Why No Hit Songs In 2021?? by Vinnie2000(m): 9:49pm On Jun 20
This 2021 is already getting to it's Midpoint and every sector in Nigeria must be counting dier Gains!!

But in the Nigerian Music Industry, There has been a Lull!.
No Hit Songs that Shakes Clubs, Parties and events, like some in the Past!!..

Songs like
If-Davido (2017)
Fia- Davido (2017)
Pana-Tekno (2016)
Yawa-Tekno(2017)
Limpopo-Kcee (2013)
Soco- Wizkid (2018)
Dumebi-Rema(2019)
Stupid love- Olamide(2012)
+Other Great Classic hits of the past.

This year 2021, there has been no STAND OUT song!!

Some relatively average songs are now like Hit Songs..e.g
Don dada-Timaya
Body-Mayorkun
Highway-DJ Kaywise, etc..
And dat Useless Naira Marley's song when he was talking about missionary, cowgirl, etc she say Aha a, she say Oho oo.. undecided angry
Average songs, we have seen dis 2021!!

What's the cause??
*Are our Artistes losing dier Talents??
*Or they were not even talented in d ist place?
*Or there are no Music producers.. sad
*Or it's a natural phenomenon..

What do you think??

It's possible the musicians are still recovering from the pandemic effects or the fans are not in the mood to make hit songs at this moment in time seeing the state of the country. I said fans caused songs don't just become hit cause the beatings and lyrics are cool, but also because they drop at a time when people are receptive of them. All these have to fall into place for a track to be successful.

Meanwhile, what you call "average" is completely based on your own taste/preference. If those songs are hit, they're hit.

I see. Well... you love the song, and it's okey to call it a hit cause a lot of people liked and played it. But even poorly done works have ended up being hits in the past too, and some better works never made it. That's because music is an art, there's really no standard for measuring what will be a hit. Beats, lyrics, location, timing, the artist's reputation, the audience (demography, etc), all intertwine with luck to make it very unpredictable. That's why you sometimes wonder why people are mad over a certain song you personally find unappealing.

If there's no song people have liked in common this year like those hit songs you mentioned, then it's okay to wonder why the year is musically dry. But if those ones you call "average" are widely accepted, played and enjoyed by fans all over the country, then they are just as hit, and only average based on your own standard. The point here being that being a hit is not really about the highly subjective quality of the song but more about how well it's accepted by the audience; the part I think is unpredictable.

I think there is no hit song in 2021 because the poets do not write good potery.

IF is the only hit song on that list..

Good music died long time ago, even in America..

You can’t be singing about women always and expect people not to get tired. Too much of everything is bad..

Nigeria needs a fresh tune and any artist that’s lucky to see that will make a jam..

Nice one, Boss!!

You have put down a probable reason for dis..

The 'Baby Whine your waist' and 'Shake am for me' Vibes has been overused and some Artistes know this!!

Meaning Artistes needs to get More creative!!
