The 10 Best Nigerian Songs of the Month

Featuring new music from Wizkid, Davido, Banky W, Yemi Alade, Niniola, M.I, Tay Iwar and more.

No longer content with headbanging beats that could make up for mediocre singing, more artists are relying on the strength of their voice to carry a song, whether this is a mere coincidence or a calculated move to stand out is not quite clear.

The notable exceptions in our list, include "Someone Like You" by Flavour, "Magic" by Aramide and "Awa Love" by Johnny Drille who continues to convince as a latter day Age Beeka.

As for full projects, the three most impressive have been Sugar by Mystro, the longterm producer turned artist whose first single "Atarado" premiered as an OkayAfrica exclusive last year. The other two are Late Night Vibrations by Ycee and Bella, and Leopards by Suté Iwar.

Read ahead for the Best Nigerian Songs of February.
