f you have not come across the Egungun video by Obesere or heard the sound on social media, then you must have been living under the rock as a Nigerian. With the Egungun trend on social media, Skiibii took the opportunity to do a remake with Obesere.
It seemed like remakes were the order of the week. Skiibii and Obesere weren’t the only ones who caught the remake fever with their Egungun release. Paul Play and Runtown came together to remake one of Nigeria’s classic songs Angel of my life. Besides the remakes, Falz released his first single of the year titled Bop Daddy and social media have taken the song and ran with it as they bop to the track in videos that are now being shared all over social media.
Abandon all your worries this weekend and elevate your mood with these thoughtfully curated songs by top African artistes.
Here are 5 of the hottest trending African songs you should catch up on this weekend…
1. Skiibii ft Obesere – Egungun
This is Skiibii’s official second single for 2020 and by featuring the veteran artiste, Obesere on this popular tune, we sure know that Egungun is going to be a hit! If not for anything, you’d be humming to “Egungun be careful, Na express you dey go, Motor go jam you, If you wan stop our show, Any show we go we dey kill am” all weekend long.
2. Falz – Bop Daddy
When the President of the Sweet Boys Association, Falz, releases his debut single for the year, you know we are going to be rocking to it and the single titled Bop Daddy has already taken social media by a storm. On this first official single, he features Ms Banks an English rapper from Southeast London.
3. Black Rider ft Cobhams Asuquo and Waje – The Black Rider
When Waje lends her voice to a track, you know she will turn it into gold. This combination of Waje and Cobhams Asuquo in one track with Toyin Adebola who is also known as The Black Rider is a masterpiece! This is one song that inspires you to keep doing you, keep going on and one day the world will hear your story.
4. Shatta Wale – Cough Cough
Shatta Movement Empire honcho, Shatta Wale, has finally released his long-awaited fast-tempo song titled Cough Cough and from the introductory beats, you’d find yourself on your feet boogying down to the beats. The Ghanaian king of dancehall has not taken things slow in 2020 and we are loving every release he puts out there!
5. Paul Play ft Runtown – Angel Of My Life
Runtown and Paul Play are an unlikely combination in my books but after listening to the remake of Angel of my life, I began to wonder why they didn’t do this sooner! The nostalgia the song brings combined with present tunes will have you replaying this track.
