Some days should be reserved for rendering praises to God. Today is one of such days, and Awa gbe O ga is our song of choice.
Off the collaborative project by T.Y. Bello and Tope Alabi, The Spirit of Light, this song is an attempt at describing a section of the endlessness of God’s majesty.
Imagine the amount of damages we could have avoided if we had the right guide all through our journey.
If you wait until your moment of weakness, exhaustion, confusion, or lack, before seeking for the Ultimate Guide, there are some irreparable damages, or at least scars, that you might have suffered already.
There is no attempt to compete with the dancing ability of Michael Jackson. Instead, just like the song, a relaxed Lagos vibe is the feel.
Someone who isn’t energetic or exactly a dancer won’t feel out of place listening to or dancing along. I know a seventy years old Michael Jackson would enjoy dancing to this.
With this song, I hope you have not lost your sense of wonder. I hope you can approach His presence and marvel at His splendor.
I believe you will approach the throne of grace, and find strength for times like this.
The brain is indeed stronger than we ever imagined. Don’t stress over things. Even the subconscious part of you is working to fix things that matter (and do not matter) to you.
In 2021, just like in every year that preceded it, a lot of things will be competing and demanding for your attention, but you get to decide all that matters to you.
I have decided that Christ is number one for me. He comes before everything else.
Ginger is inarguably the best song on Wizkid’s Made In Lagos album.
Thankfully, Wizkid and Burna Boy were generous enough to bless this song with a video.
Koroba by Tiwa Savage is the best musical depiction of the concave, convoluted and warped mindset of most Nigerians.
At its release, there was a lot of postulation that the song was an open lauding, endorsement, and encouragement of prostitution.
Today, a lot of people are resuming work for the year. I believe Wetin We Gain by Victor AD is a great song to get back into work mode.
And when I wish you a happy financial new year, you would do well to wish me the same.
All I want is to live in grace. For my life to be an expression of the extravagance, that is when God chooses one to be a manifestation of His wonders.
There are over a thousand and one songs that one could start the year 2021 with, but in my opinion, Ayo by Simi is the best out there.
How best do you describe that feeling when the love is past its sell-by date? That is exactly what Tiana Major9 does on same space.
At this point, it must be acknowledged that Olamide is great at making hits and albums. “Who You Epp” is not an exception.
There are things each of us dislikes or hate but tend to keep to ourselves. Unlike Passenger, many of us do not get to unload them as fashionably as he did in I Hate.
The land is green with opportunities; the dreamers are ready; can the government, if they won’t aid them kindly get out of their way?
As a big dreamer, I hope my dreams come true. I hope yours also come true.
Ilu by Asa is a song I love but wish never existed. It is a piece of artistic brilliance, beautifully composed, yet reflecting the state of a highly deplored nation.
When a self-confessed gangster sings about how he was Blinded By Your Grace, you have to believe that His Grace is beyond description.
At this point, the year 2020 needs a song to calm it down and for me, Rise Up by Andra Day is the song for it.
Be careful before you make those who love you start to despise you. That is Cardi B’s warning on Be Careful.
In Adura Elijah, Jhybo calls on Jehovah to save him from enemies near and far, known and unknown, and most dangerous of all, frenemies.
If we must talk about Rap Music in Nigeria, then we must talk about Vector. And if we must rank the best Nigerian rap songs for 2020, then “If We Must” must be somewhere in the top three so far this year.
Pete Pete is exactly what I imagined a 9ice and Asa collaboration to sound like. And no. They did not disappoint.
Some people get addicted to what was supposed to be a temporal source of release and pleasure. We find our “high” and want to remain there. This has led to misuse, abuse, and dependence on drugs, alcohol, sex, relationship, porn, game, gambling, and others.
On Good Thing, the song in itself talks about refusing to be treated sub-humanly because of your flaws and insecurities. It encourages you to take charge of your life and demand the respect you deserve.
Frenemies. We’ve all got them. Wish we didn’t. Hope we don’t. Pray to loose them, but we’ve got them still.
In the song “Only You Jesus” by Ada Ehi, she recognizes the finite ability of man and the infinite ability of God. This is something that a lot of us have come to overlook in our daily lives.
If you have to slap a police officer, go to war, go to court, climb the bridge, enter water, punch a judge or slap an agbero for a guy, you really need to start with rethinking your life choices.
The song “No More Sorrow” by Majek Fashek and 2 Baba is the perfect song for Nigeria at the moment. Beautifully remixed from Majek Fashek’s 1991 Classic, “Holy Spirit.”
One by Tiwa Savage is a song of prayer in readiness for a New Year where we will be counted amongst those who have truly been blessed.
The song Save Myself by Ed Sheeran describes the unhealthy situation, relationship and “situation ship” a lot of us find ourselves in.
Why did I choose Macklemore’s Glorious as my first Song Of The Day in 2019? Easy answer. This song best describe my feeling coming (going) into this New Year.
Even at the peak of my patriotic mood, it is easy to get tired of coming up with more positive vibes for Nigeria. Great Nation as we are, we sometimes need a Timi Dakolo to remind us of our greatness and pump us with more patriotism.
There is a friend that sticks closer than a brother. That is the easiest way to describe the brotherhood we witnessed with Choc Boys. Seeing it all falter has left a big gap in the Nigerian music scene.
Don’t give up, you never can tell how close you are to your Victory. Aimasiko lo damu eda, ori mi lowo Oluwa lowa.
He has made a way
Where there was no way
Hallelujah Eh! It’s the sound of breakthrough
Hallelujah Eh! Hallelujah O Oh!
Let the sound of rejoicing fill this house
Simi’s Joromi tells the story of the delectable Sister Simi deciding enough is enough with Uncle Joromi forming “Tough Guy” while she is all “Good Girl-ish” and “They” never happening because he never gets to ask her out. She is taking matters into her own hands and is going to “shoot her shot.”
This song teaches all men to understand the fact that the domineering garment isn’t the right attire to put on while in a relationship and wishing to get a perfect woman would only amount to living in a fool’s paradise as no one is born perfect.
Alujanjankijan is the kind of music you would expect from a maestro, someone who understands the beauty and power of music at the same time and also does a great job of balancing both.
I can’t find a better way to describe my pain and disappointment with Our beloved country, I hope Nneka’s Heartbeat does a good job of that.
I don’t know if the words creepy and lovely have ever been combined to describe anything, but it is eerily safe to say that Passenger’s Simple Song is creepily-lovely.
An astounding feature of this song is the fact that it deviates from the typical Nigerian New Year song that is only about prayers to God for a prosperous New Year. This song reminds you of your own role in ensuring you have a successful year.
Odun Tuntun serves as a rendition of heartfelt prayer to God for a beautiful, bountiful, boundless and blessed New Year.
