The season of love is upon us fellas.
Each year on February 14th, many people exchange cards, gifts, flowers (maybe internet data) or anything significant with their special somebody. Valentine’s Day is recognized as a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance in many regions around the world.
From the music desk here at NET, we have curated a playlist of popular Nigerian love records from the past decade – some slow and others tad up-tempo but best believe that these songs will ease you into the mood for all the mushiness.
This is our Valentine’s present to you and yours.
2 Face – African Queen
This is 2 Baba’s magnum opus. The ballad that served as the soundtrack for everything love and romance across the continent throughout the first decade of the 2000’s. African Queen still possesses the magic that’ll trigger your emotions.
Davido – Aye
With this record, Davido surpassed our ears and reached for our hearts. Aye was released on the first day of February in 2014 and it was the ultimate love anthem in the year of it’s release. “She no want designer, she no want ferrari, she say na my love oh”, he sang in praise of his lover.
Hit the play button.
Tiwa Savage – My Darling
My Darling will help you recount the importance of companionship. Highly recommended that you listen to this in the company of your lover as it has a melody that will allow for a few careful dance routines.
Reekado Banks – Katapot
This particular record is one that this writer holds dear. It was arguably the biggest love record of 2015 and it helped Reekado carve a respectable identity for himself as a pop singer. Katapot promises to launch you into the mode of reflection and appreciation of all the support and love that you have received from your significant other.
Olamide – Melo Melo
When a street boy falls in love, the result is what Olamide reveals on Melo Melo. Just like every other song on this list, this song appreciates the beauty of love and being blessed with a ride or die.
Ric Hassani – Gentleman
With Gentleman, Ric Hassani sets the standard for what true love should be about. This will remind you and your partner of the importance of mutual respect and maybe help you reach a pact that will re-ignite
Runtown – Mad Over You
This is without a doubt the most popular African love record in recent times. The magic behind this song remains mysterious but one thing is certain; it possesses the right amount of naughtiness that leads to exciting hugs and kisses.
If you are unable to sing Mad Over You to your lover, you can get away with just quoting the lyrics.
“Girl you are my woman, my superwoman, I dey mad over you”.
