2013 is nearly over !! As we only have a couple of days of the year left, the next few posts will be my wrap up of the Naija music scene in 2013 .
First up is the top 20 songs of 2013 !! The biggest Nigerian music website ‘Not Just Ok’ (this is the website that first brought me on to Naija music )have asked their readers to vote for their top 20 songs of 2013. I guess by leaving the voting in the hands of their readers, NJOK are trying to avoid a repeat of the drama that has erupted from their previous ” top lists “ loool . If you missed the outcomes of their infamous lists click here and here
Readers have until 11:59 (Nigerian time) on December 31st to cast their votes. You can vote and view the full list of songs nominated here. The top 20 songs will be announced on the 1st January.
In the mean time here is how Ninz voted on: The Top 20 songs of 2013 (please note ; this list is in no particular order) .
*I have linked each song to their youtube videos , just in case by some chance you haven’t heard any of them yet * big side eye at you *!! *
Ninz Top 20 Songs of 2013
Banky W – Jasi
Davido – Gobe
Davido – Skelweu ( man even when I type the name Skelewu I break out in to the dance Loool )
Ice prince ft Burna Boy / YungL and Olamide ( Yung L’s verse !! You just got to light one up ^_* )
Jesse Jagz ft Wizkid – Bad Girl (These two can do no wrong whenever they come together on a track )

P square – personally
R2bees ft Wizkid – slowdown
Sarz ft Wizkid – Samba (beat of life ) (You know when you are in spin class and you want to get over that last hurdle ? This is the song you play !! I could even run on the treadmill easy when this song was playing)
Sean tizzle – sho lee (Sho lee , Ko leee … this song gets me sooo hype )
Starboy ft lax & Wizkid – Caro (apparently Wiz said i didn’t get back to him in time with the approval to use Ninz , so he had to settle with Caro instead 😦 )
Wande coal – rotate ( rotates , gyrates … kai this song got me in so much trouble lool /\–0 0–/\)
Wande coal – the kick
Wizkid – jaiye , jaiye (tune of destiny !!!!)
Songs I would have voted for if they were on the nominations list:
Jesse Jagz – Redemption (Man puff spliff , drink and beer and stout … I don’t know why this line cracks me up)
Reminisce ft Olamide & Endia – Ijoba (Government) ( this was on the nominations list but I had already hit 20 😥 … This song makes me feel oo street . Olamide is a true lyricist)
Danny Yung – omo lepa ( actually i am not sure if this was 2013 :/)
Olamide – Yemi my lover ( this has to be one of my weirdest break up songs , but I just so much lufff ettt !! )
Blackmagic – repete (not sure why this wasn’t on the list in the first place tbh )
It was hard narrowing down to just 20 songs, thank goodness it wasn’t a top 10 list . I would have really struggled.
What are your top songs of 2013 ?
