Nigeria’s position as Africa’s musical superpower was further cemented by the number of fascinating songs that Nigerian superstars produced in 2022.

In a few years to come if not this year, Afrobeat would have overtaken all other genres of music as the most popular worldwide if we continue this way.

The year 2022 was filled with so many hit songs that we couldn’t keep than to get enjoy all of them as it comes.

Here are the top 10 songs, we believed dominated the most in the year 2022.

1. Kizz Daniel ft Tekno – Buga

“Don’t sleep, Don’t sleep. Wake up wake up”, Kizz Daniel’s “Buga” featuring Tekno was in everybody’s mouth in the year 2022.

The song “Buga,” which in Yoruba means “show off,” exudes sophistication in both its structure and lyrics.

Despite this, Buga continues to generate buzz across all social media and streaming services.

With over 100 million views on Youtube, Kizz Daniel made sure to show up with one of his trademark dance moves.

2. Burna Boy – Last Last

Rolling Stone named “Last Last” the top Afrobeats song of 2022 on December 28. The song has broken many records and numbers since its release and currently stands at Burna Boy‘s biggest record.

This heartbroken hymn is not just understandable in a time when finding love seems to be a losing endeavor, but it is also a very excellent song.

Burna Boy uses the phrase “everyone go chop breakfast” from pop culture in his song “Last Last” to provide a fresh take on heartbreak. He takes a less emotive and more logical stance in this song.

The record samples Toni Braxton’s 2000 R&B hit “He Wasn’t Man Enough”.

3. Rema – Calm Down

Rema‘s debut album, Rave & Roses, was made available in March of the previous year. London and Andre Vibez‘s guitar-driven, mid-tempo song “Calm Down,” which serves as the album’s debut single, was also made available.

The majority of us found all the solace we needed in Rema‘s calm vocals and clever words on “Calm Down,” which helped us get through the rollercoaster that was 2022.

This song held listeners’ attention and captivated them from March 2022 till the end of the year. The song’s incredible success allowed for a global remix with Selena Gomez, and Rema gained his first Billboard Hot 100 entry as a result.

The original visual has over 300 million views on Youtube and the remix with over 200 million views.

4. Asake Ft. Burna Boy – Sungba (Remix)

Ololade mi Asake from the YBNL camp, delivered an outstanding remix of the song “Sungba” with Grammy Award winner Burna Boy.

The remix is quickly becoming popular on social media and in public. This follows the original song’s commercial success.

The second song on his EP, Ololade Asake, featuring appearances from Burna Boy was titled “Sungba“. Like every other street song, Sungba is infectious and has unpolished lyrics. It often asks a woman to be less shy because he has the means to take care of her and, in exchange, she must “Sungbalaja.”

Due to the addition of the African Giant, Sungba undoubtedly has all the ginger we could possibly want. The song went ahead to be one of the biggest song in 2022.

Pheelz, Mr. Producer and BNXN, Finesse produced not just a song in “Finesse” but an anthem.

Ever since Pheelz and Buju released this song, it has been living rent-free in our thoughts.

Everyone on social media was instantly fascinated by the song Finesse. In fact, you might be praying one moment and singing “If I Broke Na My Business In Your Subconscious” the next.
It was bizarre.

6. Oxlade – “Ku Lo Sa”

 Oxlade‘s “Ku Lo Sa” was initially merely a performance record on the music platform, Colours Show and was never a song Oxlade thought would go viral.

However, the song had accomplished the unheard-of for a Nigerian song and a Colors Studio performance, taking off on its own to develop into a worldwide success while simultaneously growing strong roots in Nigeria.

While the TikTok challenge itself has nearly half a billion videos and a related filter, the Colors Show performance video of “Ku Lo Sa” currently has 56 million views.

7. Asake – Terminator

There was a commotion online when Asake gave us “Terminator” preview.

Not because people disliked the music, but rather because nobody had anticipated hearing another Asake hit so quickly.

Despite the fact that Asake never let up, releasing music nonstop throughout the year, “Terminator” was received differently. It even survived a leak and a second verse change to become one of the top songs from “Mr Money With The Vibe“Asake’s debut album.

8. Davido – Stand Strong

One of the most poetic songs of the year of 2022 is Davido‘s “Stand Strong“. Because of the song’s meaning, we can state this with confidence.

In the song “Stand Strong” features the Samples ChoirDavido reflects on his life and the highs and lows of daily living.

The song departs from the Nigerian singer’s typical dance and pop sound. Instead, Davido recorded a heartfelt song for the first time in many years.

The song becomes more popular as 2022 progresses and when Davido‘s son’s tragedy was disclosed.

9. Mavins – Overdose

Mavins’ star-studded collaboration hit “Overloading (Overdose)” brought back the vibe of music bands in an era where they were no longer relevant.

With lines that are infectious and dazzling from beginning to end and amazing arrangements with each star shining just as brightly as the next, “Overloading,” featuring some of the most outstanding recording artists in the business, makes it nearly hard for music enthusiasts to pick a favorite verse.

10. Fireboy DML Ft. Asake – Bandana

In an interview with Ebro Darden on Apple Music 1, Fireboy DML stated that Olamide had suggested the Asake feature and that he had initially been at a lost as to how to finish the song that eventually became “Bandana.”

Ironically, Fireboy admitted that he had been reluctant to work with anyone, yet their connection produced what is undoubtedly the best collaboration of the year.

The End!!
