Top 1o Nigerian Songs For March
1. Teni – “For You” ft Davido
Teni has been bringing a unique flavor to the music scene since her debut in 2016. She has never failed to deliver amazing and addictive songs. Have you listened to her Wondaland Album?

2. Rema – “Bounce”
Another Banger! You know it’s a smashing hit when the Prince of Afrobeats, Rema is involved. In March, Rema dropped one of the hottest tunes of all time. He bounced back with an addictive jam that will have you hitting the repeat button over and over again. Bounce is an uptempo song with Rema’s signature catchy lyrics. The key element of Bounce was the beats. The beats, ooohh the beats sounded like something out of this world. The beats were mad, catchy, groovy, and tense. At first, I doubted if Don Jazzy had used jazz to craft out the beats for the song, but after music lovers testified to vibing to the song cos’ of its beats, I was convinced. Bounce is a song that talks about the luscious and magnificent body of an African woman. It was produced by Don Jazzy (Na who do the beat?- Jazzy)
3. Ckay – “Felony”
Ckay returned with another smashing song, Felony. The soft-sounding R&B singer made an impression in the music industry with his bopping Love Nwantiti Remix. In Felony, Ckay shines through with his sultry vocals as he expresses his eagerness to do anything for his lover. This track is soft, a typical mix of Afropop and R&B. Its pace was mid-tempo giving off a serene vibe. With Ckay’s signature hums and adlibs, Felony turned out to be very addictive. This love song was Produced by Auxxie, and it’s off Ckay’s Ep, “Boyfriend”.
4. Joeboy – “Focus”
Joeboy is best known for his soft, sweet, not in a sickly way romantic songs. Since his debut, Joeboy hasn’t failed to deliver banging tunes. This time he crafted out another tune off his “Somewhere between Beauty and Magic Album”, titled Focus. Focus is a mid-tempo love song with an amazing combination of Afropop and Joeboy’s signature R&B. In his Afropop-R&B Fusion, Focus, Joeboy perfectly expresses his lover’s lack of attention and difficult it to get to her. This serene tune was produced by MOG.
5. Zinoleesky – “Kilofeshe Remix” ft. Mayorkun, Busiswa
Another Song that buzzed in the month of March is Kilofeshe. The show killer Zinoleesky returned with a hotter, well-seasoned remix of his 2020 hit song, Kilofesehe. This time he was fully prepared to do extraordinary things by featuring South African Rapper, Busiswa and the Mayor of Lagos, Mayorkun. The remix was full of vibes, its beats were still on track and the singer flowed fluidly in Yoruba and English. When it came to the song delivery Mayorkun finished his verse with pure, undiluted vibes and Busiswa didn’t disappoint to deliver the maddest and coolest rap lines on the track.

With Simi’s silky voice, she added the feminine touch the love song needed along. Running to You tells a romantic yet sad story of two lovers. This tune was produced by Deeyassobeatz.
7. Naira Marley – “Coming”
Some songs are better listened to than explained. While fans might not openly indulge in the excitement of Naira Marley’s new s*x song, Coming, the track magically is the one number on all music platforms. Hmmm… Marlian President cooked up a sizzling song with south African-based rapper, Busiswa. The beats of the song were banging, it had the signature Zanku sound to it. The lyrics of the song on the other hand were sensual, erotic, porn-related and it came as no surprise when NBC banned the song due to its vulgar words. The song was produced by Marlian hit maker, Rexxie.
8. Lyta – “Are You Sure” ft. Zinoleesky, Emo Grae and Naira Marley
Marlian Music blessed us with this brand new music – Are You Sure by one of her signee, Lyta. For this track that took over music lovers playlist and Airplay, Lyta employed the services of Zinoleesky, Emo Grae and Naira Marley. The song is a love record that asks for Clarifications of a love interest.
9. Ajebo Hustlers – “Pronto” ft. Omah Lay
It is safe to say that Ajebo Hustlers Duo; knowledge and Piego and Omah lay literally killed the song. Of all Omah Lay’s Features, Pronto happens to be the best. Omah lay with his soft, sultry vocals almost deviated attention from Knowledge who delivered fire rap lines, and Piego who flowed smoothly in Pidgin and PH slangs. This track is highly infectious, its backbeat is intoxicating and its lyrics were unforgettable. Pronto is filled with sexual innuendos, but it didn’t stop this ‘work of art’ from having over a million streams since its release.
10. Ice Prince – “Kolo” ft. Oxlade
The rap sensation teamed up with fast-rising afrobeats artist, Oxlade for a unique flavor to his song, “Ko lo.” Ice Prince was nothing short of outstanding on this track, he delivered banging and catchy rap lines. For Oxlade, with his soft, sultry vocals, he gave the song the right amount of R&B it needed. Ko lo is a love dedication to the singer’s woman who sang about her driving him crazy. Ko lo is highly infectious, its backbeat is intoxicating and the lyrics are unforgettable. This tune was produced by TBD.
