    This list might satisfy local listeners, but it’s missing some of 2016’s best. How did ‘Marry’ by DJ Neptune, feat. Mr. Eazi, not make this list? That’s an offensive omission.

    Also, this list needed to include ‘I Want You’ by Poe, Tesh Carter, Saeon, Tec(SDC) & Mojeed; ‘Fallen In Love’ by Chidinma; and ‘My Darling’ by Olawale.

    1. ‘I want you’ and ‘My Darling’ are songs that do not have the momentum, views and are not charting on playlists on the continent and in the diaspora. The songs chosen are top 20, many of which charted and also hit the million view count and above (on You Tube). Chidinma’s ‘Fallen in Love,’also a newer release, is cute and could be added to the list because it is fast gaining momentum.

      1. Winston Balagare says:

        OK, that’s fair. But let’s remember that the charts don’t always get it right. Mr. Eazi dropped ‘Skin Tight’ in summer of 2015, but many people didn’t take notice until the video came out last December. It’s the sleeper hits that get the biggest reactions in the parties.

        I bet if a wedding DJ threw on ‘Turn Up’ by DJ Jimmy Jatt, feat. Flavour, it would get a similar reaction to Tekno’s ‘Pana’. The machine doesn’t make the hits–the people make the hits. Ask D’Banj; despite what the machine wants, people have been rejecting him since 2013.
