22 Hot Nigerian Artists and Songs that Rocked 2011!

Hey folks, I will deliver on every promise I have made on this website i.e. two outstanding articles I owe you all on the alleged Tipsy copyright infringement case and the alleged MTN Lagos Fashion Week/Nigeria Fashion Week/African International Film Festival Trademark infringement case. Right now, I gotta take my seasonal vacation. So, I send my warmest thoughts and best wishes for a wonderful holiday and a very happy new year to you all. I’ll be back January 6th, 2012!

It’s gonna be “cray” in 2012. I am excited and I hope you all are too!!!! Below is my selection of 22 Hottest Songs by Nigerian Artists that rocked 2011. Some made legal headlines right here on For example 2Face ft. D’Banj’s I’m Feeling Good v. Kelly Hansome and Tipsy’s Emi Naa ni.

Still others like Flavour made a comeback when he dropped his video for this hot song “Adanma” this 2011. A shoutout to M.I’s Action Film who also dropped a video. Also, if you do not see your songs here, I have managed to listen to so many songs this year and have a little over 300 left to go through. In 2012, we ‘ve got 365days to go so hopefully your songs rock and I can share it with my audience. Keep making beautiful music Nigerian artists.

Special shout out to Nigeria’s music auxiliary/supporting services for without you guys, I am unsure the industry would (have) made the huge strides we have so far. I’m talking our music bloggers, magazines, broadcast media, DJs, Publicists and Public Relations Agencies. I salute you all. May God bless your hustles and multiply the fruits of your labor in 2012. Okay folks, “lean wid it, rock wid it”  and share with your friends and family. I’ll catch you all in 2012.  I am planning my rap debut like Vic-O in 2012 so watch out for that. Heeeey! “Why evils?” Don’t hate, congratulate.”Why evils,” really? All of you are a “weist.” Looool!

Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year in Advance! “Let the music pay!!!!”
