HAPPY FRIDAY AML PEOPLE! We made it! This week was a lot for me o. Nevertheless, I managed to sift through tons of mp3 songs in my inbox and did not even make a dent. LOL! I had thousands to look through (three months adds up fast) and I got to a place where I was like, “Yo. I can’t.” LOL! Sowwy folks. If I missed you and you think your song is as fly as the songs in my compilation, then hit me up at (email@example.com) and I will TRY to take a listen for the next batch/edition.
For now, industry people, DJs, promoters, entertainment lawyer colleagues, from the “Amerikas” to Africa :), Nigerians, non-Nigerians and everyone in between reading this, below are 15 of the hottest songs out of the giant of Africa, the center of today’s contemporary African music revolution, that I think you should rock to on this AML 15 Hottest Nigerian Songs to ROCK To, Numero 1 Edition.
Many of these artists are now on Itunes so look them up there to purchase the songs you like, otherwise find them on twitter or google them.
Enjoy, tell me what songs you would have added to this compilation from Nigeria. If you want to bring my attention to other regions, feel free to drop a comment or email me. Please don’t spam. I’ll delete it.
Have a great weekend ahead.
