Olamide | Abule Sowo

Despite gaining over 150,000 additional views since Top Ten Naija Music Videos online’s debut, this masterpiece from the King of Streetz Music, Olamide dropped over 8 spots.

It would seem since our last week’s countdown, Olamide’s fans have decided to explode its views as its gained over 300k+ views in a week. Impressive!

Word out is YBNL has just signed it’s first official female @ybnlprincess who’s Instagram is already lit! despite having only 1 pics and not officially unveiled.

Not surprising anyways, heard she’s good and of course na YBNL naa.

Excerpts from S1 E1 edition:

Baddoo, the musically confidence of coughing out hits after hits like he just goes under his pillow to pick up ideas and lyrics releases this video.

Just a week after dropping the single to mark his adding another year to his age, king of the street, Olamide, drops the official visual to the hitmaker “Abule Sowo”.

Taking it back to the roots with costume, location and not forgetting to mention the song in itself, this is just another dope creation from Olamide.

Timaya | I Like The Way (New entry)

Released in January, this video didn’t not start gaining rapid views until the end of March till April ending. It has seen over 4934 shares, and gained 529 subscriptions from people who viewed the video.

Timaya has been one of the most successful Nigerian artistes in the last 10 years, and although it seems like a new era, he continues to drop relevant music in today’s Nigerian music world.

This video kicks out Falz | Soldier from the chart.

Yemi Alade | Ferrari (Drops 1 spot)

Although its gained over 120k views since last week, it fails to retain its no 6 spot snatched by new entry Banky W which has done impressively within a week.

And there’s been speculations that Yemi Alade’s Ferrari is a reply to Davido’s massive track Aye. Read the review here: Is Yemi Alade’s Ferrari, a response to Davido’s Aye?

Following the release of Yemi Alade’s critically acclaimed sophomore album “Mama Africa (The Diary of an African Woman)”; the Effyzzie Music diva releases the music video for “Ferrari”.

The high-life track which is produced by DJ Coublon and features strings from Fiokee serves as the album’s official third single; following the dance anthem “Do As I Do” featuring DJ Arafat and the Selebobo assisted gratitude preaching hit “Na Gode”.

The music video for “Ferrari” was shot by the award-winning Clarence Peters and features Nollywood heartthrob Kunle Remi. Watch, share, enjoy and buy “Mama Africa (The Diary Of An African Woman)”!

Banky W ft Chidinma | All I want is You (New entry)

This beautiful Song produced by T.K; the video was Written, Produced & Directed by Banky W for EME & TILT Productions, and shot in Lagos Nigeria.

Banky playfully takes on tribalism with this video… it’s a modern day Nigerian Love story, where we see Banky & Chidinma’s characters falling for each other, despite the disapproval of her parents (two of Nigeria’s most legendary and iconic Entertainers, Zack Orji & Onyeka Onwenu).

In these days when the term #YorubaDemons has both been a cause for humor and concern, the video playfully shows just what lengths one can go to fight for the chance to love.

New Video of the week

Tiwa Savage | If I Start To Talk

Amidst the controversial marital problems that filled social media this week about the supposed power couple, This video released just 3 days ago seems to gain its rightful huge number of views.

With 245,243 views, all might not be well with Tee billz and Tiwa, however the Tiwa Savage brand remains unshaken.

Dr. Sid was awesome in this video in between.

Poorest performed Video of the week

Timi Dakolo | The Vow

Timi is no doubt in a class of his own and only very few Nigerian artistes can compare to his consistency and style of music.

Personally and because my choice of music, I believe Timi, Tuface, Darey, Dbanj, Korede Bello, MI, Tiwa Savage, Davido and WizKid, fall among the top ten best artiste within the last 20 years.

Its a wonder however, what the Timi Dakolo crew do to promote his materials especially online.

No matter how good, music is, promotions play a vital part of its success. C’mon Dakolo!
