#AHMusicReview 10 hottest songs released by Nigerian artistes in 2017

No doubt 2017 has been a good year for the Nigerian music industry as the year has been filled with hits after hits and with that the Absolute Hearts Music Review team has decided to do a compilation of the 10 hottest songs for the year 2017.
READ: #AHAlbumReview: Top 10 music albums released by Nigerian artistes in 2017

Note: all the songs here are songs released from January to October 2017
1.      Reminisce - Ponmile: Many have argued that this is probably the best conscious song of the year but what we all have agreed on is that this is definitely a fire jam for Reminisce. The way this song took over was very much amazing and when the video dropped there was no stopping this song from becoming one of the hottest songs.
2.      Qdot - Apala: This is another song that became an instant national anthem immediately it dropped and till this very moment the vibes of this song is still hot. Qdot really got the street and the club dancing to this lovely Apala vibes and of course making the chache slang spread more.
3.      Niniola - Maradona: This is an example of slow and steady wins the race, it took this song a while to sink in but immediately it did, the Maradona virus began to spread everywhere. By the way Niniola has dropped her debut album This Is Me and you can check out the review here.
4.      Davido - If: In my own honest opinion this has to be song of the year, the way this song took over was amazing. From the street to the clubs even over the shore, this song has a cosmic effect all over. To top it all the King of R&B R.Kelly had to do a remix of the song, to be honesty nobody saw this coming even Davido himself didn’t expect it but I guess the magnitude of the song spoke for itself. Credits has to go to Tekno also for the great production on this song.
5.      Falz ft. Ycee – Something Light: One of the ways to know that a song is a hit is if there is a line of that song that the street adopts into a slang and of course Something Light is a slang people are now using. The Sess (The Problm Kid.) produced track really hit the industry hard as people are still very much bumping to the song.
6.      Small Doctor - Penalty: No offense but every sane person completely goes insane once this song comes on like an air bound disease, the way this song was and still spreading is amazing. No doubt this is one of the best street songs of the year.
7.      Olamide - Wo!!: I’m still waiting for that year that Olamide won’t have that hit song that will turn the whole country upside down, from the moment this song dropped the music industry changed as it spread like wide fire and still spreading. Produced by Young John (The Wicked Producer) Wo is officially one of the hottest street song of 2017. You can check out Olamide Lagos Na Wa album review here
8.      Davido - Fall: This might be hard to believe but if we are being honest, 2017 belongs to Davido, the quality of songs he released this year has been top quality and winning and 2 awards at the recently done MTV Europe Award proves that. Reuniting with Kiddominant for the production of this one, Fall didn’t waste time in taking over and till date the jam is still going strong.
9.      Ycee ft. Maleek Berry - Juice: From the moment this song dropped and even till now the fever of this song is still spreading. The Maleek Berry produced song really gave Ycee a good 2017 and also helped strengthen Maleek Berry's position in this industry. To show much impact the song had, Ycee went on to win the best African Hop Hip award at the AFRIMA 2017.
10.  Wizkid - Daddy Yo: This song came at the right time, the whole country has been given a feel of the new Wizkid sound but many were still itching for some of those old sounds but Wizkid did even better with this song as he combined his new sound with his old vibes and gave us Daddy Yo, a song that was an instant hit the moment it dropped.  You can also check out our review of Wizkid's Sounds From The Other Side album here.
Worth mentioning: Destiny Boy - Juice (Cover): Yes this boy is really bursting my brain with this his Fuji cover, we might just have another Tcode or LKT in the making. Credit has to be given to Destiny Boy, since I heard this song I haven’t been able to sing the normal version, there is something about this Fuji version that I like. This is our own little way of encouraging the young lad, keep it up.

So there you have it folks our very compilation of the hottest song for the year 2017, we are very sure some of you might not agree to the list so free feel to drop any song(s) we missed out in the comment section.
