  1. Song of the Decade? Skelewu? Howwwwww?

    • how is skelewu part of d list

  2. Sure

  3. Where’s bizzy body by psquare and baraje by rugged man?

  4. Well nice picks…. I think I agree.

  5. Caro – wizkid
    Jaywon’s first video dnt knw the songs title
    Timaya’s. BUm BUM
    There a lot u didn’t have to put DJ Jim bla bla

  6. What are you talking about, the panelist did justice to the list, going by the criteria’s given for choosing the tracks, for me this is fair.

    Any artist not satisfied with it should hang himself.

  7. Skelewu no be song of decade o

  8. what is skelewu doing on the list where is Jagajaga by Idris Abdulkareem skelewu is more. of a contemporary song they don’t know the meaning of decade

    • Mr. Decade? What do u understand by decade?
      We talking of songs that has made waves in the last ten yrs and u saying skelewu shouldnt be there?
      Skelewu was a massive hit in its time so it more than deserves to be there.
      Flavour should have something there I think..

      • Skelewu doesn’t deserve to be on the list, because it was a hit doesn’t mean it should make the list. I would have even managed to accept if it was Dami duro. Skelewu is meaningless. Jaga Jaga by Idris should be there. Timaya’s Dem mama should be there.

      • why is flavour not in that list,even style plus suppose to be there eg like “imagine that” and others

  9. Songs of the decade I don’t agree wit dis decade means ten yrs back is skelewu,hola @ ur boi up to decade?few artist merit it,likes of street credibility,nfana ibagaa,mr leture nd so on pls I dnt knw wat criterial use in selecting dis top 20

  38. sum pple dnt tink before typing. How can skelewu be among d lists of songs sang a decade ago? Meaning 10 yrs back…… Lol…. Am sure davido is sumwhere laffin out his head….. Compilation list la nonsense

    • Point of correction, songs of d decade means from 2006 till now. It’s not like I think skelewu should be there o, but by time frame, it’s qualified.

  39. For all those people insulting tooxclusive this not a list made by tooxclusive oh. Actually watched this ish on MTV today it was so fucked.. It a big disrespect to the life of rugged man, faze, darey, idris, timaya and many more.

  40. Where the fuck did Skelewu come from? Skelewu ko. Skele Okuko ni. No be Ewu na Okuko

  41. Shoki by lil kesh made more wave that skelewu.. Is it becus the guy did 2 video for one song,m. Dami duro made mre wave dan skelewu.. Men this list is fucked.. Were is free madness..

  45. Peeps be getting angry over tins dat no1 is getting paid 4. Everyone has an opinion so don’t xpect d whole list to go your way.

  46. O boy !! I guess pple really don’t get the fact that Nigeria music Industry has grown a lot in the past 10yrs (a decade) and to be able to select top 20 songs that everyone will be satisfied with is a Nah Nah, cos every1 has a different point of view. My list would be different from theirs even your list is a thing pple will still complain about……….why not Most played songs on Mtv in the past decade in Nigeria…#My Opinion

  47. I really don’t comment on blogs buh I fnk I shd on dz marra….I wonder if some people don’t understand the meaning of decade,it means 10 yrs aqo if y’all don’t have a Lexicon wiv you…Who knows Skelewu n Holla at your boi 10 yrs aqo nt even d sonq d artist sef Wixkid n Co who knws dem 10 yrs aqo….Wen you tlknq abt Sonq ov d decade it shd b Psquare,D’banj,Mohit Records,Ruqqedman,Stereo Man n d Rest ov dem nt all this Younq Niqqa dat don’t knw wat dey are sinqnq n yet still beef each oda like dey wl b paid 4 beefnq

  64. I agree dat der r som songs dat shld be here dat aren’t n some dat r here dat shldnt be buh den som ppl tink ‘of d decade’ means only 10yrs ago (2004)… Songs from 2004 to 2014, dats d period biko nu… And come to tink of it, most of u given d opportunity to bring out dis list, will still produce list dat millions will criticize cos E NO EASY AT ALL… How many u wan rememba? U be Encyclopedia of Music… U r remembering dem now cos u r commenting from home, n I bet som of us here even had to go bak to our archive to pen down som of des songs we r clamoring for… Make we put una for hot seat now make we see how many u go rememba at dat particular tym…

  81. 1) How does ‘Fall in Love’ make the cut but ‘Tongolo’ is not here??
    2) ‘Holla At Ur Boy’ was a definite jam but shouldn’t be in this list.

    At the risk of sounding like a snob, there doesn’t seem to be any standard criteria followed?? Was it commercial success or was it landmark songs that changed the game so to speak.

  82. Una go for put Y ME instd of oliver twist na by dbanj abi. Una don forget dat music

  107. rubbish list done by inexperienced opportuned people. Is oleku, jailer, safe, hotter than tuface my love, for instance, p square bizzy body, roll it.Infact kukere, do me and yahooze are hottest naija songs ever. in terms of sweetness, paul play angel of my life, senorita psquare, i love you, shekini are sweeter than most of these songs. the list tried but its not well arranged and in terms of videos, the worst videos by psquare are better than the best video of any other artiste in Nigeria. no danfo drivers lol

  108. no yori pori, ikwokrikwo adamma raw obodo. remove skelewu, lagos party, holla at your boy asa, and put sweet songs on this useless list. remove chop my money bcuz psquare has more better songs like bizzy body 1 and 2, temptation, omoge mi, infact all psquare and tubaba songs fit full that list with some exceptions like yahooze, fall in love, kukere, yori yori. this list sholud be reviewed because it was done bu opprtunists. I dont see what any of thses men, most of them have done to the industry rather than making noise and signing noise making artistes. only few are good.

  109. Pls Skelewu is out of it and where is Badoo by Olamide?
