The holidays are here again and everyone is excited! One of the ways to embrace the Christmas spirit is by immersing yourself in music that is centered on the festivities. Top Nigerian acts like vocal powerhouse; Waje, pop singer; Jaywon and more have taken it upon themselves to craft songs to help you get in tune with the season. Are you in need of Nigerian Christmas songs to bless your ears? Here`s a nudge in the right direction:
Waje: African soul singer, Waje Iruobe put a lovely highlife spin on the popular ”˜Silent Night` Christmas carol and made it into something you can groove to. She has also released ”˜Merry Christmas` and a collaborative effort with another amazing vocalist, Omawumi, titled ”˜Xmas Jollification` in the past.
Jaywon: Jaywon`s ”˜This Year` never ceases to be worth the listen especially at this time of the year when so many are looking to the New Year with hope and aspiration. The song always puts people in the mood to look forward to achieving great things in the coming year. This December, the independent artiste released yet another Christmas song named ”˜Another Christmas` with an accompanying Yoruba culture inspired video for his teeming fans.
