Top 10 Nigerian Songs That Could Have Won Grammys “IF” Streams Really Determine Nomination

Published by on November 27th, 2020.


 Considering the Massive attention that has shifted to the Nigerian music Sphere, the rate of acceptance of our style and type of music has been globally accepted and the numbers of streams have improved beyond forecast.

However, those streams do not determine getting a Grammy nomination despite the wide range of acceptance and airplays.

As Your Number 1 Online Platform, here is our selection of the best Nigerian songs that could have gotten a Grammy if number of streams really matter

Note:- These songs are arranged in no particular order

👉   Runtown – Mad Over You

This was the song that defined an entire era of Nigerian music.

This era was the heavy Ghana-influenced sound of 2016. It was also the biggest song of 

2016.

Changed the whole settings of nigerian artistes and gathered over 113 million views

 D’banj – Oliver Twist

More like a way opening to more interesting and jaw dropping international collaborations, D’banj proved his worth with this cracker alongside Kanye West

Coming off his last projects with his then duo Don Jazzy, the magic Squeezed off almost 60 million views.

Davido – Fall

Considering the controversies, wide range of acceptance and most especially 180 million views of this song, at least 4 Grammy awards are supposed to fall on David – No Cap

The song is the biggest cross-over Nigerian pop song ever. It charted on Billboard’s digital airplay chart.

The weirdness is how the song began charting in the US two years after its release. Cardi B also leaked an unreleased remix to the song.

  Wizkid – Come Closer


The composure of this song, the collaboration, the standard, and every thing about this track is so much on point. WTF

Drake was at his peak during this track and this should have influenced at least a Grammy award nomination perhaps (Best collaboration category) .

With a massive 97 million views, this song is indeed a strong contender for a spot in any slot if it was nominated back then.

 Burna Boy – Ye!

African Giant!!! Ever prayed for a breakthrough? This is a way opening, Ground breaking, and mighty song that gave Burna boy the platform he graved for.

Did i hear someone say this song generated over 114 views? the craziest thing is that most of these streams were generated from outside the country.

Burna Proved he was truly a force to reckon with this.

 Yemi Alade – Johnny

With over 111 million views, Yemi Alade introduced herself to the world in what can be said to be the most stylish ever way

This was the biggest pop song by a female Nigerian artist in the past decade. It also catapulted Yemi Alade into superstardom.

  PSquare – Personally

.

Before these duos beef became a personal one, they proved they still have wonders together.

With what must be called an outstanding synergy, the result was a cracker – This track was the life of all parties back then and we were all thinking it will get several international nomination but we were snubbed once again.

This was one of the final mega hits of P Square’s run with 102 million views.

  Davido – If

 If truly Grammy was all about streams, this song should get at least 2 nominations. With 118 million views, this is a legendary track too.

‘Fall’ might have been the biggest cross-over song from Davido’s immense 2017 run, but ‘IF’ started that run.

 Tekno – Pana

Tekno Scattered everywhere with this song back then, It should even go down the history of Nigeria as one of the best songs with the longest reigns

With over 116 million streams, In 2016, this song was huge in the US – especially the major cities

Sometimes, its not about how far but how well. I mean, these songs are extremely monster hits enjoyed across Nigeria.

These songs are songs that are played without request in foreign countries and are often the talk of their time but they never get any massive international award nominations like Grammy.

However, Thanks that Burna Boy is getting the attention the Likes of Wizkid and Davido didn’t get during their peaks.

He should rather win in this album category and from there, we will see if the next edition will give us more nominations is bigger and better categories.
