Is it even a Nigerian pop song until somebody mentions a girl’s name? 😏
Since the days 9ice was name-calling Alimo, Basirat, Kafayat on “Kasa Final,” there has not been a shortage of that trend in Nigerian music.
Either you’re a fan of Wizkid or Davido, or Tekno, or Kizz Daniel or Olamide, chances are your guy has mentioned one girl’s name on a track before.
Some of the favorites for Nigerian artists are Folake and Sade. I don’t know who Folake is o, but I know that our artists love her. From Wizkid to Falz to Tekno, Folake is a regular.
And what about Sade? Omo. Wizkid will mention Sade, Wurld will mention Sade, even Fireboy won’t carry last. Everybody wants a piece of Sade, apparently. The list is gone, if I want to continue.
For instance, another one is Falilat. Olamidehad a song in 2014 called “Falilat Ketan,” and Dammy Krane around the same time did a song for Falilat too. Omo. 🤓
But let me leave it for you guys!!
