The Ultimate Nigerian Wedding Playlist

July 24, 2018
What’s not to love about Nigerian weddings. There is always free food, free booze, and good vibes. What I particularly love about Nigerian weddings is the music and in my opinion, no Nigerian wedding playlist can be complete without these songs.

No One Like You – P Square

The video alone is enough reason to add this song to your wedding playlist.

Wedding Day – 9ice

This song was made for Nigerian weddings.

Oruka – Sunny Nneji

I can remember how this song got played at every Nigerian wedding for years after this hit song was dropped.

Ada Ada – Flavour

Picking just one Flavour song to add to this list was hard. Every Flavour song is perfect for your wedding playlist.

Baby Girl – Nel Oliver

Here’s a classic for you. Nel Oliver’s ‘Baby Girl’ is evergreen.

Olomi – Tosin Martins

If you understand Yoruba then you don’t need to be convinced to add this song to your wedding playlist.

Forever – Paul Play

Because it’s your wedding day and you and your partner plan to be together forever.

Baby Jowo(remix) – Sir Victor Olaiya ft 2face

It was hard picking between the remix of this classic song and the original, in the end, 2face’s unique addition to the song won us over.

Be Your Man – Dipo

Dipo might not be as popular as the other artists on this list, but ‘Be Your Man’ makes for the most perfect love song ever.

Ololufe – Wande Coal

Its been 9 years since Wande Coal dropped Ololufe (yes you are old) but its still hard to imagine a Nigerian wedding playlist without it.

My Darling – Tiwa Savage

Tiwa Savage’s voice is at its finest in ‘My Darling’ and we can bet you the lyrics perfectly convey everything you feel about your husband/wife-to-be.

Ekuro – Davido

From Ekuro to Aye to If to Fall Davido keeps dropping the most perfect wedding playlist songs.

Love Me Jeje – Seyi Sodimu

You already know there was no way we could have left this classic of our list.

Obianuju – Duncan Mighty

This is almost every Nigerian’s favorite Duncan Mighty song and also the sweetest love song for those who might not understand all of the lyrics.

Orente – Adekunle Gold

Adekunle Gold’s Orente always has we single pringles clutching to our pillows at night wondering when the Lord will give us our own bae.

Iyawo Mi – Timi Dakolo

Fun fact- Timi Dakolo wrote this song for his wife.

Did we leave any song out?
