Our artiste made it look as if they were competing with each other from one hit to another.
Most of these songs being released are mid-tempo songs with nice rhythm.
We will be looking at the Number 1 song all the way to the Number 10 song in 2017.
1. Davido – If
Davido whose real name is David Adeleke.
I can still recall when ‘if’ came out almost every music person was caught with the song especially that part, ‘30 billion for the account’.
Every Tom and Harry knows when to sing that part.
I was surprised when I heard a child of about 4-years-old singing that part.
The song is on point and even the lyrics of the song becomes easier to sing along when once someone hears it for the third time.
The video of the song also boosts the popularity of the song. The song is being produced by our favourite boy Tekno.
2. Small Doctor – Penalty
Small Doctor whose real name is Micheal Owusu Addo.
This dude is known for dropping back to back hit songs.
He brought dynamics to the song as an indigenous singer that he is.
This song is a banger with no much argument.
This song shows that Small Doctor is a versatile artiste that has more to offer in the music industry.

Every party across the country, penalty is being played. 2T boyz is the producer of the song.

Runtown whose real name is Douglas Agu knows how to release mid-tempo songs that music lovers will be addicted to.
After releasing other dope songs, he went ahead to release another this one ‘mad over you’.

The same producer that has produced several hit songs for five-star music act Kcee.
4. Wande Coal & DJ Tunez – Iskaba
We all know Wande Coal for his singing ability.
His real name is Oluwatobi Wande.
He was formerly with Don Jazzy before he went ahead to start his record label ‘black diamond’.
He is one the vocalist I respect in the music industry when it comes to vocals and good lyrics.
Iskaba was like a missile bomb that anytime DJs play the song everybody goes gaga.
The song begins with ‘Oh my darling…. omo dakun’’.
The way it started the song shows he knows his craft perfectly. The song is being produced by Spellz.

Ycee whose real name is Oludemilade Martin Alejo his song ‘Juice’ obliges as a prelude to his much-anticipated extended play ‘The First Wave’ which was released on April 7th, 2017.
His EP comprises eight tracker which includes his hit single ‘Link Up’ and also features artists from Africa including Reekado Banks, Maleek Berry, Falz, Seyi Shay, KLY, Calibrii.
We need to give Adey credit as the producer for this song and Maleek Berry for his incredible vocal.
6. Olamide – Wo
Olamide’s name is Olamide Adedeji Olamide’s Wo is undoubtedly the most downloaded street song for 2017.
Baddo, as he’s fondly called, knows how to drop crazy street songs.
Many youths got into the Wo’s virus.
There’s the line in the song that got my attention ‘life is short like cigar’.
When I thought about it myself I saw sense in what he said.
Despite the controversial ban that was placed on the music video, fans are still digging it and people still enjoy the hilarious video was directed by Unlimited LA.
Young John is the wicked producer of the song.
7. Wizkid – Come Closer ft. Drake
Wizkid Starboy boss whose real name is Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun came out with his most expected Project ‘Sounds from The Other Side’.
This album Features a large number of international acts like Drake, Trey Songz, Major Lazer, Chris Brown, and Ty Dolla Sign.
Come closer featuring Drake was a track off his album.
That was recognized globally. The song was certified gold in International Market.
8. Mr Eazi – Leg Over
Mr Eazi whose real name is Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade.
The StarBoy signee ‘Mr Eazi’ whose win game for this year 2017 thus far has been with a clean sheet.
With all his fresh numbers of back to back hits he has released, the singer lineups up with a prolific music producer ‘E-Kelly’ in works to bring out a new tune coined known as ‘Leg Over’.
9. Davido – Fall
This song needs no introduction and validation for being on No 1 in the month of June.
The song ruled the airways and worth this spot.
Davido knows how to make his songs be on the lips of everyone because he has money to spend for the promotion.
Although, some people said the lyrics are somehow meaningless and the video’s line of thought doesn’t correspond to the song itself.
The song is still a hit and it’s being produced by Kiddominant.
10. Kiss Daniel – Yeba
This dude is so unique in terms of his songs and his writing prowess is what I admired most.
Kiss Daniel’s album emerged as the best album for 2016.
He hasn’t relent his effort after dropping ‘Sofa’ and his hands have been on deck.
This is a funkified high life song that got a lot of people on the dance floor.
Killertunes gave us a funky beat for this song. The rhythm guitar and the percussion were awesome.
