5 non-secular hit songs by Nigerian secular artistes

Africa, especially Nigeria is where religious beliefs are held in high esteem.

We tend to always remember that there is a Supreme being in the heavens that determines our fate.

Christians, Muslims and even traditionalists often believe they owe their successes to God or a higher power, and as for failures- it’s the devil’s fault.

This transcends even to the artistes in the Nigerian music industry, particularly the secular ones, who often time, include a worship or gospel-like track in their albums.

Here are 5 of such artistes.

Oluwa Lo Ni –Wizkid

Wizkid speaks on his dreams, aspirations and hope for the future on this song off his debut album- Superstar.


2. Ogologoma –Timaya

Timaya took us to church with this one.


3. Bless Me – Davido featuring May D

Off his debut album OBO: The Genesis, Davido made sure he showed appreciation to God for the amazing year he had.


4. Jehovah – Wande Coal

Wande Coal had quite a lot to be thankful for. From one of the toughest ghettos in Lagos, he went from nobody to a superstar. Why won’t he praise Jehovah?

5. Godwin – Korede Bello

Mavin starlet, Korede Bello would forever be grateful to God for bringing him across Don Jazzy who in turn produced this award winning hit song.
