Here’s what’s up in the Ada Ada vs. Durosoke battle on Twitter

Amidst the newly discovered cases of Coronavirus in Lagos and Akwa Ibom, Nigerians are taking a recess to argue about their favorite Nigerian music hits from the past few years. The Twitter jury is having a hard time deciding whether Ada Ada was a better hit than Durosoke or otherwise.

Released in 2012, Ada Ada was one of the most loved songs from Flavour’s album – blessed – and it quickly became a favourite at traditional marriage ceremonies especially in Eastern Nigeria. It was also used as a soundtrack for the Nollywood blockbuster ‘Wedding Party.’

A year after, Durosoke – a mid-tempo Yoruba song was released as the lead single from Olamide’s third studio album, Baddest Guy Ever Liveth and Nigerians equally fell in love with the tune. Without a doubt, we have always been lovers of good music, but since the quarantine began, particularly with the lockdown in Lagos and Abuja, Nigerians have developed a rare interest in online battles and comparisons.

Regardless of the fact that the Flavor song had a higher number of views than Durosoke, Olamide some fans maintain that Durosoke was a bigger hit. One Twitter user said:


Another Twitter user said:

In response, someone argued that Durosoke and Ada Ada were released around the same time but Korede Bello’s song was more recent, giving more people the opportunity to view with the increased access to smartphones and data.

Is it possible that we’re being sentimental in our thinking? Twitter needs an independent judge.
