Just like from his Dubai Honeymoon, 2Face Idibia returns to the coveted number one spot with “Ihe Neme” on this week’s MTV Base Official Naija Top 10, the definitive new chart of Nigerian contemporary music.
P-Square‘s “Alingo” from number one last week, completely leaves the chart this week, making room for two new entries as Olamide‘s “First Of All” exits as well. Tiwa Savage makes her debut on the chart at number nine for her groovy single with Don Jazzy, “Without My Heart”. And, so also does Darey‘s “Asiko”, making it Ice Prince‘s second concurrent chart entry as he already features at number five with “More”, a feat so far only achieved by Phyno and Olamide.
