      You really are into being African!
      Learning the language, songs and I’m sure you know more about Nigerian culture than most Nigerians. Great job.
      Holla whenever you need further Hausa lessons.
      In other news, I’d like to see a dance video with most of the songs in red. Adanna & David take note!

    Yeap! The red and Orange column are most listened to in the States at Nigerian/,African events. I don’t think there’s a wedding I attended in 2014, that didn’t Play Aye, Dorobucci, Johnny,surulere, African Princess, pullover ,etc. Kudos to all the Nigerian Artist because we they try.. Even other African Countries especially Cameroonians , play more Nigerian songs at their event.. But why is P-square &,Flavor ain’t on this list??? Or may I didn’t look properly

    The fact that they don’t have wizkid on the top 10,000 plays makes this compilation bogus! #OnTopYourMatter #Teamwizzy4life
