It's Igbo day, Dammit!

Ndeewo my people. Eh hen, Kedu ka unu mee? If you didn't understand my greetings, ndo. Today, I am vexing and declaring it Igbo day. As we all know, there are not a lot of mainstream naija songs in Igbo, the ones we manage to hear sef have only a few lines of Igbo. As the true Igbo daughter that I am, I have decided to pay homage to my fellow Igbonians. I shall be posting some naija songs(old and new) that have Igbo in them. Listen and enjoy and hope you find one or two to add to your playlist.

P.S - I would like some feedback please. For the most part, I don't think people are interested in my music posts but I will still do them anyways but I'd like to know if you'd prefer I post music with the youtube videos attached or just list the song title and name of song. Please let me know. Have a good day!

My current favorite naija song (first verse is in Igbo)- Temperaure Rise by Big Dreams ft Pype (I am still amazed as to how this dude sounds just like Sean Paul)

I just love that "Ukwu nka na gbaka m'isi" part. Ogini na fio!: Kelly Handsome - Like Play

">

Sweet sweet Igbo love song with my darling favorite rapper. Obi mu o - Obiwon

">

From the dudes that gave you Yori Yori. Ada Owerri - Bracket ft J Martins

">

As much as I love my Mo' Hits crew, this diss track by Kelly Handsome cracks me up everytime. "Iti kom kom" lol. Kelly Hansome - Igwe(kom kom)

">

Okwa n'abania, ife nine ga eme! Flavour - N'abania

People feel free to add yours also. I am always on the hunt for new music so I will be sure to check it out.

Kelly Hansom is the man. Check out love gbawasia oku by him as well.
And 'My father' by Obiwon.
Anything by Bracket.
And my man Flavor of course.
I'm also feeling the artist TJ, the man can sing.
Have you listened to any of the Nigga Raw albums? Those are pretty nice.
