Love is a beautiful thing and it is no wonder the world chose a unanimous date to celebrate it, February 14. On this day, feelings will be renewed, gifts will be exchanged, restaurants will be packed full and some ladies will say yes.
One item you cannot take out of the mix is great music, to set the mood and give the atmosphere the feeling it deserves.
Legit.ng has put together a list of golden love songs by Nigerian artistes that you and your partner will love. Call it a throwback if you like.
1. African Queen - 2face
This song was the ultimate reassurance that year, there was no woman who heard it and did not have extra shoulder pads because 2baba did not lie.
Listen to this with your partner or even send it to them, and see the extra gift that will come with your package.
Do not attempt to sing though, if you don't sound like the original artiste.
2. Angel of my life - Paul Play Dairo
Now, we know your woman does not have wings or a golden ring over her head but is she your angel? yes!
Listening to this song is guaranteed to make her feel extra special, so don't say we did not do anything for you.
3. No one like you - Psquare
Even though these brothers are no longer together, they gave us evergreen jams guaranteed to make you and your partner stick together like glue.
You want to tell your partner that you have searched the world and found no other like them? This jam is what you should listen to.
4. Love me x3 - Tiwa Savage
This Tiwa's classic had even the single people telling their anonymous lovers that they can only love them.
This is a great listen for Valentine's day, Tiwa never misses.
5. Orente - Adekunle Gold
Adekunle is the king of love songs with his indigenous infusion. In this particular song, he appreciated his woman, aka Orente.
So you already know why you should listen to this song.
6. True Love - 2face
There's probably no way you want to express love this season that this Legend has not dropped.
If you are looking to tell your partner the kind of love you want moving forward, 2face is your guy.
7. Ololufe - Wande Coal
This song asks a lot of questions, genuine ones, so you might want to listen to get a feel.
Even if you don't have questions to ask, Wande's voice is absolutely worth listening to.
8. Olo Mi - Tosin Martins
This is another song that screams reassurance, it is such a good listen, and if you are quite emotional, donate a tear or two for the culture.
There's no way you will listen to this with your partner and your chest will not do gbish gbish!!
9. Fall in love - D'banj
If you do not know this song, you are on a very long thing. This is one classic D'banj dropped that year that gave people the liver to profess their love to potential love interests.
Partner or not, this is a good listen and is a mood setter.
10. Fight for you - Adekunle Gold
No way to prove your love to someone other than this, to be honest. If you are going to hang out with your partner on Valentine's day, and you live in Lagos, please listen to this song for motivation.
11. Kedike - Chidinma
We talked about your heart doing gbish gbish earlier, well Chidinma says the rhythm is kedike.
This is a great song to listen to on Valentine's day, Chidinma's sonorous voice and the lyrics are magic.
12. Smile for me - Simi
Simi is another musician that paints love in the brightest of colours, and what better way to celebrate Valentine's day by listening to this song.
If you are listening with your partner and they have refused to get the memo that you want their mumu button, sing the lyrics out loud. You're welcome!
13. Ekuro - Davido
This is another reassurance tune way before Davido thought of dropping assurance for Chioma.
This jam is a great song and a good listen. Entertain yourself or your partner with a good dance while at it.
