10 Nigerian Songs For Your Coronavirus Playlist

March 23, 2020

With the reported cases of Coronavirus in Nigeria rising, it’s time for us to play our parts in preventing further spread. So, we’ve curated 10 Nigerian songs that should help you remember just how serious this entire ordeal is.

1. Asa’s “Fire On The Mountain”

Even though this song is over a decade old, it feels quite apt right now. There is clearly “Fire On The Mountain”, and a lot of Nigerians don’t seem to be on the run.

2. Burna Boy’s “Collateral Damage”

Unless more Nigerians start taking this virus seriously, it’s inevitable that many people will end up being “Collateral Damage” in the wake of someone else’s stupidity.

3. Runtown’s “International Badman Killa”

With the virus currently ravaging over 190 countries, racking up a death toll of about 14,000, it’s safe to say that COVID-19 is the real “International Badman Killa”.

4. Davido’s “Risky”

Since you can’t know for sure where anyone has been or who they’ve touched, it’s best to follow Davido’s instruction and assume that everyone’s body is potentially “Risky”.

5. Wizkid’s “Fever”

The most common symptom of the virus is a “Fever”. If you feel hot to touch on your chest and back, there’s no need to panic. Just follow these simple instructions.

6. Naira Marley’s “Soapy”

Right now, the safest sexual partner is yourself. So, while “Soapy” may have been too crass for some when it first dropped, it’s currently the masturbation anthem we need.

7. Mr Eazi’s “Miss You Bad”

As soon as we all start self-isolating, “Miss You Bad” will feel even more poignant. Just make sure you check up on those you love during these stressful times.

8. Fireboy DML’s “Scatter”

With the number of reported cases in Nigeria rising on a daily basis, it should go without saying that any kind of party or social gathering should immediately “Scatter”.

9. DJ Neptune’s “Nobody”

One of the best Nigerian tracks out right now also happens to be the ideal anthem for social distancing. So, as the song says, we don’t want to see you with “Nobody”.

10. Odunsi’s “Better Days”

While it might feel like the entire world is coming to an end, it’s necessary to look forward to “Better Days”. If we don’t, we might all lose our collective minds.
