If you’ve ever been at a party with Yoruba men or been around them for long, you’d certainly have heard these songs play around them. These songs set them in the mood to be themselves, be free and party till they drop. 

We’ve rounded up the ultimate Yoruba men’s anthem.

Lagos Boys — Olamide

When Olamide released Lagos Boys, it was as though he released the lifelong anthem for all Yoruba men worldwide. I’m not even a Yoruba man, and I used to dream of having this song performed at my wedding for my first dance. Are you even a Yoruba man if you didn’t jam this song?

Abule Sowo — Olamide

Ok, I have Olamide here again because he’s the OG for giving Yoruba men and women the choicest songs for getting in the groove. He knows the jams we need to listen to when we want to feel good and dance. A hitmaker for real.

Sungba — Asake

Sungba is relatively new, but it’s currently the best song in the world, making all already proud Yoruba men even prouder.

Asake’s “Sungba” Is the Best Song in the World, and Here’s Why

Lagos Party — Banky W

The year is 2022, and there’s still no party like a Lagos party. Lagos Party is a feel-good song for Yoruba men that makes them feel on top of the world and spend even more money. It’s also a calmer bop for the rich millennial Yoruba man to show disguised wickedness. 

Ade ori okin — K1 De Ultimate

Are you around a Yoruba man if you’ve not heard this song play so randomly? Yeah, some parts of the song is a prayer, but the song reinforces the Yorubaness in Yoruba men that many of them have it on their playlists. If you snoop around enough, you might even find this song in a Yoruba man’s sex playlist. 

Dami Duro — Davido 

Who else do you know that’s also rushing, if not a Yoruba man? Yoruba men are always in a rush, and that’s why they love Dami Duro. They also love to look like they have money, even though the money they might be showing off isn’t really theirs.

Pakurumo — Wizkid

Sincere apologies to all the women named Funke worldwide who didn’t catch a break when this song came out; we’re sorry on behalf of Wizkid. Every babe mentioned in this song was a victim of being asked to Pakurumo, and some of them still haven’t recovered in 2022. 

Ojuelegba — Wizkid 

Even the Yoruba men who grew up with silver spoons were singing, “Ni ojuelegba, they know my story” my friend, who knows your story?” Who knows which story?

Feel Bad — MohBad

Is there a chance I’m also a Yoruba man since I also love this song, and it was also my anthem? Also, why did Mohbad gbera lati 4:30 (ask a Yoruba friend for the meaning please)? My theory is that he lived in Mowe and worked in Sangotedo, but I digress. I sha hope God delivers Yoruba men from the many enemies that are following them sha.

KPK— Rexxie ft MohBad 

Maybe the lyrics are a little crass, but that doesn’t matter to a Yoruba man who wants to catch a vibe. This song was a party starter. “Who wants to say it’s not plenty, it’s big, it’s plenty.” — Rexxie, 2020.
