Using music to express yourself isn’t something we’re unfamiliar with. People use songs to convey messages and pour their hearts out, and that’s why love songs are essential.
These Nigerian love songs are perfect to help you convey the emotions you feel and can’t put into words.
1. Orente — Adekunle Gold
Rent was overdue when Adekunle Gold released Orente, and if that tells you anything, it’s that it’s a song you sing to someone when you have more love than you have money. This song is a perfect, “I don’t have it all together yet, but I have potential” proposal song.
2. Obim — Timi Dakoko, Noble Igwe and Ebuka
Tears well up in my eyes when I hear this song, and I neither understand a word of Igbo nor have anyone I’m in love with. Obim is the perfect song to sing to the woman you’re in love with. It’s an amazing proposal or first dance song too. There’s no occasion you’ll play Obim for your woman and it won’t make her head swell.
3. African Queen — 2Baba
Focus more on the song and ignore the messenger, please. African Queen is a song for millennials who’re trying their hands at hot romance.
4. Streets — Dwin, The Stoic x Rhaffy
Streets is the song to send to the person you’re in a serious talking stage with. Send Streets to them when you’re ready to go from being in a talking stage straight to being in a serious relationship with them. “These streets don tire me” is a direct message.
5. Toh Bad — Niyola
Toh Bad isn’t a good kind of love song. It’s about a woman who’s in love with a man who’s not good for her. You can listen to this song when you’re heartbroken and need to remind yourself that you deserve better.
6. All My Life — M.I Abaga ft Oxlade
Play All My Life when you meet a woman and you’re sure you want to spend the rest of your life with her. Also, play the song at all your vow renewals after that because we’re more than sure she’s going to say yes to your proposal.

7. Never Far Away — Lagbaja
Never Far Away is a song about lost love. It’s a song that’s going to remind you of the one who got away. You may no longer be with them, but that doesn’t mean you love them any less.
8. 411 — Nonso Bassey
Only listen to 411 when you’ve foolishly fallen in love with your situationship partner. There’s a small chance I’m talking from experience. 411 is the song you listen to when you know you’ve been lied to and possibly gaslit.
9. Ocean — Asa
Ocean is a warm song for new lovers. It’s a song that’s perfect to tenderly express the love you feel for your partner in a sweet way without feeling like you’re being overbearing with how much you love them.
10. Park Well — Tiwa Savage ft Davido
Park Well is a beautiful first dance song (don’t disagree). The instrumentals and the lyrics of the song are wedding perfect.
