These Christian Songs Are Nostalgic for Every Nigerian Christian Adult

February 27, 2022

If you grew up in a Christian household, we’re certain you heard these songs more times than you cared to. These songs were an essential part of your Sunday morning worship sessions or Saturday morning cleaning rituals. 

1. Igwe – Midnight Crew

We’re sure you danced to this song during choreography sef. 

2. Chinwe Ike – Resonance

This song was so fresh and different when it was released. A bop.  

3. Every album Tope Alabi ever released 

If you had a Yoruba mum, we’re sure you listened to Tope Alabi songs all the time. Even if you don’t remember all her songs, you definitely know this one.

4. Every Sola Allyson album ever released 

Ife Bi Eji Owuro isn’t particularly a  “Christian” song, but it still counts. 

5. Gbanari ikpe chukwu – Bro Israel Anyanele 

6. Trading my sorrows – Women Of Faith 

Did you really grow up in a Christian household if you didn’t trade your sorrows? If you dig deep into your brain, we’re sure you can still remember the choreography you did to this song. “Yes Lord, yes Lord, yes, yes, Lord”

7. Shackles – Mary Mary 

Between children’s church teachers and primary school music teachers, we don’t know who was more determined to get those shackles off our feet so we could dance. 

8. Every song Ayefele ever sang 

“Many, many, many, people, listened to a lot of Ayefele songs. And you were one of them. 

9. Nkem Ka Nma –  Paul Nwokocha 

10. Revolution – Kirk Franklin

You were a cool kid if this song is etched in your memory. You were already trying out “American version” Christianity.
