You’ll find a Nigerian song about everything; politics, food, drugs… everything. On today’s Ranked, I’m looking at Nigerian songs about butts.

What’s your favourite Nigerian song about butts?

9. “Lalakukulala” – Oladips ft. Reminisce 

You’ll probably forget this song is about butts by the time you begin to dance. Nice song. I can’t make much out of the lyrics, but it’s a very nice song to vibe to.

8. “PXTA” – Naira Marley

Control the crowd, control the crowd. Marlians come forward, the rest fuck off… and then just a whole lot of twerking. This song’s video is the definition of “Show, don’t tell”.

7. “Booty Language” – Skales ft Sarkodie

How do you say booty in your language?

6. “Bum Bum” – DMW, Davido & Zlatan

Apart from the chorus, which has a lot of “bumbum” in it, there isn’t a lot that says this song is about butts. In any case though, it’s a good song with the usual Davido energy.

5. “Bombay” – Wizkid ft Phyno

This is a fact: wherever you hear the chorus of this song, everyone is singing along. It’s also crazy that this song dropped over six years ago, but you’re hearing it play very clearly in your head.

4. “Shiga” – Vector

Vector was such a perv in the video of this song, but I can’t even lie, this song is an absolute bop. There’s also that part where I always bite my tongue “Shebiwolomdepelukinigbangashigari”.

3. “Rora” – Reekado Banks

I love how he’s singing about her butt and it sounds like a love song. But I put this song on reply just so I can hear the line “Eledumare give you face in addition to bumbumbumbumbum”. I love it.

2. “Ukwu” – Timaya

Fun fact: You can’t say “Ukwu” without your mind playing the beats that follow. Great, timeless song. Timaya knows the work.

1. “Iskaba” – Wande Coal

Wande Coal dropped a banger with Iskaba and 2017 knew about it. It always kills me that he tried to pull a Bruno Mars with the video. The song is super dope though. It deserves this number one spot.
