It’s Mother’s day again on Sunday, March 26, 2017. The special day is to be commemorated worldwide on various levels. To mark the day, Pulse Music serves you five heart-warming Nigerian songs you could use to make your irreplaceable mother feel loved, smile and dance to.
1. Wizkid Mummy mi
Not one of his very popular songs but it’s one the Starboy holds very dear to his heart, which we are sure your mums would appreciate just as much as Wizkid’s mama. ‘Mummy mi’ is off the singer’s sophomore album “Ayo”.
2. Lil Kesh Ishe
Ishe’, a fan favourite song of Lil Kesh will definitely be pleasing to render to moms for the circumstance in which the song presents itself, relatable to many growing youths who have had to leave their moms perhaps at an early age to go hustle for that better life, and still yet look back to praise their moms for the good and tender loving they were given growing up.
3. Asa Beautiful
Soul singer Asa presents this acoustic guitar-stringed song of adoration and gratitude to all mothers in this powerful rendition ‘So beautiful’. Words cannot do justice to the emotions she poured out to roll out this song. You’d just have to listen and soak it all in for better appreciation. Definitely a worthy song to sing to your gracious mama.
4.Prince Nico Mbarga – ‘Sweet mother’
Without a doubt, this iis the official Nigerian song for mothers. Everything about the song just gels. The beautiful Highlife classic number by Prince Nico which was recorded alongside his band Rocafil Jazz, a fusion of Igbo and Congolese guitar lines and English pidgin vocals is sure to tickle your mu m with nostalgic laughter and smiles.
