Top 10 Nigerian songs of the month (October) 2021
The month of October is coming to an end in the next few days, and it has become our monthly ritual to give you our list of top Nigerian songs released this month.
This month has witnessed a lot of drama in the music industry, and one of the popular dramas was the Tiwa Savage’s tape which went viral on social media, a few days after she dropped the visual of her song ‘Somebody’s Son’ featuring American star Brandy.
The tape saw Tiwa Savage being dragged on and off social media, with some reports alleging that some of her endorsement deals with some prominent firms in the country were cancelled.
In October, we also saw some Nigerian music stars dropping new songs to mark the End SARS memorial, which took place on the 20th of October.
