This Saturday is not only the return of HDD at the Camp but also Nigerian independence day (51 years old baby). So we at HDD decided to list the top 5 songs that represent Nigeria right now. You will not find any Fela Kuti on this list because although he is a legend, Nigerian music has evolved into a mix of american hip hop, pop and r and b. You can still find the African influence but you can also trace various outside influences in this growing genre. Music is still 1 of the few ways to escape poverty in Nigeria and with a various appetite and an intriguing record selling platform a nobody can become a superstar in days.
