There are smart songs, dumb songs, intellectual songs, and there are Ridiculous songs.
And yes, we realize music isn’t just about lyrics. It’s about emotion and holistic appeal. But it can be pretty amusing when you look at the lyrics to your favorite song without any instrumental or rhythm. Actually, you might even start to wonder “what was the songwriter even thinking?” And truth be told, sometimes the songwriter probably wasn’t thinking, but hey, that’s art ayleast thats how we Nigerians see it. So, don’t get offended when your favorite piece of “art” ends up on our list. As Olamide would say “Chicken no dey fly for night” We’re not sure how that’s relevant to the point we’re trying to make, but then again we’re not exactly sure why it is necessary to state that in a song either.
Disclaimer: Before getting started, lets just try to understand something, this list is meant for humor and humor only. If you happen to be a fan of mindless party songs that include lyrics like “Sukura kilo ko si o, yeah!! Suku shaker, I am shoe maker” then that is fine, we’re not judging you. We’re just laughing at the songs you listen to.
