5)
DARE ART ALADE ; the son of renowned entertainer, Dare lyrics are amazing. His song”original naija”was used as theme songs for first edition of big brother africa. His track “not the girl” has won numerous awards.

Verse 1:
I’ve been sitting here for two straight hours watching
you asleep
Wishing I could talk to you
There is no denying we both have emotions running deep
Oh! If I could talk to you
Cos I’m scared, cos when I try to take your hand you
are not there
And even though I see the signs you think I’m just
scared
Gimme one reason why I should hide my fears
When it’s killing me inside
Chorus:
You’re not the girl I used to know, you’re a shadow of
yourself
I think I lost you long ago, like a book that’s left a
shelf
I hear the footsteps down the hall and I know someday
that will be you
Leaving me for good

(4) ASA : her style of singing is evidence that she isnt a naija brought up. bukola Bamidele writes her songs in french,english and yoruba language. Her lyrics depends on her instantenious feeling focusing on country happening, life experience.

There is fire on the mountain
And nobody seems to be on the run
Oh, there is fire on the mountain top
And no one is running
I wake up in the morning
Tell you what I see on my TV screen
I see the blood of an innocent child
And everybody’s watching
Now I’m looking out my window
And what do I see
I see an army of a soldier man
Matching across the street, yeah
Hey, Mr. Soldier man
Tomorrow is the day you go to war
But you are fighting for another man’s cause
And you don’t even know him
What did he say to make you so blind?
To you conscience and reason
Could it be love for your country
Or for the gun you use in killing?
So there is fire on the mountain
And nobody seems to be on the run
Oh, there is fire on the mountain top
And no one is a runnin’

and that is the African beauty

Walking through that door
Girl, I knew you were the one

Baby, let me take it to the top
Let my loving fill you up
Until the morning comes
Every time I see your face
Tears of passion can be traced

one, two dreams come true

three, four knocking your door
baby you’re the woman i’m crazy for
five, six Pick you at six

seven, eight Wont be late
we’ll be going out on a special date
Chorus
I am lonely
waiting for your love to set me free
you want me
baby i’ll be your king, you’ll be my queen
together
i know we can reach out for the stars
come into my love boat
so we can sail the city…
Just cant get over this feeling that i want you desperately
Everynight I’m hold my pillow, you me, its all bout you and me
Every time I see your eyes
i feel this rush inside of me
that you were meant for me
and i was meant for you
that we were meant for us
baby girl its you and me forever

MR INCREDIBLE :
THE undisputed champion. He never repeats punch line.he changes lyrics with current happening. Nigeria liwayne who hardly uses vernacular.he is versatile too.

Love lyrics- one naira-ft waje
quaarel-beef(dealth with kelly handsome)
country lyrics- my head,(summary of naija).

For those expecting mr Habatically,akpako master,baddest boy and egberripapa.sorry for the disapointment. This list is to give kudos to artist who have taken time to write their tracks. Names like sasha, bankw w and tiwa salvage also deserve recognition
