The month of October saw a reduced rate of song releases due to the nationwide protests around the country. Since most Nigerian songs are upbeat and quick tempo, they would have been an antithesis to the ambience of the country at the time. Reekado Banks painstakingly learnt this when Wizkid impertinently lambasted him for dropping a single during that period, even though Wizkid himself went on to release a full ‘unconscious’ album just two weeks later.
Nevertheless, October gave us jams to vibe to, and this list compiles the best songs to come out from the 1st day of the month to the 31st. To make the list very original and promote fairness, we have not included any remixes of an earlier released song, any cover or any song where a foreign act is the lead..
We have scoured and frisked through the largest database of Nigerian music to filter the best songs for the month of October. This list is based entirely on quality and not on the star status of any artist. We have selected only songs with an upload on Audiomack or YouTube, so as to provide our readers with the convenience of easy listening without leaving ForestGist.
So without further ado, here are the best songs from the month in ascending order:
10. Bode Blaq – Journey
9. Orezi – We Don Tire
8. Bella Shmurda – Cash App ft Zlatan & lincoln
7. Skales – Tell Us
6. Oladips – Mr Jide ft. Terry Apala
5. Dremo – OMG
4. Olamide – Greenlight
3. Dj Jimmy Jatt – Worry Me ft. Buju & 2Baba
2. Rudeboy – Oga
1. Kezie – Mandela
So there goes our list of best songs for the month of October 2020, the number one song is a revelation and it’s very surprising that a song of such quality is getting that little attention.
