Sound Bytes: 2016 Nigerian Wedding Music Song Guide

We are almost half way through the year and every song by Nigerian artists have been a hit back to back. Music plays a big part in creating the right atmosphere at your wedding reception. Here are a few of our suggestions for your big day this year

Entrance Song

At Nigerian weddings, the couples arrival involves, dancing in with your bridal train, day ones and family friends lining the aisle. Our number one pick for this moment is “Osinachi” the hit by Humble Smith featuring Davido. The English translation xxx. Tiwa Savage’s “Standing Ovation” is also a great choice to put everyone in the mood for a good time

Humble Smith Ft. Davido – Osinachi


Tiwa Savage ft Olamide- Standing Ovation

Bouquet Toss

Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” has reigned long enough (Disclaimer: Beehive this is NOT a call to arms!! Lol)
Adekule Gold’s “Ready” is undisputedly the anthem for all singletons “single and searching” this year.

Adekule Gold - Ready

Father Daughter Dance

This dance is a perfect time for a throwback, “Baby Girl” By Nel Oliver, is an evergreen classic, bound to leave a few people misty eyed.

Mother Son Dance

The Ultimate Mama’s boy anthem for 2016 has to be Flavour and Chindma’s “Mama”. Sang entirely in Igbo, it’s a lovely song that describes the depth of a mother’s love

Flavour and Chidinma - Mama

First Dance

Every couple already has their “Our” song, but Timi Dakolo’s “Iyawo Mi”, has all the right words to define an everlasting love. If you are looking for something more upbeat “All I Want is You” by Banky W and Chidinma is an excellent choice.

Timi Dakolo - Iyawo mi


Banky & Chidinma- All I want is you

Cake Cutting

Historically the cake cutting ceremony symbolises the promise to forever provide for each other. Yemi Alade’s tongue in cheek “Ferrari” and Flavour and Chidinma’s “Ololufe” are our top picks in this category.
