Some will spend the night in the church, some will hit the clubs while many others will be at various end of the year concerts celebrating their way into the New Year.
Indeed there is every reason to look back and give thanks and also every reason to celebrate.
As we begin on a fresh note, here are 3 songs that you need to have on your play list as we kick-start 2016.
- This Year by Jaywon – Released couple of years ago and has grown into the most played song across all music channels, both radio and TV at this point every year. It is a song of prayers, a song of positive confession and a song of hope going into the New Year. With the current happenings within the nation, this is a must play.
- Odun Tuntun by Aramide – The soul singer makes a return with this lovely tune titled ‘Odun Tuntun’ which is translated to mean ‘New Year’ released only a few days ago, it is also a powerful song seeking God’s blessings and favor as She begins a journey into the unknown.
- Great Nation by Timi Dakolo – We all, or at least a fair percentage of the country tuned into the Presidential Media Chat last night and the general fallout is that 2016 would be a year where the Nation will have to grind its way out of its current mess. Timi Dakolo’s Great Nation is a perfect reminder of the task ahead of us and also that we are indeed all we have to defend this land if the dream is to see the country remain as one come 2016. Get into the Nigerian spirit and add this to your playlist tomorrow.
