The trees are out, everywhere looking lit. Santa has started knocking at doors and the festivities have begun in full swing.
This is a period that usually sees new music as artistes try to make a hit out of the season.
Here are five recently songs guaranteed to put you in the festive mood.
- Another Xmas [Halleluyah] – Jaywon – Oluwajuwonlo Jaywon who already has one of the biggest year opening songs in ‘This Year’ is also trying to own the Christmas period with his recently released song, Another Xmas, this has a feel of This Year to it and is quite enjoyable.
- This Christmas – Dil ft Yemi Alade – Dil and Yemi Alade goes in search of someone special with this brilliantly delivered tune that has an infusion of the popular ‘Last Christmas’ song. It is smooth and it is a mix of love and happiness. One I really like.
- Silent Night – Waje – Silent Night is a traditional Christmas Carol that has been remade and redone over a thousand times, on this, Nigeria’s power house vocalist Waje goes all traditional in her rendition, she brings a different feel to this and makes the sound one that is really closer to home. Waje seemingly can do no wrong.
- Jingle Bell Remix – Tunde Ednut ft M.I, Falz and Orezi– If you enjoyed the original released some years back, this is even better as Tunde Ednut gets the services of some top emcees in this second series to deliver this fun Christmas tune. It is a blend of Hip-hop and Fuji and will surely get you dancing, the video to this is also quite hilarious.
5.Agogo- Mo Cheddah – This is the season of love, so much to share are the words of this charming singer Mo Cheddah as she makes a call for the bells to be rang as the season to be thankful returns. It is a warming song and sets the perfect mood for the fun to begin.
Compliments of the Season!
