    They made a wonderful selection because the whole songs listed here are all good but left for me to choose i would have gone for ”Aye” before ”Dorobucci” . I love that song soooooooo much but all the same they tried.

    Good songs no doubt. They were all hit jams in 2014, but in terms of the actual content lyrically speaking, I don’t think I would go for more than two of the songs listed on here and they’re Yemi Alade’s Johnny and SID’s Surulere. Other than these two, the others are just good for dance activities and pastimes.
