PublishedBy: in FeaturedDecember 30, 2020 -


The music industry like every other top sector was no doubt badly hit in the year 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic and other issues that troubled the country.

However, it also seemed to be a year of great discovery in the music industry owing to the number of break out stars that fans were blessed with as well as beautiful music from other top artistes.

The list below is not in any particular order and we were very careful in picking out our Top 20 from top music charts and feedback from listeners on Soloplay.

See some of the artistes mentioned and their songs below:


Table of Contents

Godly by Omah Lay:

Omah Lay is a sensational artiste and one of the few break out star in year 2020 that took everybody by storm.

His growth seemed organic as people identified with him strictly based in the quality of his music.

Godly was released late in November and in no time, the track became an anthem and it was one of the many songs from his body of work to blow people’s minds away.

The song was taken off his second extended playlist titled What Have We Done and it consists of 5 solid tracks.



Smile by Wizkid

Wizkid is no doubt one artiste that is greatly loved by his fans. Even though his newly released Made In Lagos Album was trailed by mixed reactions, a number of people have agreed that his Smile track was a good one.

The vibe of this particular song is top notch because everyone can relate to the concept of the song.

Sensational artiste, H.E.R also delivered a very cool verse and kudos to the writers of this song, Eight9FLY, H.E.R. and Wizkid.



Fem by Davido:

DMW boss, Davido’s Fem, is one song that has become a household song for many Nigerians and it appears it would remain that way for a long time.

Even though some fans held the opinion that it was a diss track aimed at Burna Boy, it still hasn’t diminished their love for it.

The song was greatly accepted and was even used to make political statements at protests.

The song was the first track on his A Better Time Album and no doubt, one of the banging songs on the street this year.



Nobody by DJ Neptune featuring and Mr Eazi:

Multi talented artiste, DJ Neptune released this track early 2020 and till tomorrow, this is a song everybody still vibe to.

The song did not only got beyond a danceable street song, it fits into all comical skits and it’s well relatable.

There is no doubt, Patoranking is a General when it comes to dropping Lamba for the streets.
