The 15 Worst Lyrics Of All Time By Nigerian Artists



15 worst lyrics by Nigerian artists

Once in a while, some lyrics from your favorite Nigerian artists’ songs will have you giggling like little kids. You will shake your head in laughter and wonder if it was really your favorite artist that wrote those sleazy lyrics.

Well, artists are also imperfect humans like us. They are allowed to fumble once in a while. Remember this Black Sherif’s line, ‘Who never fuck up hands in the air’? Of course, no hands in the air!

In this article, therefore, I highlight the 15 worst lyrics of all time by Nigerian artists.

Note: the number is in no particular order!

15. Naira Marley: ‘Soapy’

Naira Marley Wuge dance

“Inside life, L’oó ti rí Five Alive (L’oó ti rí Five Alive)”

Those lines are from Naira Marley’s song Soapy. The translation in English is, ‘Inside life, you will see Five Alive’. In Nigeria, Five Alive is fruit juice. Naira Marley needs some explaining to do!

14. Davido: ‘D&G’

15 worst lyrics by Nigerian artists

“When I look into your eyes, All I see is your waist”

Lyrics from D&G by Davido. It must be Davido’s funniest lyrics of all time! Like, how do you look into a girl’s eyes and all you can see is her waist? Davido, you must have supernatural eyes!

13. Wizkid: ‘Joro’

15 worst lyrics by Nigerian artists

“This kind love, e dey do my body ta-nana, E dey make me wan dey your life for wa-nana

From Joro by Wizkid. ‘Ta-nana’ and ‘wa-nana’ must be some words in an alien language. Because only Wizkid understands what exactly he is singing here.

12. Tekno: ‘Wash’

15 worst lyrics by Nigerian artists

“If you like Karate, I’ll teach you mathematics”

Lyrics from the song Wash by Tekno. Please, guys, forgive Tekno this one time. He won’t repeat it again!

11. Tiwa Savage ft. Duncan Mighty: ‘Lova Lova’

15 worst lyrics by Nigerian artists

“After I whine am well, Make you no go leave your girl for inside well oh”

From Lova Lova by Tiwa Savage. Tiwa Savage nearly spoils a good song.

10. Rema: ‘Dumebi’

“Omalicha kan ye wu ewo, I go manya you”

From Dumebi by Rema. We really should let Rema off the hook this time. He already says he himself doesn’t know the meaning of those lyrics, that it’s just vibes.

9. Phyno ft. Olamide: ‘Ghost Mode’

15 worst lyrics by Nigerian artists

“I’m just like a calendar, See I’ve got all your dates”

Phyno’s lines from Ghost Mode featuring Olamide. It’s not easy to be a rapper. But it must be even harder to be like a calendar, Phyno. Lol!

8. Iyanya ft. Don Jazzy: ‘Gift’

“Baby let’s get naughty, maybe solve mathematics, I know you like logistics, we go do some chemistry today”

Lyrics from Gift by Iyanya. Iyanya must be a whizkid in science subjects. Well done, Professor Iyanya!

7. Wizkid: ‘In My Bed’

15 worst lyrics by Nigerian artists

“I want your body sleeping in my bed… Tinubu eleniyan”

Lyrics from Wizkid’s In My Bed. One moment Wizkid wants a girl in his bed, the next moment he wants ‘Tinubu eleniyan’. This can’t be funnier. Ha ha ha!

6. Burna Boy ft. Victony: ‘Different Size’

15 worst lyrics by Nigerian artists

“Monica, Mona Lisa, oh-oh (Monica, oh-oh) My baby, your body, e be like knicker o”

Burna Boy is often regarded as Nigeria’s modern-day greatest lyricist. However, once in a while (just once in a while), even the greatest lyricist shows flaws. ‘Your body, e be like knicker o’ is just not the best Burna Boy can do!

5. Mayorkun: ‘Che Che’

15 worst lyrics by Nigerian artists

“Girl I wan poke you like pokemon, I wanna pack you like pacman”

Lyrics from Che Che by Mayorkun. Mayorkun needs to explain these lines!

4. Omah Lay: ‘Soso’

15 worst lyrics by Nigerian artists

“Give me vitamins wey go take these pains away”

Lyrics from Soso by Omah Lay. Here, Omah Lay is asking for vitamins to take his pains away when he should be asking for painkillers instead.

3. Yemi Alade ft. Flavour: ‘Crazy Love’

15 worst lyrics by Nigerian artists

“Boy you be di hook, Na me be di fish o”

Lyrics from Crazy Love by Yemi Alade. When did Yemi turn a fish? This slaps hard tho. Bars!

2. Phyno ft. Olamide: Onyeoma

15 worst lyrics by Nigerian artists

“Chicken no dey fly for night, Bar beach water no dey dry”

Lyrics from Onyeoma featuring Olamide. This part of Olamide verse in Onyeoma is the weakest bar he has ever dropped, right?

1. Davido: ‘Like Dat’

15 worst lyrics by Nigerian artists

“Hossana sussana sutana, Sister life is deeper, Deeper life is sister, No Skuki, no brooklyn”

Lyrics from Davido’s Like Dat. I will leave you to guess the meaning of those lines. I give up! Lol!

Do you think some lyrics should have made the list?
