Hit Songs from other Countries


This is not a list of all the songs by other Africans that have been hits in Nigeria. It's just a list of 50 songs. 

Eddy Grant is in the honourable mentions section because, although he sang about Africa and arpatheid and he often visited Nigeria, he is actually from Guyana in the Caribbeans/South America (some people think that he is Nigerian). 

Oliver Mutukudzi's song is also in that section because it wasn't a major hit, despite the fact that it was played a lot on the radio.
