10 Biggest Heart-Break Songs In The History Of Nigerian Music



Love is indeed and in truth a beautiful thing like it is always generally said. It is something that when humans find, it makes glorious their lives and puts smiles on their faces.

However, when one encounters the negative side of love, the effect could be devastating. It could shatter one’s life and destroy for a long time hope for optimism & enthusiasm.

And this is exactly why musicians have put it upon themselves to help one get past those terrible periods as they tell a story of their experiences of heartbreaks, making you understand that you are not alone in such situations and that they are everyday norms that occur to humans.

A lot of Nigerian artistes in the past and present generations have helped to compose and release songs that could easily help people through these moments, to help them heal by making a generalization of the their own (listeners’) experiences and preach in a manner that would give hope to them and make them understand that it’s just a phase that would always once in a while, come and go.

There are some Nigerian songs that fit into this picture. They are the biggest heartbreak songs ever released in the Nigerian music industry and we have helped to highlight them below for your reminiscence. This songs have been selected to be on the list as a result of their lyrics, popularity, melodies and other factors.

“Not The Girl” – Darey Art Alade

This song was released in 2009 and it is a song that talks about a sudden change in attitude of Darey’s partner. The lyrics is centred around betrayal and infidelity. And also how one should quickly move on from a partner who acts a traitor, who is not respectable and above all who is dis-honest.

“Koni Koni Love” – Klever Jay

What makes this song special is the fact that it’s a dance-hall kind of music. Everyone expects a heartbreak song to be slow or at least a mid-tempo song as it is one that is made to target the mind and soul of a victim of heartbreak. Nevertheless, It still didn’t deter listeners from getting the message in the song.

However, it gives a weird reaction as it is strange for one to have a reason to dance in the midst of emotional trauma. Great song all the same. It was released in 2008.

“O Why (Bolatito)” – Segun Agbede (Black Smith)

Possibly the most unpopular song on the list; “O Why” is a song that was very well thought out before its release in 2008. Arguably the song with the most relevant lyrics on this list, this song surely must have been birthed by a true life story. The reality it speaks is undeniable.

For anyone who has encountered a relationship heartbreak before, this song would speak to you as whatever could have caused you a heartbreak would most likely be related to the story in this song. It is a fantastic song, it’s just a shame we could not have more of this from the singer.

“Say Your Love” – P-square

One of P-square’s greatest songs, “Say Your Love” is a song that preaches so much about reality and the betrayal experienced in it. It talks about a romantic relationship that used to be full of glamour, fun turning sour as a result of treachery.

This song also would help to give life and hope to any one who is a victim of relationship heartbreak as it also talks about bravery and the gut to call it quit with a cheating partner. It was released in 2005 and went on to become a hit.

Image result for bibanke asa art work

“Bibanke” – Asa

When we talk of the most insightful music writers in the history of Nigerian music, Asa’s name definitely would pop -up as she’s shown her writing prowess countless times before in her music compositions.

She proves her musical artistry and phenomenal writing skills on “Bibanke,” a song that is highly emotional and composed towards the direction of the pain encountered from the crumbles of a relationship. Not so popular on the streets, but a big one amongst elites. It deserves a place on this list against all odds. It was released in 2007.

Image result for niyola toh bad art work

“Toh Bad” – Niyola

A truly majestic song, “Toh Bad” has got the slickest of lyrics, sweetest of melodies and grooviest of beat. A song that possibly would think of betrayal in the most hurtful fashion, it is a classic and one that would always appeal to the ears whenever it gets played.

Imaging someone promising you the “whole world” in the most assured fashion and on the long-run backs down on his promises in an unapologetic matter, that’s exactly what this song is about. It was released in 2013.

“Out of Love” – Chike

This is a song that is all shades of musical brilliance, highly delectable and full of extravagance. Though it’s a song that has to do with the sorrow experienced as a result of heartbreak, you just cannot help but to applaud the beauty of the song.

This song is a perfect example of what happens in relationships where love are lost. A situation where one would just suddenly get a call from a partner and hear the breaking news of the loss of interest in you. It deserves a spot here definitely.

Notable Mentions:

“Gone Too Soon” – Simi

“Iyawo Asiko” – Nomoreloss

How Sarz Became Africa’s Foremost Producer & Wizkid’s Right-Hand Man, See Several Awards Nominations & Victories




Sarz’s interest in music began during his childhood with the influence of legendary American producer Timbaland. He sold his first beat at just fifteen years old and was catapulted into the mainstream music scene after his production for Lord of Ajasa’s “See Drama”. Producing “Kako bi Chicken” for Reminisce saw a turning point in his career when the song became one of Africa’s biggest street songs in 2011. 

The following year, record label giants, EME, chose Beats By Sarz as the producer of their compilation album “Empire State Of Mind”, where he made these popular hits: “Get Down Tonight”, “Ko Mo Le”, “Dance For Me” and “My baby”. 

In 2010, Sarz produced the hit single “Jor Oh” along with its remix for artist, Jahbless, which featured Durella, RuggedMan, Reminisce, Ice Prince and eLDee. The song won “Best Street Hop” award and was nominated for “Best Collaboration” at The Headies. In 2011, he went on to produce Shank’s “Salute”, eLDee’s “Today” & “Wash Wash”, Skales “Mukulu”, Goldie Harvey’s “Don’t Touch My Body” and Reminisce’s “Kako Bi Chicken,” “Kako Bi Chicken” was nominated for “Best Street Hop” at The Headies, 2012. Later that year, he solely produced eLDee’s “Undeniable” album (except for the track “We Made It”).

Sarz was nominated for Nigeria Entertainment Awards 2012 “Producer Of The Year” award alongside Don Jazzy. Although Don Jazzy won the award, Don Jazzy declined the award and insisted it go to Sarz. Sarz would later win the “Best New Producer” award at the 2012 Dynamix Awards. He went on to release his first single “Beat of Life (Samba)” featuring Nigerian Artiste, Wizkid off his album.

In 2013, he produced 2 songs off Wizkid’s ‘Ayo’ Album, “Jaiye Jaiye” featuring Femi Kuti as well as the track, “Kilofe”.  He was mentioned as one of the five new music producers giving Don Jazzy a run for his money by the Premium Times Nigeria. Sarz was reported to have signed an endorsement deal with Nike later that Year. He became the executive producer for the official Hennessy Artistry 2014 theme song titled “Dance Dey Go (Eau De Vie)” which featured Wizkid and 2Face Idibia.

Sarz’s unique and innovative way of beat making has allowed him to work with some of the most accomplished musicians in the world including Drake, Banky W, Chris Brown, and Beenie Man. 

Declining to be boxed into genre-specific beats, his distinctive methodology of producing has allowed him to break new talent, notably, nineteen-year-old singer, Flash, with the contemporary dance infused Afropop song “Get Up”.


Osabuohien Osaretin was born in Benin City into a family of 3 children. He attended All Saints Primary School and had his high school education at Goodwill Secondary School. 

Sarz describes his entry into the music scene as a mistake; attributing his love for music and his ability to remember a beat in detail after hearing it piqued his interest in music production.

Dj Cuppy News

DJ Cuppy – An Epitome Of Talent & Hardwork, A Victim Of Undeserving Hatred, A ‘Headache’ Of Many Nigerians




DJ Cuppy’s resilience and hard-work are what have established the superstar DJ as one of the most famous music personalities within the Nigerian music industry and outside of it.

Referred to by some as the female version of Davido, Cuppy just like the music superstar is from a privileged background but has to live and thrive inside regular, hateful comments.

It has become a norm in this part of the world that people just naturally feel hatred for any privileged person who is thriving absolutely well amongst people from humble (poor) background. It is believed that once you are a rich kid and you are doing so well for yourself, your success must have been as a result of the fact that your family’s riches is what has made you breakthrough.

Your talent, skill, resourcefulness, diligence, innovation, creativity, time-dedication, bravery, confidence and risk-taking decisions would be less regarded or ultimately ganged-up-against, while your wealthy background would not be even used to celebrate your success but instead be used to spite you and what ever you have achieved.

The reason why that has come to be is really beyond what i can imagine and it constantly baffles me that some people find it as the easiest of things to do.

Not moving anywhere away from the topic, DJ Cuppy absolutely fits into the shoes of someone whose personal values are constantly not appreciated but rather gets the stick for being the daughter of a billionaire.

Truth be told, Cuppy isn’t the best of singers or the most talented of music artistes, but first, it has to be agreed that she isn’t a musician but a disc-jockey. I know questions like “when she knows she doesn’t know how to sing, why then does she sing?” would have filled your hearts, it is normal, but you have to understand that everyone always would feel the urge at some point in time to try something new.

She has felt the urge to delve into part-time singing which is a show of her bravery, and it has paid-off well for her. Let’s do a little bit of illustration, if a student gets correctly 4 out of 6 questions in an examination, what does it mean? it means the student has simply passed the test, right?

It even makes it a lot easier within the music industry. DJ Cuppy had 6 songs prior to the release of “Gelato” featuring Zlatan, out of those 6, you can lay claims to 4 that made and still make music fans feel good. “Green Light” ft Tekno was a hit, “Vybe” ft Sarkodie was big in Ghana, “Abena” ft Kwesi Arthur, Ceeza Milli & Shaydee is a hit, “Currency” ft L.A.X also bangs. All these songs are signs that Cuppy is not just only a big asset within the music industry but an inspiration to a lot of people, especially young females and therefore should be appreciated rather than despised. As a matter of cat, not even a lot of Nigerian male musicians can boast of having 4 hit songs out of 6.

Let’s even shift our gazes away from her involvement in making music and let’s focus briefly on her primary job which is disc-jockeying. As a DJ, Cuppy has been able to perform at places where even some of the male DJs can only dream of, which is a sign of how skilled she is when it comes to scratching her fingers off in order to become the life of a party. She’s performed at the One Music Africa Fest, recently concluded Afro-Nation Fest in Portugal, Davido’s 30 Billion Concert, Pepsi Rhythm Unplugged, MTV Africa Music Awards, Financial Times Luxury Summit in Mexico, Tatler & Christie’s Art Ball in London and many more.

Apart from the awesome places she’s performed at, i have witnessed her perform at events and it must be told that she truly is skilled.

Cuppy’s consistent hard-work has led her to drop another single, “Gelato” with rave of the moment, Zlatan. The song as expected is getting a lot of thumbs-down which i do not second. I feel it’s a great song and one that would penetrate the street and make legs to move with skill and at quick pace. In as much as the song was not done with the intention to spread motivational messages or inspire anyone that feels in disagreement with what he/she is getting from life but strictly for the dance-floor, then it’s a perfect jam. Cuppy should however be appreciated more for her smartness to convert a moment of fun with her dad in Italy to a song. Another sign of innovation and bravery.

Conclusively, Cuppy is a huge ambassador of not just Nigerian or African entertainment in general, but also an inspiration for every young woman out there who seeks motivation to achieving the impossible and therefore, she should be celebrated not bullied.


F.F.T: Nigerians should have a change of heart towards  people who are privileged, hate is one of the biggest pioneers of stagnation or backwardness. It does not allow you move forward, especially when the person you hate constantly and consistently achieves success, it holds you to ransom and may eventually make you delve into what would destroy you.

Spread love and be happy for someone who does better than you, so your free & happy heart would lead you to a land full of milk and honey.

It is however shocking that talented Nigerians have now made it easy for those who direly wants to get the chain to finally get a hold of a chain that is worth over 3 million naira at a ridiculously meagre fee of 4,000 naira only.

What would be Davido’s reaction when he finally gets to see this? It must really be hilarious
