Nigerian music reigns in South Africa

Nigerian music reigns in South Africa

From the plumber to the top executive, from the student to the professor, Nigerian music has become the ‘real deal’ in South Africa.

One day, I was at the Checkers shop at Northgate, Johannesburg and my attendant was distracted as he plugged earphone to his ears, I rebuked him and he jokingly said: “It’s your country music I’m listening to”. I was ‘disarmed’.

Another day, Emmanuel a plumber from Limpopo asked me if I’ve got some 2Face or PSquare songs, I was shocked he listens to these songs.

He pulled off his earphones and plugged them into my ears and of one 2Face’s songs was his inspiration as he was doing his plumbing work.

It is no longer news that Nigerian songs enjoy maximum airplay on South African radio stations.

The shocking part is how Naija music reigns in many South African clubs.

In South Africa today, if you dont know the latest Naija song, you are not in the ‘KNOW’ musically.

Also, Nigerian songsters ‘DBanj, Davido, Reminisce, Wizkid and others have found South Africa as their second home because their songs are appreciated in Mzanzi.
