In this article, we’ll try to look at all of Davido’s finest songs and pick the only best sounds in the mix. There are a lot of songs written and composed by this spectacular Nigerian-American songwriter but we’ve been able to identify which ones stood far above the others.

Ranking of the best of Davido songs from 2011 to date is going to be a tough nut to crack and will generate a lot of controversies. Anyway, we managed to figure out the best Davido songs using analytics collected from Youtube and other music platforms to generate the most popular and trending songs written by Davido.

Before we take a good look at some of the finest songs written by David Adeleke, let’s talk a bit more about Davido.

Who Is Davido?

Top 20 Richest Musicians in Nigeria
Davido Networth Forbes – $32 Million

Even as amazing as Davido is, millions of people still fail to recognize his talent. Last week, I got into a heated argument with some of my friends because I said “No Nigerian Musician be like Davido”.

They didn’t like that statement and was calling names like Naira Marley, Burna Boy, Zlatan, Wizkid, Tiwa Savage. I still support my statement, there’s no Nigerian musician like Davido.

Born on the 21st of November 1992, David Adedeji Adeleke is an American-born Nigerian songwriter, musician, and record producer. He was rounding up his tertiary education in Business Administration at Oakwood University before he dropped out to pursue a career in music.

His resilience paid off after his debut song “Dami Duro” made headlines in 2011.  Since 2011 till date, Davido has been releasing back to back to back hit that has been on the top of billboards for weeks.

Just in case you didn’t know, Davido is one of the children of Deji Adeleke. His father, Deji Adeleke is one of the richest men in Nigeria but notwithstanding, David Adeleke managed to build a music empire and did not rely on his father’s wealth for sustenance or livelihood.

Even the Adeleke family stands as one of the most powerful families in Nigeria. Almost every member of this family is established in both business and politics. Davido, B-Red, and Shina Rambo stood out and created a unique brand in music and entertainment.

These facts make Davido not just one of the richest musicians in Nigeria but also one of the most hard-working Nigerian American songwriters on Earth. How cool is that?

Top 10 Best Davido Songs Compared

Davido has partnered with some of the baddest producers in Nigeria including Shizzi, Don Jazzy, Maleek Berry, GospelOnDeBeatz, Spellz, Uhuru, Tekno, and SARS to make some of the finest songs that any Nigerian have ever heard.

If you are looking for the best Davido songs, look no further because these are the best Davido songs of all time.

1. Fall

The name of the best song written by Davido at the moment is his hit track “Fall”. Davido’s “Fall” is an international record-breaking track, this particular song has given him more recognition than all his songs combined.

The official video for this mad jam was the first Nigerian music video to mark 100,000,000 views on Youtube. This allowed the song to be recognized as the most-watched Nigerian music video on YouTube. How crazy is that?

Fall is also the longest Nigerian song in Billboard Chart history, it was played consecutively from the day of its release till early January 2019. This means that it stayed on the Billboard charts for more than a year as number 29 on their countdown.

If you ask me, I know that there are a lot of Davido songs that sound better than his hit track “Fall” but no one performed as excellent as this mad jam did. At the moment, “Fall” is the best song written by Davido.

If you still haven’t listened to Fall by Davido, You should use this link to Download Davido Fall Mp3 Song Right now.

2. IF

“IF” is a Nigerian Afro-Beat Masterpiece and stands as one of the best Davido songs of all time because there’s nothing better than strong love and 30 Billion for the account.

This masterpiece quickly became one of the most popular songs in Nigeria after it was released on Valentine’s Day of 2017.

One of the factors that made this song an overwhelming success was the role of Tekno. Tekno produced the song and also helped mix and mastered this exciting song.

OBO went out of his way to create the perfect Nigerian anthem. The original version of this track gathered close to 100 million views on YouTube. The song was so good that Omarion did a dance video on it, R Kelly appeared on the remix, and a lot of Nigerian musicians did a cover on the song.

3. FIA

Another Davido song that sounded too good to be true and begin with an F is the song “FIA”. Fia pronounced as Fire was another song written and composed by David Adeleke in the year 2017.

This song was released in late 2017 by David Adeleke and was playing on every club and event center in the country. This song was so good that it hit more than 5 million views on YouTube three months after it was released.

Even immediately after FIA was released, it was featured on the Nigerian Billboard and MTV Base Official Naija Top 10 for more than 5 months in a row. After the success of the song, Davido hooked up with UK songwriter, Stefflon Don for the remix.

4. Aye

Aye is one of the best Davido songs of all time. This captivating love song was produced by T-Spice and Runtown. The music video of this spectacular song was directed by Clarence Peters. Aye is the perfect mix of heavy beat and light guitars.

The level of artistry on this song was top-notch. In the music video, Davido portrays a poor farmer who falls in love with a beautiful girl from a wealthy family. Even if the song was released in 2014, I believe that it is by far one of the most influential Nigerian love songs.

Just in case you don’t believe me, you should know that this song won the 2014 Nigeria Entertainment Awards for the Hottest Single of the Year, 2014 City People Entertainment Awards Most Popular song, and The Headies 2014 Song of the Year.

5. Blow My Mind Ft Chris Brown

Blow My Mind is a major success and one of the finest international collaborations orchestrated by Davido. The official music video gathered more than three million views within the first 24 hours after its release.

Davido has even said that this hit song has gone 2X Platinum. According to RISA (the Recording Industry of South Africa), for a track to be recorded as a certified Platinum, it must have sold more than 20,000 copies. This simply means that Davido has sold more than two million copies of his hit track “Blow My Mind”.

Quite frankly, I think featuring Chris Brown on music to throw Beyonce’s “Brown Skin Girl” off the Official Naija Top 10 was a fantastic idea. Any place, any time, I’ll always choose Blow My Mind over Brown Skin Girl. What about you?

6. Assurance

Assurance is another spectacular romantic song written and composed by David Adeleke. Davido took the idea of true love to the next level by writing a love song for his lover and the mother of his child, Chioma Roland. He even expressed his love for her in the official music video of this mad jam.

Assurance is definitely one of the hottest Davido songs in 2018, it took Nigerians by storm. Who would have believed that the son of a billionaire would date a Nigerian girl, I always believed that he would fall for an Italian supermodel or an American actress.

Well, we see what makes Davido even more special. The official video for this love song was shot and directed by Meji Alabi and has acquired close to 70 million views on Youtube.

Even one loved this song both Papa, Mama, and Pikin because the song was too good and they never saw it coming.  Believe it or not, the chemistry and energy between Davido and Chioma is real and lit.

8. The Sound featuring Uhuru & DJ Buckz

Africa gets down and clear road for one of the finest Davido songs of 2015. I think I was 16 when this song was released and it was my ringing tone for more than six months.

Davido linked up with South African superstars Uhuru and DJ Buckz for one of the best Nigerian and South African songs of all time. The Sound was released in January 2015 just after the New Year and the official video was shot in Dubai and directed by Sesan.

The official video of the song started with Davido and DJ Buckz walking in the desert and playing rock, paper, scissors. It eventually got to a scene where Davido jumped off a plane, landed like Batman, and drove a Lamborghini.

My love for this song is too strong.

Today, The Sound has been watched more than 15 million times on Youtube and stands as one of the most interested Davido songs on Youtube.

9. Dami Duro

Since Dami Duro was the song that brought Davido to the limelight, it makes sense to add it to the top 10 best Davido songs of all time. This was the song that gave birth to OBO.

A lot of people have attacked Davido for buying music but you should know that he wrote this one by himself. Besides, I don’t buy that crap, Davido is a talented songwriter and even if he buys a song, he would still add the Davido ginger that would make the song go viral.

I don’t think there’s any song on this list that performed as amazingly as this one. Back then the Nigerian music industry wasn’t even as established as it is today and you’d have to spend close to a million Naira to shoot a poorly edited video. But all these didn’t stop Davido.

For a song that had nothing to do with love or women just a small boy bragging about his wealth, I’d say this song was top-notch. Compared to other songs released in 2011, I don’t think Dami Duro was a terrible song.

We had to choose between Dami Duro and Gobe, I liked Gobe more than Dami Duro but we ended up going for Dami Duro. Dami Duro was no doubt amazing and deserves a place among the top 10 best Davido songs.

10. Fans MI Featuring Meek Mill

Last on own list is one of Davido’s finest songs tagged “Fans MI” Featuring Meek Mill. This song was released after Drake and Wizkid made a song together and like all of Davido’s collaboration, it was outstanding.

The second verse where Meek Mill dropped a couple of bars was also top-notch. The video of this hit track was uploaded to Youtube five years ago. Today, it has generated about 11,871,370 views.

Believe it or not, I think Fan Mi is among the top 20 best Davido songs that we know of. There are so many other songs that we could have included in our list of the 10 best songs composed by David Adeleke

Other songs that were written and composed by David Adeleke that we listed in our top 20 best Davido songs of 2021 included:

  • Pere featuring Rae Sremmurd and Young Thug
  • Coolest Kid in Africa Featuring Nasty C
  • Skelewu
  • One Ticket Featuring Kizz Daniel
  • Tchelete (Goodlife) Featuring Mafikizolo
  • Gobe
  • The Money Featuring Olamide
  • Dodo
  • Risky featuring Popcaan
  • Flora my Flawa

We’ll have to stop there. We sincerely apologize if you wanted to see more amazing songs written by Davido but they were too many to add them all. But we listed them out just for you, maybe we’ll talk more about them next time.

What Makes Davido So Special?

Theirs is nothing special about Davido. He is a normal human being like me and you but has been able to rise above challenges and any speedbump that tries to stop him.

David Adeleke is one of the few Nigerian musicians that can boast of shutting down the O2Arena in London.

You don’t know what that means? It means that Davido held a concert in this London Stadium on Sunday the 27th of January 2019 and the concert was sold out.

He sold more than 20,000 and filled the stadium to its brim and everyone that attended the concert both physically and online admitted that they had a good time.

Selling out tickets in this stadium is no small thing, the O2Arena, London is the most popular music and entertainment venue on Earth. Some celebrated Nigerian musicians can’t even sell out Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere ask Olamide in his Lagos Na Wa Album Launch.

Even His smashing hit 2017 song “Fall” broke the record as the longest-charting Nigerian pop song in Billboard history. This same song also became certified gold in the USA and Canada.

Yes, it’s hard to believe but it’s true. On the 27th of May 2020, Davido hit song ‘Fall’ sold more than 40,000 and 800,000 copies in Canada and the United States respectively.

Let me repeat it, there’s no Nigerian musician like Davido.
