2021 was musically impressive for Nigerian music with some of the game’s heavy-hitters dropping new amapiano tracks. The year felt like a changing of the guard from afrobeats to amapiano. The buzzing amapiano subgenre of South African house music became a household sound in Nigeria. A new creative element that will surely push the afrobeats’ ever-evolving sound even further.
Afrobeats Card puts a spotlight on the amapiano tracks that stand out from the pool of exciting releases throughout the year, highlighting everything from Top 100: Nigeria – Apple Music chart-friendly singles to deep cuts, and the hottest songs.
Our picks for the best Nigerian amapiano songs of the year are listed in no particular order and include several tracks that also appear in our Best Afrobeats Songs playlist. There’s no telling where this fun jazzy dance music will go next, but the songs below might offer some clues.
