Tiwa 1

The Nigerian National Anthem, though simple and straight forward remains an honorable classic!


Individual music acts though have found it a really interesting number and have over the years rendered their own unique versions to it.


From MAVIN Records first lady and superstar Ife Wa Gbona crooner, Tiwa Savage to emerging singer and the beautiful voice behind the Only You title, Nikki Laoye, to international acts: Beyonce and Michelle Williams (both of the girl group, destiny’s child), the national anthem resounds in such soothing rhythm from these four individual acts but let’s see if you can pick your best rendition. Tough decision, yes, I know. Try though!


While we love and appreciate the effort put in reproducing this tune, at the same time cherishing the purpose for it, we’d still love for you to listen to the four versions below one after the other and tell which you love best.

Tiwa Savage‘s in October 2012


Nikki Laoye‘s in June 2013


Beyonce‘s in February 2009


Michelle William‘s in December 2012


So which is your best? Whose version got to you the most? Do let us know

    Nikki and Tiwa did it for me! Beyonce just surprised us that she knew the song and Michelle struggled
