As yet another year drew to a close yesterday, The Info Nerds Editorial deemed it fit to review some of the major happenings and contents in the Nigeria entertainment industry. 2015 was a very successful year in the entertainment industry (at least when compared with previous years). Here is my review of the top 5 Nigeria music video for the year 2015:
Note: I compiled this list using the Number of views, Concept, and Appeal.
On life singer- Flavour featuring Chidinma on the song “Ololufe”. The Godfather directed video which was released in February has accumulated 7.5 million views (to make an average 672,000 views per month).The “all-white concept” depicts the love-life of a couple.
Sitting on the fourth spot is YBNL boss himself, Olamide with the video of his hit single “Shakiti Bobo”. The Moe Musa shot video was shot in Lagos and was released in May with accumulated views of 5.6 million. The video spells out a new dance style to shoot it up to become the fourth most viewed video of 2015.

The video which received special appearances from Mavin boss, Don Jazzy, OAP Yaw, AY and a host of other celebrities is from the stables of Adasa Cookey for Squareball production.
P-Square holds down the number 2 spot with their smashing hit song, Collabo featuring Mavin boss, Don Jazzy. The comical video which was shot in South Africa was directed by Clarence A. Peters and Jude “Engees” Okoye. The video has gathered an impressive total of 18 million views since it was released in February with an average of 1.6 million views monthly.
