3. Tiwa Savage feat Leo Wonder - 'Ife Wa Gbona'
''I must be, the luckiest girl in the world, cos you chose me to share this love in your heart'', Tiwa Savage packs intimacy, sensitivity and relatability in this Afrocentric duet with Leo Wonder that promises love not just for now, but that which will last eternal.
4. Lagbaja feat Ego - 'Never Far Away'
Sometimes love gets to that point where strains appear and things begin to fall apart, but the Valentine season offers a period where the bond can again be strengthened and Lagbaja and Ego's 'Never Far Away' reflects on the good times as two lovers find their way back to where it all started.
5. 2face Idibia feat Bridget Kelly - 'Let Somebody Love You'

6. Stan Iyke feat. Tiwa Savage - 'Darlin'
A balladic rendition that provides the perfect tune for that romantic mood presented by Stan Iyke alongside Tiwa Savage and produced by Cobhams Asuquo. This is a song that reeks of 'love' from the production to the vocals. Just go ahead and press play.
7. Becca and MI - 'No Away'
