Best Naija Christmas Songs to Play this Season

‘Tis the season for joy, celebration, and the harmonious melodies that define the festive spirit.

However, when we think of Christmas songs, Nigerian artists are far from our minds.

Songs with ‘Snow’, ‘Mistletoe’, ‘Reindeer’, things that do not resonate with living in Naija.
