It has always been a norms of converting Nigerian music lyrics to slang on the street in the recent time.
We enjoyed quite a number of good song last year (2018) with a well notable and essential lyrics, even though we still have a colossal number of artistes with below par songs and dry Lyrics.
So I shortlisted the Top 10 most notable Lyrics we copped out of a song and use as a slang in our daily affair.
Below are the 10 Lyrically coined Slangs;
Even after the dimmed light of the jam by Naira Marleydubbed “Issa Goal”, the slang it gave birth to still bask in the euphoric mind of many Nigerians.
The slang is mostly used to affirm something we really want to achieve. For example, during the World Cup, we are all like ” Super Eagle Issa Goal!“.
I believe we all sometimes claimed something Issa Goal!
This is unarguably the most used lyrics as slang on the street of Nigeria and disapora.
The Chinko Ekun created slang became an Anthem to most aspiring Yahoo Boys and probably all money seeking hustlers on the street.
It’s more unless like a prayer point to every I never chop Nigga, and that’s the breaking point of this Lyrics.
Biggest lyrics of 2018 I must confess.
In English it means ” All My Friends are all Internet Fraudster“. How on earth will a lyrics like this be chanted by almost all and sundry.
Guess, nobody cares about your meaning most times. Yahoo Lawon Oremi, Oloso Lawon Oremi…
The virality of this lyrics gave Eleniyan much more deserving accolades through 2018.
“Bad Energy, Stay Far Away” – Wizkid, Energy

We all want to send an encrypted message to the toxic people in our life. Even Oxford dictionary name the word “Toxic” as the most used word of 2018.
Guess we having more toxic people around than normal, and that led to virality oif this Lyrics by Wizkid alongside Skepta.
To be truthful to ourself, we’ve heard different versions of this fact that “ You’re only ugly when broke“.
But the way the DMW act, Mayorkun refined it and make it an addictive song is something to talk on.
Na Money Be Fine Bobo became an hope lifting anthem to we the ugly boys that have small change.
It gave use the feels of confronting any Slay Mama as long as their is token in our account.
The Chaos causing lyrics by Davido, see an end to a whole lot of relationships and in the same vein enable the up sprout of some by various forms of Assurance men are giving to their respective Women.

Everybody started yearning for Assurance from their partner and it doesn’t even stop to commoners like us, even celebrities asked for it.
Almost every disappointing woman in my life copped a new name as at Last year and the name is “Amaka“.
