To some single people in Nigeria, Valentine’s day is just another dreaded holiday. The public displays of emotions, affection, gifts, etc can be borderline excessive and annoying. No one is willing to cut single people some slack. Everywhere singles turn, couples are celebrating love; organizing picnics, at the movies, and malls, and even your next-door neighbors are trying to pepper you.
Social media algorithms are even hellbent on shoving these loved-up couples in single people’s faces. Hence, the only thing for singles to do this Valentine’s day is to bury themselves in their favorite activities, like music.
What kind of music should you listen to alone on Valentine’s day? They’ll tell you soulful music, but don’t limit your music taste. Be versatile in your selection. Go all out for what makes your soul and body come alive. If it means gyrating your body—clumsy leg works, uncoordinated hip movements, tango with a random stranger in a restaurant, singing over the top of your voice on the sidewalks, etc. Just do it.
Since you don’t have anyone special to celebrate love with, settle in with a nice playlist of new and all-time best Nigerian love songs. For those who do not entirely detest sentiments, you can attend karaoke night shows, bond with friends over good food and music, etc. We’ve created a list of 10 songs that will appeal to single people this Valentine’s day.
