Number 7: Lova Lova ft Duncan Mighty
Lova Lova was a banger and perhaps too underrated. One could argue that this is one of the best collaboration Duncan Mighty has done so far.
Number 6: All Over
A colourful video perfect for the hot summer weather. The music video for “All Over” was shot in Miami, Florida and shows Tiwa Savage having fun with a group of friends as they party on the beach front, it was directed by Patrick Elis. Patrick uses the appropriate colours to bring the song to life.
Number 5: Ma Lo Ft Wizkid

Number 4: 49 - 99
Released August 30, 2019 . “The song encourages the young to put down the sense of inheritance and work for what they desire in life, for a better tomorrow. “49-99” makes a powerful statement about poverty. Tiwa Savage explains, “‘49-99’ is a term coined from the hard life many Nigerians go through.
Number 3: Bad
The music video for the Wizkid-assisted track "Bad" was released in July 2016, a day after the confirmation of Tiwa Roc Nation deal. The two superstars can be seen tagging graffiti on a wall and stunting on a motorcycle as they drop their verses over the P2J- produced beat.
Number 2: Dangerous Love
The song plays around the subject of being in love with someone who is undeserving of the time and attention. The girl in question is well aware that her love interest is no good for her yet she gambles with her heart. With this song your head and ears is moving.
Number 1: Koroba
Tiwa Savage always delivers her best in her music, her vocal artistry and lines are always clear and unique. She did not come to this life to suffer.
