Davido's 'Assurance' Was 2018’s Number One Trending Nigerian Music Video On YouTube

Last year, Davido's career saw a massive resurgence, following the release of the game-changing, Tekno-produced banger, "If". Shortly after, he released "Fall", followed by "Fia" and "Like Dat", cementing 2017 as the year of Davido. 

He then started off 2018 with the middling "Flora My Flawa", before regaining his footing with the monster hit, "Assurance", which has now been named the top trending Nigerian music video of 2018, according to YouTube

Directed by Meji Alabi, the video followed Davido on a holiday with his girlfriend and muse for the song, Chioma. That, paired with the fact that the afropop star surprised her with a Porshe Cayenne, understandably made "Assurance" one of the most talked-about songs of the year.

Other videos that made the list include Olamide's "Science Student", which came following the song's ban; Falz's "This Is Nigeria", which highlighted the country's dire state; and Starboy's "Soco", which is actually the most viewed Nigerian music video of 2018.
