“Aye” which is a groovy love song released in the month of love immediately became an anthem for guys although some girls might not have liked it because the song discouraged materialism in a relationship. Indirectly a bad market for them especially during the Valentine season it was released. Guys took it upon themselves to use the song to tell girls to stop being materialistic. Like in the song “She no want ferrari, She no want designer“, She say na my love oo“. The video also portrayed Davido as a farmer who was loved by a Princess, regardless.

“Aye” was a huge success and it gained the singer positive reviews and multiple awards like the Hottest single of the year at the Nigerian Entertainment Awards in 2014, and the video of the song was YouTube most watched video in Nigeria in 2014. This is a song you should consider having on your throwback playlist.
