It’s less than 24 hours to the close of 2019 and we present to you the list of top ten songs, that enjoyed a massive play at weddings during the year.
As an events freak doubling as a blogger, I have certainly been to many events this year, weddings inclusive. Considering this, I am in a better position to have a fair idea of the kinds of songs played at these events. But with respect to this article, let us zero it down to only weddings.
Sarkodie is the only artist to really reach the top, globally – Akon
However, in a bid to present an unbiased and credible list of songs, I consulted the wedding Masters. I call them the wedding masters because, they are the brains behind most of the most eye-popping wedding set arrangements you see at weddings. They include the decors, the emcees, the DJs themselves, just to mention a few. Their opinions amongst other inquiries brought forth these top ten songs.

Meanwhile, I would be giving brevity of thoughts on only the top five songs on the list. It would also be fair to note that, these thoughts are not solely mine but on the collective opinion of many.

The BET award-winning rapper upon releasing this tune for his wedding back in 2018, it caught fire from the get-go through to this year too. Indisputably, it emerged atop of the list of top ten wedding songs owing to the fact that it was played and was often on rewind at most weddings within the year under review. Many others including myself could attest to it that, it was usually the couples’ entrance tune at countless wedding receptions. It was again noted as one of the most requested songs by the couple during these weddings.
