Top 25 Gospel Songs Lyrics in Nigerian Indigenous Languages

We’ve shared popular gospel lyrics in Igbo language and gospel lyrics in Yoruba language. Today, we’re going to dig down to other major languages in Nigeria including that of Efik and pidgin English.

Since most of these gospel songs are old, I might not be able to provide author names or accurate lyrics. So feel free to correct me wherever there’s an error!

    I REALLY LUV THIS PAGE

  2. Anisylva says:

    pls Admin… when u want to post a song in a local dialect, pls get a native of that area to go through d lyrics and make corrections because those efik songs are not correct at all… some words there virtually do not have any meaning in Ibibio language or efik language, they dont have any meaning in any of the languages in Akwa-Cross…. thanks

    • NgLyrics Editor says:

      Thanks for your lovely advice Sylva,

      Most of the times, we listen to these songs and write down the lyrics while listening to them, so errors like that are inevitable hence the comment section that let’s any one update everyone else with the correct lyrics, suggestion and opinions.
