There's nothing like hearing a South African jam infused with the sounds of Nigeria's very own talented artists.

When the continents best talent comes together to create blissful music for the masses, you know it's about to be a serious turn-up.

Throughout the years we've seen many South African artists reach out to our Naija brothers and sisters in the efforts of joining Africa the best way they know how to, through music and dance. And we must say, the musical collaborations have been nothing short of top-charting songs that will be played for years to come.

From Joburg to Lagos and in no particular order we've listed the best not forgetting top-charting songs of the past years that has seen South African and Nigerian artists collaborate together all for the love of music.

Here is a list of our favourite Naija/Mzansi hits.

Rands & Nairas by Emmy Gee featuring AB Crazy & DJ Dimplez 


You know a song is about to be a hit when you're bopping your head within the first 2 seconds of the song. 
That's how we feel every time we hear Emmy Gee's Rands & Naira's, in fact, it makes us want to book a first class ticket Lagos, Nigeria and party up a storm.

"Coolest Kid in Africa" Davido featuring Nasty

It's probably the freshest Davido single out right now, the Nigerian artist brought out South Africa's finestNasty Con this one and it sure is a banger, the two even performed it on Big Brother Nigeria.
