  1. Timi , is a great artist. He sings from the heart . The song is really really wonderful , this is a song that will stay forever . Welldone ,TIMI

  2. Indeed,Great Nation by Timi Dakolo is evergreen, wonder piece. Will be a good idea if it should be adopted as our anthem

  3. THAT WAS GREAT BUT SORRY UNFORTUNATELY THE NATIONAL ANTHEM CANT BE CHANGED BECAUSE OF YOUR MUSIC MY DEAR SORRY THATS A COUNTRY AFFAIR TO HANDLE

  4. The song is so great and tocuhing, even thou it cant be make national anthem, at least they should recognise it well.

  5. He really tried so much in that song anyway but can the authorities accept it or adopt it as our National Anthem? They will bring sentiments to it, some others will kick at it.

  6. These people must be caught up in some sort of a euphoria, the song isn’t up to per in my opinion.

  7. Its actually a good song but we should know that our Nigerian government can’t accept it, the former still stands

  8. The song is good and one of my best but not for national anthem, a lot have to come in and mind you we are not just different in people culture as well.

  9. Wow such a great song to be used as national anthem but hey we can’t wake up and change a country’s national anthem because of a well organized constructed inspiring song like yours.. I wish its possible though but i think it’s too good for Nigerians let’s make our country better first before changing the national anthem..

  10. I don’t agree with that! though I like Timi, but our national anthem is significant and we must respect accident land marks. So just as I said I disagree with that suggestion.

  11. Truth be told, our leaders has failed us and we have followed in the failed steps of these leaders as we now disappoint ourselves daily with what we do.

    So has our National Anthem! It may have served its purpose in the past, but right not so. The peace aspect has eluded us for so long. The labours of our heroes past has since be washed away as no young child of at least 10 years can truly point to any one Nigerian hero he knows growing up.

    The Great Nation song might just be a good replacement, as it especially carried an aura that can steer up the right conscience within the Nigerian people u to greatness once again.

    …good people, rest nation!

  12. That is so good of Tim dakolo,he is a great artist with good inspirational songs,his great nation song is really nice

  13. Timi is a good artist but then the meaning of the national anthem cannot be quantified, we love Timi and we appreciate his lyrics great nation, but let our national anthem be

  14. Its indeed a wonderful and inspirational song from the great and talented artist timi dakolo I won’t mind if it was to be our new anthem cos it worth it

  15. Great voice. Great singer and a great talent too. He always delivers soul touching and spirit uplifting songs anytime and any day. Good one coming from him.

  16. Please don’t change our national anthem, quantify and qualified the words and meaning of the present anthem. He has done a great job

  17. His song should be used as national anthem in a country where there is peace there is no peace in Nigeria

  18. If It was to be changed…. Its should have been done long ago and not now…. Timi performance rock it well but not to be seen as an Anthem for the nation…

  19. Timi don’t just sing he sings inspirational songs I love him,but I know they won’t replaced the national Anthem

  20. The song was touching and moving at the same time. It won’t be a bad idea if used as national anthem. Great song

  21. The song is so great and tocuhing, even thou it cant be make national anthem, at least they should recognise it well.

  22. A countries Anthem should remain evergreen and unchanged, why should they think of changing the National Anthem

  23. He really sings from the heart. The first time I heard his song without knowing the artist, I concluded he wasn’t Nigerian until I was proved wrong.

  24. The song must have been really touching and inspiring. This Timi Dakolo has always wowed me with his songs though

  25. Timi dakolo is a good and well behaved artist but do you think it’s easy to change the whole nation anthem

  26. Is Nigeria a great nation let tell our self the truth we remain on our national song that we all know

  27. Timi is a great musicians and a very talented one. All his songs are well meaningful and the musical concept are awesome. His Song, Great Nation is so unique and deserve to be a National Anthem

  28. Wow so lovely.. The lyrics are superb.. Well done Timi.. You are truly amazing and a wonderful artist..

  29. THE NATIONAL ANTHEM CANT BE CHANGED BECAUSE OF YOUR MUSIC MY DEAR SORRY THATS A COUNTRY AFFAIR TO HANDLE

  30. Wow this song must b amazing this one Niger they compliment on it like this even asking it should be our national anthem hope is simple to learn cause most of us don’t even no the one we are singing for ages

  31. This song is so wonderful and emotional
    Let it be used as 3Rd standard of Nigeria national Anthem.

  32. Great nation is a sing I don’t know, but if Nigerian say its God music then I can not agree less

  33. Though the song is beautiful and it came straigh from his house I don’t think it should be used as our National Anthem, the one we have is good enough

  34. Timi is an inspirational singer with soul lifting songs and mind blowing lyrics. I second the motion to move for the adoption of his song as our new national anthem.

  35. Timi is a nice singer and has good songs but for his song being used as the new National anthem I don’t see this happening
