February is the month of love and nothing says “I love you” more than a song that expresses that feeling.

 We recently asked Maisha Magic East fans on social media to share their favourite love songs – and these are the Top 5 songs that made the cut.

Chaguo La Moyo by Otile Brown and Sanaipei Tande

When the heart chooses a mate and locks in for the long haul, nothing can break that special bond. This kind of love is exactly the kind that Pete’s Nuru and Jasiri have. Watch this couple weather the storms, and be inspired to love with everything you have, every Monday to Wednesday at 8 pm on Maisha Magic East.

These Arms by All 4 One

Words of affirmation are very important in relationships – and with lyrics like ‘Darling the only guarantee I can make; these arms won’t let your heartbreak’ it’s obvious why quartet All 4 One’s These Arms makes this list.

Love Somebody by Rotimi

‘You haven’t lived until you’ve loved somebody,’ Rotimi professes in this beautiful love song. And that statement makes perfect sense. Have you seen how the eyes sparkle when you are loved right? And how about that glowing skin? Wouldn’t you say this is the kind of love enjoyed by Patricia and Leshan on Selina, which airs every Monday to Friday at 8:30 pm?

Fire on Fire by Sam Smith

Have you met the person that takes your breath away each time you see them? If you have, you will know that when this feeling is reciprocated, then it's fire on fire – and that is what this song is all about.

Perfect by Ed Sheeran

In this song, Ed Sheeran paints a clear picture of a beautiful girl who is ‘an angel in person; stronger than anyone he knows.’ And honestly, this makes our hearts smile.

Many thanks to all our Maisha Magic East fam that voted or sent through their submissions. Catch all the inspiring love stories on Maisha Magic East on DStv 158 and GOtv 4 all week!
