As we await payday and look upon our empty bank accounts, we decided to come up with ten Nigerian songs to add to our playlists to sha comfort ourselves.

Money – M.I.

“Money slow to enter, money quick to go”

One day e go better – Safari

Don’t worry, dry your tears, one day one day e go better.

Money – Timaya ft. Flavour

You might be broke but at least you’ll discover who your true friends are.

Penalty – Small Doctor

“If you no get money hide your face” – Small Doctor, 2017

Rich and Famous – Praiz

Because the struggle is temporary.

Rich – M.I. ft. Koker

Because your situation right now is only temporary last last.

Ojuelegba – Wizkid

Let Wizkid inspire you, the same way he came out of Ojuelegba is the same way you’ll come out of this brokeness.

Fake Love – Wizkid ft. Duncan Mighty

Send this to the love of your life, to remind them that a small thing like lack of money shouldn’t come between your love.

Because we know that this brokeness is only temporary we also added the perfect song to add to your playlist on payday.

Don’t worry you too will be balling from Monday to Sunday soon.
