Your favourite musicians also have favourite musicians, and that’s why we created #MyLoop — a weekly series that asks Nigerian stars who they like to listen to when they’re feeling any type of way.

BUJU has been one of the year’s most exciting new talents. He landed his big break with “Spiritual” — a Zlatan-assisted hit that ranks among the best songs of 2019. He then went on to earn a well-deserved nomination for ‘Rookie of the Year’ at the Headies.

Since then, the rising star has continued to put out music that reaffirms his gifts. His last two singles, the confident “L’Enu” and the romantic “Ohema” made our must-listen lists, and thankfully, he shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

So, in a bid to learn more about BUJU before he becomes the massive star he is clearly destined to be, we decided to ask him which songs he listens to when he is feeling any major emotion or doing something as simple as getting dressed.

From Hozier to Burna Boy, here are the artists that made BUJU’s loop:

1. Happy:

2. Sad:

3. Angry:

4. In Love:

5. Heartbroken:

6. Turned On:

7. Uninspired:

8. Homesick:

9. Driving:

10. Getting Dressed:
