8 Fun Songs Every Lagos Trekker Should Have On Their Playlist


February 3, 2020

The Okada ban is the latest reminder of how frustrating living in this country can be, thanks to insensitive policies and questionable decision-making by the government. A lot of people have been thrown back in time and rudely told to trust their legs.

Anyway, we thought a good playlist could make this agonising experience somewhat bearable. These are our picks:

Falz – This is Nigeria

“This is Nigeria. Look how we’re trekking now.”

Lady Donli – Suffer Suffer

“Suffer, suffer, suffer no go come here. Don’t come my way”

Fela Kuti – Zombie

We’re the walking dead, anyway.

Burna Boy – Wetin Man Go Do

“Waka waka. No rest oh.”

Tekno – Rara

Last-last, God will bless everyone.

Burna Boy – Anybody

Get your batteries charged. You don’t want to be the one they need to “knack something”.

Zlatan – Zanku

It turns out that Zlatan was on to something when he made this record. Gbese!

Naira Marley – Tesumole

Let the devil feel your anger as you stomp on the ground.
