As the Super Eagles continue their 2024 African’s Cup of Nations campaign, we send them our best wishes.

What better way to do this than create a playlist that solidifies our mission in Côte d’Ivoire. These songs have all the motivation, ginger and fire our boys need to clinch the top prize.


Africa — Yemi Alade ft. Sauti Sol

It doesn’t matter if it’s the Super Eagles or Black Stars, we are Africans first. This song by Mama Africa, featuring Kenya’s Sauti Sol, tops this playlist for good reason.  It constantly reminds us of our roots and how we’re better united as one.

Want It All — Burna Boy ft. Polo G

Burna opened this song with “Remember when dem no believe me no more?” 

Well, that’s the case of the Super Eagles; last time we won the AFCON was 2013. A decade later, we’re back to take our chances at winning. As a serious team in this to win every goddamn prize, there’s no better motivating song.

23 — Burna Boy

Though 23 is a reference to basketballer Michael Jordan, this song can makes you feel like Messi or Ronaldo. This song doesn’t only pump confidence, it makes you feel invincible.The Super Eagles need this.

Oya Come Make We Go — 2Baba ft. Sauti Sol

Watch the room luminate when our boys play ‘Oya Come Make We Go’

as they leave the dressing room for the pitch. This is essentially saying “let’s go there and have a blast.”

Overkilling — Djinee

Fifteen years later, Djinee’s Overkilling is still the anthem for the people chasing excellence, AKA overkilling, in their fields. This isn’t to exaggerate Super Eagles’ capability, but we can fake it till everyone believes it.

Champion — General Pype

“This is the sound of the champion,” like General Pype said in this song. In fact, it must blast in the stadium when we finally win the 2024 AFCON IJN.

Undisputed Champion — M.I Abaga

M.I’s Undisputed Champion emphasizes the need to build a winning mentality. It’s the anthem that rouses you from sleep.

Stand Strong — Davido ft. Sunday Service Choir

After our draw against Equatorial Guinea on January 14, 2024, our boys clearly need to hold onto this confidence-boost song. Whether the Super Eagles “minus” before the 2024 AFCON final or not, it should keep playing. Recommended it in the morning, afternoon and night.
