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.

Since he made the jump from just producing to producing and performing, Maleek Berry has been a force to reckon with. He’s given us some of the best afropop songs of the decade — from “Been Calling” to “Kontrol” — and he hasn’t even released his debut album yet.

This year, he’s been a little quieter than usual, but that hasn’t stopped him from dropping two solid singles, “Flashy” and “Somebody Falling”. So, we decided to catch up with him to ask what he’s been listening to recently, specifically when he is feeling any major emotion or just getting dressed.

From Wizkid to Nas, here are the artists that made Maleek’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:
