LIL Playlist

Posted Tuesday, 04 September 2018

Music comes in many shapes and forms, from classical instrumental to explicit rap; whatever the genre, music has a different effect on everyone. Music inspires. Music helps you dream and sparks your imagination. Music makes you want to smile and makes you want to cry. It helps you through good times and bad. Music triggers memories and helps you make new ones. Music pushes you while you work out. Music is an escape. You meditate to it. You run to it. You cry to it. You love to it. It captures your heart and soul. But the best part about music is that it makes you want to dance. With this in mind, we at Lost in Lagos have put together a playlist of our favorite tunes that you can find exclusively on Spinlet.


Adebayo Adenekan

Song: The One

Artist: Clay featuring Johnny Drille

For me, this song is very different from the regular Nigerian style of music. I love the rock feel and the way Clay and Johnny Drille show off their uniqueness in this song.


Tannaz Bahnam

Song: What a Bang Bang

Artist: Omawumi featuring 2Face Idibia

The lyrics speak volumes about the world we live in, and that we are responsible for our actions. Oh, and I love the beat!


Mayokun Braithwaite

Song: FunMi Lowo

Artist: Aramide featuring Sir Dauda

This is my mood for the rest of the year.


Mfonabasi Itama

Song: Asiko

Artist: Femi Leye

I am a fan of Afro-jazz and pop and this song is a mix of both!


Banke Makinde

Song: Fire

Artist: Davido

Because I’m a shorty and I want a million dollars! :)


Mona Opubor

Song: Joy

Artist: Wizkid

This is a really beautiful song about the importance of a mother’s love.


Olamide Udoma-Ejorh

Song: Out The Magazine

Artist: Lindsey Abudei

In Lagos you’re continuously moving, chasing, hustling or taking selfies. This songs always reminds me to stop and live and enjoy in the moment. In the world today it is hard to live in the moment. The rat race is ever present.


Victoria Uruakpa

Song: Baby Mi Da

Artist: Dr. Victor Olaiya featuring 2Face Idibia

I love Baby Mi Da because it’s an indigenous love song that is legendary with a vintage feel to it. Plus it’s my mum's favorite love song.
