2 Inspirational Songs from Naija

Naija

After having posted about Aduke’s Occupy Nigeria song some days ago, here are two other great songs from Naija in which artists raise political and social issues. Socio-political themes have always been part of African Hip hop and in the next weeks I will present some other inspiring examples, from Kenya, DRC and Senegal … watch the space.

eLDee‘s song ‘One Day‘ Nigerian is like a manifesto of Nigerian youths in which they show their demands. In his very energetic piece ‘Clean up NaijaEedris Abdulkareem asks Nigerians to clean up their country from violence and corrupt mentality.

They really don’t care and we don’t neither

we’d rather just chill and watch them deceive us

trust in God, that’s what they teach us

to idolize leaders, ballers, preachers”
