Songs by Nigerian musicians, Burna Boy and Ayra Starr have been included in former President of the United States of America, Barack Obama’s 2023 summer playlist.
The 44th American leader unveiled the list on Thursday night.
“‘Sittin’ On Top Of The World’ by Grammy award-winning Nigerian singer, Burna Boy featuring US-based British rapper, 21 Savage, and Ayra Starr’s ‘Sability’ were the only afrobeats songs on the playlist.
Sharing the playlist, Obama said, “Like I do every year, here are some songs I’ve been listening to this summer — a mix of old and new. Look forward to hearing what I’ve missed.”
Recall that Wizkid, Tems and Rema have made President Obama’s playlists in the past.
