Nigerians have taken to social media to react to Wizkid’s ‘Essence’ single off his ‘Made In Lagos’ album being featured on Barack Obama’s favorite tracks in 2020.
Yesterday, December 19, the 44th President of the United States of America took to his official Twitter handle and shared a list of his favorite music of 2020.
Wizkid and Omah Lay happened to be the only known African artists who made it to the list, and their fans are so excited for them being able to get recognized by Barack Obama, as they happily reacted on Twitter.
The former President of the United States of America sharing the list, he wrote; “Here are some of my favorite songs of the year. As usual, I had some valuable consultation from our family music guru, Sasha, to put this together. I hope you find a new song or two to listen to.”
