V-Day Editorial: 30 African Songs To Make Love, Not War.

Hello dear readers,

It’s February 10th and in four days, we are supposed to celebrate romantic love. I personally celebrate all forms of love everyday, but for this particular season and occasion I’ve come up with a playlist just like last year to spice up (some will say level-up) your  February 14th. Last year’s playlist have proven to be very efficient as I received lots of positive feedbacks from friends, media personalities and even my elder brothers (sorry for exposing you).

See this year’s playlist as the continuation of a work of great meticulousness that has started a year ago. Like a chef, I have carefully selected for you the finest songs released by African artistes between 2014 and 2018 to make your Valentine’s day unique. I have concocted a menu of 30 exquisite songs to make the atmosphere of your soirée evolve gradually.

Given that Africa is a multi-cultural continent, you will be exposed to the top of the cream from various countries like Angola, Cameroon, Ghana, Mali, Kenya, Nigeria etc. Without saying more, I will let you read through the menu and then hit the play button of your device. You can listen to the playlist either on YouTube, Spotify or Apple music.

Bon appétit!
