Every year, the former president always shares his favorite playlist in the year. While American artistes always top his music playlist, the former president is still fond of African music, especially Nigerian music.

Three songs from Nigerian stars – Burna Boy, Rema and Ayra Starr made it to his favourite music of 2022. Obama listed 25 songs as his favourite for the year ending in a few days, and Burna Boy’s Last Last, Ayra’s Rush and Rema’s Calm Down made the list from Nigeria.

As always, Beyonce made it to the list, including, Kendrick Lamar, Lizzo, Rosalia and others.

The ex-US president revealed his favorite list via his official Twitter page on Saturday, saying he enjoyed sharing the list.

“I always enjoy sharing my end of year music playlist with all of you — and this year we heard a lot of great songs. Here are some of my favorites,” Obama wrote.

“Are there any songs or artists I should check out?” He asked.
