I have had a love for Nollywood (Nigerian Hollywood) movies since I was a 5-year-old sitting in the braid shop. My Senegalese stylist Issa would hook me up with the perfect protective styles, and let me choose the movies since I would always be the first client. They were the perfect distraction for those 5-hour visits. So of course if I was watching the movies, I was hearing the music. I didn't know the languages, but I did know I loved the way the Afro beats made my soul feel connected to Africa. So I decided to get a playlist going from some of my favorite Nigerian artists.
Listen or Weep,
