Former US President Barack Obama included four Nigerian stars in his 2022 summer playlist: Tems, Burna Boy, Pheelz, and BNXN.
Afrobeats, Nigeria’s most popular musical export, continues to grow internationally, and some of the genre’s most popular artists, including Burna Boy, Tems, and Pheelz, are on former American President Barack Obama’s summer playlist for 2022.
The former president of the United States of America (USA) published the list on his official Twitter account on Tuesday, July 26, 2022.
He sees it as an example of how music can truly bring people together.
“Every year, I get excited to share my summer playlist because I learn about so many new artists from your replies—it’s an example of how music really can bring us all together,” Obama Tweeted.
Three songs by Nigerian acts made the Obama 2022 summer playlist: Burna Boy’s ‘Last Last,’ Tems‘ ‘Vibe Out,’ and ‘Finesse,’ the global hit single by ace music producer Pheelz featuring BNXN (formerly known as Buju).
