Burna Boy, Rema, Ayra Starr songs feature in Barack Obama’s ‘ritual’ list

Songs by Nigerian musicians, Burna Boy, Rema and Ayra Starr have been featured by former U.S. president, Barack Obama in his ‘ritual’ list. (TNG) reports former President Obama at the end of the year always releases his annual list of favourites, including movies and books.

This has become more of an annual ritual or what you may want to refer to as customary observance for the former President.

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

TNG reports that Burna Boy’s song that made the list is the popular “Last Last” while that of Rema is “Calm Down” and Ayra Starr’s “Rush”.

Among his favourite written works, Obama listed “The School for Good Mothers” by Jessamine Chan and “The Light We Carry” by former first lady Michelle Obama, noting, “I’m a bit biased on this one.”

On his list of favourite movies, the former president included “Top Gun: Maverick” and “Descendant,” which he also noted he was “biased” about since the Netflix documentary was produced by the Obama-founded company Higher Ground Productions.
