Mr Obama shared his list on his official Twitter platform revealing he had to consult his daughter Sasha who is his family music guru to compile the list.

“Here are some of my favorite songs of the year. As usual, I had some valuable consultation from our family music guru, Sasha, to put this together. I hope you find a new song or two to listen to,” President Obama wrote.

This is not the first time a Nigerian musician will make Obama’s favourite song list.

In 2019, Mavin’s rave singer, Rema, made Mr Obama’s ‘Summer Playlist‘ with his hit song ‘Iron Man.’
