When you are broke, some songs make you want to smash something, and others make you want to fall down and cry. Lyrics that you normally just vibe to, will now sound like it was written for you, or that the artist knows how heartbreaking your account balance is at the moment. But some other songs inspire you to work and remind you that you wont be broke forever. So here the 10 best songs to jam to when things dey tight and money dey do shakara for you.
10. P-Square- E No Easy
The best part of this song is where the lyrics go ”even if you no get money….dey jollie dey shake body” And that’s the part where you turn it up, thank God for life and resolve to keep grinding while being happy. “no need to dey tear body”
9. Aloe Blacc- I Need A Dollar
This hustle-mode classic will have you verbalizing your wishes….in foreign currency, as Aloe Blacc chants about needing a paying job and some dough. ” Hey Hey”
8. Disney( Oliver & Company) – Why Should I Worry
Why is a Disney movie song on this list? Well check out the lyrics. ”Why should i worry, why should i care? I may not have a dime….but i’ve got street savoir faire”
To put it simply, it means i can not come and kee myself, when I know i’m a hustler. Somehow somehow, I go make am.
7. Abba- Money Money Money
What would you rather sing than a chorus that screams MONEY MONEY MONEY? And then reminds you of all you can do if you had some of it. Come on. This is classic for those broke days.
6. Davido Ft Olamide- The Money
Give me the money…biko nyem ego. Please epp me!!! Even when you have money to spend, this song still makes you want more. Especially when those rich boys in the club are popping bottles as if they have the right to sing along with the lyrics…and you don’t.
