These songs always seem to give me that extra boost to get through my toughest workouts. What’s on your playlist?”

My Money, My Baby’ and ‘I’m Dope’ by Burna boy and Tobe Nwigwe respectively, are the two songs repping Nigeria on the list. ‘My Money, My Baby’ was released in 2019 under the album Queen & Slim (Original Motion Picture Score).
