To celebrate Nigeria’s independence, Spotify has unveiled three playlists to showcase the diversity of music in Nigeria. The playlists are a fusion of Fuji and other genres of music. The playlists are expected to relate to all age brackets, and the kind of music Nigerians have been listening to for over a decade. The range from Fuji to Afrobeats makes it easy for the playlist to be enjoyed and for people to discover new genres of music.
