Top Naija Songs that address Fake Lifestyle. “Fake It till you Make It” is a popular saying by people whose lives are just a combination of lies to make them look good.
Fake Life is defined as the need to look important and relevant meanwhile lacking materially and financially in real life.
This behavior is commonly seen on social media where these people try to bamboozle others with a made-up fantasy of their life.
Nigerian Artists through their songs have addressed this phenomenon and advise fans to be true to themselves and others.
Falz – Weldone Sir
Falz is a good storyteller that why his rap is fun to listen to. His faux yoruba accent gives the listener a music-orgasm. No matter what issue he is talking about, it’s always bound to be an experience.
In “Weldone Sir” Falz doesn’t hold back in dragging a culprit whose fake lifestyle he considers hilarious.
He also subtlety throws shade at internet fraudsters (though this is an issue he is very vocal about). Then Pastors are also not let out.
Telli Person – Timaya ft Phyno, Olamide
This song was said to be a shade to popular internet celebrity, Hushpuppi who was arrested in 2020 for alleged Internet Fraud and cybercrime by Dubai police and FBI.
In the song, Timaya addresses the issue of “Wrong priorities”, which is enjoying life yet refusing to make hay while the sun shines.
In Phyno’s verse, he throws jabs at Hushpuppi, wondering the source of the internet sensation’s source of wealth.
Nobody Ugly – P-Square
During their time, music duo, “P-square” gave us a lot of bangers. “Nobody Ugly” was one of the last set of songs we would get from them before their break-up.
The song addresses Instagram beauty standards and the crazy things slay queens do to stay relevant on social media.
Social Media is filled with different sets of people, one particular set called the Slay Queens or Slay Mamas who are fond of taking pictures in luxurious places which could be in fancy hotels or expensive cars.
