I just came back from spending 3 weeks in Sierra Leone for the holidays, and my feet have not recovered from all the dancing I did while I was there. One thing I LOVE about Sierra Leoneans (and most Africans in general) is we know how to have a good time! And I don’t care if it’s the club, a wedding reception, or a baby’s christening- everyone, young and old, is on the dance floor.
And at every party I attended, there were 5 songs every DJ knew to play. Songs I never heard before I landed in Sierra Leone, but they got me out of my seat every time, and I now know them word for word. Take a listen and thank me later:
1. Chop My Money, by P.Square
2. Oliver Twist, by D’Banj
3. Forver, by P.Square
4. Sex Machine, by Ruff N Smooth
5. Me Own Style, by Shady Baby
Honorable mention: Tutu Pati, by Emerson
This song has be reigning in Sierra Leone for over 5 years and it still brings everyone to the dance floor.
Now don’t you wish you were partying with me is Sierra Leone?
