So, last week I was writing a post about the Tecno W4 and I wanted to make a pun with W4’s Wagba Kontrol. That sent me down a rabbit hole where I stumbled on a bunch of old Nigerian Hip-Hop songs. The second I started playing them, the office lit up, and we went from a quiet room of TechCabal and Zikoko writers to a bunch of 20-something year olds chanting enthusiastically while they worked.

I’ve made them into a YouTube playlist called NSTLGA, and I dare you to listen till the end without feeling nostalgic.
