Since the top of the year, Lady Donli has released standout singles, including the track "Suffer Suffer." She dropped the music video for "Cash" in April, and released her well-received debut album Enjoy Your Life in August—one of the standout Nigerian albums of 2019. Her song 'Corner' feat. VanJess & The Cavemen made it onto OkayAfrica's list of the 20 best Nigerian songs of 2019.

Davido dropped his sophomore album A Good Time last month, and recently shared the music video for the track "Sweet In the Middle."

OkayAfrica spoke with both artists earlier this month, and asked them to share their memories of the last decade in Nigerian music. "Now with the streaming era it's becoming even more visible, the possibilities are endless," said Lady Donli. "However, I still think there's a whole lot of work to be done, but right now, [I think] this is a good starting point."

Take a look back at the past decade in Aforbeats, and listen to "Cash (Remix)" below.

Kayode Kasum’s Quarantine Watchlist

From 'Wives on Strike' to 'Goodwill Hunting' here's what the Nigerian filmmaker is watching while stuck at home in Lagos.

Kayode Kasum, like most filmmakers, has been stagnated by the coronavirus pandemic. The director behind the blockbuster Sugar Rush and the critically acclaimed Oga Bolaji was working on the post-production of his upcoming movies, The Fate of Alakada: Party Planner and Kambili—a collaboration between FilmOne Entertainment and Chinese Huahua Media— when the Nigerian government announced the lockdown order.

While post-production on Alakada has concluded, the stay-at-home orders have delayed work on Kambili. "Since the team cannot meet at a single point, we are moving hard drives left and right," he says to me over the phone from his home in Lagos. "It is a challenge, but the beautiful thing about a challenge is, when you make it work, it is fulfilling."

Kasum has turned to books and films for an escape from the unpleasant realities of the pandemic. "I have been reading Elnathan's books: Born on a Tuesday and Becoming Nigeria," he tells me. "I have also been reading film directing books, Directing Actors by Judith Weston." However, Kasum longs for the movies. "I miss going to the cinemas; I miss that experience," he says. "There are times during this pandemic that I'm like 'na wa o, I wish I can go to the cinema.'"

Below are five films he recommends you watch during this pandemic.
