She didn't come here to suffer—she came to enjoy.
Lady Donli continues to flex her creative muscles with her newest track, "Suffer Suffer."
Nigeria's very own pulls from the old and not so old of Nigerian pop-culture as we await the release of her new album. The song begins with Fela Kuti-inspired chanting: "Suffer suffer suffer no go come here, no come my way." It's definitely a mantra we all should bear in mind—the stress isn't worth it.
In "Suffer Suffer," Donli also opens up and shares bits of her life story of trying to make it as an artist, struggling in Lagos after moving from Abuja, despite her father's warnings. In hopes of chasing the suffering away, she sprinkles a bit from "National Moi Moi"—a hit from the early 2000s by Nollywood star Patience Ozokwor.
Peep some clips from the music video in Donli's epic promo clip for the single.
