Hillary is one of many women who encourage women everywhere to dare to dream. The comforting truth is that women are, have always been, and will continue to be, legendary. As a reminder of this, and because it is the weekend, we have compiled a playlist of old and new songs from female musicians who make us dance, laugh, cry and aspire to be more.
Vulindlela – Brenda Fassie
The ever relevant Brenda Fassie is the first on our playlist with the 1997 classic Vulindlela.
School Your Face – Temi DollFace
Fittingly described as an ambassador of unfettered possibilities, Temi dares us to be unconventional. With her music and style she asks, why be normal when you can be beautifully you?
Agolo – Angelique Kidjo
Next is Grammy award winner Angelique Kidjo, dedicated activist and pioneer, with Agolo released in 1994.
If I Start To Talk – Tiwa savage
This incredible songstress and song writer continues to chart an enviable course in pop music. If I Start to Talk, off the R.E.D album serves as an anthem of all of the pain women go through and most often than not, bear alone.
Seun Rere – Christy Essien-Igbokwe
With the song which translates in English as “be good/do good” from the Ever Liked My Person? album implores us to do and be good.
Heartbeat – Nneka
This song will surely wake you up to the world’s realities and your capabilities.
One Love – Onyeka Onwenu
This song on peace and unity at a time where civil unrest was the order of the day in Nigeria, is as relevant today as it was in 1986.
The Future – TY Bello
Acclaimed photographer and musician TY Bello wraps up this playlist with a powerful message, ‘we are the future.’
So, go on sister, dance and remember, you are a star!
