No matter how you’re feeling during this confusing time, there just might be a new record out there to match your mood.

10. Aye – Naira Marley
This jam “Aye” is a Yoruba word that means ‘Life’. Naira Marley talks deep about life with reference to his popular slang, ‘Inside Life’ and ‘Mafo’. He shares that Life is not hard at all, it’s the humans who live inside life that makes it difficult due to jealousy, envy, hatred, and evilness. Naira further stressed that before he was always scared of the evil ones but now things has changed.
He isn’t afraid of anyone because he doesn’t do evil and wish people bad. On this track, we get to see another side of the singer as we see him speak the bitter truth that humans don’t like to hear. It makes you want to have a rethink about life and change somethings about yourself.
