These songs should be on your Saturday morning #FitFam playlist

If you’re hitting the gym this morning, you need adrenaline-fueled songs that emphasise strength and dedication push beyond limits. To curate your playlist we suggest a genre by genre selection of the following songs.


Rap/ Hip-Hop

Rap music is always great for motivation. The perfect rap songs for workout should have heavy percussions, consistent flow and sleek rhymes. We recommend the following songs:

Pon Pon Pon – DaGrin

Eyan Mayweather – Olamide

Anoti – M.I

King Kong – Vector

Jagaban – YCee

Alobam – Phyno



An effort can be placed on lyrical content when selecting Afro-pop songs for workout. The most important quality however, is a consistency of  instrumentals warped around quick lightweight lyrics. The following songs are perfect examples;


Azonto – Wizkid

No Shaking – 2face

Bitch Better Have My Money (Afro Remix) – Tiwa Savage, Reakado Banks

Lobatan – Dammy Krane

Emi Ni Baller – Chidinma, Wizkid, The Suspect

Dami Duro – Davido

Free – 2face

Fokasibe – DJ Zeez

Banger – Runtown, Uhuru

Inspired – Waje


Alternative, Afro Beat and Others

Subgenres outside Afro-pop and Rap are not very famous for adrenaline infused vibes needed for workouts. This is because instrumentals usually take a mellow rhythm to accommodate the wordiness of their lyrics. Nonetheless, if you listen to content, these following songs would fit perfectly on your workout playlist.

Stronger – Bez

Keep On Rocking – Remedies
