“We are Nigerians and everyone knows that we move to Chop Life. It’s our way of life, it’s even detailed in our music, it’s a lifestyle. These songs for my Apple Music playlist have a very personal connection with me. I love to listen to them in my alone time and even when I’m hanging out with friends. I’ll be spending the holiday season bonding with my family as we have spent a greater part of the whole year traveling and making music.” – Mayorkun


“All these songs make the world go round and bring meaning to life. Imagine life without music? Chop life basically means to enjoy life no matter the circumstances, life is the ultimate. I plan to spend the holidays with my loved ones and hit as many stages as possible to make people happy.” – Stonebwoy

“Can’t change the past, don’t know tomorrow, all I have is right now, and I’m gonna dance!” – KiDi

“I’m really a mid-tempo kinda guy. I love smooth sounds that I can bop in the car, shower, wherever, I just kick back and enjoy the vibes. My Apple Music playlist has a bunch of songs that represent my sonic space. Enjoy!” – Blaqbonez

“I love to live life to the fullest. I mean, if we only live once I will enjoy myself to the max. A nice meal of Jollof rice and chicken while listening to my favourite songs on this Apple Music playlist is my own definition of chopping life.” – Teni

“Vibe, groove and energy – the perfect blend of Afrobeats. This infectious sound is here to lift your spirits and keep your energy high at all times. Bad Boy Timz’s selection shows exactly how he likes to chop life.” – Bad Boy Timz

“These are songs that always put us in a calm mood. Nothing says chop life like enjoyment! And that’s pretty much what “chop life” means to us – having a good time, having fun and that’s basically how we intend on spending the holiday season. We’re here for a good time, to make good music, to listen to good music and to give our fans and loved ones something to always look forward to.” – Ajebo Hustlers

“These songs get me through the bad days and put me in a mood where I see life to be simple and worth living.” – Gyakie

“Chop Life is all about maximum enjoyment. We’re thankful for life, so we live it to the fullest. That’s the agenda for another Detty December so run this Apple Music playlist “From sunrise, ‘til sun down, ‘til next night, Don Gorgon”, but don’t forget to keep your loved ones close.” – Bella Shmurda

“This is an Apple Music playlist I curated with love for people to make them feel good, to help them forget all they might be going through and to lose their worries in the thrills of good music.” – Ayra Starr
