Proverb of the Week
Kenyan internet comedian and self-proclaimed “professional bragger” Elsa Majimbo shares her favorite proverb: “It’s the audacity for me.” The proverb comes from online viral Tik Tok videos, which Elsa often quotes in her own content. “You eat junk food, whatever you want, pizza and don’t work out? It’s the audacity for me” which translates to “through the pain, our path is still clear.”
Cuppy finishes this week’s show with a special Wizkid mini-mix to celebrate his new No. 1 album ‘Made in Lagos.’

Wizkid on his relationship with Skepta
I think why the music comes out so solid is because we have a great relationship outside music, we have a great relationship as young brothers in this game hustling to take it to the world and beyond. We’re fathers so we connect in so many ways and everytime he comes to Lagos, we are together.
