While anticipating her debut album Enjoy Your Life, Lady Donli has released Suffer Suffer to sum up what her mood is about all year. She had earlier sang about her addiction to money in Cash, her first single off the album. Suffer Suffer is another single from Donli’s forthcoming album and she makes it clear that no form of hardship is allowed to associate with her. She recounts her earlier days of struggling in her music journey and growth, so yeah, she asserts that she deserves her “national cake” and “national moi moi” now.

Released with the song, is a nostalgic lyrics video that gives a throwback tribute to the old Nollywood movie setting in which the singer stars as “Mama Cash”. The concept of Lady Donli getting her National cake and Moi Moi is inspired by the legendary Mama Gee’s 2008 hit, National Moi Moi. Suffer Suffer’s lyrics video features scenes from the music video of Mama Gee’s National Moi Moi.
The acclaimed Alte queen also draws inspiration from the original Afrobeat sound, particularly from Fela Kuti. But unlike Fela’s Suffering and Shmiling which motifs on the hard knock life, Lady Donli doesn’t want any of that.
