{Review}: Lade’s “Adulthood Anthem” trends, it’s relatable

Lade Adulthood Anthem Review

The song has been a smash since its release.

Lade’s Adulthood Anthem speaks on the experiences of Nigerian Young Adults which encompasses the struggle to be solely responsible for themselves. And this, can be a huge challenge.


Adulthood Anthem by Lade is extremely relatable. Let’s start from how very true the lyrics are. Growing up in Nigeria, once you are old enough to take care of yourself, or even if your parents managed to send you to University….

You should take care of yourself once you graduate because they believe you have what can take you through life- a diploma/degree. In this case, they claim they even had less when they were growing up.

At this stage, Lade Adulthood Anthem brings home what a lot of people go through, and are still going through. You are expected to feed yourself, buy clothes, rent a house, and still do fine while navigating life issues and love relationships. Truly, Adulthood na scam!



Adulthood anthem review

Lade Adulthood Anthem  outlines how growing up to being a young adult is a huge experience on its own.

An experience that requires you being extremely responsible for yourself. It points out how being responsible to oneself is what you alone can do and no one else.

Examining Adulthood Anthem shows that being an adult is not something you toy with. You need to man up, or even “Woman up” in this case.

Lade’s Adulthood Anthem  tells us everything that will happen to you once you become an adult. You probably won’t have people checking up on you or even asking how far you are faring.

The funny thing is when Adulthood Anthem lyrics by Lade says she wishes she were a child again. I mean, won’t that be really cool?

Being a child means that people are responsible for you. So yes, Lade Adulthood Anthem  brings us to the realization of how we are in for what seems to be a struggle



Lade’s delivery on Adulthood Anthem is borne out of her personal experience. You can literally feel the passion.

You can’t miss out on the point where she reaches a notch of her vocals. It’s like a rendition of what everyone feels but can’t say out loud all the time.

Every young adult is trying to show that they have it all locked down. Like they have figured everything out. Meanwhile, that’s not the case most of the time.

This is what Lade expatiates on with Adulthood Anthem.

Nobody has figured it out. We are all just trying to make it along the way with prayer, hardwork and God’s grace.


Replay Value
