Lagos Stori Plenti: Urban Sounds From Nigeria

Description

This is a compilation which showcases what young Nigerians all over the country listen to. It is about tapping into the lyrical and musical expressions of a young generation that grew up on hip-hop, reggae and dancehall, yet is very conscious about their Nigerian roots. It is the first internationally released compilation that presents this new sound from Nigeria. There is Eedris Abdulkareem, Nigeria's most controversial rapper - he made international headlines when, whilst on a Nigerian tour with 50 Cent, he got into a fight with 50 Cent's bodyguards, feeling Nigerian artists on the tour were not getting the respect they deserve. Nigerians in the Diaspora are also making waves: from London there are the Afropean four-piece JJC & 419 Squad (featured here with a song which includes Tanzania's R&B superstar T.i.D.) and the only female on the compilation, Weird MC, and from Cologne, Germany, Bantu. Bantu recently took home two Kora awards (the pan African equivalent of a Grammy) for his work with fuji star Adewale Ayuba. The compilation offers a powerful insight into one of the craziest, most fascinating countries on earth.
