Different genres Of Nigerian Music by chiogo(f): 7:52pm On Sep 11, 2008
Hi y'all. At school today, we were asked to list as many as possible, the types of music from our culture.

That was when I realized that I didn't really know Nigerian music genres. Well, I mentioned a couple I've heard of such as fuji and juju although I don't really know what they sound like.

I could ask my parents but they'D probably give me only music from the igbo culture. I don't need it for school anymore but for knowledge of the Nigerian music and culture.

Hopefully, other people would learn from here.

@Baro, thanks. I never heard of the "Ekasa" one but I got the rest.

Well, from the number of replies compared to the # of views, I can deduce that Nigeria never really had much music except the imported ones. So, I guess it wasn't really my fault for not knowing.

Re: Different genres Of Nigerian Music by doyin13(m): 3:48am On Sep 13, 2008
Yes oo. . .@topic

You should give AXE a try.

It is brazilian but with a strong element of Yoruba.

The names of prominent exponents will indicate this.

Olodum (from Olodumare), Ilu Aiye, etc. . . .

@*Morenike, dayum! How could you say that? This is the mentality we have which makes us to not know music from our culture. I know haitian-Americans who know and appreciate their music and I personally don't think their music is better than Nigeria's.

The only Nigerian music that are appreciated are usually the imported ones such as hip hop which a 5-yr old can tell you did not originate from Nigeria or Africa as a whole. If I write hip hop and r & b, what will the AAs now write? Or if I write reggae, what would the Jamaicans do? Man. . . I tire for naija people and their copy-copy. That's why I want the real nigerian music genres.

@yeah, to those of you who are here to have side-conversations, please, this isn't the place. So, y'all can kindly go to the "romance" section.

It does not have to do with mentality or what not. It has to do with preference. I prefer rock music to all their rap/hip pop etc.
The only Nigerian GENRE I can bare listening to is the gospel. Yoruba gospel. Apart from that, you would not catch me dead listening to 9ice, or w/e.

Ok, 2face used to be my doug, but now. . . . . nah

@*morenike, well I do agree with you on the Tuface thingy. I used to like him but uhh,. . .homeboy got wack overnight. Anyway, I'm playing his song "African queen' next week in music class,. . .still a nice song and kind of has the african flavor, . .whatever that means.

@dreeldee, no problem.
Re: Different genres Of Nigerian Music by Morenike3(f): 4:04am On Sep 13, 2008

Hehehe, I wish I could be there. Rock on sistah
Re: Different genres Of Nigerian Music by chiogo(f): 4:10am On Sep 13, 2008
Lolololol, singing his song?? Hell naw. I said playing it, unless they got a male version of 'african queen'. . .I can't sing that either- too shy. Anywayz, we were asked to play it. I've had it on my ipod for a while now so I'D just play it.

Afro hip hop thats the lamest excuse most Nigerian artistes use to create whack music they say they are singing Afro hip-hop so i bet a Chinese would say he is doing Chinese hip hop or and so on
