Let me try and help you with the little I know, mostly from the South-Western part Nigeria

Apala
Agidigbo
Sakara (This name was latter given to one of the drums used mostly in Fuji Music)
High life
Shenwele
Dadakuada
Ewi (This also qualifies as a music from my oint of view undecided)
Juju
Fuji
Afro beat (An invention of FELA I guess undecided)

Anything apart AFRO BEAT with Afro in its name is NOT AFRICAN undecided

I may still come back with more cool

@doyin 13, No offence intended, the correct spelling is OGUFE not EGUFE. I don't know whether to call it A Goat or A Ram. All I know is that it shares some features with both He-goat and Ram. Some of it's features are as follows:
Long beared (longer than that of regular He-goats)
Taller than other goats (As tall as Rams)
Slimmer than both Goats and Rams.

I think is a product of cross-breeding between Goats and Sheep undecided

I hope I'm not deviating from the topic grin

Let me add WAKA mainly by Queen Salawa Abeni. Lately we've been hearing Gospel waka

nigeria is using ghana's music genre probably hip life and highlife. If i am lying compare style plus in those previous years with their perfect r n b as compare to now. Those days nigerian musician did r n b and not this current form. So yes copied it from Ghana as Ghana too copied from USA and changed the style by adding local language. Even Ghana was the first to introduce indigenous rap called "kasahare" in our native language by some rappers such okyeame kwame, obour and other which later some musicians like sarkodie and so much others who maked it big and started influencing other part of Africa till today.
