Music Genre That's Capable Of Uniting All Nigerians From All Parts Of Nigeria by Nobody: 8:12pm On Jun 15, 2023
Apart from afro beats and gospel music, I'd like to know what's that one music genre from Nigeria that's not popular, but yet capable of uniting all Nigerians from all parts of Nigeria despite them being from different tribes?

In South Africa I'd have to say it's gwijo music genre... The name originates from the Xhosa culture and it involves collective singing, it has now spread throughout all the South African cultures to a point that you'd find people singing this genre of music in celebrations, funerals, schools, work places, and any other community gatherings, it doesn't matter the tribe you're from... It's capable of uniting families, friends, school mates, colleagues, community members, and etc.

Some of us grew up singing this genre of music, but we just didn't know the actual name for it... grin grin grin

So I'd like to know which Nigerian music genre is also capable of uniting Nigerians apart from Afro beats and gospel.

I'll give examples of gwijo music.

1. A group of friends singing together.

3. Soldiers singing together.

4. A football team singing together.

5. South African firefighters singing in Canada upon arriving to assist with wildfires.

Theres afro fusion and afro pop too.

We have afro pop and afro fusion too in SA.

I want to know if you guys have that Nigerian local music genre that symbolises unity amongst all Nigerians in Nigeria.

It doesn't have to be popular... Gwijo isn't popular, but it's common amongst South Africans.

My personal favorite gwijo songs are as follows:

And since they're my favorite, I'll try to translate the lyrics... grin grin grin

1. The song is titled Akusekho lokho, meaning 'it's no no more'.
It's a cry song and it basically talks about Africa, the lyrics are as follows:

This world used to be fun
But now it's no more
We grew up loving each other
But now we're in tears

It's an emotional song and I think a lot of people can relate to it because we've all had those failed friendships, relationships, families, even jobs, we've also lost our loved ones to death... Some of the singers ended up getting emotional in the end.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGLsOB2L6w8

2. The song is titled ndifuna ukugoduka, meaning 'I want to come back home'... There's something about high school boys or young men singing gwijo music, it just sends chills down my spine... grin grin grin
The lyrics are as follows:

This girl is playing with me
Mama let me in
I want to come back home

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64Wh0ckd2ic

I have a lot more favourite gwijo songs, but I think these two will be enough.. grin grin grin

I said apart from afro beats and gospel, don't you guys have any other music genre that symbolises unity amongst Nigerians?

Can you guys sing afro beats collectively at funerals, community gatherings, schools, and etc?

We also have amapiano, kwaito, gqom, but I don't see us collectively singing such genres of music in such places... We love them, but they have their own time and places.. grin grin grin

Isn't there that one Nigerian local music genre that symbolises unity amongst Nigerians apart from afro beats? The kind of music whereby you guys sing for the sake of unity and not for monetary gain? That music whereby if you go to the north and start singing, the northerners will back you up, or go to the west, east, even southern Nigeria?

afrobeat

Highlife
Fuji
Apala
Amapiano
Nigerian Reggae, etc.
I don't think we have any song apart from the national anthem that fits your narrative. Nigeria is too variegated and tribalistic to generally adopt a certain song or indigenous language.

We don't have and it's not even possible to have because of our differences in this country. We embrace our ethnic differences much more than anything in this zoo of a country.

But it's only afrobeats that can do this which you already opted out on your post. Even the gospel don't unite us that much. It's only afrobeats or afropop that can atleast unite Nigerians.
