The Highlife: Naija Jams

highlife

The fellas at Little Baobab have been talking up Nigerian Club music since Sogui’s mom visited Lagos and sent him a bunch of CD’s.  I like Bizzy Body, and 2face, and caught a couple tunes like Yahoozee and Gongo Aso, but haven’t been checking for stuff from Nigeria lately, so I’ve been meaning to check some of it out.  I definitely got caught sleeping the other night when DJ Steve threw on a crazy Naija jam by Wande Coal.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I did a little looking on the Internet, and found a mixtape, and a bunch of tunes by various Nigerian artists.  What I love about the Nigerian tunes is they are such a mash of styles from around the world, incorporating Soca, Juju, Akon and T-Pain rap singing, Afro-Beat, Coupe Decale, Zouk and even Reggaeton.  So in that spirit, this time at the Highlife we’ll be playing Naija Jams, Hip Hop and Club Music from around the world.

Come check out the Highlife this Thursday at Otis Lounge in San Francisco.  Chief Boima & Shawn Dub  10pm to 2am, No Cover!
