Various

Doing It In Lagos (Boogie, Pop & Disco In 1980s Nigeria)

Label: Soundway
Format: 7", 3xLP
Release Year: 2016

Out of stock

Twenty rare and mostly unavailable tracks from the slick and sassy world of Nigerian pop music and club culture of the early 1980s. The earliest cuts on the collection are firmly rooted within the deep disco sound of 1979 & 1980 before progressing into the boogie and pop that typified the years 1982-84: falsetto vocals, synths, slap-bass, handclaps and a sharp emphasis on the groove.
