Abstract: This book discusses the growth of popular music in western Nigeria, focusing on social themes, musical styles, and the contexts and ways in which the music has been performed, enjoyed and interpreted since the colonial era. In addition to analyzing specific works by musicians like Ambrose Campbell, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, Victor Olaiya, Haruna Ishola and Abolore Adegbo
la Akande (aka 9ice), the book devotes substantial attention to how popular music in western Nigeria has been disseminated and nurtured in nightclubs in cities like Lagos and Ibadan. Omojola combines the methods of historiography, ethnography and musical analysis to generate a concise study that effectively discusses the integral relationships between musical styles, social practices and political developments in western Nigeria.
