By Bill Friskics-Warren With the revolutionary afrobeat of the late Fela Kuti and the hypnotic juju of King Sunny Ade at the forefront, Nigerian popular music has basked in the international limelight since the 1970s and ’80s, when it captured the imaginations of everyone from Paul Simon to Talking Heads. Today it remains in ascendance with “Fela!,” the hit Broadway musical that runs locally through Feb. 10 at Sidney Harman Hall — and with two new releases from two generations of Nigerian ­singer-songwriters who have links to Fela and who bear witness to the durability and elasticity of the nation’s music. Certainly the most overdue of the two recordings is “Wulu Wulu,” the first release outside Nigeria from 70-year-old singer-songwriter Bongos Ikwue, a contemporary of Fela’s during his mid-’70s heyday.

Bongos Ikwue, one of Nigeria's best-loved artists, returns with his first new recordings in twenty-five years with full dub/reggae overhauls by Brighton's, (& quite possibly the UK's), finest dub producers, Prince Fatty. - banquet records
