Brand New WayoFunk, Fast Times & Nigerian Boogie Badness 1979-1983
While it was a boom time for a wide variety of popular music styles, the predominant commercial sound was a post-afrobeat, slickly modern dance groove that retrofitted the relentless four-on-the-floor bass beat of disco to a more laidback, upbeat-and-downbeat soul shuffle, mixing in jazz-funk, synthesizer pop and afro feeling. At the time, it was still mostly locally referred to as “disco”, but has since been recognized as its own unique genre retrospectively dubbed “Nigerian Boogie”. ‘Brand New Wayo’ collects 15 pulsing Nigerian boogie tracks in a lovingly compiled package chronicling one of the most progressive and creative eras in the history of African popular music.
