Who knew? But it seems like people are still playing Highlife.
Highlife was the (mostly) before the Nigerian Civil War (Biafra War, late '60s) popular music of Nigeria. I came across a stash of Highlife records in 1975 at a friend's house (a cousin had been in the Peace Corps). I made copies, and I wore that CD out. Pretty catchy stuff, eh?
And people are still playing it! Good deal.
