FONKO: URBAN MUSIC TRENDS IN SOUTH AFRICA AND NIGERIA
South Africa and Nigeria: two regional super powers in Africa – and pioneers for developments in pop culture and innovative styles. The active club music in South Africa produces styles like SA House and Shangaan electro. Nigeria, where the gap between poor and rich couldn’t be any wider, produces the most commercially successful music of the continent. But there is also a vital protest scene, which continues the work of the late Fela Kuti with musicians like Nneka and Femi Kuti.
