The early 60’s and 70’s in Nigeria saw a new trend of people trying new things,and this also goes for the Nigeria music industry then. In the fore front of new innovative tunes and trends were these two great men who came and introduce a new set of music ideology and pattern.
What they created was magic!!!! One was funky and subtle in his message and the other was strong and radical with his.
King Sunny Ade and Afro-Beat Icon Fela Anikulapo Kuti has seen in this picture,this two men paved way for a lot of music acts in Nigeria today. This Picture was taken in the early probably in the late 60’s or early 70’s. Apart from the fact that they were music icons,both men were fashionable style guru’s too.
