Nigerian Art & Culture
Nigerian versatility in art is so great that it is generally felt that all African nations should view Nigeria as the principal trustee of the most durable fruits of black artistic genius. The oldest sculptures found in Nigeria were from the Southern Zaria and Benue areas of central Nigeria. They consist of terracotta figures and figurines made by a people who achieved a high degree of cultural sophistication. These sculptures, together with other cultural elements, have been named the Nok Culture.

Owing to the ravaging influences of Western civilization and the non-chalant attitudes of Nigerians to the appreciation, promotion and preservation of our culture, some of our indigenous music like Highlife, Apala, Fuji, Juju, Makosa, Hausa, Ibo, Yoruba, Ijaw, Ibibio, Tiv, Kanuri, Igala, Sakara, Kalangu, etc, the instruments with which they are played, our appreciation of the musicians themselves and their hit tracks are gradually vanishing in our memories. In Nigeria today, our indigenous music is losing face and morals, and the younger generation are being assimilated into druggish culture. What we now listen to is organised noise . This website seeks to keep alive the memories of some strong breeds amongst Nigerian musicians for those who care to learn from the past so as to affect their future.
