Sunny Ade & His African Beats

This Nigerian LP on the African Songs label from 1974 is shared with Sunny Ade's African beats and Apola Sounds by Idowu Animasahun. The sleeve notes say -"The story of Sunny Ade and African Beats dates back a number of years. within this short period of time, however, the African beats has made tremendous impact and completely revolutionised the trend of ju ju music in the country.... The music is called African Beats and the dance style is more recently christened Synchro System Movement." No mention the songs on here so one must assume they are well known hits of the time and need no explaination among the faithful fans of Sunny Ade. Discover more about King Sunny Ade HERE.
