SOUL JAZZ BOOKS

Nigeria: The Cover Art of Nigerian Music

Edited by Stuart Baker.

Nigeria: The Cover Art of Nigerian Music

An incredible collection of vibrant Nigerian record cover designs from the second half of the 20th century, most of which have never been seen outside of Africa

This unique large-format book features hundreds and hundreds of unique and stunning record sleeve designs from Nigeria that span a period from the country’s independence in 1960 through much of the second half of the 20th century—a time in which Nigerian artists and the Nigerian music industry thrived both at home and abroad.
During this period, high-profile Nigerian artists such as Fela Kuti, King Sunny Ade, Sonny Okosun, Haruna Ishola, Oriental Brothers International Band, Tony Allen, Blo and Chief Ebenezer Obey became national and international stars. Many more Nigerian artists established successful careers at home and yet remain virtually unknown outside of Nigeria to this day.
This book features the most important Nigerian artists both at home and abroad (as well as many of those that have remained unknown outside of the country), bringing together a vast array of rare, classic and stunning visual sleeve designs that document more than 50 years of the amazing musical, graphic art and social history of Nigeria.
