Nigerian Hip Hop is a genre of music that originated in Nigeria in the late 1980s. It is a fusion of traditional Nigerian music, such as highlife and juju, with hip hop and rap. Nigerian Hip Hop is characterized by its lyrical content, which often focuses on social issues, as well as its use of traditional Nigerian instruments and rhythms. It is also known for its use of samples from other genres, such as reggae, dancehall, and afrobeat. Nigerian Hip Hop has become increasingly popular in recent years, with artists such as Olamide, Wizkid, and Davido leading the way.
