Uchenna Ikonne is a writer & filmmaker originally from Nigeria now based in Boston. He makes an amazing blog called With Comb & Razor dedicated to Nigerian (and Brazilian and other types too) music. He recently put up a mix of Nigerian country tunes. If you had no idea that country music was popular in W Africa, you are not alone. But this is definitely worth checking. Pleasing to the air and expanding to the mind. Here’s a sample:

Bongos Ikwue – “Show Me A Virgin (In A Maternity Ward)”
