A Life In The Limelight: Lagos Disco & Itsekiri Highlife 1976-1981 by Julie Coker

It’s not often that we get in a record by a former Miss Western Nigeria. It’s also not often that we get in a record by a woman who was her country’s first ever female television presenter. But then again, Julie Coker is not your average artist. A friend of Fela Kuti during her heyday, the Nigerian singer and television personality is now honoured with her first compilation courtesy of Kalita Records. A Life In The Limelight: Lagos Disco & Itsekiri Highlife 1976-1981 draws from Coker's Tomorrow and Ere Yon (Sweet Songs) albums. This is a superb collection of boogie and highlife to add to the collection. Bonus points for those of you who spotted that ‘Ere Yon’ was recently re-worked by Anderson .Paak on his Oxnard LP.
