Highlife revival in Nigeria

The BBC's Lagos' correspondent has a nice piece about the revival of high life music in Nigeria. He noted that highlife was big in Nigeria in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s but gradually went into decline during the Biafran Civil War (1967-70) when many musicians joined the various armies. But some musicians and clubs in Nigeria's commercial capital are trying to bring highlife back into prominence.
