  Fuji music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fuji is a style of popular Nigerian music, popularized in the early 1970s by the one and only "Fuji Creator," Alhaji Sikiru Ayinde Barrister.
Although there were quite many fuji groups with collaboration and rivalry alike around Lagos island by this time, the "fuji" transformation originally became prominent with the recordings of Alhaji Sikiru Ayinde Barrister and Alhaji Monsuru Akande, both of whom recorded for the TYC/African Songs musical labels in Lagos.
Fuji is a percussive style of music, relying on complex interlocking rhythms played on a variety of traditional drums, while also incorporating drum machines and keyboards in its modern incarnation.

 Nigerian Music
Nigerian music also utilizes ostinato rhythms, in which a rhythmic pattern is repeated, and variable metres which change the time signature of a piece of music.
Traditional music from Nigeria is almost always functional; that is, performed to mark a ritual such as a wedding or funeral, and not for pure entertainment or artistic enjoyment.
The most common format for music in Nigeria is a call-and-response choir, in which a lead singer and a chorus interchange verses, sometimes accompanied by instruments which either shadow the lead text or repeat and ostinato vocal phrase.
