Today I picked up two of the biggest selling Nigerian CDs from a street vendor between meetings in Lagos. The first from Asa (pronounced Asha) and the second from 9ice. At a total cost of 400 naira (less than £2) I'm not sure who is making the money here. I first heard 9ice on my way to Abuja city centre when the hit tune Gongo Asa had been playing. Asa (not sure if there is a connection?) I got on the recommendation of my Nigerian work colleague.
