The superb 2016 anthology Doing It in Lagos: Boogie, Pop & Disco in 1980s Nigeria combines tracks recorded by various R&B artists who burst onto the Lagos, Nigeria nightclub scene in the '70s and '80s. Inspired by the sophisticated dance-oriented sound of American acts like Chic, Shalamar, and Cameo, Nigerian musicians started crafting their own brand of glamorous, club-ready, good-time jams colloquially referred to as "boogie." A giddy combination of funk, electro, R&B, and disco, "boogie" was a hugely popular style in Lagos clubs.
