Music from Nigeria – Dr. Alban

This is a song called “It’s my life” from Dr. Alban, a nigerian musician whoose music can be described as Hip-Hop or Reggae with a Dancehall style. This song is from his album “One Love”(typical Reggae name), from the year 1992. Maybe it’s more Dancehall than Worldmusic, but I like it.
