7. Swo/ Galala
In the late nineties, when we had what was the Ajegunle phase of Nigerian music with artistes like Baba Fryo, Marvelous Benjy and others, we were introduced to this dance style. I’ve lumped the swo and galala together because in my opinion they’re pretty much the same dance or at least very similar i.e. very razz. I can’t think of any one artiste who first introduced us to the galala, but I remember it was marvelous Benjy (wonder what happened to the guy) who gave us Swo – na the new dance wey dey reign.
After Iyanya had tried the R&B route and it didn’t seem to be werking for the Nigerian market, he decided to turn the corner straight into some Nigerian traditional steez and thus the world (well Nigeria at least) got introduced to the etighi dance. The song and dance became insanely popular and shot Iyanya to the limelight. From children’s parties to owambes around the world, Nigerians were definitely loving the etighi.
