Discography of Prince Adekunle



While little-known outside of Nigeria, General Prince Adekunle has been a major innovator and force in the juju music scene. His band, the Western Brothers (later the Supersonic Sounds) launched the careers of many musicians, notably Sir Shina Peters and Segun Adewale. - John Beadle
