Juju; An Exceptional CD.,
This review is from: In Trance (Audio CD)
What happened to Rock and Roll? Well, Justin Adams resurrected it in Africa with Juldeh Camera. This is an exceptional CD for anyone who really appreciates the TRUE SPIRIT of Rock and Roll that originated in West Africa....not Hollywood.

Well, the guy has got a point... kind of! Rock n Roll derives from Blues, (as Jimmy Page and the late Bert Jansch would tell you), and the origins of this spread back to the West African slave trade, so in some ways the roots of rock could be claimed to be African.
If, however, the reviewer is on about the rock n roll that was flourishing in Nigeria back in the 70's, then you might want to check out this album:
