Two rare tracks from when the dance craze that was The Twist hit Nigeria in the early 1960s. Limited to 1,000 copies with free MP3 download. King Kennytone, trumpeter and stalwart of the Nigerian highlife scene of the '50s and '60s, was the foremost purveyor of African Twist in the early '60s. Following the massive dance craze of The Twist in the U.S. and UK in 1961/1962, Kennytone recorded his African Twist numbers at the same time in both English and Igbo.
