Prince Nico Mbarga

Prince Nico Mbarga (1 January 1950 24 June 1997) was a highlife musician, born to a Nigerian mother and a Cameroonian father in Abakaliki, Nigeria. He is renowned for his hit song "Sweet Mother", recorded with his band Rocafil Jazz. Although he only recorded one significant hit, "Sweet Mother," in 1976, which sold more than 13 million copies (and which is recognized as one of Africa's greatest songs), Mbarga played an important role in the evolution of African popular music. With his soulful vocals set to the light melodies of his acoustic guitar, Mbarga created a unique hybrid of Igbo and Congolese guitar playing and uplifting highlife rhythms.
