There are loads of famous Nigerian bands, but at the same time, there are loads of non famous live bands.As long as you’ve heard them play at an event, that’s all the proof you need.When choosing a live band, make sure you ask them to send you a CD ofan event they played at and then you can judge for yourself if you like them or not.
