In addition to the music and singing, I'm showcasing these videos to highlight the traditional clothing, traditional women's hairstyles, and the dancing that is shown in these videos.

Thanks to Sir Wilker Jackson for his musical legacy. RIP.

Thanks to all others who are featured in these videos and thanks to the producers of these videos. Thanks also to NAija Soundz and to Wyld Pytch/51 Lex Records, the publishers of these YouTube videos.

Information about Sir Wilker Jackson and information about these songs would be greatly appreciated. For example, is this Highlife music? What are the titles for these songs? And what is each song about?

Another Sir Wilker Jackson vido ( included this information in its summary: "sir wilker is a Akwa Ibom Artiste that is known with his beautiful female dancers." Commenters in that video's discussion thread wrote that Sir Wilker Jackson was an Akrom Ibrom singer. Here are two comments from that video's discussion thread:

Here are a few selected comments from this video's discussion thread
vixxy02, 2009
"inmytime: I just love it! It reminds me of the mornings in Calabar,when this genre would be playing on Cross River radio and the pounding of the mortar, and the smell of akara would wake me up, and the sound of 'ala olok' in the distant background, and the 'ogi' sellers calling out "ogi! akara!"
Dah uwem ama nem ini odo!!"

"Chief kooffreh USA MUSIC ARTIST/PDP CHAIRMAN USA This is a traditional dance of Calabar people called "Ekombi" and and the saying is based on idiomatic expressions for example HE IS SAYING A BAD WOMAN NO MATTER WHAT YOU/HUSBAND GIVE TO HER HER VIRGINA /LEGS IS ON THE STREET which we all know it is the truth. Then Akpabuyo small town about 40 miles from Calabar city Nigeria girl is beautiful.He sounds like he comes from Akpabuyo the singer." 

Queen E, 2013
