BBC 1Xtra will air a special edition focusing on Nigerian artists. The show which has always been recorded in London will be recorded in Lagos for the first time.

The edition of Live Lounge will feature the likes of top Nigerian entertainers Wizkid, 2face Idibia. Others include rappers M.I and Eva Alordiah.

Live Lounge is a feature where an artist performs songs (mostly original, but sometimes covers of other artistes songs) with a live band and backing vocals in a studio setting.
