Origins Gospel Music In Nigeria
Christian music in Nigeria was first introduced in the 16th century by Portuguese catholic missionaries to Benin and Warri through a rudimentary form of Portuguese liturgical music during the early evangelisation of those kingdoms between 1485 and 1600. However, it was not until the mid-nineteenth century, with the robust missionary activities of the UK based Church Missionary Society (CMS), that wide-spread evangelisation occurred across what was to become Nigeria. The CMS Church introduced the choral music of the Anglican Church, which largely involved congregational singing.

The pioneer of a uniquely Nigerian variant of choral music, was the Reverend Josiah J. Ransome-Kuti, who began experimenting with the fusion of choral music with Yoruba language and melodic structures in the 1890s. He composed choral pieces, as church organist of the St Peters Church, Ake, Abeokuta, embodying the language and style of the Yoruba people. His work was so recognised that he was invited to the United Kingdom in 1922 to record an album of these compositions on the Zonophone label. A total of 43 tracks were recorded and some of these became standards, such as ‘Egbe awon angeli’, ‘Oyigi yigi olorun wa’, ‘Jesu oba alaanu’. He was the first West African to record an album.

Ransome-Kuti (grand-father of Fela Anikulapo-Kuti) can thus be said to be the father of Nigerian gospel music, as far as the genre is defined as a fusion of Christian hymnal music and other genres. In this instance, African traditional music. Kuti’s work may have been original and distinct from the parallel evolution of gospel music in the USA.

The other influential personality in the growth of gospel music in the early 20th century was chorister and composer Ikoli Harcourt-Whyte, who was the first person to compose Christian Choral music in the Igbo language of South-eastern Nigeria. He began his experimentation with both forms in the 1930s and was inspired by his time as a patient at the Methodist Leprosy Colony, Uzuakoli in Eastern Nigeria. His compositions became, as with Ransome-Kuti before him, gospel standards in Igbo-land, totalling over 200. While he did not record an album, his compositions were recorded by the Choir of the Leprosy Colony, Uzuakoli, after his death in 1977. A second recording was done in the US by the St. Louis Missouri African Choir in 1999.
