Third World the group toured Nigeria many decades ago. A versatile band that captured the essence of Nigeria of those days with this song "Lagos Jump."

The band supported the Jacksons, and toured with the Wailers at the beginning of their career. Their 1977 album "96 Degrees in the Shade" had a few hits on it and struck a chord with Nigerian Music lovers (who were just recovering from FESTAC). 

Third World were more fusion oriented than most bands and this probably contributed to their longevity. As far as I'm aware, they are still performing.

I'm posting this because I just found out today that the lead singer William "Bunny Rugs" Clarke is ill
and I hope he recovers very soon.

After FESTAC i.e. The World Black Arts Festival in the 70's, an occasion that brought to Nigeria, some of the most talented acts of that era. Third World came to Africa on tour and rocked our socks off. They memorialised the tour with the track "Lagos Jump."

Grateful thanks to Kuku Live for jogging my memory!
