African China - Forgive Me Video From His Album "London Fever"

From: Romana Abiola

The first thing that stands out is his name: African China. Contrary to first assumptions there is no connection to China. His real name is Timothy Chinagorom Onuoha. African China is from the Igbo tribe in Nigeria and his Yoruba teacher was struggling to pronounce his name correctly so for simplicity's case started calling him 'China'. Later, when starting his music career and looking for a stage name, the 'African' was added. (There is also another way to read the name: African Children Have Ideas Natural for Africa.)

African China has been dubbed "the voice of the Nigerian masses" and from his lyrics, he represent the modern day Fela Kuti, who was well known for representing the poor masses of Nigeria, he also bagged the award as the best Reggae/dancehall act in Nigeria 2007, so he is the current king of dancehall from Nigeria.


No 1 dancehall act from Nigeria AFRICAN CHINA aka Chinagorom Onuoha brought out his first video from his new album "LONDON FEVER" currently making waves in the market. Watch it...
