Given what most Westerners know about Nigeria's history, the title of this collection may seem odd, but in fact, it represents the beginning of a brief decade when things were finally shifting in the nation's favor. This was the beginning of the true post-colonial period for Nigeria, the Biafran war had come to an end, there was an oil boom offering disposable income to a larger portion of the population, and musicians were benefiting from an increase in the number of clubs to play in and the interest of both local and international major labels taking root on their soil. Add to this the innovations brought about by musicians themselves, many of whom who had traveled internationally. Strut has assembled a solid 13 tracks that signify the musical fruits of this period on Nigeria 70: Sweet Times. The music ranges from the sprightly, rocking highlife of "Life" by Moneyman & the Super 5 International
