Carol Jiani is a UK based Nigerian recording artist. In 1980 Carol Jiani recorded two Sandy Wilbur-written pieces with La Greca, “Hit ‘N Run Lover” and “All The People of the World“. “Hit ‘N Run Lover” was remixed by San Francisco-based Moby Dick Records for their Gold Standard imprint and would become Jiani’s signature song, peaking at number 4 on the US Billboard Club Play Singles chart in 1981.
On the heels of “Hit N Run Lover”‘s success, Matra Records commissioned a complete album, also titled Hit ‘N Run Lover. “The Woman in Me” was the album’s second single but its B-side, the uptempo “Mercy”, written by Pete Bellotte and Sylvester Levay which featured off-key horns, exceeded the A-side in popularity among DJs becoming another hit for Jiani. “Mercy“, the only track on the album not composed by Sandy Wilbur, was recorded earlier by Judy Cheeks.[4[5 A follow-up album, Ask Me was released the next year generating the singles “Ask Me”, “X-Rated” and “You’re Gonna Lose My Love“. In 1982, Jiani recorded vocals for “Get Up and Do It Again”. The song was a hit

CAROL JIANI “OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT IN MUSIC.
Afrobeat is a combination of traditional Nigerian and Ghanaian music, jazz, highlife, funk, and chanted vocals, fused with percussion and vocal styles, popularised in Africa in the 1970s. Its main creator was the Nigerian multi-instrumentalist and band leader Fela Kuti, who gave it its name, who used it to revolutionize musical structure as well as the political context in his native Nigeria. It was Kuti who coined the term “afrobeat” upon his return from a U.S. tour with his group Nigeria ’70 (formerly Koola Lobitos). Afrobeat features chants, call-and-response vocals, and complex, interacting rhythms.
We are living in very difficult times and our people love to dance and forget their problems especially the youth.
Africa has a serious lack of healthcare facilities in rural areas.I want to secure more medical mobile clinics for HIV TESTING.
The statistics are staggering. It is estimated that three-quarters of the World Aids Population lives in Sub – Saharan Africa.Most have no access to lifesaving drugs,testing facilities or even basic preventative healthcare.
As a Recording Artist in the public eye i want to do my best and make sure that all deserve a prolonged life.

Popular dancer, Kemi Omotoyinbo dies during child birth.
The late choreographer, who danced for several popular musicians including Pasuma, KWAM 1 and Shina Peters, died during childbirth in a private hospital in Lagos on October 1, exactly 20 days after her wedding to husband, Godwin Eloanyi,
Her husband, Godwin Eloanyi took her to a private hospital where she was in and out of labour for several days.
When it was certain that it wasn’t possible for her to have a natural childbirth, the doctors informed her that she’ll be undergoing a Cesarean Section but the operation would cost N450k.
Then they demanded an initial deposit of N300k before the commencement of the operation.
Her husband couldn’t raise the money immediately so he begged the hospital to carry on with the operation that he would pay the next day (October 1st). But they refused!
Sadly, Kemi passed away on the night of Independence Day. He died exactly 20 days after her wedding, which was on September 13th.
Here’s an eye witness account of one of Kemi’s friends:
“Kemi wouldn’t have died if the doctors did pay attention to her. She was in labour for several days and was asked to pay certain amount of money before she could be operated upon. The truth is that Kemi was in labour for over one week. She tried in vain to give birth the normal way but the baby just didn’t come.
Eventually the doctor told her she would have to go through C&S. It was termed emergency C&S. The hospital told her husband that they would have to pay a sum of 450,000 for her to be operated upon. He also said that before anything could be done they would have to make a deposit of 300,000. The husband made several efforts to raise 300,000 but deposited all he had. He begged the doctors to please go ahead with the operation and would pay before the next day. That was on October 1st , the night she died.”
“Kemi’s husband said he would pay the money the next day but the doctor refused and stated categorically that he would not move an inch, unless he pays 300,000. It was at that point Kemi decided to forward messages to people she knows so she could get help. She got responses that money would be made available to her the next day. On hearing that the husband went to beg the doctors again, still they refused. No bank was opened and nothing could be done until Thursday, October 2nd but unfortunately she gave up the ghost that night. My point is, the doctors knew she had to go through emergency C&S. They could have saved her life and get the money later. Nigeria is a very bad country I must confess.” one of her friends said.
