Highlife experienced a significant transformation after its acceptance in Nigeria. Syncopated (displaced-accent) guitar melodies were combined with asymmetrical drum rhythms from traditional Yoruba drumming techniques to accompany songs sung either in Yoruba or English.
Igbo highlife musicians were also at the forefront of these transformations. They gave highlife a distinct sound with the acoustic blending of vocals with rich instrumentation like ogene, ichaka, and oja, as well as guitar or piano.
