Captain Rugged is a multimedia graphic-novel collaboration between Nigerian musicians and artists Keziah Jones and Native Maqari that describes Nigeria's oil boom of the 1970s. The hero, Captain Rugged, was conceived by Jones as an embodiment of the Nigerians who flooded the city of Lagos in hopes of making a living, inadvertently bringing about an extreme population explosion and a soaring crime rate. It also led to a bizarre jumble of architectural styles and uncompleted buildings around the city. From Captain Rugged's birthplace in Makoko--an illegal water settlement on stilts within the Lagos lagoon--through the hectic bus stations of Obalende, this publication chronicles the hero's adventures through the city

Captain rugged by Keziah Jones( Recording )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Five years after 'Nigerian Wood,' Keziah Jones is back with his most personal and political project yet, wearing the outfit of an Afro superhero. That superhero is 'Captain Rugged,' his quirky and socially committed double! A graphic novel as well as long player, the album chronicles the Captain's adventures in Lagos. From his birth place in Makoko, the Nigerian slum version of Venice - an illegal water settlement on stilts with the Lagos region - through to the loud industry of the bus stations of Obalende. Nigerian, Afropolitan, universal, 'Captain Rugged' tells us about modern Africa and its urban movements. From his youth amongst the ghettos and skyscrapers of bustling Lagos, flying around in his ankara cape and shaking the city with his angry beats: "Here I come, an Afro Superhero, Captain Rugged," cries Keziah. His Afronewave echoes his rebellion: a concept album in the shape of a manifesto
