Who is the NEW King of Afrobeats in Africa
Wikipedia defines Afrobeat as; “a music genre which developed in the 1970s when African musicians began combining elements of West African musical styles such as jùjú music and highlife with American funk and jazz influences, with a focus on chanted vocals, complex intersecting rhythms, and percussion.”
In Nigeria, Afrobeat cultures are mostly seen in African Musicians with the likes of Femi Kuti, Wizkid, yemi Alade, Mafikizolo, Burna Boy, Chidinma, Flavour etc..

Afrobeat is the African culture and in Africa it’s been transformed and refined in a way in which we enjoy it the most, you wouldn’t say a song is afro when you’ve not heard the sound of any of these instruments; Bass guitar, congas, drums, guitar, horns, keyboard, percussion, flute, saxophone, shekere, vocals etc.
The Afrobeat culture is a trademark for African Music, the ability for the melody to forcefully make you to shift and shake your body when you listen is ironic. This culture is best practiced in Nigeria. Most of the biggest Afrobeat Singers/Producers are from Nigeria.
Some Music Producers too such as Krizbeatz, Maleek Berry, Masterkraft, Killertunes, etc.. are very superb in production of Afrobeat music. You can’t talk of Afrobeats without the producers and instrumentalists, they are the real creators of Afro music.
