Wear it bold and proud for AFROBEAT IS INDEED LIFE!!! But…. you already knew that! The music genre AFROBEAT (without the ‘s’) originated in the 60s in Nigeria by Fela Kuti and inspired this new wave of AFROBEATS by West African artist such as Burna Boy, Wizkid, Davido, Mr Eazi and so many more. While AFROBEATS tends to have more of a pop/rnb tone to it one cannot deny that Fela Kuti would be proud! The Lagos born musical genius and political activist, Ofela Olusegun Oludotun Ransome-Kuti took inspiration from African American blues, jazz and funk and merged it with traditional Yoruba music and his music lives on to this day.
There is something this music does to your soul, it brings you right to the motherland and connects you instantly… that is life.
