Meaning of AFROBEATS
AFROBEATS is a type of music in the richest continent on earth, am talking of Africa, it’s further split down to be the coming together of TRADITIONAL Ghanian, Nigerian, Jazz, Highlife, and spoken Lyrics added or blended with percussion and vocal styles, it started having a strong root in africa in about 1970.
The creator of this super cool sound is no other person than our one and only Fela kuti
Fela Kuti, this super creative music lord, invented AFROBEATS in the year 1968. Now check out what so many who use it might not know.
he invented afrobeats due to his dislike for american star james brown(late)
It didn’t just end there, he also invented AFROBEATS so as to distinguish himself from James(lol. he really hated that guy, see how hatred can make you creative? my brother I advise you to take hold of someone and hate the person, you might create afroDRE)
Fela used Afrobeats to speak truth, just like somebody in Nigeria is still doing Afrobeat features chants, call-and-response vocals, and complex, interacting rhythms.
