Afro Beats has slowly, but very persistently, been climbing the international charts for a few years now. Artist like Kidi, Davido and others have broken through to the main stream audience and are now played in clubs on the global sense. While it's hard to determine if this will become a normal occurrence, I will say they've made a lasting impression.
The sound is almost a blend of today's R&B and Island Caribbean Calypso. It is both relaxing and somehow inspires you to dance. When I hear this style in the clubs, I find myself drifting away to a warmer welcoming place of contentment and solace. I for one, hope AfroBeats will continue its expansion to finally receive the recognition it desires. Here is Kidi's Remix of "Odo" featuring Davido and Mayorkun. Hope you enjoy it.
