The Rise of Afrobeats

Hiplife, juju music, highlife, Naija beats. Mean anything to you? If those words resonate, you're probably a fan of Afrobeats-  contemporary West African pop that's becoming increasingly mainstream in Europe and North America. Recently, Burna Boy became the first Nigerian to win a Grammy for Best Global Music Album as a solo artist. There are plenty of others to watch out for. TRT World also spoke to the late musician Fela Kuti's son for his take on the new movement.
