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, as Adama Munu explains. TRT World also spoke to the late musician Fela Kuti's son for his take on the new movement.
