DIVERSITY OF AFRICAN MUSIC (3 Examples)

Hey, just wanted to drop a quick post for the un-initiated ‘NOT ALL AFRICAN MUSIC ARTISTES  PLAY OR PERFORM AFROBEATS, AFROHOUSE {aka SouthAfrican House)’ or similar rhythms loosely based on those two genre’s. Just recently noticed the wrong assumption from some who seem to think this way so this is a two-pronged post to ‘dispel that myth’ & also at the same time ‘introduce & show 3 different Artistes with varying individual styles who are definitely not classed as Afrobeats or Afrohouse. They might be influenced by the Genre & even sample bits of it but not your typical Afrobeat Sound.

Get to know them & hopefully you enjoy their offering:
