Afrobeats lacks substance and real-life experiences
2 days ago, Kemi Filani news reported that Burna boy had expressed his displeasure during an interview at the lack of substance in Afrobeat music.
He explained that most artists are more focused on having a good time and talking about their great life in their songs rather than focusing on real life situations.
“Not even experience, because half of them like 90% of them have no real-life experience that they can understand. That’s why you hear most Nigerian music, African Music or Afrobeats as you people call it, is mostly about nothing, absolutely nothing. There is no substance to it, like nobody is talking about anything, it’s just a great time. But at the end of the day, life isn’t an amazing time”.
