Afrobeats have been popularized around the world by Nigerian musicians Wizkid, Davido, and Burna Boy, according to American singer Akon.
The three giants are transforming Nigerian music, according to Akon in an interview with renowned American radio DJ Sway.
Wizkid was referred to by the singer as a Superstar and a born star.
Wizkid is the biggest name in the industry and, in his eyes, the embodiment of Afrobeat.
Wizkid is one of those artists, he said, who releases one tune year that remains on the charts for the entire year.
“Wizkid is probably the poster child of Afrobeat and he is the biggest name”.
He added, “Wizkid is just a superstar, he is one of those guys that put up one record a year and the record last a whole year. He is a born star without a doubt”.
On Davido, he described him as the workaholic. For him, Davido is an underdog that fought hard to be where he is, though he had the support of his wealthy family.
“Davido is the hardest working. He was the underdog but what he has as support was his wealthy family, so he was able to come out every week with a new song and new video. He got more song than any Afrobeat artiste”.
Lastly, speaking about African giant, Burna Boy, Akon described him as he beast.
He said, “Burna Boy us a beast, he’s representing the culture on a level it needs to be represented on”.
Afrobeats heavyweights Wizkid, Burna Boy, and Davido were asked to go on a joint world tour by Tunji Balogun, also known as TeeBillz.
He pleaded with the trio, referring to them as the Afrobeats ambassadors, to travel the world and establish Afrobeats as the legitimate genre.
“Fuck the egos my brodies! God blessed y’all as Afrobeats ambassadors for a reason! It’s time to tour the world together in every stadium around the globe and stamp afrobeats as genre for real! @burnaboygram @davido @wizkidayo shout out to the pioneers. @official2baba @peterpsquare @iamkingrudy @iambangalee @donjazzy can you imagine am afrobeats world tour with our Queens too @tiwasavage @yemialade and @symplysimi may God so help me to make it happen.
