“I’m still very pro-African and you can’t take that away from me,” she points out. “There’s nothing you can do to change that.” She said.The mum of one also weighed in on the confusion regarding the Afrobeats genre. Explaining that Fela, remains the true founder of Afrobeats.
“I don’t even know how it came about. I know Afrobeat is from Fela and the reason why I guess people wanted to start a new genre of Afropop was because a lot of the music we’re doing now is influenced by hip-hop, R&B and pop. You can’t really say it’s just Afrobeat, because Afrobeat has a sound. When you hear it, you now it’s Afrobeat. I think that’s where the argument is.”
