Afrobeat star, David Adeleke aka Davido, has said that Fela Kuti is the real originator of Afrobeat.
Davido revealed this in an interview on REAL 92.3 FM, which went viral on Tuesday.
The ‘Unavailable’ crooner went on to say that Afrobeat is a kind of African music sound, which Kuti mostly did.
He said: “Fela Kuti is the real originator of Afrobeat. Afrobeat is a kind of African music. It is a certain kind of sound which was mostly done by Fela Kuti, a legend. And one of the first countries to acknowledge new-generation African music was London.
“There was an article that was done in one of the big newspapers because I think there was like a wave of African music in London, so the caption said, ‘Afrobeat here to stay or just a wave’. After that, they just categorised everything under Afrobeat.”
HE OBVIOUSLY LACKS THE KNOWLEDGE OF AND DEVOID OF FULL GRASP OF THE ORIGINATION OF THE MUSIC, Afrobeat.
