Grammy-winning Nigerian singer, Damini Ogulu aka Burna Boy has said he created Afro-fusion genre because he doesn’t want to be limited by the popular West African genre, afrobeats.
He said this in an interview with American media outlet, Complex.
Burna Boy said, “Afrofusion is a big melting pot of cultures and sounds. Afrofusion is not a box.
“Let me break it down, why I created afro-fusion is because I didn’t want to be boxed into any afrobeats or hip-hop or anything. Because I don’t believe in genres. I had to create my own.”
Recall that Burna Boy recently asserted that afrobeats is “literally nothing” and lacks lyrical substance.
