Afrobeats is a dynamic and modern genre that originated in West Africa, particularly in Nigeria and Ghana. This fusion genre combines elements of Afrobeat, highlife, hip-hop, Funk, and various African and Western musical styles, resulting in an energetic and captivating sound that has taken the world by storm.

Afrobeat, the precursor to Afrobeats, emerged in Nigeria during the 1960s and 1970s, pioneered by the legendary musician Fela Kuti. It blends traditional Nigerian music, highlife, jazz, and funk, characterized by complex rhythmic patterns, horn sections, and socially conscious lyrics.

Afrobeat falls under the broader category of Afro-pop or world music, setting the stage for the contemporary Afrobeats movement. You can read this article to understand the differences between Afrobeat and Afrobeats,
