My style of music is Afro fusion, not Afro beats – Burna Boy

Nigerian musician Burna Boy has stated that his style of music is called Afrofusion, and not Afrobeats.

The Grammy Award musician spoke about his genre of music during the latest episode of The Million Dollar Worth of Game podcast.

Speaking on why he calls it Afrofusion, Burna stated that he decided to call his style of music Afrofusion because it’s a fusion of everything and the Afro-Africaness is the thing that covers it.

Burna boy said Africa has so many genres of music, adding that generalising it all as Afrobeats is a “disservice to other artists” in other genres.

“For me, it’s like the same way you’re going to say Nas is an R&B singer because he’s from America or Whitney Houston was a rapper because rap is the most popping thing now,” he said.

“I can’t accept that because I’m not a rapper. So now in Africa when you talk about music, the first thing they say is Afrobeats. Afrobeats is a legend called Fela Kuti.
