The term “Afrobeats” is an insult – Ade Bantu | WATCH



Veteran Nigerian artist and lead singer for music band BANTU, Ade Bantu in a recent interview with Hip TV stated that the term “Afrobeats” with the “s” is very insulting. He revealed that Nigerian music used to be termed “Nigerian Pop” and that “afrobeats” in a creation of a “crazy, ignorant person in Europe“.

He also spoke about the recent decline of the culture of making albums in Nigeria. He noted that artists nowadays try to get that single hit song and when they eventually do, want to build up on it resulting in repeating the same sound over and over again.

    don’t mind them lazy people. “afrobeats” is a lazy term! and this current naija pop need to show some respect for the afrobeat pantheon by rejecting that “afrobeats” term. i agree with ade. don’t let outsiders define you and yours! welcome other perspectives but do not let others define you, period! respect!
