Akon, a Senegalese-American singer, has discussed the traits and influences that distinguish the top Nigerian Afrobeats musicians from other performers in the genre.
He mentioned Burna Boy, Wizkid, and Davido as the three largest Afrobeats artists who came to the top because to their distinctive abilities and hard work.
The billionaire expressed his admiration for Burna Boy’s current movement during an interview with American media personality Sway Calloway that aired on Sirius XM Satellite Radio.
He calls Burna a “beast” who is currently ruling the scene in part because of the guy who is endorsing him.
Akon also talked about Wizkid being a natural superstar who could release just one song in an entire year and that track would continue to be relevant and popular throughout the year.
Further more, he said Davido is the hardest working artiste among the bunch because when he came on the scene, he was the underdog so he had to prove himself.
Akon explained that OBO was able to secure a spot for himself with the help of his parents which he used to release records back to back at short intervals.
He said the DMW bpss prioritized quantity over quality and it worked for him as opposed to his counterparts who used other strategies to succees.
The Konvict Music founder also spoke on Banku crooner, Mr Eazi, whom he said is intelligent, but he sees as more of a businessman than an artiste.
