Afrobeats is nothing, lacks substance — Burna Boy Says

Afrobeats, according to Grammy award-winning artist Burna Boy, lacks substance and is essentially ‘nothing.’

The artist expressed his view that around 90% of Afrobeats songs don’t delve into real-life experiences, instead focusing on creating an enjoyable atmosphere that doesn’t reflect the complexity of life.

Burna Boy, known as the African Giant, shared these thoughts during a recent interview on Apple Music.

He argued that much of the music lacks genuine experiences that listeners can relate to, leading to a situation where many Nigerian and African songs prioritize entertainment over meaningful content.

This viewpoint has triggered varied responses on social media, with some agreeing and others critiquing his perspective as arrogant.
