Singer Yemi Alade has criticized her fellow artists for consistently downplaying the significance of the Afrobeat genre in the development of every artist.

She urged them to quietly establish their own if they didn’t want to be attached to the genre anymore.

Yemi on her X platform said it is not inappropriate for an artist to educate his followers about the genre of their music but rather hypocritical to dismiss the impact Afrobeat has had on the development of all musicians.

She blamed Nigerians for supporting artists who degrade themselves online instead of confronting the government about the country’s real issues.

She wrote: “I don’t see anything wrong in informing your listeners of the genre of music an artist makes especially when you feel it doesn’t define your art.
“Just announce your Genre in peace. Downplaying the role Afrobeats has played in every artist’s development is hypocrisy. Electricity Tariff& Fuel are at a 400% increase. Naira to $ is dancing alanta.

“The weather is unbearably hot. People are busy being wicked to 2each other with daily increases in prices. Salaries have not been increased. Afrobeat artists are making the mess& you’re picking sides instead of facing your government.”
