In a podcast interview with Noisey, the ‘Peru’ hitmaker explained that Afrobeats isn’t just a genre but a culture.

Nigerian singer, Fireboy DML has revealed that Afrobeats is on the same level as Hip-hop and R&B.
He stated this in a podcast interview with Noisey.
The ‘Peru’ hitmaker explained that Afrobeats isn’t just a genre but a culture and a movement with an incredible history.
Fireboy, however, said his own brand of Afrobeats is unique.
“I always say this, honesty is the soul of songwriting. It doesn’t have to be your story. It could be someone else’s story. It doesn’t matter. As long as it’s honest, when you put it out, someone somewhere is going to relate with it and that’s all that matters,” he said.

“That’s what I bring into my version of Afrobeats. Afrobeats is known for vibe, the energy and the rhythm. But I bring that intention, that songwriting feel. [I’m] Trying to put Afrobeats on the map. It’s just as big as Hip Hop & RnB if you let it. It’s a culture, it’s a movement. It has history. Now more than ever the world is paying attention.”
