Why I created afro-fusion genre – Burna Boy
In order to avoid being pigeonholed into the well-known West African genre known as afrobeats, Grammy-winning Nigerian singer Damini Ogulu, better known by his stage name Burna Boy, claims to have invented a new musical style known as afrofusion.
The self-described "African Giant" asserted that he does not believe in genres in an interview with the American media outlet Complex.
Burna Boy said, “Afrofusion is a big melting pot of cultures and sounds. Afrofusion is not a box.
“Let me break it down: why I created afro-fusion is because I didn’t want to be boxed into any afrobeats, hip-hop, or anything. Because I don’t believe in genres. I had to create my own.”
Naijacrawl recalls that Burna Boy recently asserted that afrobeats are “literally nothing” and lack lyrical substance.
