Ghanaian music producer Beatz Vampire is against the notion that Afrobeats belongs exclusively to Nigeria.
He highlighted in an interview with Amansan Krakye on Property FM in Cape Coast that the genre’s success is the result of collaborative efforts by artists and producers from various African nations.
While Nigerian artists have been pivotal in Afrobeats’ global rise over the past decade, Beatz Vampire pointed out that other African countries, including Ghana, have made substantial contributions to the genre.
He mentioned notable figures like Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale, and artists from across the continent who have played crucial roles in shaping the genre’s sound.
Beatz Vampire explained that Afrobeats isn’t exclusive to Nigeria. He said it represents a fusion of diverse African musical elements, reflecting the continent’s rich musical tapestry.
Beatz Vampire emphasized that his intent is not to diminish Nigeria’s contributions to Afrobeats but to stress that the genre draws inspiration from various African music traditions.
He acknowledged Nigeria’s substantial investment in the genre, encompassing production and marketing, which has led to the perception that Afrobeats is solely Nigerian music.
In essence, Beatz Vampire advocates for a broader recognition of Afrobeats as a pan-African musical movement. He stated that, that will acknowledge the collective efforts that have fueled its ascent to global prominence.
