Burna Boy, a Grammy-winning singer from Nigeria, claims that he invented the afrofusion musical subgenre because he didn’t want to be limited to the well-known afrobeats subgenre.
The self-described “African Giant” claimed he does not believe in genres in an interview with American media source Complex.
“Afrofusion is a big melting pot of cultures and sounds,” stated Burna Boy. There is no box for afrofusion.
“Let me explain. I created afro-fusion because I didn’t want to be restricted to any type of afrobeats, hip-hop, or anything else. since I don’t think in genres. I was forced to make my own.
Burna Boy reportedly said lately that afrobeats is “literally nothing” and lacks lyrical depth, as reported by 460play.
