Davido Reveals Who Started Afrobeat Music (Video)

Afrobeat was actually invented by the late great artist Fela Anikulapo Kuti, according to Nigerian singer David Adeleke, aka Davido.

In a live interview with REAL 92.3 FM, Davido explained that Fela Kuti was the mastermind behind the Afrobeat music genre and that the sound of the genre began in Africa.

“Fela Kuti is the real originator of Afrobeat. Afrobeat is a kind of African music. It is a certain kind of sound which was mostly done by Fela Kuti, a legend. And one of the first countries to acknowledge new-generation African music was London.

“There was an article that was done in one of the big newspapers because I think there was like a wave of African music in London, so the caption said, ‘Afrobeat here to stay or just a wave’. After that, they just categorized everything under Afrobeat,” the 30-year-old award-winning artist said.

Davido said earlier in the interview that his passion for music once drove him to flee the $60 million home of his family and spend the night at a friend’s studio.

In the now-viral REAL 92.3 FM interview, Davido continued by saying that his father’s riches was originally thought to be the reason for his successful music career.

He said, “What was difficult for me was coming out from a wealthy background because people say his dad is in money, but they later agree that the boy is actually good after several records.

“People love the grass to grace and was down but now I’m up story, but I was never really been down bad.

“We had a $60 million house in Nigeria that I ran away from and was sleeping in my friend’s studio because I know they won’t let me out again once I get home.”
