ABOUT THE MUSIC
Identity- As a native of West Africa, the influence of both the original Afrobeat sound, as pioneered by Fela Kuti, and Afrobeats sound, as trending in West and Sub-Sahara Africa,give indentiy to the style.

  • The Hip Hop and R&B culture continue to also form a strong part of the musical identity since Bx grew up and continues to live in the DMV area and has also spent some
    crucial part of his life in southern United States.

Vision

Fused Contents- The vision is to not just ensure the fusion of Afrobeats and
