Beyond merely being a slogan, the phrase ‘’Afrobeats to the world” has constantly been brought to life, as African singers from all corners give more and more flesh to its meaning.
Adding to the feats in this sphere, the song ‘Sade’ by Nigerian-Ghanaian New York based Singer, Akeju featuring Afro R & B Tome triggered massive positive reviews to its credit; ever since its release on Valentine’s day, February 14th, 2020.
“Baby go down
Go down Sade
You getiii class”
Like wildfire, the global reach of the ‘not-so-fast’ yet danceable song “Sade” was further spread on the New York City Times Square Billboard, reaching out to millions of International audiences celebrating its timely release in the very season of love.
Before this major breakthrough, Akeju who born in Ghana to Nigerian parents never ceased to keep to his roots whilst his stay in New York.
The release of his previous songs- “Emotions” feat Lil Scrappy, Omoge, Kiss and Tell amongst others are reflections of his strong representation of African music regardless of their productions in a foreign land.
The duet by Akeju and Tome, a Canadian born Nigerian Singer is one that has further raised the Afrobeats flag to the world.
The song, “Sade” came with a unique video which didn’t give any scene of the the two singers involved, yet, displayed a flow strong enough to keep viewers listening to its beats. The song video featured three beautiful Black ladies giving back to back dance steps of our very own African vibes, from Zanku to legwork and all the grooves of ‘the moment’.
Indeed, time and again, music has become one of the veritable tools used in promoting the African Image in a positive light to the world and Akeju’s light up at New York Times Square Billboard wasn’t an exception to this.
At Afrobeats360, we look forward to more and more African talents flying this flag!
Promoting our very own dance
And our lives as a people.
