Discussing the idea behind this site centered around celebrating Afrobeats, Jocelyn Mohutu Remy, Spotify’s Managing Director for Sub-Saharan Africa revealed, There is no doubt that Afrobeats as a genre are here to stay, and will only continue to smash more ceilings. In 2023 alone, the genre has been played for over 223 million hours with streams of over 7.1 billion on Spotify. We have created this site for both new and old fans of the genre, who would like to get a better understanding of how and where this explosive sound came from.
