An angry tweep identified as Daniel Regha has blasted critics who made a mockery of pioneers of Afrobeats music after the recent 'mindblowing' achievements of Nigerian singers, Tems and Ckay.
It is no news that Ckay and Tems are currently leading an array of international afrobeat heavyweights like Davido, Burnaboy, Wizkid and Tiwa Savage on streaming platforms like Spotify and Audiomack.
Recall that recently Ckay’s single, ‘Love Nwatiti’ kept topping the chart as the monster hit debuted at no. 80 in the Billboard Hot 100 on the 27th of September 2021.
This recent development has caused netizens to conclude that the reigns of the likes of Davido, Olamide and Wizkid are quick 'fading out' as they also argued over who pushed afrobeats genre to the mainstream.
Regha, weighing into the conversation, blasted those with such 'porous' mindsets as he posited that Davido, Olamide, Wizkid, Tiwa Savage are the pioneers of afrobeats who paved way for the likes of Ckay and Tems.
"Ckay, Tems plus other Upcoming Artistes are breaking records cos Davido, Olamide, Wizkid, Tiwa Savage & Many more before them pushed the afrobeats to the mainstream.
"Hype these upcomers without disrespecting iconic Artistes cos their impact paved a way for these upcomers, tweet smart," he said.
