African Music Stars Tipped For Big Things In 2022 And Beyond

African Music Stars Tipped For Big Things In 2022 And Beyond.

African music is on the up globally, from artists like Burna Boy, whose music is described as afro-fusion, a genre that blends afrobeats, dancehall, reggae, American rap and R&B, to other popular options at the moment, such as Mavin. On the whole, music from the continent of Africa is booming.

One of the main reasons why this type of music is thriving in a number of foreign territories is due to the exposure platforms like Spotify provide to the genre. Thanks to the emergence of sophisticated smartphones, people aren’t just updating social media statuses and accessing a real money online casino Canada platform for gaming. Alongside this, they’re able to search through an extensive catalog of tracks and access some of Africa’s finest artists. Artists like the before mentioned Burna Boy have registered big success in countries such as America and the UK also, therefore helping to shine more of a light on this growing music scene in the process.

In 2022 and beyond, a number of African music stars are being tipped to follow in Burna Boy’s footsteps and further elevate African music. While there are plenty of talented individuals who deserve a place on the list, let’s assess five names in the frame below.

Elaine

Offering a soothing R&B sound through a number of memorable tunes, Elaine is South Africa’s rising star. The 21-year-old has a golden voice that is capable of winning over the most diehard of R&B fans, especially thanks to popular releases like ‘You’re the One’. Elaine’s growth was perhaps best summed up when US label, Columbia, snapped her up in 2021. Her hypnotic voice is expected to gain further exposure in the coming months.

Omah Lay

A music-maker with plenty of talent, Omah Lay is a Nigerian singer and songwriter who managed to hit the mainstream after the release of his song, ‘Bad Influence’. A silky smooth voice with a welcome dose of afrobeats, afrofusion, and soul, Omah Lay is an artist who could easily become a global name in the near future. With a dedicated and loyal fanbase behind him, Lay’s appeal could spread to new audiences soon.

Sha Sha

Sha Sha provides a soulful sound that is capable of relaxing you during the most stressful of days. Her strong voice particularly shines on amapiano sounds, something that enables the Zimbabwean-born South African singer from Mutare to stand out from the crowd. In 2020, she was named as one of the top 10 most streamed female artists on Spotify in South Africa. Last year, she also won Best New International Act at the BET Awards. Sha Sha is definitely an artist to keep an eye on.

Ayra Starr

A name Nigerian music fans have been raving about for a while now, Ayra Starr is one of Nigeria’s shining lights. Offering an abundance of charm and attitude, the 19-year-old singer has grown from a social media creator to a recognized artist, especially when she signed to Mavin Records in 2020 after Don Jazzy discovered her on Instagram. Since then, Ayra Starr hasn’t looked back, with ‘Bloody Samaritan’ and ‘19 & Dangerous’ being worthy of a listen if you haven’t done so already. Ayra Starr is certainly one to watch in 2022 and beyond.

KiDi

While KiDi’s sound might not appeal to everyone, there is no doubting that his name is certainly spreading. The talented artist from Ghana rose to prominence after winning Album of the Year at the 2020 Ghana Music Awards. Offering afrobeats and highlife to create a feast for the ears, KiDi’s excellence is evident. Even American singer, Teddy Riley, has worked with the Ghanian artist.

Kid Cudi Says It Would Take A "Miracle" For Him & Kanye West To Be Friends Again

Kid Cudi Says It Would Take A “Miracle” For Him & Kanye West To Be Friends Again.

Kid Cudi says that it would take a “miracle’ for him to mend his friendship with Kanye West. Contrasting his beef with Ye to that of Drake’s, Cudi explained in a new interview with Esquire that he won’t be making amends anytime soon.

The Man on the Moon rapper explained:  “With all due respect, I’m not Drake, who’s about to take a picture with him next week and be friends again, and their beef is squashed. That’s not me. What I say, I mean. I will be done with you. It’s gonna take a motherfucking miracle for me and that man to be friends again. I don’t see it happening. He gon’ have to become a monk.”

“The twisted thing is that I love him, but I love you so much that I can kick you the fuck out of my life and be done with your ass. ’Cause you are not good for me,” he said, before quoting philosopher Samantha Jones. “I love myself more. I love myself more.”

“I didn’t love myself all them years you knew me,” he continued. “I love myself more now, bro. I love myself way more.”

While the two artists were once longtime friends and frequent collaborators, earlier this year, Cudi found himself pulled into West’s drama with his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, and her then-boyfriend, Pete Davidson. Things escalated when Cudi replaced West as the headliner at Rolling Loud, which resulted in fans throwing objects at Cudi throughout his performance until he stormed off stage. West later trolled Cudi over the incident on social media.

Elsewhere in the interview, Cudi reflects on aging in hip hop, his final conversation with the late Virgil Abloh, going to therapy, and more. Cudi’s next album, Entergalactic, is due out later this year.
