Wizkid’s ‘Essence’ introduced Afrobeats to the world – Blaqbonez

Blaqbonez, a popular Nigerian rapper, has remarked about Wizkid and Tems’ song ‘Essence’ and its effect on Afrobeats.

“Crazy things are happening right now for Afrobeats. More talented artists are coming up.”

Wizkid recently slammed Afrobeats, stating that he does not want to be trapped into a specific genre.
