Multifaceted Nigerian musical artist, Olofin Sniper born Olofinjana Ademola has described African music as music of great potential. He said African music is classic and one of the most wanted music worldwide.
In a recent interview the singer said the continent is the future hub of music and emerging talents.
“African music is pure classic and the most wanted and loved brand of music worldwide. I like the energy behind African music, It seems to be driven out of love. First, I think African music will continue to blossom and spread into other regions because it is universal, even if you can’t understand the dialect or language. It is harmonious, pure, for the most part, true. With collaborations it’s going to be interesting to see how far and wide it spreads in the US. It’s making its stride into pop culture, more and more by the day with people like Kanye West replaying Davido’s music during his Sunday Service, Cardi B being on a Davido’s song, Megan The Stallion appearing onstage with him, and now, a potential record with Nicki Minaj. It’s obvious,” she said
Obviously, African music with Nigerian Afrobeats leading the way has found itself into the core of the po culture of the United States of America. From the way Puffy (or Diddy) embraced Burna Boy on his Instagram Live, and how Naomi Campbell speaks about the music from that region, Africa, Nigeria in particular has arrived on the world stage.
“I believe it is only a matter of time before it makes it way to other genres/markets. And I think the better unification among African music stars is rooted in the way of life of the people and their culture,” He added
Olofin Sniper also affirmed that Afrobeat, a Nigerian genre of music that has found acceptance across the globe is leading the charge. He said the genre has made a huge impression on the world stage
“ Afrobeat and Afrobeats . Right now, I think Afrobeats is the most accepted African music genre in the world because it’s reaching across demographics of young and old. Nigerian music industry is still cool but they need unity,” he said.
Olofin Sniper began music in 2015 back in school as a part of a band. He has since gone on to release 6 singles to stamp his feet on the landscape.
