Popular Hip Hop artiste, Emeka Akumefule, otherwise called Blaqbonez, has claimed that Wizkid is the person who showcased Afrobeats to the rest of the world.

The ‘Best Rapper in Africa’ rapper said Afrobeats skyrocketed in popularity after Wizkid released the hit song, ‘Essence’ featuring Tems in 2020.

During a recent interview with American outlet KTLA, Blaqbonez said what the song did was to tell the world that the African music genre is something to watch out for.

He said: “Afrobeats took a massive leap when Wizkid dropped Essence and it went craazy. It just told the world Afrobeats is something you really have to watch. Craazy things are happening right now for Afrobeats. More talented artistes are coming up.”
