Between Burna Boy And Wizkid, Who Is Closer To Fela In All-Time Afrobeat Ranking?

The greatness of Afro-beat can be traced down to the times of Fela Anikulapo Kuti, those days when Afro-beat was used to narrate the struggles and sufferings of Africa.

Fela exposed the world to the beauty of African music, therefore making Afro-beat one of the most sought-after sounds in the entire musical world.

Fortunately, Afrobeat didn’t die with Fela, different young artistes have fought so hard to continue the legacy of Afrobeat and make it occupy a very large space in the music industry.

So far so good, Burna Boy and Wizkid have been the most successful Afro-beat singers. Shutting down big international stages, selling platinum in European countries to the point of claiming the most prestigious international award is a big win for Afro-beat.

Wizkid and Burna Boy got their first Grammy award respectively last year and they have since been the major face of Afrobeat that most international artist wants to work with.

Despite the success of these young musicians, it is not contestable that Fela still remains the Afrobeat greatest of all times because his name still rings a serious bell in the international scene as the father of Afrobeat.

You will recall that even Nigerian actor and comedian, Woli Arole confirmed how big Fela still remains abroad despite Wizkid and Burna Boy’s winnings.

However, if the whole world has agreed that Fela is the Greatest Afrobeat Act Of All Time, what is still yet to be agreed on is the artiste close to him in the ranking of Afrobeat Greatest.
