Nigerian popular music producer, Samuel Oguachuba, famously called Samklef has claimed that he and grammy award winning singer, Ayodeji ”Wizkid” Balogun created Afrobeats.
The 36-year-old ”Molowo Noni” crooner made this claim through his official Twitter (X) account on Monday, September 11, 2023.
Samklef shared a throwback video of himself with Wizkid and wrote: “Meet the Nigerian two kids that created the afrobeats sound of today. As of 2009, Nigerian music had no title! Until these two created magic! 2010!”
Even the award categories in Nigeria were Best Hip Hop, Best R and B, Best Alternative Music and Best Reggae! There was nothing like Best Afrobeats! It was Wizkidayo who named it afrobeats! Know this and know peace! Fela created Afrobeat!”
