Michael Blackson Predicts Afrobeats Will Rival Hip-Hop’s Global Dominance

Comedian Michael Blackson has expressed strong confidence in the future of Afrobeats music, believing that the genre has the potential to become as influential as hip-hop, if not even bigger. His sentiments come in the wake of Afrobeats star Rema’s historic win at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) for “Best Afrobeats” song, thanks to his hit track “Calm Down” featuring Selena Gomez, which has amassed over a billion views in just one year.

Michael Blackson shared his thoughts during his participation at the Kids in Africa Afrikicks charitable event, organized by Oni Productions. The event celebrated Afrobeats’ rise to prominence and its positive impact on the global music scene.

The Nigerian-born comedian emphasized that Afrobeats carries an infectious and joyful spirit that resonates with audiences worldwide, making it impossible to ignore. He cited the collaborations between American artists like Drake and Chris Brown with Afrobeats stars like Wizkid and Davido as evidence of the genre’s growing appeal beyond its African roots.

In recent times, record labels have increasingly recognized the potential of Afrobeats, prioritizing the genre’s promotion and development. This newfound focus on Afrobeats suggests that it could rival, or even surpass, hip-hop’s longstanding global dominance in the music industry.

As Afrobeats continues to gain momentum and reach new audiences around the world, Michael Blackson’s prediction may indeed become a reality, reshaping the global music landscape for years to come.
