The Amalgamation of African Music with Hip hop…

So for a long time, I have been a bystander in the world of music and I am consistently baffled at how quickly African music is merging with the West.  We have heard from the beginning of the millennial  that the world is a global village and with Facebook(maybe we believe this).  We just underestimated the convergence of  ideas, movement and thoughts, take for instance the #Alingo dance from Ghana that took Europe by storm. We completely overlooked  the cross Atlantic movement of entertainment or did we? So when, #Drake dropped his newest material “Ojuelegba” featuring MC Skepta (his new best friend from London) and Naija’s very own #Wizkid – most people were like we didnt see it coming!  Abeg how could we not, #Akon did “chop my money” with P-Square, #D’Banj  remixed Mr Endowed  with his lost but found  found uncle #Snoop . So whats-up with #Ojuelegba? Picture the hottest vocals in the industry lending strong vocals to the  stimulating Afropop beat  and Drake doing what he know best- being Drake?  Never mind here is what it sounds like(Click the link)- “Ojuelegba”
