The money mogul labeled Burna Boy and Rema as the new phase of Afrobeat growth.

While sharing his views with the public during his recent presentation, he highlighted that he has been impressed so far with the new phase of the Afrobeat Genre, which he identified as Burna Boy and Rema.

According to him, his daughter inspired him to explore Burna Boy and Rema just after she learned that she would be visiting Nigeria, “the giant of Africa”.

He added that he was a bit surprised to discover the new phase of Burna Boy and Rema because the last time he visited Nigeria, he was entertained by Davido and Wizkid, who were the hottest Afrobeat gems at that time.

His words:

“When my daughter Phoebe heard I was coming to Nigeria, she said, ‘You’re lucky because you get to see Burna Boy and Rema, so I had to look them up…because I’m so ‘hip’.’

“But I remember the last time I was here, I got to see Davido & Wizkid perform.”

In connection to Davido’s previous ‘New Cats’ plea, Nigerians were quick to admit that the ‘If’ crooner was not lying when he identified Burna Boy and Rema as Afrobeat ‘New Cats’.
