Welcome back to Don't Alert The Stans!
For this week’s episode, the boys are joined by Joey Akan, one of the leading voices covering contemporary African music. A journalist, writer and media consultant, Joey is the Founder/CEO of Afrobeats Intelligence.
As there is no news agenda this week, the boys dedicate the lion share of this week’s episode to an in-depth interview with Joey where they discuss the milestones and watershed moments that led to Afrobeats current renaissance.
Elsewhere they muse on the influence and impact of US/UK artists borrowing from African music on African nations itself, the perception of lesser known and lesser acclaimed African genres like alte, gqom, highlife and juju and much more!
