In our commitment to fostering diversity in our radio lineup, we are delighted to introduce the “Beats Of The Motherland” radio show, hosted by our newest team member, Adeyomola. Immerse yourself in the captivating sounds of Afrobeat music, ranging from timeless classics to the latest hits, during this one-hour session of enchanting vibes.

Afrobeat and Afrobeats, while sharing similar-sounding names, represent distinct musical genres with unique characteristics. Afrobeat, pioneered by Fela Kuti in the late 1960s, is a genre that fuses traditional African rhythms with jazz, highlife, and funk, often featuring extended instrumental improvisations and socially conscious lyrics.

On the other hand, Afrobeats (note the “s” at the end) is a more contemporary and diverse genre that emerged in the 21st century. It encompasses a fusion of various African music styles, incorporating elements of hip-hop, dancehall, pop, and electronic music. Afrobeats is characterized by its upbeat tempo, infectious melodies, and its appeal to a younger, global audience.

In our radio show, “Beats Of The Motherland,” we strive to showcase the rich diversity of both Afrobeat and Afrobeats, offering listeners a curated experience that spans the historical roots of Afrobeat to the dynamic and evolving landscape of Afrobeats. Join us as we explore the vibrant tapestry of African music, embracing the legacy and contemporary expressions of these influential genres.

The show is currently a work in progress. Feel free to revisit this page later for updates on the scheduling of the first episode.
