Craze For Afrobeats

In between the past and present is Da Future. The craze for Afrobeats is on an all time high and we caught up with one of the leaders of this sound. Godwill Ngwanah who goes by the name Willbeatz is an american based Music producer, of African decent, who has pioneered and coined the sound of Afrobeats to a commercial comfort zone for the music industry. Before the surge of afrobeats influenced billboard charting hits, the DC native had moulded the sound and created monsters for superstar act, Olamide and countless up and coming artists. Willbeatz caught our attention recently after the release of his mixtape, which he titled Da Future. The uniquely gifted maestro coined all the sounds on the project, playing every single instruments on it and mixed and mastered it himself. The body of work is filled with distinct afrobeats songs broken down into various sub genres like afropop, afrotrap, and afrofusion. There was definitely hints of tropical vibes in the mix as well.

Willbeatz is no stranger to the big leagues as he's worked with major acts such as Tory Lanez, Missy Elliott, and afrobeats acts like Olamide and Sarkodie. With upcoming major projects in his arsenal, we can only wait to see what he's got next up his sleeves.

We would surely be keeping your eyes and ears out for this magical fingers.
