Jade Matthews Catches Up With Afro B

Known for having her finger on the pulse of fresh music artists both in the UK and overseas, Jade Matthews is back with another special guest.

 

Sitting in the hotseat this week is non other than Afro B!

 

It's fair to say that Afro B has had a massive year this year,  with his single 'Juice and Power' featuring Yxng Bane bagging over 1.3 million views on YouTube since it's release.

 

 

 

Conjuring up his own sound, Afro B continues to confidently mix African pop, rap and dancehall together, joining the likes of Kojo Funds, J Hus and Yxng Bane in the new wave of an evergrowing popular music sweeping the internet.

 

The South London artist draws much influence from his Ivory Coast Heritage, creating his own lane with a diasporic blend of African influences old and new, charged with Caribbean dancehall/bashment, run through a prism of Anglo-American rap, trap, grime and R&B.

 

It’s a result of a DIY conversation between the UK and Africa, via the Caribbean, the US and Europe, where afro-trap is currently taking France by storm.

 

Afro B also recently curated the 'MOVES' compilation album – a guide to the UK Afrobeats sound featuring Belly Squad, Harlem Spartans, NSG, IRAY MVMT, Naira Marley and Mista Silva which was released in May.

 

Don't miss Jade Matthews catch up with Afro B this Saturday 15th July from 1-4pm
