Music can be used to pass different messages across. With Afrobeats, the crooners add various elements and slang to make it even more relatable to Africans. These slangs are part of what has made the genre go global. With the new releases this week, we saw Afrobeats artists bring back Nigerian slang from way back, striking up good memories in listeners.
