Why I Call My Music Afrofusion — Mayorkun


Nigerian music sensation Mayorkun has shed light on why he categorizes his music under the genre ‘Afrofusion’.

On the Big Friday Show with reality star Tacha, the artiste, whose real name is Adewale Mayowa Emmanuel, revealed that he has consistently referred to his music as Afrofusion in past interviews.

Mayorkun clarified that he chose the term ‘Afrofusion’ because he believes he can make any kind of song.

He mentioned that he added Afro because his music possesses an inherent African essence and he incorporates diverse influences and flavours into his music, which can range from reggae to other genres.

“If you check my interviews from way back, I’ve been saying Afrofusion. The reason why I always say that is because I believe that I can make any kind of song.

“But, I’m adding Afro to it, I’m naturally an African and there’s nothing that I’m doing here that is not Afro.

“It’s just infusing different flavours – it could be reggae or anything. That’s why I called it Afrofusion,” he said.
