Afrobeats is a genre of music that originated in Nigeria in the 1980s. It is a fusion of West African music styles, such as highlife, soukous, and Afrobeat, with American hip hop and R&B. Afrobeats has become increasingly popular in recent years, and is now one of the most popular genres of music in the world.
