Fast Rising Star ”Adeexy” Setting Trend With His New Unusual Afrobeats Sound

Fast Rising Star ”Adeexy” Setting Trend With His New Unusual Afrobeats Sound

Afro-beat is evolving into a more beautiful genre of music as new young talents emerge in the music industry.

Multi-talented artiste, Adeexy appears to be one of the new young talents setting a new standard for Afro-beat in Nigeria and across Africa.

 

As the name implies, Afro-beats, a genre of music that represents the sound and musical tune of Africa but it is saddening that many Nigerian artists who claim to be Afro-beat acts are doing music far from what is true-afrobeat.

Adeexy is one of the few Nigerian artiste that can boast of discography filled with true Afro-beat and sometimes as the spirit leads, he could decide to be unusual by infusing some other elements to his Afro-beat and making it become what he describes as Afro-fusion.

Unlike the Pioneer of Afro-beat, Fela Anikulapo Kuti whose Afro-beat sound got Nigerians awakened to the pain of bad governance, Adeexy’s Afrobeat sound relieves Nigerians of the pain.

His previous singles  “Easy”, “Wedding Day”  which was released July 2021  and Nov 2021 affirmed the claims that Adeexy’s kind of Afro-beat is excellently usual and creatively out of the norm.

 

Meanwhile, the question that may likely come to your mind at this point is; Why is Adeexy so good with Afro-beat?

 

The reason is not far-fetched, he is an artist who grew up culturally rich, his background as an Osun boy born and raised in Osun State made him a complete package of Afro-beat and more.

Taking a wide look around the music industry, you will notice the dominance of South-West artists and the huge success recorded from scores of artists from the South-West now.

 

No doubt, Adeexy has what it takes to be the next big thing in the history of Afro-beat. His current social media activities have given a hint that he’s got a new song coming and it’s definitely a project all Nigerian music lovers should watch out for.

Of course, the best of this young talent Adeexy is yet to come. Watch out for him!!

When asked; what made you start District Youth? 

He said;

“Growing up, I saw episodes where people around me wanted to learn a skill but were unable to afford it, because the cost of learning the skill was almost as much as what the families needed for support. That broke my heart even more…

So when I was in ss2, I thought to myself;

I want to be my own boss.

And I began to actively seek out opportunities that would enable me achieve this goal, eventually I graduated high school and got admitted into higher institution.

As we all know, the Nigerian educational system isn’t such a firm one and we had to deal with a lot of strikes while in school, during that infamous 6 months strike,

I got myself into working with different people in the industry which gave me a lot of platforms to start my career and Superbold professionally.

Quickie: Superbold is digital magazine with three printed editionsSee their lastest feature with Steff London Here.

I believe the youths hold the key to unlocking Nigeria’s economic potential and that is why I created this initiative District Youth so Youths can connect, network, be inspired and motivated to be the change they wish to see in their future.
