Dj Bjay, Afro Soundz Radio’s Main DJ & Music Director Is Available To Comment On Afrobeats.

The beat-heavy, electronic music from Nigeria has been gaining a global fan base and is a point of pride across Africa. It’s also finally helping local artists make real money. But is Afrobeats establishing a path to global domination that other genres can follow, or is an entire continent being reduced to one country’s signature sound?

Dj Bjay is Afro Soundz Radio’s Main Dj & Music Director. He is a Nigerian US based disc jockey born and raised in Nigeria before moving to the U.S in 2007. With a Bachelor in Economics and Information technology, Dj Bjay decided to turn around the table by focusing on what he loves more, his passion, “disc jockey”. (afrosoundz.com)

DJ BJAY says: Afrobeat is so popular in the Black and Brown communities all over the USA because of its rhythm which is the most universal element of music in the world and it is very easy to adopt. Afrobeat is entertaining and also manifests interesting cultures and history of African rhythms that the rest of the world is yet to discover.
