Since he struck gold with the hit “Drogba” last year, British musician and radio host Afro B has been on a roll, taking Afrowave — the fusion of rap, dancehall, and Afrobeat that he’s made his staple — worldwide, with “Drogba” peaking at No. 23 on Billboard’s increasingly tough-to-crack R&B/Hip-Hop chart. With the release of last year’s Afrobeat 3, he seemed to be stepping up to another level, positioning himself as an arbiter of UK-US cultural transfer and style. Now, he’s taken the time to sit down with The FADER to share his knowledge a little more, giving us his Top 5 most underrated Afro songs — a list that turns out to be full of surprises. Watch Afro B’s Top 5 video above, and watch the rest of our Top 5 videos here.
