I adore Afrobeats musicians, says Lordmansamusa
Nigerian American actor and businessman, Olaniyi Daniel Adedeji, alias Lordmansamusa, is a great fan of Afrobeats and he did not hide it. Neither did he hide his affection for Nigeria’s Afrobeats superstar, Davido, as he recently posted the picture he took with the Assurance singer on Twitter and followed it up a few days later with another picture of himself captioned with #davido and ‘am happy for today’.
Lordmansamusa said: “I am delighted that Nigerian music is taking the limelight on the global stage.”
According to Lordmansamusa, music is an aspect of creativity that Nigerians have demonstrated their dominance in the past few years.
“Here in America, Nigerians are acknowledged as the masters of afrobeats, and Davido is recognised as one of the best musicians of the genre,” he said.
The widely-travelled international businessman further opined that Afrobeats will one day become the global sound that will supplant the popular genres that are presently the rave in Europe and North America.
“Every genre of music has its peak period. Reggae had its era; pop had reigned supreme sometime in the past, and rock was once the height of creative music; in time, Afrobeats will become world No 1.,” he posited.
Speaking about his creative pursuits, Lordmansamusa avowed that his interest presently is only in acting. “While I love music and while I wouldn’t say I have explored or exploited my musical talent, acting, by and large, is my passion,” he said.
Continuing, he added: “I set out on the acting career two years ago, and I am not doing badly at the moment. Give me a few years, and I believe I will attain acting stardom.”
