Over the years, Afrobeat music has evolved and since gained popularity among music lovers with the influx of new and diversified genres from upcoming artistes who are looking towards changing the narrative in the Nigerian music industry. One of such artistes is Gokelet, who piloted his own unique sound and termed it as ‘Afrofeel’.

Fast-rising singer Gokelet, born Oyegoke Yusuf, started out as an Afrobeat singer but appears to be evolving in the kind of sound he puts out for music fans.

He calls his style Afrofeel and he seems to have mastered his game as he says he would reveal much about his style in his upcoming music projects, which starts with an EP.

With the music industry constantly demanding a new sound and vibe from its acts, Gokelet said he’s revved up to change the narrative and create a unique brand of music that does not only make people want to dance but help them get along with whatever struggle life throws at them.

He added that his new style is proof that he was born for music and is ever ready to thrill his fans and music lovers with soulful music.

“Music is my thing, I was born for music. It is something I do effortlessly, all I want is to make my fans happy and I’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen,” he said.

Gokelet, who already has multiple singles under his belt, including a hit collaboration with Reminisce, disclosed that he intends to make his forthcoming project based on the Afrofeel genre.

He added that despite the competition in the music industry, he doesn’t believe he has to try to outshine anybody but to focus on making quality music.

“Afrofeel was derived from Afrobeat. It is an infusion of Afropop, Afro R&B and Afrobeat. This is the new direction for my sound and my forthcoming EP,” he said.
