Jamaican DJ, Bounty Killer, says ‘Afrobeats is melodious but has no lyrics’
Rodney Basil Price, the Jamaican disc jockey better known as Bounty Killer, says “Afrobeats is melodious but has no lyrics.”
In a recent interview with INeverKnew TV, the DJ said Afrobeats is “like a baby” compared to Dancehall.
He, however, said the genre is enjoying global recognition because it has “groove and style.”
Bounty Killer also taunted Burna Boy’s hit track ‘Ye’, describing it as a one-word song with “a lot of melodies and nice beat.”
When asked if he believes Dancehall still has a place in the international market, Bounty Killer said the music genre is no longer as creative as it used to be.
The 50-year-old also described Jamaican music as “technically technical” with so many metaphors.
He said the technicality of his country’s music makes it difficult for people in the diaspora to enjoy.
“Afrobeat has nothing to do with Dancehall, Afrobeat is another genre. Afrobeat never comes in competition with Dancehall,” he said.
“Afrobeat is like a baby from Dancehall, it’s irrelative. Afrobeat and Jamaican music are similar and Afro is taking nothing from Dancehall, Afro compliments Dancehall.
“Afro is leading because Afro has a topic, Afro doesn’t have lyrics, Afrobeat doesn’t even have no lyrics. They have a lot of melody and groove and topic.
“Ye Ye Ye, we know what Ye Ye Ye means… just a topic and a melody. Style, melody, topic, simple. One word with a lot of melodies and the beat is nice and full of groove and style.
“Jamaican music is technical with metaphors. Why are you singing to us in metaphor? Make it simply technical, not technically technical. This is all Dancehall music is today – technically technical.
“They’re making the songs like a test. Nobody wants no puzzle music, people want music to relieve stress but we’re giving music to stress.
“Dancehall use to be creative but they’re not creative anymore. That’s Dancehall’s problem. The topics are limited.”
Kizz Daniel hints at separation from fiancée
Nigerian singer, Kizz Daniel, has dropped hints suggesting the end of his engagement with his mystery fiancée.
During a recent interview with media personality Angela Yee, The ‘Buga’ crooner gave cryptic responses when questioned about his relationship status, leaving fans speculating about the state of his engagement.
When asked directly about his engagement, the singer responded with a cryptic statement, saying, “What? Jesus is Lord, and God will always remain on the throne.”
Although vague, this remark suggests a potential separation between Kizz Daniel and his fiancée.
Further probing led to Kizz Daniel’s admission that “nothing happened” but emphasised that “life happens.”
He reassured the public that his children are content and in good health, mentioning that he now has three sons.
This caught many off guard, especially considering that the public was previously only aware of his sons, Jalil and Jelani, who were born in 2021 to his undisclosed girlfriend.
Tragically, Kizz Daniel had previously shared the heartbreaking news of Jamal, one of the triplets, passing away just four days after their birth.
However, during the interview with Angela Yee, the artist disclosed that he is now a father of three sons, leaving the public astonished by the revelation of his secret child.
