Kaptain Kush… The Guard Of Afrobeat Music
AfroBeat is currently congested with a load of undoubtedly talented people but one cannot stop to think that there is a missing piece. The Afrobeat is currently in a state of thirst and the need for perfection is on high demand hence there is a question on most lips. “Where is the missing peg?”.
We currently believe that Kaptain Kush might just be that square that has shaped up over time to fit in this circle we termed AfroBeat.
Why do we say so? Kaptain Kush has a good number of songs in digital stores already coupled with his body of work “Love and Breakup (L.A.B), so there is enough work to judge him with, and judging from those works we have put together pieces and evidence to note without errors that his style will easily pass for advance tune in this genre. A touch of spiked lyricism and critical blend of melody intertwining to compensate a light vocals on club bangers can ease your judgment.
His July 2020 released EP “Love and Breakup (L.A.B)” which peaked at No. 87 in the iTunes Top 100 R&B/Soul Albums on its first week of release is another added reason to give him the Afrobeat guard recognition.
We have seen Kaptain Kush rose to the mainstream as “Sorry” off his debut EP made it to the number 1 spot on the iTunes South Africa Chart outranking the likes of Davido, Wizkid, Burna Boy, Omah Lay and others.
Since Afrobeat has created room for new intakes, Kaptain Kush is closely taking that chance with his blend of unique sound.
