As the name implies, Afro-beats, a genre of music that represents the sound and musical tune of Africa but it is saddening that many Nigerian artiste who claim to be Afro-beat acts are doing music far from what is true-afrobeat.
Jerro B is one of the few Nigerian artiste that can boast of discography filled with true Afro-beat and sometimes as the spirit leads, he could decide to be unusual by infusing some other elements to his Afro-beat and make it become what he describes as Afro-fusion.
Unlike the Pioneer of Afro-beat, Fela Anikulapo Kuti whose Afro-beat sound got Nigerians awakened to the pain of bad governance, Jerro B’s Afro beat sound relieves Nigerians of the pain.

His previous single “Your Matter” which was released March 2021 affirmed the claims that Jerro-B’s kind of Afro-beat is excellently usual and creatively out of the norm.
Meanwhile, the question that may likely comes to your mind at this point is; Why is Jerro B so good with Afro-beat?
The reason is not far-fetched, he is an artiste who grew up culturally rich, his background as a Delta Isoko boy born and raised in Osun State made him a complete package of Afro-beat and more.
Taking a wide look around the music industry, you will notice the dominance of South-West artistes and the huge success recorded from scores of artistes from the South-South now imagine Jerro B as a combination of the two.
No doubt, Jerro B has what it takes to be the next big thing in the history of Afro-beat. His current social media activities have given a hint that he’s got a new song coming and it’s definately a project all Nigerian music lovers should watch out for.
Of course, the best of this young talent Jerro B is yet to come. Watch out for him!!
