In-spire LS Magazine was humbled to be the official media partners for the phenomenal Afrobeats Live which took place at the prestigious Jazz Cafe in Camden, London.

There is no denying that the Afrobeats movement is one to be recognised with music stars achieving national and international success with this infectious musical sound.

Of course, like many genres Afrobeats is not for everyone but one thing than cannot be denied was the immense energy brought to the stage by the talents. Each and every act brought their own unique energy and passion and majorly entertained the crowd.  Hosted by Capital Xtra’s DJ Abrantee, Afrobeats Live had performances from a number of emerging and seasoned music stars from this ever expansive musical movement.

The vibe was infectious, with a endless positive energy and musicians exuding an immense passion for their craft. The result was over 4 hours of constant reminders of the fact that Afrobeats is making major waves.

X Factor Runner-ups Reggie and Bollie made an appearance to pick up the award for their contribution to the scene but unfortunately did not perform. However, the range of artists on the night meant that no one in the crowd missed out.

DJ Abrantee proved to be the best possible host for the event; after all he has been one of if not the most influential media personality to raise the profile of Afrobeats on the musical stage. The live band were also fantastic and helped to keep the mood heightened throughout.
