Asake Kanye West-ing: Are Choir Sing-Alongs the new thing in Afrobeat?

Nigerian artist, Asake has undoubtedly been one of the most talked about artists in the scene all year; even music magnate, Don Jazzy thinks so!

In recent global music, we’ve seen gospel-like songs go mainstream; thanks to people like Kanye West and his Sunday Service Choir. Afro rappers like Zlatan and Naira Marley have also pioneered a similar technique into mainstream African music with multiple layer adlibs and groups of people singing at the same time. This almost subconsciously calls listeners to sing harmoniously on cue!

This technique is present in all of Asake’s 2022 bangers including his viral meme worthy performance in Fireboy’s Bandana video.

With him being super trendy right now, the Choir swag has even caught on to Afrobeat stars like Burna Boy. Here are our Top 5 songs Asake does his Choir thing, including songs from his brand new album, Mr. Money With The Vibe:

  1. Mr Money 
  2. Omo Ope ft Olamide 
  3. Terminator 
  4. Palazzo (with DJ Spinall)
  5. Peace Be Unto You 

With songs like DJ Khaled’s GOD DID, we can safely say taking us to Church is a great way to make a pop smash in 2022 and we’re pretty sure Asake’s American tour is going to be enjoyed with his contagious sing-alongs!
