“After storming the music trends in Africa and Europe, I felt the timing was right to put Afrobeats and Afropop on the main stage in the U.S. It’s slowly been hitting the underground scene for a while, but with the current collaborations with artists like Drake, Meek Mill, Wale, and Future, amongst others. We just had to do it.” says Paul O, CEO Upfront and Personal.
