The Republic V7, N4


Now available: Our December 2023 – January 2024 print issue, The Age of Afrobeats.

Afrobeats has come of age. From Asa to Wizkid, the artists covered in this issue and the writers who cover them, reveal Afrobeats to be more than an offshoot of Fela Kuti’s Afrobeat. They show that Afrobeats is more than a series of homogenous acts, and invite us to consider the various ideas, dreams, creativity, tensions, challenges and hopes that have given rise to perhaps the most infectious music genre present in the world today.
