DJ Tellem takes over Europe with Afrobeats
As Nigerian music gradually dominates streaming platforms globally, a Nigerian Disc Jockey is making moves to take over Europe with Afrobeats.
The Nigerian born DJ Tosin Tellem said his aim is to push forward Nigerian tunes which have achieved crossover status in the United States.
Tellem, in a phone interview, said his zeal and dream is to ensure that this crossover status is also achieved in non-English speaking parts of Europe like France, Belgium, Spain and the list is endless.
He said in a time where Nigerian Afrobeats and hip-hop is the new cool, it is time the world and even Nigerians pay deeper attention to our artists not just at home but those who are based in the diaspora.
He added, “On the project for 2023 and beyond, my music will be tailored towards the fans and what they expect of me, not many artists the world over have in the core of their minds the yearnings of their fans.
“This project going forward is to appeal to the listening of not just Nigerians but Europeans and by further extension the American market.”
