They'll soon say Afrobeats is dead - Skales reacts to Wizkid's comment

Nigerian artiste, Raoul John Njeng-Njeng, better known as Skales, has finally weighed in on the controversial remark by Afrobeats star Wizkid that “Rap is dead.”

According to the ‘Shake Body’ crooner, one cannot outrightly say that something is dead, rather it is more reasonable to say it’s time has passed.

Skales argued that everything has time and season, and this concept applied to Hip Hop, just as it would also be for Afrobeats and other genres that are dominating the music scene.

Speaking in interview with Hip TV, the rapper said that with the way people have been opining that rap is dead, he is sure they would soon say the same for Afrobeats.

Skale said: “Everybody has their opinion. Wizkid has his own opinion so that [‘hip-hop is dead’] is his opinion. But for me, my own logic for life is that everything has time and season.

“Everything is going to come and go, and there is going to be another recycle, which means, if you are hot today, you might not be hot tomorrow. Today, if it’s rap that everybody is feeling, tomorrow it will be Afrobeats, and next tomorrow it will be Amapiano, and so on.

“So, I won’t say hip-hop is dead. You can’t say something is dead; it’s just not its time anymore. The excitement has moved somewhere else. I’m sure very soon, they will say Afrobeats is dead. It’s just timing. Nothing is meant to last forever. That’s why we all die one day.”

This is also coming weeks after Wizkid stirred mixed reactions by announcing that he does not want to be addressed as an Afrobeats artiste.
