Inevitably as the broadsheets finally allow grime a seat at the top of the table, the streets have started bumping to a whole new sound. Afrobeats stars mix vocals driven by its West African heritage with narratives that are a response to the unpredictability of London life. These are the dance jams of now.

"I'm for the people. My vision is beyond big houses and fast cars. Money is just paper. What do you do after that? Do you just keep splashing more and more? I come from Africa, Africa was once like Europe. How dare I leave there and become wealthy, and that's it? I wanna be a good change via music…" - @omofrenchie [The Family Values Issue, No. 347]
