It’s really dope to see Afrobeat and Hip-hop artists collaborating like this, intertwining their styles in a song. Pere symbolizes a melting point of two very different yet similar styles. The chorus is absolutely Afrobeat but the verses are very hip-hop. The keyboard sample and the bounce from the 808 create a very familiar Afrobeat sound, and Davido does his thing.

Hopefully there are some more collaborations to come and one day, the masses will be able to enjoy authentic Afrobeat music devoid of any pandering.
