It’s been an interesting year for UK based Afrobeats, never more apparent in the mainstream but also still lead by one shining light Fuse ODG, who released an LP, refused Band Aid and then did his own song for charity in 2014. Moelogo got signed and had the song that ran the roads. Speaking of roads Peckham’s Naira Marley remains a fun outlier. Hagan and Major Notes brought the genre even closer to the UK clubs. Here are our top picks of 2014:
