Afrobeats Collaborations To Look Forward To In 2024 | Fab.ng

Afrobeats collaborations we look forward to in 2024

1. Rema and Wizkid

The most anticipated collaboration wish list for 2024 includes the kings of Afrobeats, Wizkid, and Rema. People are curious about the sound they would create together.

Considering Rema’s humble beginnings, reminiscent of Wizkid’s early days, he envisions a collaboration comparable to the impactful synergy of Wande Coal and Fireboy.

Beyond just making a hit, this collaboration has the potential for achievements in streaming numbers, chart dominance, and award nominations and recognition. The partnership between Wizkid and Rema would be a significant milestone for Afrobeats, which would also strengthen its global legacy.

2. Burna Boy and Ayra Starr

Have you ever wondered why the Mavin signee and the African Giant haven’t collaborated on a song yet? Burna Boy tends to create hits with pop-eccentric singers, evident in his songs like “Hey Boy” with Sia and “Gum Body” with Jorja Smith, but the synergy with Ayra Starr remains unexplored.

Ayra Starr is gaining recognition in unique ways, and she is poised to become a global all-rounder, while Burna Boy caters to a more mature audience.

Although they target different age groups, a collaboration between them could bridge the gap between generations and musical styles, benefiting both artists.

3. Ruger and BNXN

In 2022, both artists playfully teased each other’s brands and music in a friendly banter, leaving fans excited for more.

For their collaboration, picture it like an intense couple making up after a disagreement. BNXN might tenderly address his wrongs on the hook, expressing affection, while Ruger takes a dominant stance in his verses, providing reassurance and strength. This dynamic is likely to craft a compelling and emotionally charged musical story.

4. Asake and Kizz Daniel

Both Asake and Kizz Daniel share a carefree spirit embedded in their sounds, which always takes their listeners on a joyful and uplifting musical journey.

When these two artists collaborate, there’s little room for speculation about potential pitfalls or concerns regarding their musical elements. The anticipated outcome is nothing short of perfection, promising to enchant and uplift fans.

5. Fireboy DML and The Cavemen

Fans highly anticipate a potential collaboration between Fireboy and The Cavemen. Fireboy’s shift from a lover-boy persona to a playboy has raised concerns among fans, as his earlier works, like “Laughter Tears and Goosebumps” and “Apollo,” are regarded as his best.

However, the Cavemen have consistently maintained their identity as lover boys, expressing admiration for their partners.

The idea of Fireboy returning to his loverboy roots or playing an antagonist in a love story envisioned by The Cavemen springs to mind. The blend of Afro-life and high-life elements would add an exciting dimension to the overall production.

6. Davido and Omah Lay

The joint effort of Davido and Omah Lay could be a potential collaboration that might surprise many, which would end up creating a prospect that many would eagerly anticipate.

Musically, Davido and Omah Lay operate in different realms, producing songs from distinct perspectives. Davido is an energetic force focused on creating feel-good music for both lovebirds and party-starters.

In contrast, Omah Lay is into the realm of a broken heart, crafting soulful and reflective songs often labelled “Afro-depression.”

Therefore, a collaboration between these two artists would likely bring about an exquisite blend of both positive and negative vibes, resulting in equilibrium or balance, as observed in physics.

7. Olamide and Tems

One cannot overlook Olamide’s ability to undergo reformation or transition in sounds, exploring various genres in unparalleled ways among Nigerian and African rappers. He’s a mainstream artist known for making hit songs with almost every raving genius in the Afrobeats world.

Similarly, Tems has her roots in pop and has left her mark on the global music scene with some of the hottest collaborations of all time.

In a collaboration between the two, you should expect everything that music has to offer, from sweet-toned vocals to lyrics that strike a chord of relatability. The partnership is ready to deliver a well-rounded musical experience.
