Music of African origin is in it’s most innovative time in history. We’ve seen the sound expand as new artists offer their distinct styles to the melodic sound.

Moving to the UK from Nigeria as a teenager didn’t discourage Kida Kudz from being himself or even indulging his nerdier impulses, and as a result, he has become a distinct figure in the UK rap community. He leans into his Nigerian background while detailing his reality as a UK rapper to create a sound that neatly fits alongside his sing-song delivery.
