Clef nite and Nneka went in so deep on the acoustic version of her "Camouflage" song on stage in New York City. The deep emotional tune left the audience mumbling without words and the venue filled with the re sound of her deep lyrics. It was really a night to remember.
AfroHighlife, the unique style of music created by Clef nite is an improved popular West African genre of music known as Highlife now remodified. He has sucessfully made a popular demand on this style of music which takes a shape from the buildups from some essential characteristics from different genres of music and more of some rhythmic patterns from East Africa. This style of music showcases some creative acoustic guitar patterns and some unexpected syncopation in most areas of the songs. This style of music has no definite form of existence, that means it might not take the buildup a regular song i.e. Intro-Verse/Chorus--Chrous/Verse--Verse/Chrous--Bridge-Climax
This style of music also features many style of traditional drumming of any kind. And in summary, we could see this as a contemporary approach to a new era of African Music elaborated
