Future Sounds Vol.20 featuring Boybreed, Duncan Daniels, Ginius, June, B Mello and more
This week, we scouted and discovered ten tracks by up-and-coming artists that will further assure you that the future of African music is in safe hands.
A/Ring appears to be deviating from the traditional method of scouting and discovering young talents in favor of looking for the next TikTok star, which in the long run will cripple, if not ruin, the industry. Pulse Nigeria's Future Sounds playlist aims to find and highlight emerging artists whose sounds should rule the future in a market where customers are always looking for new talent but have few opportunities to see it displayed.
The new songs added:
