The FADAR, a popular New York-based music magazine has named its top 10 Ghanaian Afrobeat artistes the world needs to know.

The list which was released on yesterday, July 27 included rapper Sarkodie, Guru, Edem, Stonebwoy, Joey B, E.L, MzVee, R2Bees, D-Black and missing Castro 'Da Destroyer'.

According to the magazine, African music has long influenced genres worldwide, starting with the blues in the 19th century which has its roots in the music carried to America’s Mississippi Delta by African people forced into the slave trade.

It has also helped shape merengue, jazz, and, of course, rock, but on the western cusp of the African continent artistes have adopted their own take on a popularised American sound.

FADAR however recognised the contributions of Gyedu Blay Ambolley, Chief G and The Tribe, Native Funk Lords, Talking Drums, and stated that UK based Ghanaian Disc Jockey, DJ Abrantee named the genre "Afrobeats".
