In this week’s episode, we look at the explosion of Afrobeats through the lens of data. Christine Osazuwa, music data expert and Chief Strategy Officer at Shoobs, discusses how data can show us hidden stories behind the globalization of all sorts of genres: K-Pop, Reggaeton, Bollywood, and more.  “Music drives culture, culture drives music, etc,” Christine says. “I find it really funny how people were shocked by the rise of Latin music while the Spanish speaking population in the U. S. grew exponentially. It was very obvious that this rise was going to become a thing ... when it comes to looking at U. S. census data.” Christine highlights significant Afrobeats contributions from Nigerian and Ghanaian artists. She also delves into the unique ways small artists can leverage digital tools to examine data about their own listenership, particularly in regions where YouTube reigns supreme. Christine shares her excitement for new tools that help artists to genuinely connect with fans and tailor their marketing and distribution to their personal beat.
