Of African musicians and breaking the American music space #earGROUND

The journey has not been kind to kind to contemporary artists as it was for the likes of Hugh Masekela and Miriam Makeba who topped the hot 100 and cracked the top 10 respectively. Wizkid topped the charts alongside Drake on One Dance but his solo follow ups haven’t emulated the success. America is an enigma that African musicians have not been able to crack yet.
