I’m Better Than Chris Brown – Upcoming Singer Kohen Jaycee

Upcoming singer Kohen Jaycee while appearing on NBS After 5 claimed to be better than American singer, Chris Brown. Jaycee was answering a question in regards to the type of music he does dubbed Afro RnB.

The Ndi naawe singer said that he can’t claim to be better than American singer Chris Brown in RnB because it’s his genre but the Ugandan is better in Afro RnB.

According to Kohen, Afro RnB is a new style of music that the majority of Africans have decided to embrace as their identity.

“I feel like the more we use Afro, the more we identify. I can’t say that I’m better than Chris Brown when it comes to doing RnB. That’s his thing, it’s his calling but I can say that I’m better than him in Afro RnB. We are identifying ourselves at something that we know we do so well. We’re not trying to take anything from soul music as a genre because the styles are quite similar. We are only identifying as music made in Africa and eventually exported to the world,” Kohen Jaycee said.

For a long time, Ugandans and Africans, in general, have been criticized for borrowing foreign genres.

Music styles from the likes of Jamaica and other parts of the Caribbean, the US among others have been common on the continent.

This had been costing Africans a lot especially in terms of award nominations. This was because they couldn’t do the styles better than the founders.

However, with the rise of Afro-beat genre, African musicians are taking the world by storm.

The likes of Burna Boy, Wizkid, Davido among others are some of the hottest properties globally just doing Afro music currently.
