Its interesting to see the rise of the Afrobeats movement in the UK. Its crossed boundaries in the same way dancehall and reggae has done, with kids from all backgrounds well into it.
Ironically (me being Nigerian and all) the first I got wind of this vibe was via my friend's daughter who's of Jamaican and Trinidad background. She knew all the songs and I would hear them playing in the background each time I visited. When I asked her she said her friends of Ghana and Nigerian origin get the latest mixtapes and stuff. So if you want to know whats up too no better way than to check out UK DJ Juls Summertime Afrobeat Mix Vol. 2 Mixtape or listen online @his sound cloud page
