Dazed magazine has a great write up on Nigeria's 'Alte' (which stands for "alternative") music scene. The article details how Afrobeats has come to dominate worldwide with Nigerian artists like Wizkid, Davido, and Burna Boy topping the charts, but that a new generation of Nigerian artists are creating a style of music - Alte. Dazed notes how Alte comprises a diverse range of styles, sometimes drawing on dancehall, indie, and R&B and has a strong visual storytelling component to it. Some of the hottest Alte stars include Santi, Odunsi, DJ Femo, and Lady Donli. Check it out here and some of the artists featured in this article below.
