Today I was feeling like I needed that Afrobeat
Afrobeats make me move my feet, where I can’t sit in my seat.
There is so much on my mind right now. There so much on everybody’s mind.
You can only imagine how much we must be filled with thoughts, having to research all the things we hear, constantly tuning into media and social media.
The Truth can be shocking and a bit discouraging at times.
This may be one reason why so many don’t dig deep to find facts. Relying solely on media news and social media is the easy way out.
The events and uncertainties in life are overwhelming right now.
Sometimes I need Afrobeats TO ESCAPE IT ALL!
Today is one of those times. Kevy
Now, I can’t move to Afrobeats music the way South Africans do. I don’t have it going on like that! But I’m dancing in the spirit, and it’s almost impossible for me to think about the stresses or the distractions of life while I’m listening to that afrobeat.
It’s something about that African drum. That drumbeat connects to my heart and it takes me away from whatever negative state my spirit may wander to.
Please enjoy a few mixes, tracks, videos, and information that I’ve selected so that you can feel that afrobeat too.
Most is from South Africa. I’ve been to South Africa, to Cape Town South Africa. OMG! It is so beautiful there.
You hear all kinds of music in the streets that lift spirits.
Do not think that South Africa is primitive. Not! The only part of South Africa that’s somewhat primitive is in the shanty towns which apartheid caused. What apartheid did to people there caused them to live in cardboard, and tin homes.
But nonetheless, they still have a community filled with the spirit of Love, dance, and good music. I know. I’ve been in those communities.
When I feel That Afrobeat, I feel the spirit of Cape Town South Africa.
Please enjoy. Kevy

Visiting Cape Town, South Africa In 2000
The close of 2020 has many reflecting on good times in the past.
The other day I browsed my photo collection and recalled one of my finest memories, my trip to Cape Town, South Africa, 20 years ago. Cape Town is my favorite city.
In my opinion, it is the most beautiful city in the world. Kevy
