Musical style[edit]

MOG. Beatz’ musical style consists of a fusion of the well known, popular sound of Afrobeats with pop & soul giving his beats that vintage sweet sounds that we all know today. An M.O.G. Beatz’ production is a production not to be missed - inspired by Fela Kuti’s style of Afrobeats, M.O.G Beatz' style of drums down to the voice tones, baseline and melody of the beat alone will take you away.
