Top Kenyan shrapper Boutross Munene dreams of taking shrap music international, all the way to the Grammys. This comes after the Grammy’s voted to include more categories.
This opens up various African sounds to gain recognition in this feted worldwide ceremony. Best African music performance made it to the new categories included for the next ceremony.
They include but are not limited to the Afrobeats, Afro-fusion, Afro-Pop, Alte, Amapiano, Bongo Flava and Genge. Others include Kizomba, Chimurenga, High Life, Fuji, Kwassa, Ndombolo, Mapouka, Ghanaian Drill, Afro-House, South African Hip-Hop, and Ethio Jazz genres.

Shrap is a Kenyan fusion of English, Swahili and sheng rap and resonates more with the majority of urban youth.
