Despite having most of his works these days in the R&B and Latin genres or as a musician, producer and promoter Anthony Lerone Jackson popularly known as Toño Negron has said he has deep love for Afrobeat music.

Toño Negron is the founder of the Negron World record label and having collaborated with artists from Colombia, Costa Rica, Panama, The Dominican Republic, South Africa and Nigeria, he said that there is something special about Afrobeat.

“Afrobeat is like a mixture of sounds that get to your nerves and soul. I know this because as a young boy I felt the same love for salsa and it even inspired me to learn to write and speak Spanish as I aspired to compose music within that genre and travel Latin America”

“I’m proud of the Afrobeat songs and collaborations we have like “Still on the Matter”, “Nigeria to Colombia” and the label also has the “Negron World Afrobeats albums Volume 1 and 2”, he said.
