Apple Music Launches Its First Radio Show In Africa With Nigeria’s DJ Cuppy

Published

on

NEW YORK – Apple Music has launched its first radio show in Africa. The streaming platform announced Thursday that “Africa Now Radio with Cuppy” debuted Sunday and featured a mix of contemporary and traditional popular African sounds, including genres like Afrobeat, rap, house, kuduro and more.

Cuppy, the Nigerian-born DJ and music producer, will host the weekly one-hour show, which will be available at 9 a.m. EDT. “The show represents a journey from West to East and North to South, but importantly a narrative of Africa then to Africa now,” Cuppy in a statement.

African music and artists have found success outside of the continent and onto the pop charts in both the U.S. and U.K. in recent years. Acts like Drake and Beyoncé have borrowed the sound for their own songs, while performers like South African DJ Black Coffee as well as Davido, Burna Boy, Tiwa Savage, Wizkid and Mr Eazi — all with roots in Nigeria — continue to gain attention and have become household names.

Apple Music’s announcement comes the same week Universal Music Group said it was launching Def Jam Africa, a new division of the label focused on representing hip-hop, Afrobeat and trap talent in Africa. The label said it will be based in Johannesburg and Lagos but plans to sign talent from all over the continent.

Mr Shawtyme & Yoofi Greene make their musical debut with feel-good jam “MamaDada”

Ghanaian powerhouse dance duo Mr Shawtyme & Yoofi Greene make their musical debut with the light-hearted afro-dance number “MamaDada”.

Already playing a key role in African music as professional dancers and choreographers, Mr Shawtyme and Yoofi Greene officially make their joint debut as recording artists with “MamaDada”, which features the DWP Academy and DJ Flex.

Mr Shawtyme and Yoofi Greene are both widely known for their viral dance videos, their highly coveted international dance workshops, and their work with superstars across the globe such as Mr Eazi, Wyclef, Shatta Wale, Fabulous, and Victoria Kinami, just to name a few.

Just in time for summer, the feel-good afro-infused jam is poised to set the jolly season ablaze. Speaking to Unorthodox Reviews, the duo revealed that though they penned the song with the primary intent of simply spreading good vibes through music and dance, “MamaDada” also has a cryptic message directed at typical African parents who hold the notion that their wards cannot make a decent living through music and dance, a problem that both creatives had to battle with on their come up. The song is thus intended to be an anthem for young creatives who find themselves in the same situation.

The duo also revealed that “MamaDada” is a precursor to a joint EP titled “Tales of Two Worlds” set to be released later on in the year, which is bound to have a lot more hit songs to look forward to.
