APPLE MUSIC TUNES IN AFRICAN MUSIC

Apple Music has started a new show to showcase the latest music coming out of Africa. Nigerian-born DJ Cuppy is the host of Africa Now Radio, which is based on the recently launched Africa Now playlist.

On the debut episode, Nigerian producer Kiddominant, known for producing Davido's "Fall" and AKA's "Fela In Versace," joins Cuppy via FaceTimeto discuss his new single,  “eWallet” featuring South African rapper Cassper Nyovest. South African actress Pearl Thusi calls in to share her favorite African proverb and current favorite African song.

"With a DJ background, I'm excited not only to play music but showcase the vast array of talented artists cultivating the music scene on the continent," Cuppy said. "There are so many rich textures and sounds in Africa and the time is now for the world to embrace our diversity. Each and every week I'll be bringing a dynamic guide to discovering and celebrating the biggest and best sounds from across Africa, the Motherland.”

Africa Now Radio with Cuppy airs weekly on Sundays. The first episode starts this Sunday at 6am PT/9am ET.
