African excellence in music is a topical subject at the moment, globally. Prominent musicians and record labels are key opinion leaders driving this global conversation.
Africans can be extremely proud of the caliber of musicians coming from the continent, with several home-grown talents releasing smash hits and making waves internationally. In this vein, HUAWEI MUSIC Africa is showcasing fresh artists from across Africa, who exemplify traditional, contemporary and cutting edge African music culture. Artists being showcased on the music streaming platform include cKay, Manu Worldstar, Elaine, Sho Madjozi, Burna Boy, Mvzzle, Faith K, and Redsan, just to name a few.
The HUAWEI Music team has curated six new playlists, which showcase emerging and iconic artists from Eastern Africa, Southern Africa, and Western Africa. Each playlist is tailored according to specific tastes and preferences of subscribers from these regions according to locally relevant music genres, such as Amapiano, Gqom, Kwaito, Afrobeats, Alte, Gospel and South African Rock. Stalwarts of music like Fela Kuti, Hugh Masekela, Miriam Makeba, TKZee and the Springbok Nude Girls are equally celebrated alongside emerging talents and contemporary superstars.
