Apple Music has rolled out a month-long campaign to promote the best playlists, artists and albums from all corners of the continent to celebrate Africa Month.
Following last week’s expansion of Apple Music into an additional 52 new countries around the world. This expansion gave 33 countries across Sub-Saharan Africa access to Apple Music.
The campaign comprises of 15 exclusive guest playlists which were selected by some of the continent’s finest artists such as Grammy winner Angelique Kidjo, Afrobeats superstar Davido, Jazz icon Abdullah Ibrahim and Afro-pop group Sauti Sol, to name a few. The playlist also has the best African songs of all time.
Speaking about the Africa Month campaign, Nigerian superstar Davido said, “Yes the world is currently in an odd place but I am staying positive and hoping for the best.” He adds that “It has given me a chance to enjoy some of the good things of life that work normally does not let me enjoy as much. For example, spending time with my family, especially my fiancé and son! The tracks on this playlist have made our mini house parties a lit situation!”
With Apple Music now available in 33 countries across Sub-Saharan Africa, Apple Music’s Africa Month campaign is set to be celebrated continent-wide.
With over 60 million songs, Apple Music offers a free 3-month trial with no commitment and is ad-free. Apple Music is available on iPhone and iPad and also for download from Google Play for Android devices.
