This Sunday, May 31st, Apple Music are launching a brand new radio show: ‘Africa Now’. The show will debut at 9AM EDT with Nigerian DJ and music producer Cuppy hosting the show through its selection of African music.

They’ll cover a broad range of the music from Africa including Afrobeat, rap, house music, kuduro and more for one hour each week. Cuppy said in a statement: “This show represents a journey from West to East and North to South, but importantly a narrative of Africa then to Africa now.”
