Apple Music has launched a great new bi-monthly playlist called Africa Rising, which showcases some of the best talent in Africa.

Nigerian-born, Afro-fusion singer and songwriter Omah Lay (pictured) will be the debut artist for the new program.

Africa Rising is now available in 33 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Africa is emerging as a very strong market in the music industry and it’s great to see that some of the new talent now has a greater platform.
