I came across an uplifting piece of material while browsing the net. With all the Malema-, ET- and BBC journo-news, this was refreshing and much needed. As I read this, I took a deep breath and allowed the positive vibes to embrace me.
Okay, enough drama.
Fifteen radio stations agreed to broadcast only local (85%) and African (15%) music during the 2010 Soccer World Cup. How awesome is that! Not only is this great exposure for local performers but us South Africans will actually get to hear what this country has to offer. It’s about time they let go of all the I want to break free’s and Private Dancer’s and fill our ears with some home-grown tunes. Yeah, baby. That’s what I’m talking about.
“Three commercial radio stations would continue playing a mix of local and international music”. Whateva.
If (African) music be the food of love, play on.
