Apple music- a streaming service developed by Apple Inc– launched a new artist discovery program in Africa called Africa Rising.

The service has an Internet radio station Beats 1, which broadcasts live to over 167 countries 24 hours a day.

Every two months through the program, Apple Music’s editorial team will select one artist from the continent .

The Africa Rising initiative also includes an accompanying playlist featuring songs in different genres from some of the continent’s new and emerging artists. Its current playlist includes music from Nigeria’s Rema, South Africa’s Tellaman, and Kenya’s Bensoul.
