Boomplay, Africa’s largest music streaming platform, has partnered with Generations Radio, France’s premier syndicated Hip Hop and Soul radio station, to launch the Top Africa Charts show to promote African music and spotlight African artists.
The partnership establishes the Top Africa Charts show as the first ever African music charts show on mainstream radio in France, sourced from Boomplay’s African charts and produced by Generations Radio.
The show features top songs from Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, Cote d’Ivoire and many other African countries every week while spotlighting new artists, songs and key music developments across Africa.
The Top Africa Charts show broadcasts live on Generations Radio from its Paris studios every Sunday from 20h00 – 21h00 GMT+1 and assumes two broadcast formats; in French and English.
The French format is a live radio show and podcast hosted by sensational OAP, Ornella and the English version is in podcast format, presented by Cleopatra, with both shows hosting special guests.
As an Africa-focused streaming service, Boomplay is constantly seeking opportunities to promote African artists and their content.
Thus a collaboration to provide more reach for African music and introduce many African artists to the French market fits our vision of empowering the African music ecosystem
