Apple Music Africa has launched a dedicated space on the new YVNG & FREE platform for the next generation of artists and creatives who are innovating within their craft.

To honour Youth Day 16 June, an exclusive Audio On Demand  Radio show will be hosted by the new African Now Radio host and Mzansi TV and radio personality LootLove (real name Luthando Shosha), featuring interviews and music from South Africa’s most inspiring young artists and creatives. 

LootLove to discuss concept of freedom in SA

Under the banner of YVNG & FREE, LootLove will discuss the concept of freedom in South Africa with a group of young artists and creatives who have found new ways to stand up for the underrepresented and have the courage to tell their own intersectional stories.

YVNG & FREE will also feature a playlist with exclusive artwork by boundary-breaking Capetonian illustrator, Yay Abe (real name Russell Abrahams), who has created striking work for a number of major international brands. 

Playlists by YoungstaCPT and more

Artists themselves have curated playlists for people to enjoy, including the work of other local artists, as well as their picks from their own repertoires. These artists include YoungstaCPT, Zoe Modiga, Elaine and SiBi, Afrofuturist DJ, producer and songwriter Muzi, as well as up-and-coming artist Blxckie.
