They say Music goes far but good music goes further and it travels faster than the speed of light. Abuja fast rising rapper Zilla Oaks was listed among the new African talents that Apple Music has discovered. Every two months through the program, Apple Music’s editorial team will select one artist from the continent and amplify their music to its users in 167 countries.
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 South Africa’s Tellaman and Kenya’s Bensoul with few other Nigerian great talents.
Nigerian Afrofusion artist Omah Lay is the debut artist for the program.
This is a great height for Abuja Music in general and we got a response from Zilla saying “I am not stunned but I feel great the music is moving”
