Deezer to launch Dance Africa playlists

Deezer has announced its partnership with Africa’s top musicians to launch its Dance Africa series of playlists which will include music from 22 artists across the continent such as South Africa’s Master KG, Kamo Mphela, Makhadzi and De Mthuda, as well as Nigeria’s WurlD and Toofan, among others, who each share their top songs.

WurlD said: “Dance is a way of expressing how you feel when the music hits you the right way. You don’t have to be great at dance to express yourself. The freedom we feel when I dance is beyond words, a sweet escape.”

“We wanted to showcase the rich diversity of sounds across the continent with our Dance Africa playlist. For the first time, music fans will be able to party hop from South Africa to the Ivory Coast – all within the comfort of their home.”
