Apple Music Celebrates Zimbabwe’s Independence Day

On April 18th 2023, Zimbabwe Celebrated its 43rd day of Independence. To mark the occasion Apple Music has prepared a special page acknowledging some of the best Zimbabwean albums to be released since the African nation gained its liberation.

 

The page is visible to all Zimbabwean subscribers on the service as of today (April 21).

The streaming platform which boasts almost 80 million subscribers also featured a mix from Zimbabwean DJ HALU! on their exclusive DJ Mix platform as their mix of the week.

The list of albums was curated by Phil Chard from Point Black, Danis Dube aka DannyThatGuy of ZiFM Stereo, Ranga Mberi from Sungura Central, music journalist Tafadzwa Madzika, former editor Henry Makiwa and lawyer, creative and music nerd, Bheki Ncube.

“We’re all very grateful to Apple Music for recognising Zimbabwean Music and celebrating our independence along with all the Zimbabweans at home and the diaspora. We have an incredibly rich and beautiful musical history that the world should hear.

“One frustration was that not all of the music we would like to feature is available on the platform. Hopefully, we can work with the artists to help get their music online soon,” said Chard

The list of albums features music that spans generations and genres. Oliver Mtukudzi, Chiwoniso, Winky D, Jah Prayzah, Killer T, Nutty O, Synik, Leonard Dembo, Sanii Makhalima, Gemma Griffiths, Hillzy, Freeman, Holy 10 and many more are all featured with some of their most impactful albums.
