Music and podcast streaming platform Spotify has announced South Africa’s Nomfundo Moh as the latest to join the EQUAL Africa programme.
The programme is aimed at highlighting Africa’s female artists. This is after Nomfundo’s debut album, Amagma, which she released in January 2022.
She is the second South African to be part of this programme.
“Being part of Spotify’s EQUAL programme actually shows me that my talent, as a woman, is recognised and that there are people who are willing to help me. People who see my vision and ambition and people who want to put me on greater heights,” Nomfundo has said.
The head of Music for sub-Saharan Africa at Spotify, Phiona Okumu, also said, “We are proud to welcome a talent such as Nomfundo to the EQUAL programme. Our commitment to finding and amplifying the voices of female African creators on the African continent has led us to find exceptional voices like Nomfundo, and the amazing talents before, such as Ayra Starr, Amaarae and DBN Gogo. It is our hope that other young women creators see this as a proof that their talents can and will be recognised and supported.”
Tracks from Nomfundo’s Amagama album are featured on the EQUAL Africa and EQUAL Global playlists.
