SlikourOnLife Uncover Diamonds in the Rough with Certified Africa
Johannesburg, Wednesday, June 30, 2021: In the spirit of discovering future classics Certified Africa and SlikourOnLife uncover Diamonds in the Rough – a new playlist dedicated to showcasing songs by artists who have cadence, the ear and skill to provoke emotion.
Diamonds in the Rough is the second guest playlist from SlikourOnLife, following the Youth Day tribute Listen 2 The Kids to launch on Certified Africa across Apple and Spotify, earlier this month.
“Our music platform www.slikouronlife.co.za receives a lot of great music which music lovers don’t get to hear and in the spirit of finding future classics our platform acknowledges the future artists that will be creating these classics. The ‘Diamonds in the Rough’ playlist is a showcase of songs that would be stand outs if they were released by artists with a wider fan base”, says Siya Metane of SlikourOnLife.
Siya Metane emphasises the power of developing artists together, stating “…within this playlist we believe that in the next two years, one of the names here will be on the way to being a great and we hope you continue to search for more content from all the artists ‘cause Diamonds in the Rough can only shine if you listen”.
Certified Africa is the African-rooted, globally connected custodian dedicated to celebrating some of the most iconic music and artists from the ’80s, ’90s and ’00s. Undisputed classics of Hip Hop, R&B/Soul and Kwaito. Music that has shaped a culture over three decades – marked by momentous change and musical innovation through the creation of genres that expressed the hopes, dreams, struggles and desires of communities in Africa and globally, and that are now music mainstays.
More than simply nostalgia, Certified Africa represents both a re-discovering of great music and a way to find meaning in the present through an emotional reconnection with heritage and an ongoing appreciation for the sounds that continue to shape us.
