Mmeli Hlanze and Sizo Hlophe are part of the team behind Antidote Music – an independent record label and music consultancy company based in Eswatini. In business since 2012, Antidote Music is now one of the most established labels in the country. They focus on Eswatini electronic music.

Music from Nigeria and South Africa is taking over the mainstream, you can’t deny it, but what about the other rich cultural influences on the continent? In this episode, Claude talks to those who are fighting to get their sound heard and asks them which African artists are going to blow up this year.

Please listen to a previous episode: Does Black Lives Matter matter to Africa?
