The African Legends Night Heritage Month campaign will showcase some of the continent's most illustrious musical talents, paying homage to the diverse traditions and legacies that have shaped the continent’s music.

From the infectious rhythms of Afro-music, highlife to the soul-stirring melodies of traditional folk songs and Afrobeats, the campaign offers a mesmerizing journey through the vibrant tapestry of African music. The campaign serves as a tribute to the cultural heritage and musical prowess that have long defined Africa's identity.

As part of the campaign, a specially curated daily music playlist segment has been created on YFM and Happy FM to play songs by African music legends for listeners to enjoy.
