Today’s holiday edition includes an awesome line up of songs such as “Musuma” by Patience Namadingo (Malawi), “Pray for Me” by Teddy Ride (Liberia), “Joy” by Wizkid (Nigeria) and an exclusive, debut pre-release by Mozambican legendary singer Mingas. Two vintage tunes start us out with peaceful, joyous vibes: Ephat Mujuru’s “Peace” (Zimbabwe 2002) and The Lijadu Sisters “Osupa” (Nigeria 1977).
We also bring special holiday 2020 reports from Ghana, Kenya and Sierra Leone. Samed Gaida brings us greetings and song dedications from listeners in Ghana’s Northern Region, Tamale. Bill Odidi presents his favorite, new holiday music by Kenyan artists (plus a sweet greeting to his own family) from Nairobi. From Freetown, Mohammad King Milan reports on how the holiday season is being celebrated this year and what that sounds like in the streets and homes of Sierra Leone.
