Hi every one!

For those of you who don’t know, Tim Westwood is a highly respected British DJ based in London. He has his own show on which he features only the popular and influential artistes of the day. As a rapper or singer, IF you have not made it on to the Tim Westwood show, you haven’t really arrived on both the UK and international music scene.
Tim Westwood is an institution in the music industry and to appear on his show is a rite of passage for musicians from all over the world.
In this blog edition we are going to highlight 7 Africans who have made it on to his show and shown their skills in free styling sessions.

TUFACE IDIBIA

I wasn’t particularly thrilled with Tuface’s performance,I think he is just weak on freestyling.I’ve watched several other freestyle sessions and they weren’t so hot.Watch and let me have your opinion.

I don’t think Tim understood the concept of Azonto and there’s a couple of white dudes having a go at it,fun to watch.

WIZKID

He went in harrrrrd,introducing two of his boys who weren’t bad either. Sway is from Ghana, but is based in London.

I’m happy to see Africa musicians be acknowledged on an international level and not only that,they show that they are worthy of the achievements they have acquired for themselves.
It would be nice to see the standards continue to rise in the African music industry and the musicians soar even higher.
Support the music industry in Africa y’all!

Viva l’Afrique.
