Commemorating Africa Day 2023 with inspirational Afrosoul Singer Lira
Africa Day is celebrated on the 25 May and to commemorate this occasion, today’s broadcast is dedicated to two of the greatest supporters of this radio program, the late Mr Lungi Daweti who was Channel Africa’s program manager and Mr Solly Phetoe who was the station manager, they strongly believed that women are the backbone of our continent.
In their honour we re-run the original podcast we recorded few years ago with award winning Afro-soul vocalist and songwriter Lira.
