Is Hip-Hop’s future in Africa? Is Kwaito the stepchild of early eighties Chicago House and New Orleans Bounce? Is the Hip-Life duo, PSquare, heirs to Fela’s throne? Has African music lost its soul? What is African music? Is reggae still relevant?
In its fourth issue dedicated entirely to music, Bakwa magazine is seeking short fiction, essays, reviews and poems that celebrate or castigate sounds currently in rotation on, YouTube, Sound Cloud, FM stations in Lagos, Bamenda, Nairobi, Atlanta, Brixton and beyond.
Bakwa 04 encourages submissions that circumvent conventional interpretations of the evolving sounds and trends while offering new insights into older sounds and trends.
