We appreciate everyone who continuously participate in our Afri-tunes weekly contest to share their African Music and tunes with the Community. We are happy that the community is growing day by day, week by week, month by month and year by year.

In order to maintain quality content while sharing our lovely African musical tunes, we wish to remind everyone about the following:

  • The minimum word count remains 250: however, if you use dual languages then it'll be 500.
  • Let your writeup contain more of your inspiration behind the song, the choice of the song, what the song means to you or any topic/write-up you wish to share with us.

Important ⚠️

We wish to revisit the use of adding lyrics in posts so that it doesn't take 50 - 80% of the post content. On this note, we wish to restate the following:

  • Adding lyrics is Optional
  • If you are the original composer of the song, you can add the whole lyrics
  • If it is a song cover and you copied the lyrics from the Internet, only include the 1st VERSE AND CHORUS in your post. Then cite properly by providing the link to the web page you got the lyrics from.

Hello, what don't you understand, let me put you through.

Thanks a lot boss.

Please, I've gone through some posts, and I saw some authors posted songs they composed by themselves, while some posted songs of other musician.

However, I will firstly like to be a member of this noble community.

Additionally, I will like to know about the activities of the community so that I will follow up

Ooo, there are so many things that can be done in the community, but first and foremost, it is the home of African music on Hive.

So any content about African music is allowed.

But we have our major focus:

You can participate in the Afri-tunes Weekly contest, where you can either share your own original song or a cover of another song, by following the week's contest.
