MUSIC: THE LANGUAGE OF AFRICA (pidgin English) by @chelsie-b
"Kajad African na who I be,
And na correct African blood wey dey flow inside of me,
African music na the language of our spirit,
Where words fails, Na ein African music dey speak,
African music no dey ever die.
Instead, ein go refresh our memories."
@chelsie-b creatively composes a poem in Pidgin English which extols the greatness of African Music; its magical nature, strength and how it is a binding force for Africans.
MY FAVOURITE AFRICAN TUNES by @sholex94
"Music is one of those things that connect people together irrespective of their gender, age, country, etc and it has in so many ways helped me, I can't even quantify or say how much it had aid me in living a good life. Sometimes when am bored or not in a good music and I listen to music I feel very much okay and rejuvenated.
Anyways, I don't usually listen to secular music, just once in a while, the genre of music i do is mostly Gospel. Probably because I'm a church boy, a member of the choir and so on."
@sholex94 speaks about his personal journey with music, his top favorite songs and amazing Gospel artists. He also speaks about his joys and hopes for Afritunes project on Hive.
"It all just kind of happened, it was love at first sight, no I would say, love at first listen.
So he released his first single in 2015, wait for me ~ Johnny Drille. I was in my dad's car heading to school, when suddenly the radio station started playing his song. I fell instantly even though I didn't know the name of the song then. I wrote down the lyrics hoping to find out the name of the song. I didn't have an android phone so I couldn't even search for it."
@icyink takes us into her world of fiction, and carries us along in her journey of love with the Nigerian artists, Johnny Drille. She goes into details to describe the emotions the had from her secondary school days, when she nurtured deep affection for him, till this moment as she aims to be a devoted fan.

AFRI-TUNES MEMBER BADGE ✅️ (ADDITION)
Recall, in our post on Afri-tunes Project Update, we introduced the Member Badge in Afri-tunes Community and we promised to create more additions regularly.
Thus, we have awarded the member Badge to @jesus-son and @gloriaolar for their commitment and consistency in interactions and engagement in the community. Actions like these bring us a step closer into making this Community a hub where the aura of love dwells.
Just like we said earlier, the member badge, however, does not elevate any particular member over other members in any way. Regardless of our social standing or geographic location, we are all connected by our love and respect of African music.
