Apple is lending a helping hand to artists in South Africa who have been hard hit by COVID19, as reported by OkayAfrica:

Apple Music has launched a new initiative dubbed “Stream Local” which is set to launch on April 11th. The initiative forms part of the music streaming giant’s efforts to support South African musicians as the industry is increasingly negatively impacted by the coronavirus outbreak. Playlists across genres as well as the albums of several chart-topping South African artists will be featured in addition to newly-released music.

The program will reportedly help these following artists:

Chart-topping albums from the likes of Elaine, Blaq Diamond, Kabza de Small, and DJ Maphorisa, as well as the latest music releases from the likes of Ami Faku, Sha Sha and Bongeziwe Mabandla, will also be featured. The latter recently released his third studio album titled iimini, described as a calm meditation on relationships.
