Like her recently released album is aptly called, Azawi is literally taking “African Music” to the world.

The “Slow Dancing” singer who has just inked a deal with Guinness is currently one of the African stars shinning brightest as she appears on YouTube’s Black Voice billboards in New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and London.

The billboards are creating awareness for YouTube’s Black Voice Music Class of 2022, in which Azawi is among the 21 African artists representing the continent on the programme from the United States, Kenya, Brazil, Australia, South Africa, and Nigeria.

“Queen of vibes on Billboards in New York City Times Square & Los Angeles. African Music to the world,”

Participants in the programme will each receive partner support, seed funding to invest in the development of their channels, and opportunities to participate in training and networking programmes focused on production, fan engagement and wellbeing.

The news generated excitement from fans and fellow artistes.

Since its release two weeks ago, Azawi’s African Music album has garnered over 1m streams on different platforms.
