RADIO: ‘Vitamin Music’ show merges American hip-hop, Afrobeat

Host Samuel brings together songs from two continents in new KSDS HD-2 show

The name “Vitamin Music” is because everyone loves music — it doesn’t matter what type of music is. The show is a contrast of two types of music genres, American hip-hop and AfroBeat.

“Vitamin Music” is produced by Samuel Sefu of City Times Sound.

The is the “Vitamin Music” show at City Times Sound, 88.3 FM KSDS HD-2 San Diego. My name is Sammy. I’m going to be playing Afrobeat music and American hip-hop music.

Afrobeat is a musical genre that blends African rhythms. It was created by Nigerian legend Fela Kuti in the late 1960s. Let’s start the show with Burna Boy, another Nigerian who is following the root of Afrobeat in a new generation and doing it good.

You’re listening to KSDS HD-2 San Diego. You just heard “Till I Collapse” by Eminem, one of the best rappers of all time. Remember this is the “Vitamin Music” show. Music, it’s a medicine. And this is “JEJE” by Diamond Platnumz from East Africa, Tanzania.

Thank you for listening to “Vitamin Music” and this was my first show. We’re going to end with “Falling in Love” By Harmonize, one of the best singers and songwriters from Tanzania. Here we are talking about Swahili and English being mixed at the same time. They call him Konde Boy.
