Since 2005, MTV Base has taken up the important role of showcasing the best of Africa’s talent to the world. From the days of the legendary song, “African Queen” by 2Face Idibia, to the more recent “Way too Big” by Burna Boy, MTV Base has remained one of the biggest supporters of African entertainment.
Taking its support to a whole new level, the music, lifestyle and entertainment channel created a quarterly music panel discourse tagged Musicology, that is uniquely designed to look into the different aspects of the music business and the progressive journey of Africa’s music industry.
Commemorating its ground-breaking entry into the African market, MTV Base will air a special episode of its quarterly music panel discourse, Musicology at 8pm WAT on Thursday, April 1, 2021, on Channels 322 and 72 on DStv and GOtv respectively.
Hosted by its superfly VJ, Ehiz, and themed “Looking back 16 years: The Pan-African Discuss”, this special episode will explore the gaps between ‘old skool’ and ‘new skool’ music.
The show will also feature a unique mix of panellists including; professional DJ and Talent Manager for ViacomCBS Networks Africa – Alex Hughes; award-winning record producer – MasterKraft; Singer-songwriter – Falana; as well as On-Air Personalities, Charity ‘Cha Cha’ Owoh of Hot FM and Osikhena ‘Osi Suave’ Dirisu of Beat FM.
