Elaine appreciates Spotify as she was honoured as the EQUAL Africa Artist for October.
“Honoured to be the Spotify #EQUALAfrica Artist of the month,” she tweeted
The South African singer was selected by the streaming platform to join the aforementioned programme which is aimed at shinning women across the globe.
“RADAR Africa Alumni Elaine is one of the talented female artists from Africa who are making notable inroads across the continent, and around the world. As an artist who is steadily building an audience as a global recording company signee, we are glad to have her join the EQUAL programme and we are happy to be able to provide her with valuable resources, tools and support that we hope will further bolster her career,” says Spotify’s head of music for sub-Saharan Africa, Phiona Okumu.
Elaine who recently marked the 3rd year anniversary of her debut project, Elements appreciated Equal Africa for amplifying the voices of women.
“My biggest motivator has been watching women flourish, in a world full of standards and expectations that are meant to limit and box them in. We carry the culture and play a huge role in transforming the way music is received and consumed. It feels great to be a woman and it feels great to be in this industry. Moreover, I’m grateful to the EQUAL Africa program for amplifying the voices of game-changing African women.” says Elaine.
