South Africa’s national broadcaster SABC has brought in a new quota system, requiring 90% of the music played on its 18 radio stations to be homegrown.
SABC says the move, which has been hailed by local musicians after years of campaigning, will promote South African culture and heritage.
There will be a special focus on jazz, kwaito (local house-style dance music), and gospel music, SABC says.
There is no limit to the amount of foreign music commercial stations play.
