    The Hugh Masekela Interview – 1987

    In 1987, Neville Legg interviewed then-exiled South African musician, Hugh Masekela. Performing with Paul Simon on his epic Graceland World Tour, Masekela spoke with Neville about his youth under Apartheid, his musical aspirations and intentions, and the implications of the cultural boycott on South African musicians. He also talks about the criticism of his involvement in the Graceland tour. We… Read more...

    The News

    An important part of Afrika Connexions, from its inception, was broadcasting news on the situation in South Africa. The need for a different type of news was made necessary by the mainstream media’s superficial coverage of the struggle and its penchant for presenting stories about the hunger and poverty of Africa – a model that still prevails today. The presenters of Afrika Connexions recognised… Read more...

    Maxwell Nemadzivhanani

    This interview first went on air in 1985 as part of an Afrika Connexions news segment, which was at 1pm every Sunday. Maxwell Nemadzivhanani was virtually a member of the Afrikan Connexions team, although his primary role was chief representative of the Pan African Congress of Azania. He travelled extensively in the position, attending meetings of the Non Aligned Movement as well as meetings of… Read more...

In 1986, Kenyan actress and poet Wanjiku Wa Kiarie performed her play Black Woman at the South… Read more...

    South African John Kani on Dreaming Under Apartheid

    One of South Africa's most famous actors talks with Paul Thusi in 1994. 'It’s a pleasure to be with you today, and I would like to say it is a great honour for me to tell you I have a real live native here at the studio with me from South Africa by the name of John Kani. But I am bound by custom and tradition not to address him by John Kani, since he saw the sun before I did. So customarily I am… Read more...
