Having left South Africa as a youth to study radio and television engineering in England, a life-changing experience occurred in Zambia, a country to which I had been recruited after completing my studies in 1965. A return to South Africa was out of the question as the country was under strict apartheid regulations; a black engineer would have great difficulty finding employment since the only broadcaster was the state-owned SABC.

When the movie ‘Happiness Is A Four-Letter Word’ came out on the 19th of February, I knew instantly that I had to see it, not only because it had a great cast, but seeing an authentic South African romantic drama seemed appealing to me.

It took me about a minute of serious reflection to decide whether or not an African content focused company was a good idea. I took a further two, very long seconds to consider the pros and cons of starting such a company with a guy I was dating. It eventually became very clear to me that TransAfrica Media was a brilliant idea.

Since this is our first edition of The TransAfrican, it’s only fitting that we look at an artist who’s about to make serious waves in the African music scene – after all The TransAfrican is an extension of TransAfrica radio which is all about celebrating African excellence.

This week we look at Tanzanian born singer, composer, and rapper, Tiggs Da Author, who is currently based in London. The first time we as TransAfrica Radio started paying attention to him was when he dropped his song ‘Georgia’ mid 2015. From there we never looked back. ‘Georgia’ immediately grabs your attention – it has that old soul feel to it. It’s catchy and forces you to sing along.
