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.
