In celebrating youth culture, MTV Base Africa has launched a new show titled ‘Dance Nation,’ which showcases South Africa’s explosive dance and music culture scene alongside African house beats.
The show launched on 17 June will air every Friday from 17.30 CAT for 30 minutes, with eight episodes featuring players in genres such as gqom and amapiano lined-up in the first season. It will be hosted by singer Busiswa, choreographer Sne Mbatha, and DJ and reality show star Miss Party.
“I am so excited to be a part of Dance Nation season one,” Busiswa said. “As an artist, I know how important it is to showcase fresh undiscovered talent to the world. This kind of TV viewing allows dancers, artists and creatives alike in the business of entertainment to draw ideas and inspiration for their body of work. I am on the show to further encourage our youth to believe in their talents and use them to create a better world. Dance and arts are a medicine to the people.”
MTV Base Africa says Dance Nation is set to be an all-round celebration of a holistic expression into the current state of inter-cultural influence, adding that the show offers an interesting look at how the various dances and music genres are interpreted by different social and cultural expressions in the country.
“Youth culture is an important element of our programming initiatives and what better way to showcase the diversity of pop culture climate in Africa,” Paramount Africa senior vice president and general manager Monde Twala said. “Dance Nation is not just a dance showcase, it is an honour of the legacy of dance expression passed on from generation to generation. This is a recognition of our evolution in influencing culture across the globe.”
