Women DJs are adding spice to the mix in clubs across the continent. The Africa Report meets four pioneers who are changing perceptions as they stir it up behind the decks.
From Dakar to Durban, DJs have long been mixing music for the dancefloor, blending the best of South African quaito music with Angolan kuduru, Tunisian hip-hop and the hottest sounds emerging from Kinshasa, London and New York.
At nightclubs, fashion shows and dance parties across the continent, DJs are the essential ingredient for getting the crowd on its feet. But in most African countries DJing remains a male-dominated world where women have to fight to be considered equal.
Happily this is changing. DJettes or DJanes, as they are sometimes called, are on the rise.
