KAMPALA, UGANDA | NOW THEN DIGITAL — Spotify’s EQUAL Africa program continues to recognize and celebrate the exceptional talent of African female artists, with South African amapiano sensation Khanyisa being announced as the ambassador for July.
In a male-dominated industry, Khanyisa’s journey to success has been marked by her determination and musical prowess, making her an inspiration for aspiring artists.
Championing African Female Artists

The artist expressed, “Facing the challenges of being a woman in a male-dominated industry demanded years of determination. From fear to intimidation, I’ve become courageous stepping out of my comfort zone. [God’s] strength drives me, turning barriers into opportunities. I am a living proof of His grace, flourishing as I carve a new trail for women.”
A Musical Journey to Success
Khanyisa’s musical journey took a significant turn when she earned a spot as one of the top five finalists in the Vodacom NXT LVL music competition in 2017.
