so we could do well with more zim content. as you can see with the nigeria updates we did a while ago, that kind of content attracts a lot of people to the point that a lot of the forum users are from nigeria.
so, if you can write or you know someone who can write, do get in touch.
we do not have anything to pay (as we are an independent site with no sponsors) but it also won't cost you anything to publish, while printing a magazine does come with a lot of cost...

If you've picked up a "Hype" magazine from South Africa you'll know that its quality and most likely you got it at a nice price. Hype is available all the way up to Tanzania and comes out 5 times a year. Although it may not seem like it, they are very supportive of hip hop in Southern Africa, its just that they don't have any material because no one gives it to them. I've been fortunate enough to be in touch with the editor recenty I'm currently doing a series of features on Zim hip hop for Hype due to come out in this years publication. It as already begun, pick up Feb/March issue and check out DS and Soosh (ex MoVIP) on the CD, track 9. Its the same song on their facebook page.
If there are any Zim MCs interested in getting their material in hype, getting a short write up and possibly a feature article then give me a shout . Please note that this is for the love, I'm not getting paid for this, your music will not be used without your permission. Remember, Hype is an African magazine based in SA - check out the cats from Bots and Zambia in the last 2 issues. We're currently working on a distribution strategy to infiltrate Zim a bit more.
If you want to get in touch, holla at email@example.com or call me on +263912624819 or +27824991294

Anyways next step after an easily accesbile radio station, I'd say we need more access to television airplay for our music videos, documentaries, live performances etc. So its like we need to organize access to all electronic media first coz thats our primary tool for marketing ourselves. Print is step number 3 cause it provides additional martketing, not the primary one needed for artists to blow up..
