#NowPlaying: ‘Melanin’ by Modise Sepeng (Negritude Republic)



Modise Sepeng is a Johannesburg-based graphic designer and visual artist, working to reflect on and draw attention to his heritage. Just over a year ago he began a project called Negritude Republic which includes illustrations of Nelson Mandela, an African Goddess, Steve Biko, Shaka Zulu and an Afro (Mona) Lisa. Modise’s plan is to grow Negritude Republic into a lifestyle brand, creating apparel that celebrates shared African history.


For this week’s edition of #NowPlaying, he’s put together a playlist for us titled ‘Melanin’ and it features a whopper of 14 tracks starting with ASA’s gorgeous track Bamidele all the way through to My Lady Frustration by Fela Kuti. Have a listen!
