Apple Music 1's ‘The Dotty Show’ features Dotty interviewing the artists lighting up Apple Music with the biggest tracks across hip-hop, dancehall, Afrobeats and everything in between, from across the globe.
On the last Wednesday of each month she hosts a special feature on her Worldwide Wednesdays show dedicated to the hottest sounds from Africa.
“It’s impossible to celebrate the global impact of Black music without spotlighting the abundant sounds coming out of the African continent", said Dotty. Our monthly playlist specials allow us to dedicate time to what is, to me, the most exciting and innovative music market in the world right now.”

Exclusive DJ Mix
This episode’s DJ Mix is courtesy of South African-Sudanese producer and engineer, Xplosive DJ. Influenced by Hip Hop, Soul and a plethora of African sounds, his music seamlessly incorporates all of these genres and he had this to say, “I try to produce the artist rather than the music, it's important for me to take the artist's sound to the next level instead of trying to change their sound.”
