For Independent Creatives: 5 African magazines to send your press kit to  

As an artist, good marketing practices and release structure go a long way in bringing your music to a larger audience. Sending your press kit to journalists and magazines before your release date is a marketing practice you should imbibe! 

What is a press kit? 

A press kit is a ready-made set of marketing materials that contains information about you as the artist and your work. It is sent to media representatives for use in marketing when a release is announced. 

Why should you send your songs to magazines? 

Press kits make it simple for journalists to find out about you and your music while also giving them access to images and promotional materials they can use to write a featured piece about you.

With an exceptional press kit, you catch a journalist’s eye and make them want to write a story or conduct an interview with you.

Magazines share your sound with wider audiences!  

Sending your press kit to magazines in different regions gives you access to those regions, don’t limit yourself or your art, you don’t know where your loyalist fans are lurking.
