The PMG have been commissioned to produce the UK’s first Afrobeats National Chart.

Presented by Eddie Kadi, the chart will air on BBC Radio 1Xtra every Sunday from 1pm and feature the top 20 tracks selected from downloads and streams from across the UK.

Creative Director Ray Paul said, “This is a significant moment for us as a company – the portrayal of culture and being able to deliver that authentically to the widest possible audience is something we always strive for, and working on the chart gives us the chance to do this even further. We have worked with Eddie for almost 20 years, and to team up again with him as the front man on this show is something special.”

The programme will air for the first time on Sunday 26th September, and will also be available on the BBC Sounds App.
