REVOLT is available to the continent through Kwesé's multi-platform offering including linear TV, mobile app, web and streaming services, delivering premium entertainment to viewers anywhere, anytime, on any screen.

"When I introduced REVOLT, I wanted to build a platform that would inspire creators around the world and open doors for artists on a global scale," stated REVOLT Chairman Sean Combs. "To launch in Africa is a huge honor for me and this deal illustrates the true impact REVOLT has on the culture here at home and abroad."

Viewers can enjoy exclusive shows such as The Breakfast Club, a daily topical radio-style TV program reporting on the world's biggest music stories and news, REVOLT Sessions which showcases intimate musical performances from the world's most loved artists and new undiscovered talent, as well as the REVOLT Music Conference which features an unprecedented line-up of keynote speakers, panellists, and performers who converge in Miami to help viewers understand and navigate the music business. This month, REVOLT's programming schedule will also include the 5th annual Global Spin Awards, recognizing music's top DJs from around the world, along with the network's #BlackExcellence programming in celebration of Black History Month.

"Our new agreement with Kwesé marks the next frontier outside of our distribution in the United States and the Caribbean," said REVOLT Executive Vice President and Head of Content Distribution, ‪James Brown. "This deal reinforces how our core programming strategy, which is centered around music, resonates around the world. We are thrilled to be working with a powerhouse such as Kwesé TV to bring the No. 1 name in music to the continent of Africa."
