And yes, the theatrical is even to be found in theatre buildings and scripts from Johannesburg’s splendid Market Theatre to Addis Ababa’s National.

African culture is functionally linked to the popular media forms -- radio, TV, and the press -- since they played a very significant role in their struggles against colonialism and exploitation. Since time immemorial, the media have helped to rescue, incorporate, preserve, and mediate elements which serve the interests of these popular classes.
