Nicky B began ‘The World Show’ in 1997, when Kaya FM was launched as the first black-owned, independent radio station in the newly democratic South Africa.

Informative, and largely pan-African, this is a musical journey that travels across continents and timelines. With in-depth interviews and features, it’s a very well-established show with a loyal listenership.

From 1993 to 2000 she was one of the key artists to launch the Public Art Movement in South Africa’s new democracy, and over this period she facilitated more than 70 public art projects across the country and internationally.
