For the next month, Polaris will be predominantly placed on Apple Music’s Up Next playlist, amplifying her voice to reach a wider mass of music lovers across East Africa and beyond.

Upon receiving the good news, Polaris excitedly shared, “I’m so honoured to be highlighted on Apple Music’s Up Next program.I am still taking it in.”

“To be included on a platform that has had so many of my favourite artists is surreal and I am grateful to be recognised for making a worthwhile contribution to East Africa’s music culture,” she added.

This comes weeks after she released her EP, Tufanye? which contemplates the different emotions that arise in romantic relationships like love, anger, pride and lust.

‘Tufanye?’ is Polaris’ take on neo-Afro R&B featuring warm and atmospheric production from Kenyan beatsmiths Dillie, Wuod Omollo Beats, and more.

Whether she is collaborating with industry giants or performing as a soloist, her honeyed R&B-soaked vocals are a delight to her fans, and her thirst for making great music is insatiable.

Apple Music’s Up Next playlist will be home for Polaris for a month, elevating her music to parts of the world that have not heard of her before.
