Legendary local jazz muso Hugh Masekela has been chosen to feature on the first SA cover of the newly launched Rolling Stone magazine. Rolling Stone South Africa editor-in-chief, Miles Keylock says: “It’s about respect — for our subject matter and our readers. We focus on real, in-depth pop culture and current affairs stories, not tabloid headlines and hype. You’re not going to get this kind of editorial content in any other magazine in South Africa.”
“We will be featuring kwaito alongside rock, jazz alongside pop, and hip-hop alongside house. That potential, to start cross-pollinating cultural conversations, is one of the most exciting things about the magazine.”
The magazine is set to feature in-depth, up-close and personal profiles on cultural icons and ground-breaking artists, current affairs and pieces on TV, radio, fashion and entertainment trends.
Rolling Stone SA will be available at the following outlets: Exclusive Books, CNA, Musica, Pick ‘n Pay Hyper, Look & Listen, Spar stores nationwide and select outlets.
