Only about 40% of the music on the radio is South African. More is American. Same with TV. Although I’ve only heard this in conversation, someone put the percentage at about 60% of TV coming from American shows. Part of this helps to explains Oprah’s reign here. She’s on twice a day, at least 5 days a week. And at times, with different sectors of society here, people mimic what they see in the US. And we know Oprah rules in the US as well.
