He made the announcement of the upcoming musical roster on both Instagram and Twitter prior, inviting fans to tune in. The fixings of his playlist was a fusion of released and unreleased music from his colleagues as well as some special guests.
Protoje has a curated playlist dubbed Fresh and Clean currently on Spotify that features several conscious artistes like himself, along with Chronixx, Koffee, Skip Marley as well as new comers Lila Iké, Jaz Elise, Naomi Cowan and Sevana to name a few.

Although many fans tuned in, it wasn’t the turn out others expected, one Twitter user during the live tweeted, “@Protoje live on ig with only 700+ ppl watching is a travesty. Yall tune in #Freshandcleanplaylist.”
