About Highly Melanated
Highly Melanated was a weekly radio show Eva Lubulwa presented while in Australia. It aired between every Monday night at 10pm – 12am (AEDT) or 3pm – 5pm (EAT).
The melanin-soaked show celebrated the creative genius of people of colour locally, nationally and world wide.
Lubulwa – who was born in Melbourne to Ugandan parents – started the show in 2017 on 3RRR FM, one of Melbourne’s longest running community radio stations.
Her first engagement with radio resulted from my friend inviting her to do an arts show, and part of the promotion for the show was being interviewed on radio.
On her show, Eva managed to interview and promote several Ugandan talents including A Pass Bagonza, Judith Heard, Suzan Mutesi, Ykee Benda, Dre Cali, Spice Diana, Recho Rey and Dj Slick Stuart among others.
