Top 10 African countries that produce the best music.

1. Nigeria.

Nigeria needs No introduction because the name of every music lover in and out of Africa is Wizkid, Davido, Burna Boy, Yemi alade, Tiwa Savage, etc. Nigeria biggest influence in African music is no surprise because lets be honest, "Naija-no-de-carry-last". They have the numbers and they have learned to own their craft. Some of the popular hit songs from Nigeria include 'lie' by kiss Daniel, Peru by fireboy, bounce by Rema, Brown skin girls by Wizkid, Holy ground by davido, etc

2. South Africa.

Among all African styles of music, the South African style of music is the most unique because you can tell music is South African just by the beat. With huge artists like Hugh Masekela, Rebecca malope, Nasty-C, Brenda Fassie, Lucky Dube, South Africa is definitely a force to be reckoned with. The sheer number of viral songs South Africa has produced over the years is uncountable including Jerusalema, woza, etc.

3. Ghana.

Ghana is a pioneer of African rhythm and style as they have contributed greatly to music in the field of high life, rap, and afrobeat. Ghana has over the years given the world viral dance moves and hit songs like 'Touch it by kidi, No fugazi by Sarkodie, dollar on You by Kwami Eugene, etc.

Some of their popular artists include Sarkodie, fuse ODG, kwami Eugene, kidi, shatta wale, etc. Now, we must admit that despite Ghana's massive contribution in pushing African music, there is still much work needed to be done for the country to get to the top of the chat.

4. Ivory Coast.

It is sometimes difficult to differentiate music from Ivory Coast and Congo and that is just because Ivorians are geniuses in blending music from different parts of the world. They are famous for giving the world mapouka (dance) and Alpha Blondy (artist).

5. D.R.C.

The things Congo has done to African music blows my mind and if you have seen a tik-tok video of a girl whining her waist then chances are, that music is from Congo. And the reason why rap music isn't doing so well in Africa is simply that it is not danceable. The popular type of music of the Congolese is called the Lingala.

6. Tanzania.

Kenya and Tanzania are like Ghana and Nigeria without the Jollof Wars. The style of music in Tanzania is bongo Flava and afrobeat, and the most popular Tanzanian artist whose music is played around the world is Diamond Platinumz. But if you live your life in the fast lane, then you will love singeli, which is the most recent style of music that is popular with younger generations at a speed of 200 to 300 beats per second.

7. Kenya.

Kenya has contributed a lot to African sounds and if you haven't added any Kenyan song to your playlist then you are definitely missing out. The most popular styles here are gengestone, kapooka bongo, and afrobeat, not forgetting Africa super weight artist Khaligraph Jones.

8. Cameroon.

If you are a finicky lover of African music, then music from Cameroon should appeal to you. The popular type of music in Cameroon is makossa, but artists like Fhish, Mr. Leo, and Mimie, are just a few of the talented artists dropping hit after hit. Speaking of which, the biggest hit to have ever come out of Cameroon is zangalewa.

9. Uganda.

Uganda's music has come a long way despite the country's inability to produce music that hits internationally. They produce more of a dance hall music than any other genre, but some artists like Bebe Cool have found ways of blending dance hall music with afrobeat called Kidandali. So if you are a fan of dancehall music then you will like many artist like Eddy Kenzo, Slick Stuart, and Roja.

10. Angola.

You all remember where Angola out of nowhere drop the Banga 'Prakata Tumba' after it was immediately followed by windeck, and fat Joe even got in on that song. So if you are imagining countries that produce sound music in Africa we can't slip on Angola. Coming forward to the present, the biggest artists dominating Angola right now are Apology and Riu Orlando.
