3 African Countries That Produce The Best Music [PHOTOS]

1. Nigeria

Nigeria has to be the first country on this list. Nigeria has solidified its position in history as one of the best Afrobeat singing nations, thanks to international superstars such as Wizkid, Davido, and Burna Boy.

Our sound has evolved from a regional sound to one that is now known and admired internationally.

With new school artists like Rema, Fireboy Joeboy, and Omah Lay gaining popularity, Nigeria appears to be retaining its top spot for longer than expected.

2. Ghana

The Ghanaian music business has gotten a lot of attention throughout the years thanks to the self-proclaimed king of dancehall Shatta Wale and other prominent Ghanaian musicians like Sarkodie and Stonebwoy.

They also have a number of up-and-coming acts who are now pushing the bar for music in their region. Gyakie and Black Sherif, for example, could challenge Nigerian artists for the top spot in the near future if they keep up the pace.

Tanzania (number three)

Tanzania is the last country on this list. Despite the fact that they have some great musicians in their country, the biggest barrier stopping their music from going global is that they rarely sing in English.

Diamond Platnumz, Harmonize, and Zuchu are some of Tanzania's most popular musicians right now.
