2017 saw some of Africa’s biggest hip hop stars cross over into international stardom. With musicians like Davido, WizKid, Tiwa Savage, Shatta Wale, and Patoranking, to name a few, Afro-Hip Hop is being watched on a world stage. Dawning the hottest fashion trends like Gucci & Louis Vuitton , driving Rolls Royce and Fiat, African artists have become major players lyrically and financially, gaining a multitude of new fans and gaining respect from fellow A-list acts like Drake, Rihanna, French Montana, and Ed Sheeran. But the question remains, who will lead the music charts as we usher in a new year of music and new faces?
With insufficient and wildly scattered data for African artists the Afrozons team have created a list of musicians you should look out for this year. The list is comprised of musicians who have maintained a dominant presence on radio and television in Africa, the UK , and in the US. Give us your feedback today!!!
