In the list above it is observed that countries like Nigeria, Ivory coast and Congo are the frequently topping artistes countries.


From Bikutsi to Makossa, Soukouss, Rumba and even Afro beat, these singers are bringing a breath of fresh air to the global african scene in all its diversity. They also contributed to the popularization and the export of the African savoir-faire worldwide. Had you needed more conspicuous proof of the excellent african music market health, hip hop tycoon Jay Z and some of his record executives recently went on a talent scouting spree in Nigeria. Moreover, major music companies such as Universal opened a new label dedicated to artists and producers from Africa called Island Africa. French business mogul Vincent BollorĂ© who is now head of Vivendi Group decided to build 10 olympias (concert venues) in Africa as well. Suffice to say that these elements blatantly shows the exponential growth of the music market and the artistic development of local artists.
