Songs made in Africa by Africans are the most exciting works of art you should listen to. With a combination and fusion of afro-beats, juju, fuji, Zulu and highlife, the beats remain dominant across the globe. No wonder the likes of Fela Kuti, Angelique Kidjo, Amankye Dede, Kojo Antwi, Sunny Ade were successful in their time.

Moving on to the 21st century, artists of that generation have continued the legacy and even raised the bar, garnering collaborations across the globe. Through this, they have topped international music charts and opened the gates of opportunity for themselves and others to perform outside Africa.

These African songs made it to top music charts.
