In the past years, the African pop music scene was garnished so well with both male and female musicians touching our hearts with records that have gone on to grab major recognitions outside the continent and within. But, the strength and growth was seen vividly when the female counterpart took the game on and proved their might just as vast as our African male artists.
The likes of Tiwa Savage (Nigeria), Yemi Alade (Nigeria), Victoria Kimani (Kenya), Mzvee (Ghana), Busiswa (South Africa), to name but a few, have made the contemporary pop music scene a delight for many music enthusiasts around the world. Zealous fans of the genre are often left yearning for more authentic works from African female artists each year and these queens have never failed them.
Hence, on our GA Playlist for today, we have curated a handful of singles from above-mentioned queens for your listening pleasure.
