The list of artists includes Santrinos Raphael x Zeynab (Togo), Burna Boy (Nigeria), Master KG x Zikode (South Africa), Jah Prayzah (Zimbabwe), Simi (Nigeria), Sauti Sol (Kenya), Eddy Kenzo (Uganda), Sha Sha/DJ Maphorisa/Kabza de Small (South Africa), Bosom P Yung/Wendy Shay (Ghana), and Diamond Platnumz (Tanzania).  

Special reports from Ghana and Kenya unveil the best Covid-19 awareness songs, music highlights and trends of 2020 from those regions. We present our Top Song of the Week from 2020 by Calema (Sao Tome & Principe), and also take an exciting journey into zouglou territory in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire where that iconic music is alive and thriving still in 2020.
