My favorite singer coming out of West Africa is Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun aka Wizkid, a 23-year old Nigerian.  Even though I hardly understand what he’s saying, his songs are consistent dance hits.  (There is a lot of cross-pollination among Ghanaian and Nigerian musicians.)  Most of the Ghanaians — except Sarkodie — are one-hit wonders.

R2Bees is a Ghanaian band that opened for Chris Brown when he came earlier this year
