Anonymous: your youtube playlist should be named "Best Nigerian& South african music videos of 2013"
Yes, the majority of videos are from there but from my personal point of view, those were the songs I was exposed to the most (and liked, there’s not a single song on there I don’t enjoy listening to) because, let’s face it, SA and Naija dominate the African music scene (at least in sub-Saharan Africa).
I did include diaspora based artists such as Stromae, Laura Mvula, Kwabs, Benjamin Clementine, YADi and Kae Sun.
Then there are non-SA and Naija artists like R2Bees, Tinariwen, Lizha James, Ahmed Soultan, Amadou & Mariam, Alec Lomami and Just A Band.
Feel free to send recommendations my way though!
