Rapper King Kaka is the only Kenyan artist making it on Apple Music’s 2018 A-list of African music with his latest club banger “Dundaing.”

The list of 49 songs comprises of African songs that have made waves in the year 2018.

Nigerian artists dominate the list with at least 19 songs featured, followed closely by Ghana, with 13 songs and South Africa at a distant third with seven songs.

Some of the prominent names from Nigeria appearing on the list include Tiwa Savage, Davido, Wizkid, Tekno, Mr Eazi and Kizz Daniel.

21 year old South African rapper Nasty C also made the list alongside Tanzania’s Mbosso with his “Hodari” hit.
