Today is Africa Day. So, we want to use this opportunity to celebrate all Africans irrespective of where you are. We celebrate you today. In celebration of the Africa Day on 25 May, 2020,  Deezer,  has revealed the top streamed artists in Africa. As Africans, we love African music and our global icons like as Eminem, Drake, Justin Bieber and Billie Eilish, and Soolking who takes the crown as the most streamed artist.

Local African artists are not left out. Nigeria’s Burna Boy, Egypt’s Amr Diab and South Africa’s Kabza De Small soar high as the top five most streamed African artists in Africa.

What makes Africa so special is the rich diversity that can be found everywhere – from our culture, languages, art and especially our unique music. At Deezer we want to celebrate and showcase the incredible artists and the music making waves across the continent and the world. Local artists across Africa continue to create new sounds that inspire fellow artists around the world,” said Sotiris Moldovanos, Deezer’s Music Editor for Africa.
