AFRICA UNSIGNED: The Best Unsigned Musicians From The Continent


In case you need to expand your search for amazing new African artists beyond okayafrica (which we won't be encouraging often), then you need to check out Africa Unsigned!  The site allows anyone to check out and support the best unsigned artists from the African continent. Selected artists have the opportunity to upload their music and profile onto AfricaUnsigned.com, where you can then check out and support artists that you love. Once an artist hits the funding goal of $10,000, Africa Unsigned uses the budget towards the professional recording of a minimum of three tracks. Africa Unsigned is made up of producers, artists, managers and promoters that believe in the future of African music, and are located worldwide. After checking out their website, I, for one, am hoping that there will be a beautiful budding relationship between okayafrica and Africa Unsigned.
