We roundup the best African music released this week in our Weekend Burners theme.

We realize our site cycles through an, at times, overwhelming number of videos, tracks, remixes and mixtapes from artists that not everyone is familiar with — in fact, we’ve gotten a large amount of reader feedback stating so. With Weekend Burners we aim to address that by highlighting our choices of the best music content that made it on the blog throughout the week. Get ‘em below straight from the Okayafrica bunker:
