See our top picks for the African music content that made it on the blog this week.

We realize our site cycles through an, at times, overwhelming number of videos, tracks, remixes and mixtapes from a deluge of African/diaspora 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:
