Okayafrica's Top 10 Music Videos of 2014

We list our Top 10 African Music Videos of the year, including strking clips from Nozinja, Sinkane, Fantasma, Ibeyi, Songhoy Blues and more.


It seems like videos are increasingly the preferred medium for artists, underground or commercial, to release their singles. It makes sense; music videos are immediate, eye-grabbing and tend to be better attention-holders in this frantic internet era. The acts we support are no different and, as such, 2014 hit us with a barrage of impressive visuals from songstresses, groups, rappers and producers across Africa and its diaspora. From psychedelic South African clips to anthemic Burkina Faso hip-hop videos and NYC-shot dance visuals, click through our picks for the Top 10 African Music Videos of the Year (listed in no particular order), featuring Sinkane, Blitz The Ambassador, Seun Kuti, Tinariwen, Joey Le SoldatNozinja, Songhoy Blues, and more.
