Since it is Friday, I might as well put up a few music videos.
 First up is the Kano remix of The Very Best’s “Julia” (remember earlier this year’s excellent “The Warm Heart of Africa” album?):
 Nigerian rapper Kel with “Waa waa alright.”
 Positive rap by a group of Ghanaian Hausa rappers:
 The very political Gabonese group Poetes Fyzik’s “Ce Que L’On Pense” [The video was shot at the recent 9th Annual Waga International Hip Hop Festival that took place in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso in October 2009]:
 The Montreal-based Waahli’s “Sundance.”
 I love Georgia Ann Muldrew’s “Roses” collaboration with Mos Def. Here she is doing it sans Mos.
 “Special Girl” by Bangs. I am not sure about this song. Whether it is a parody or whether Bangs, a Sudanese rapper, is serious.
 “Aquarias” from Brooklyn singer Iyadede (her parents are from Rwanda):
And at  the energetic French “Sinik Rai”:
