CNN releases another controversial list of Africa’s Biggest stars which got some notable names missing.
The list was officially released on the 20th of November and later updated on the 26th of November, probably adding and removing names to suit their ideal list. As at the time of this post, the top 10 names there are;
1. Burna Boy
2. Angelique Kidjo
3. Diamond Platnumz
4. Yemi Alade
5. Tiwa Savage
8. Sho Madjozi
9. Busiswa Gqulu
10. Mwila Musonda
