Where to listen/download African Music (Updated)

The most asked question I receive on Tumblr is “where do you get all your African music from?”. So, I decided to update and expand my original list. Here’s a more comprehensive and up-to-date list of sites and blogs. Take note that majority of these sites post Nigerian/West African music, although there are few on here that post music from all regions of Africa.
