Africans playing music
As with many kids across the world, music is really important to lots of African children.

Hip-hop is popular - especially a type of hip-hop which has developed in South Africa called Kwaito.

Some of the Kwaito stars - like Arthur, MDU, Trompes and Chiskop - sell more records in the African charts than the huge international acts.
