JUSI I LOVE – Top 15 Music Videos 2012

TOP 15 MUSIC VIDEOSSince some years now high quality music videos have contributed a lot to the expansion of the African music market. Many African artists have started to use this instrument very successfully. It seems like that every year the level for music videos is set up one stage higher in many African countries. Although, generally, Nigerian, South African artists still prove to have a higher quantity of excellent videos, high quality visualizations are being produced in a growing number of African countries. East Africa has shown an exceptional rise in this aspect.

The quality of a music video is not only defined by the video itself but in how well the music is communicated through the video. Beautiful pictures alone do not make a great video, they need to be connected to melodies and lyrics of the song.
