Positive Black Soul (PBS) is one of the first rap and hip hop
outfits from Africa that had signed a contract for an important European label. In 1994,
they already worked with Baaba Maal, who was under contract
by the same label.
Since then, PBS released several cassettes in Senegal, but due to contract problems they were not
available in the rest of the world. It lasted until 2001 before a second CD album was released world wide.
The popularity of hip hop in the whole of Africa is considerable, and especially in Senegal, there are numerous groups. Besides PBS, Daara-J and Pee-Froiss are the most famous bands, but other bands, such as Bideew Bou Bess and Djoloff have also released albums outside of Senegal.
In 2002, Didier Awadi released a solo album
