About the African Accent

Voquent is a voice actor agency based in the UK providing for all your voice talent needs! English speaking African voice actors are sought after for a vast range of voice-over projects.

Africa may be one continent, but it is home to 55 African states, with diverse cultures and an estimated 2000 spoken languages. The principal languages on the continent include Arabic, French, and English. English is frequently used as a common language for communication between nations and for doing business. With many Africans speaking English as a 2nd or 3rd language, the benefits of using an English voice actor can be huge.

Filtering your search based on your project requirements is what Voquent is all about. Listen to authentic African voice actors' tagged samples and shortlist in mere minutes!

More About African Voices

Africa is home to 1.3 Billion people (2021). 

Swahili (Kenya and Tanzania), Amharic (Ethiopia) and Yoruba (Nigeria and West Africa) are the top 3 languages spoken on the continent.

English is only spoken natively by around 15 million people in Africa. Within African English is mainly used as a language of trade. Outside Africa, many charities and businesses want to identify themselves with the continent by using an authentic African accent for their video and multimedia projects.

The most important thing is to know the desired country of origin.

At Voquent the voice actor agency we’ll always try to find an English speaking voice artist native to the target country. If this is not possible we can widen the search to find a voice talent from the wider region. E.g. North, West, East or South African countries tend to have shared languages and accents. There are many talented African Voice Actors!
