    Beninese literature had a strong oral tradition long before French became the dominant language.[22] Felix Couchoro wrote the first Beninese novel, L'Esclave in 1929.

    Post-independence, the country was home to a vibrant and innovative music scene, where native folk music combined with Ghanaian highlife, French cabaret, American rock, funk and soul, and Congolese rumba.

    Singer Angélique Kidjo and actor Djimon Hounsou were both born in Cotonou, Benin. Composer Wally Badarou and singer Gnonnas Pedro are also of Beninese descent.
