History Quiz / Pantheon: Most notable person per African country

Random History or Africa Quiz

Can you name the person born in each modern day country that scored highest on the Pantheon Global Historical Popularity score based on the popularity of their multi language wikipedia articles?

Quiz not verified by Sporcle

Pantheon measures 'Historical Popularity' based on how many different languages the people have wikipedia articles in, how many people visit those articles and how long ago the person was born (so someone who was born 1,000 years ago and still gets 400 page views a day would be rated ahead of some one with the same page views born in 2000). The ranking was done in May 2013.
