    You can try emailing Brother Keidi at LibRadio....a few months back, he featured another brother who offers such products through his website. I can't remember his name right now or the specific courses/products he offers. Unfortunately, the mass market is very limited on materials devoted to indigenous African languages. Swahili is the language most easily found, and I suspect it's so because it's purported to be a trade/slave language pushed by Arabs. If you find any good sources in your research, please share.

    Do you know of similar sites for Igbo and other prominent indigenous African languages? Not interested in Swahili though.
