Well, it's old timey now and it has strong folk roots; but strictly speaking, most of it's not true African folk or traditional music.
For one thing, the primary instrument is the guitar, which was brought to Africa by Europeans. The styles also vary considerably with West African call and response vocals mixing with popular European and American styles similar to show tunes, country music, folk ballads and more.
