African Spice Blend is very popular. People in West Africa, especially in Nigeria, love them so much. The basic ingredients are chili pepper, onion, ginger root, black peppercorns, garlic, and thyme leaves. This may be used in soups or stews, but if you choose to use it as a dry rub, do not add salt because the ingredients already have enough salt.

African food has many similarities to Ethiopian cuisine (native to Africa), the main one being the use of spice mixtures like berbere (an Ethiopian spice mix that includes chili peppers, garlic, salt, basil, and korarima), niter kibbeh (spiced clarified butter), and awaze. These spices are mixed with various meats to flavor them alone or cooking in various stews.
