Best Answer

Skilled speakers such as Kwame Nkrumah in the Gold Coast, Jomo Kenyatta in Kenya, and Léopold Senghor in Sengal led independence movements in their countries. Such political pressure was enough to win independece in the British colonies that became Nigeria and Ghana, and in France's many Western African colonies.

Most countries gained independence by negotiation and agreement with colonial powers. The main exceptions were the Portuguese colonies of Angola, Mozambique, and Guinea-Bissau because the fascist Dictatorship in Lisbon wanted to maintain its absolute control of those countries.
