1M+ First-Level Subdivisions of Africa on a Map

IAB's quiz All First-Level Subdivisions of Africa on a Map is already challenging enough if you remove the lesser populated subdivisions! How many of the first-level subdivions of Africa with more than a million inhabitants can you name?

Try the whole series here!
Type-ins are stricter: "Newfoundland" would not be enough for "Newfoundland and Labrador", if it were included in this quiz.
Not counting the areas in the Western Sahara under control of the SADR
With year of census, or estimate or projection, in case of no recent census.

Good job putting all of this together. I only wish that you'd be a little more consistent with type-ins. For example, just Rabat and Tangiers are accepted, but not Fes, Casablanca or Marrakech. (And also not the standard type-in Addis Abeba).
