ArcGIS doesn't use Bing Maps as imagery basemap since December 31 2013. If you want to use Bing Maps in ArcGIS, you must purchase a license key from Microsoft (As far as I know it's extremely expensive). See this link to see the sources Esri uses for its imagery basemap. You should expect a 1 m resolution for rural places in Africa.

OSM has a very powerful API and the cost is $0.00 per year and $0.00 per year after that. Enterprise use is the same cost. Do you mean ESRI Javascript API? If not you missed ESRI.

My understanding is you now need a key from Microsoft to complete this task. Here is the link to request a key and explanation on how it works once you get the key, it includes instructions for online use. You need to install an update as well. The link to this is above as well.

Looking into the plugin there appears you can also pass in options when creating the key. One of the options is called "type" and is set to Aerial by default. That is Bing Maps without labels. To get labels you need to change this to AerialWithLabels. For example: baseMapUrl = new L.BingLayer(bing_key, {type: 'AerialWithLabels'});
