Listen to the Top Ghana Music of the Week
Shatta Wale – Cough Cough
The controversial dancehall act came through with a potential dance anthem, this one titled "Cough Cough". He sticks to the "Freedom" method of minimal repetitive lyrics, and an uptempo dance beat. One wonders though if the title is because of these Corona times.
J.Derobie - Back It
Young Ghanaian dancehall act and "Poverty" hitmaker J.Derobie came through with tune, his first for the year. It's a banging dancehall tune titled "Back It", and it came accompanied with creative visuals depicting the singer and a championship boxer.
Kwesi Arthur - Why (Nana Ama)
In light of a recent social media scandal involving superstar rapper Kwesi Arthur, leaked screenshots, and allegations of him mistreating women, he dropped this tune in response. In "Why (Nana Ama)" he sings, addressing the claims in this rather decent midtempo dancehall tune.
Samini - Dance With Me
Ghanaian reggae and dancehall veteran Samini issued this one, his first offering of brand new material for the year. "Dance With Me" is a Lee Milla produced smooth dancehall tune, and we hope he follows up with the video soon!
Ahtitude ft. Medikal, Kofi Mole, Bosom P-Yung & Joey B – Yaazo
AMG Business act Ahtitude drops a brand new hip-hop joint, a posse cut featuring a star-studded lineup, titled "Yaazo". On this one, he recruited label mate Medikal and rappers Kofi Mole, Bosom P-Yung, and Joey B to assist him in delivering this bar-heavy joint produced by UnkleBeatz.
