2016 is gone and over, but we are still reminiscing the good ‘chunes’ that make Ghana the best destination to experience Christmas. Here are the 10 songs that made the festive season lit…if you missed out on these tunes, here is a recap of the songs that were club bangers.
10. ARTICLE WAN- SOLO
‘Solo’ by Article Wan is a local fun track with a dance vibe which was patronized by local pubs, spots and beaches. Article Wan is young emerging artiste in Ghana who made his debut “Solo” a smash hit.
9. FALZ- SOFT WORK
“Falz the Bahd Guy” is a 26 year old Lagos born musician, who put his law degree aside to pursue his music passion, released ‘Soft work’. For those who don’t know him, he plays ‘Segun’ in the popular series “Jennifer’s Diary”. His bold move to switch careers has turned out to be a great one. “Now i’m a rap star mummy i’m popular“…
8. DJ VISION FT. A.I – GRIND
The new trend of DJ’s abandoning their turntables for the mic continues to thrive as DJ Vision of YFM released ‘Grind’ which features A.I. Its got a bounce to it, which is almost specifically made for clubs. It was produced by Ghana’s fast emerging beat-maker, Kuvie.
7. MEDIKAL FT. SISTER DERBY – TOO RISKY
“Too Risky” by Medikal is a dope tune which featured Sister Derby. The love of this song by the AMG fans in Ghana made this song hit the top 10. Medikal is a 22 year old rapper making huge strides in GH rap. His bold provocative style always stands out, and it reflects the young blood movement of AMG business, which his headed by none-other but Chris Waddle.
6. KOFI KINATA – CONFESSION
The Christmas season got even better with Kofi Kinata’s hot tune ‘confession’ which could never escaped the ears of young and old Ghanaians who could easily relate to the lyrics. It reminded those who have been there, about the dangers of driving home drunk. Ewurade begye steernu…
5. PATORANKING FT. SARKODIE – NO KISSING
‘Tis is the season of love. But No Kissing!?!? In the month that weddings are rife and the Christmas love and emptying your bank account is the norm, all in an attempt not be single… Sarkodie and Patoranking thought it best to be the period of NO KISSING. How can you tell me not to kiss my bae!? Great song tho…
4. SARKODIE – RICH NIGGA SHIT (RNS)
King Sark at it again…after almost 10 years of grinding, have perfected his craft, Sarkodie can be said to have amassed enough cash to let you know how the big boys get down. ‘RNS’ is a rap song by Africa’s best rapper and the instrumental too is bonkers. However, this top tune was only able to land on number 4.
3. TEKNO – PANA
Initially we didn’t understand all the Chinese writing in the video. Then the beat drop. Then we realized how much we didn’t care about the Chinese at all. The song was good. Too good. It made guys look for a Folake. They forgot all about Caro. There can not be a party without ‘Folake give me love oo’ in the DJ’s playlist…this is the intro to the pop music with a cool romantic sensation by Tekno who really exploded from nowhere it seems. He earned the number 3 spot because he is our perfect afro pop artist.
2. RUNTOWN – MAD OVER YOU
Runtown almost snatched the the prized number 1 spot as his song ‘MAd Over You’ took over all of Ghana as the festivities period was drawing to a close. This song was real popular especially with the ladies. I love this song and agree with the vote of gracing the 2nd spot on our top 10 Christmas bangers list. In the song, ‘Runtown’ falls in love with a Ghanaian girl who he admires and hopes she can prepare the Ghanaian delicacy ‘waakye’ and hopes her love can be sweeter than ‘Shito’…lol that punch line got me laughing at his creativity.
1. DEE AJA – ONAAPO
No country on earth enjoyed the election season the way Ghanaians did. Ghanaians danced their way into 2017 in grand style with undoubtedly the hottest political campaign tune to hit our political sphere ever. “Onaapo” is our numero uno/ first and best tune to hit the streets of Ghana in years. It was a song to help the then sitting President, Mahama to galvanize his campaign and win more people over. As it tunred out, the plan backfired but the song stood the test of time and has been played at baby christenings, weddings, birthdays, parties and even funerals. Dee Aja is the maestro behind this song. It was played and patronized by the two most popular political parties in Ghana during and after the election.
