Music in Ghana is not all about making a hit song and just relaxing for event organizers to bill you for shows.
It requires a lot more of hard work and building of one’s brand to stay relevant all the times. Branding is one of the activities that pushes one to the top in any aspect.
Ghbase.com take a look at some 5 musicians who have worked well some few years ago,have a couple of hits but didn’t really do well to stay up in 2015. We could say that, they haven’t been billed to perform on any big stage in 2015 but they might have played a couple of shows; one that would considered normal, for artistes who are categorized as mainstream in the industry.
The ‘Kill Me Shy’ hitmaker hasn’t stayed up to his game in recent times of which most people think he is relaxed and not putting in much effort to stay on top. He currently has a single out with Sarkodie titled ‘Koko Sakora’. This track is already making waves and we hope Cryme will release more singles before this one too dies out since there are several good songs out there competing.
He had a couple of hit songs like ‘Mugu’ and ‘Mi Yadawo’ which features Castro. Akoo Nana has not been billed on any major show in 2015. We expect more from Akoo Nana this coming year.
3. Kwabena Kwabena
This gentleman is a great performer and is widely known for his amazing love songs. 2015 hasn’t been a very good year for the singer. Most of his fans expected to see him perform on some of the big events organized this year but things went otherwise.
Afriyie is one vocalist who is very talented and has worked very hard over the past years. Breaking up from a group to embark on a solo project can be very difficult sometimes. Afriyie received a couple of nominations at this year’s VGMA but haven’t performed on any major show.
5. Stay Jay
The ‘Shashii Wowo’ hitmaker has been mute for sometime until he released ‘All Be Lie’ some few months ago. He also hasn’t had the chance to perform on anybig platform in 2015. I personally think most artistes in Ghana should put more effort into doing good music and build their brand into a stronger one to stay relevant all the time, than relying on making a hit with a single and going to rest.
We wish them the very best in their endeavours and hope to hear amazing songs from them this coming year.
