MUSIC: 30 Current Top Ghanaian Songs to Add to Your Afrobeats Playlist

I have been meaning to share this ever since I came back from my vacation in Ghana!

As a big time African music lover, or shall I say Afrobeats head (if this is even a thing lol), every year when I go to Ghana I make sure to pay close attention to what songs are poppin'. Although I always try to keep up with the latest and hottest Afrobeats songs from afar in Toronto, there are some limitations to what you can be exposed to online. I find there to be a major difference in ones ability to sense what songs are hot when they are actually in Ghana. You experiences first hand what songs are played the most at parties and on the local radio, what songs artists perform the most at shows as well as feel the crowds reaction each time a song is played. These are things simply listening to songs on YouTube cannot give you.

Furthermore, whenever I get back from vacation in Ghana I have some friends that always ask me to share a playlist of the current songs that were big in GH. Therefore, I thought why not share this on the blog as well!...

I also felt it necessary to share this as a lot of times feel disappointed when I attend some Afrobeats parties and they barely play any Ghanaian songs, and when they do they are quite old. I have had discussions with a few DJ's regarding this and the responses are either, they are not up to date with current songs so just play what they know, they don't realize the Ghanaian songs they are playing are old or they are afraid to introduce new songs at parties as they doubt the crowd will respond well to them. This is very understandable, so in that case here is my little contribution to provide more exposure for current popular Ghanaian songs for those who's may want to update their playlists as well as for those who may be less familiar with Ghanaian music and want to check it out.

This list and it's order consists of a mixture of the latest popular songs, songs that have may have been out for the past year but are still poppin' as well as songs that I personally like and groove to often. There are way more songs to share but I had to cut if off at some point.
