Over a couple of months, the song that has been on many lips in Ghana and some parts of the continent is Patapaa’s “One Corner”. The song slowly rose from the bottom and it is arguably the most popular song in Ghana now.
The song came to be associated with a hilarious dance that thrilled the whole nation. Many celebrities and public figures including Radio Show Host, Abeiku Aggrey Santana, Actress Emelia Brobbey, Yaw Dabo and a host of other stars exhibited their “One Corner” dance moves.
The song eventually went international to neighboring Nigeria where a video was recorded of some people in the studios of music producer Don Jazzy dancing to the song. A Nigerian wedding reception also went viral on the internet due to the couple’s “One Corner” dance.
The song’s popularity has influenced many music pundits into believing that Patapaa was likely to sweep a number of awards at the Next Ghana Music Awards. The predictions that came in suggested that the song was arguably going to be crowned the most popular song of the year with the artiste picking up the discovery of the year accolade.
However, some new songs have also hit the market and are likely to give “One Corner” a run for its money as they have also started gaining roots in the ears of many music lovers. The songs that are in contention to ‘face’ “One Corner” squarely are Captain Plaet and Kofi Kinaata’s “Obi Agye Obi Girl” and Galaxy’s “Woti Ati”.
Both songs are slowly gaining root on social media with some Facebook users already posting hilarious videos of themselves dancing to Galaxy’s “Woti Ati” which consists of a vigorous movement of the head.
There has also been a viral animation of a cartoon character dancing to Captain Planet’s “Obi Agye Obi Girl”. If both songs get the same publicity as Patapaa’s song, they would soon be on the lips of many Ghanaians.
