2. One Corner - Patapaa Amisty

This is the most viral song for 2017 and it came from a then unknown Swedru-based artiste.

Popularised by its accompanying dance, this song transcended the shores of Ghana and instantly made the artiste, Patapaa a fan favourite.

Though the whole one corner craze has lost some steam, it sure qualifies to be here.

3. Sponsor - Ebony

Female Dancehall star, Ebony seems to have taken the music scene by storm with hits upon hits it's year.

But there is no denying that this is the biggest of them of all.

Whether it's her often controversial stagecraft or the lyrics of the song, Sponsor has been liked by music lovers since it was released and they are yet to reject it

4. Bronya - Wutah

After almost 10 years as solo artistes, music duo Wutah needed a very catchy song to make their reunion meaningful and aptly brought Bronya.

This song, which's title translates as Christmas is perfect for any joyous occassion.

The only problem, however, is that, it should have been released somewhere in November to make it the 'official' X'mas song.

5. Obi Agye Obi Girl - Captain Planet ft. Kofi Kinaata

Captain Planet after taking a break from the 4x4 group laboured to produce a hit track and his labour seem not to have been in vain.

Currently the hottest track in Ghana, the song gets popular by the day and has already spawned some interesting covers including one mocking Bukom Banku over his defeat to Bastie Samir.

It's easy to sing and teasing lyrics will ensure that your dance floor is full anytime you play it.

6. Total Cheat - Fancy Gadam ft. Sarkodie

Fancy Gadam literally won the 2017 VGMAs new artiste of the year without a very known song in areas other than the North.

Total Cheat, however, changed that and brought him a truly national hit.

With King Sark on it, you sure know it will be a very good song and it is.

7. Pain Killer - Sarkodie ft Runtown

Sarkodie released a number of hit tracks in 2017 but this one surely tops them all.

Another one of the very good Ghana-Naija collaborations, it was interesting to hear Runtown singing some few lines in Twi.

With a theme on relationship, the song has been popular all year round.

8. Odo - KiDi

This song from the new kid on the block, KiDi has gained attention since its release spurring the upcoming artiste to instant fame.

'Odo' has been so successful that the 24-year-old Lynx Entertainment singer has had to do a remix with such big artiste like Davido and and Mayorkun.

The song would easily qualify as the most played song at Ghanaian weddings 2017 and not even criticisms that the lyrics is childish has affected that.

9. Mama Boss Papa (Yimama) - Lil Win ft Young Chorus

Kumawood actor, Kwadwo Nkansah 'Lil Win' had been frolicking with music with appearances on some of Guru's songs, it is this song which made him a musician in his own right.

The danceable nature of the song and its accompany hilarious video has endeared music lovers.
