The 2018 edition of the All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) has been successfully climaxed at the Accra International Conference Centre with an awards ceremony.

Ghana's Kwaumi Eugene won the award for the Most Promising Artiste. And unsurprisingly, this has generated some controversy especially on Ghanaian Twittersphere.

Bu according to easily verifiable statistics available on YouTube, Lynx Entertainment artiste Kuami Eugene, is the biggest artiste in Ghana at the moment.

This is if you are calculating how many times his videos have been watched in the last 12 months.

For about a decade, artistes, critics and others concerned with entertainment have been known to use numbers from social media platforms to judge popularity.

In the last 12 months alone (from October 2017), Lynx Entertainment has posted five music videos for songs by Kuami Eugene on his behalf. This is discounting all other videos of the artiste in which he was featured or in a live stage performance.

The music videos are for Angela, Confusion, Meji Meji, Walaahi and Wish Me Well. Combined together, they have been watched over 18 million times as at the time of our checking.

Sarkodie's Adonai music video posted four years ago is perhaps the most watched Ghanaian content ever on YouTube.
