YEN.com.gh is reflecting on what happened in Ghana's showbiz industry.
And as part of the series, we have put together a list of the biggest Ghanaian hits in 2020. So sit back and go through the list which is no particular order.
1. Putuu - Stonebwoy:
Stonebwoy's Putuu was classified by many as gibberish but it was undoubtedly one of the biggest songs of 2020.
Released in the middle of the year, it has remained one of the biggest party songs if the first on the list.
2. Open Gate - Kuami Eugene:
A master at producing songs for weddings and other joyous occasions, Kuami Eugene did his thing again with Open Gate.
The song has remained among the top trending songs since it was released.
3. Say Cheese - KiDi:
Sugar daddy, as KiDi's fans prefer to call him, gave us sugar on this one and it has remained a big song since it was released about seven months ago.
4. La Hustle - Medikal:
The title of Medikal's song, La Hustle, has become the number street anthem/jargon in the year just after four months of its release. That should tell you how big the song has been.
5. Ataa Adwoa - Bosom P-Yung:
Bosom P-Yung released Ataa Adwoa between the end of 2019 and the start of 2020. The video actually surfaced on January 1 and it became an instant hit.
Helped by the funny nature of the video and story of the song, Ataa is one of the most recognisable songs within the year.
6. No Dulling - Keche ft Kuami Eugene:
It is no fluke that Kuami Eugene is the reigning music artiste of the year in Ghana. Everything he has touched within the year has been big and Keche's No Dulling is one of them.
The song has been making a lot of waves since it was released.
7. Adom - Diana Hamilton:
Diana Antwi Hamilton is the biggest gospel music artiste of the year and this happens to be her biggest song.
Just like many of her previous releases, Hamilton did not disappoint on this one.
8. Emergency - Wendy Shay:
Wendy Shay is mostly known for high tempo songs which are danceable but teaming up with Bosom P-Yung on Emergency, she went slow. And it turned out great.
9. Anadwo - Sarkodie:
Sarkodie got King Promise on this love song and it proved to be a magical one.
10. Posti Me - Akwaboah:
While Akwaboah is highly rated as a songwriter, his songs hardly feature in such lists because he tends to do cool music.
But with Posti Me, Akwaboah got a crossover appeal and it really gave the song a deserving popularity.
11. Sore - Yaw Tog:
2020 has seen a resurgence of the music scene in the Ashanti region thanks to the trending Kumaerica movement.
One of the biggest songs arising out of the Kumerica movement has been Yaw Tog's song titled, Sore.
13. Akweley Take - Shatta Wale:
Shatta Wale did not have many hit songs in 2020 and according to him, he was focused on doing songs to the taste his Jamaican followers.
That notwithstanding, he still had a good one in Akweley Take which was cast in the mould of his 2019 hit Borjor.
14. Happy Day - Sarkodie:
Even though Sarkodie released Happy Day which features Kuami Eugene in late November, it has become one of the biggest songs of the year.
The song's popularity has buoyed by the political slant in one of the rapper's verses which led to the song being tagged as an endorsement for Nana Akufo-Addo before the 2020 elections.
15. Nominate - Stonebwoy:
Stonebwoy's Nominate featuring American singer, Keri Hilson, happens to be the biggest single off his much-touted Anloga Junction album.
With the exploits made by the album, there is no need to say much about how big its number one single was.
16. Enjoyment - KiDi:
Released in the early part of the year, KiDi's song has been one of the songs for 'enjoyment' this year.
17. Otan Hunu - Dead Peepol:
This song happens to be one of the street anthems for 2020 and it is no wonder it birthed a star-studded remix featuring Medikal, Kuami Eugene, Fameye, and others.
