Another weekend is upon us now and YEN brings you something ‘light’ for your reading pleasure.
We take a look at five Ghanaian musicians who made the headlines in terms of producing hit songs but are now either struggling to make a comeback or their career has taken a nosedive.
These hitherto celebrities have now been totally forgotten and trust me Ghanaians don’t give a hoot about them now.
First on our list is Obrafour: He was the biggest thing to happen to Ghana music in the late 90s and 2000s. Obrafour is one of the god-fathers of music genre Hiplife.
The ‘Pae mu ka’ hit maker is loved by Ghanaians for his clean and clarity of lyrics. Obrafour's fame transcends the borders of Ghana, as he has performed in Europe as well as the US.
And yes, he also helped bring into the limelight artiste likeTinny and Dogo to mention a few.
Next on the list is Abrewa Nana: She was household name in Ghana. Abrewa Nana is the first female artist in the Ghanaian music industry to have her own album in the contemporary HIP-LIFE category.
In the 2000s “SAGAA” was a banger on Ghanaian radio and night clubs.
Asem came onto the music scene in 2007 with his famous hit track “Give Me Blow”. His style was different and unique leading him to win the hearts of Ghanaians.
However, his fame came to an abrupt end shortly after his controversial rape saga. He has since tried a comeback but it seems not to be working.
Tic Tac is another pioneer of the Hipline genre. He began his music career while a secondary school student in Accra.
Tic Tac modeled his style after his idol Busta Rhymes. He has about 6 albums to his name.
The ‘Makola kwakwe’ hitmaker was a trailblazer in his day with his stunning litany of songs and mastery of the stage. Then followed the dark days of anonymity.He has tried to stay relevant with a couple of decent songs but it is all too obvious his best days are behind him.
