The most important achievement of every Ghanaian musician is to produce hit song after hit song to be able to stay relevant and revered in the music industry.
This can however not be said of some musicians in the movie industry who have just made waves with a single song and went down and under on the music scene.
Today, YEN.com.gh brings to you the musicians who took Ghana by storm with their one-time hit songs and are currently not making headlines anymore
1. Zigi (You Say Weytin)
The musician took the nation by storm with his hit song and made even more waves with a very classic music video for the song. Many students danced to the song and the song received a lot of air play. The musician has not produced any other hit song that we know of after he swept music lovers off their feet.
2. Eduwodzi (Yenko Nkoaa)
The rapper who many felt was going to be a stiff competition to Edem gave many musicians a run for their money with his hit song. The song became associated with many brands and promotions. The creative music video that came with the song got a lot of people practicing or perfecting their ‘agbadza’ dance moves. The musician has however not dropped another ‘banger’ like his ‘Yenko Nkoaa’ song that became a household song.
3. Nana Boroo (Aha ye de)
Nana Boroo’s hit song was an instant hit and there was hardly a party or celebratory event that went on without Nana Boroo’s song being played. The French language that was used in the song got so many music lovers fascinated and ‘ad libbed’ those lines in the song. The hit song also gained so much popularity that companies used it to push their products and services. The rapper also came out with “Bebiaa so so” but his “Aha ye de” song was more popular.
4. Atom (Ye wo Krom)
The hit song was loved by Ghanaians from all walks of life because of the ‘mention’ some category of people received in the song. The song became the official Christmas song in the year it was produced. There was hardly a disc jockey (DJ) who did not play it at events. The youth latched onto the song and made it popular even though the song had gained national recognition.
5. Dr. Slim (Seke)
Dr. Slim’s Ga song was so popular that it even caught the attention of people from other ethnic groups. The song came to be associated with a dance that translated the words of the song with bodily actions. The song in a way was in relation to ‘madness’ or rowdy behavior.
6. Okuraseni Samuel (Homework)
The song which was produced by a former “Mentor” participant became a national hit and the story depicted by the music video gave the singer more admiration. The musician has not been able to produce another hit song to match his hit “Homework” song.
7. Andy (Sweetie)
The former “Mentor” contestant came in strong into the music industry with “Sweetie” after taking part in the music show. The song was so big a project that he featured Samini on it. The song received a lot of air play due to the chorus. The singer also gained some popularity with his signature walking stick. It cannot be ascertained if the musician has produced another song that can rival his “Sweetie” song.
8. FBS (Oluman Boogie)
The hip life music trio made a name for themselves with their hit song and caught the attention of many with some of their formation dance moves. Their song “Old Man Boogie or Oluman Boogie” made a lot of waves in the music industry. The trio featured Tinny on the song.
