Nigerian singer, songwriter and actor Chike today released his highly anticipated album, The Brother’s Keeper via Brothers Records, making it his second studio sophomore album. Stream the album HERE

Symbolizing the space that Chike sees himself in life, The Brother’s Keeper sums up the sounds of courage, bravery, self love and confidence in the person he has become, and centers on the importance of growth, shedding expectations from people around him, and throwing oneself into the unknown.  This album, comes through after his wildly accepted album, Boo of the Booless, which was nominated for Album of the Year at the 2020 Headies Awards, holding tracks like, “Insecure”, “Running”, “Roju” just to mention a few.

He reflects on the journey thus far, basks and sails in the present but is weary of an uncertain future. Speaking of being a ‘Brother Keeper’, Chike highlighted instances of fellow artists Simi and Mayorkun showing up for him, African music royal Flavour collaborating on the album, and urged everyone to strive to be one, whether boy or girl, man or woman.

With collaborations including Ycee, Azana, Flavour, this album solidifies Chike’s place amongst the greats and furthers the evolution of his sound, his songwriting, and his production.

Says Chike of what the album represents for him in his creative journey: “We have flown the air like birds and swum the sea like fishes but have yet to learn the simple act of walking the earth like brothers,”.

What sounds are hot with Ghanaian Gen Zs right now?

Published

on

Ghana Party

Ghana’s Gen Zs are energetic and motivated. They’re also cosmopolitan, keen to better themselves, and as welcoming of international influences as local ones and those from the wider African continent. That’s true until the end of the day, when they’re more willing to embrace their melancholy side. At least, that’s the story told by their Spotify music and podcast listening tastes.

 

From a local music perspective,  Tema’s very own rap and freestyle artist Kwesi Arthur rules the roost, followed by Highlife and Afrobeats singer-songwriter King Promise, with Sarkodie, Black Sherif, and Gyakie rounding out the top five most streamed local artists by Ghanaian Gen Zs.

 

The list of top artists meanwhile, has a much more American and Nigerian flavour with Burna Boy, Asake, Drake, and Lil Baby all claiming spots in the top five. It shouldn’t be surprising then that Burna Boy also has two songs in the list of most streamed recordings, the megahits “Last Last” and “It’s plenty”. The top song, however, belongs to local artists Agbeshie and EpiqMenz with “Downtown Guy”. Here too, though, Nigerian artists have a strong presence. Bandana by Asake and Fireboy DML and Overloading (OVERDOSE) by Ayra Starr, Boy Spyce, Crayon, LADIPOE, Magixx, and Mavins both feature in the top five most streamed tracks among Ghanaian Gen Zs.

 

When it comes to the most popular albums among Ghanaians aged between 18 and 25, , meanwhile, Burna Boy again tops the list with Love Damini. Fellow Nigerians Fireboy DML, with Playboy and Asake with Mr. Money With The Vibe take the next two slots in the top five. Rounding out the list of top albums are local offerings 5 star by King Promise and Son of Jacob by Kwesi Arthur.

 

Knowing all this, it shouldn’t be too surprising that Rap, Afropop, Nigerian pop, Azontobeats, and Pop are the most heavily favoured genres among young Ghanaians. It also shouldn’t be too surprising that the top five Spotify curated playlists in Ghana include African Heat, Hot Hits Ghana, Ghana Party, Afro Hits, and Afropop.

 

It’s also interesting to take a look at the mood playlists the country’s Gen Zs listen to throughout the day. During daylight hours, energy and motivation clearly play a big role.

 

In the early morning, for instance, their top three playlists are Morning Motivation, Wake Up Happy, and Mood Booster. The only deviation comes in the shape of the Villain Mode playlist, featuring tracks themed around heartbreak and being vengeful. The upbeat theme picks back up later in the morning when Wake Up Happy is replaced by Confidence Boost. Energy Booster: Hip-Hop and Songs to Sing in the Shower round out the top five. In the afternoon and evening Feelin’ Myself and Happy Hits! join the party.

 

Things take a more melancholy tone once the day draws to a close, however. The most listened-to mood playlists in the late evening and at night, include Sad Songs, Life Sucks, Sad Guitar Instrumentals, and Lowkey. There is still space for love though, with 100 Best African Love Songs, Goosebumps, and Chilled R&B proving popular.

 

Moving away from music and to podcasts, things have a more spiritual feel, especially when it comes to those produced locally. The top-rated local podcast, Sincerely Accra covers life in the capital, as does number five in the top five Stay By Plan. The second-most listened to local podcast CEYC Airport City Podcast is, however, religious as are number three and four, the Mensa Otabil Audio Podcast, and Pastor Agyemang Elvis.

 

These are just a few of the insights that Ghana’s Gen Z listening tastes provide. One thing that should be clear is that, as their influence grows, they’ll have an exciting role to play in shaping Ghana’s future and that they’re definitely up for it.
