Spotify Wrapped: What were Ghanaians listening to in 2022?

Published

top tracks of 2022 ghana ENTER ARTIST NAME cover

Ghana is not called the ‘Gateway to Africa’ for nothing. Ghanaians may proudly support their own, but as this year’s Spotify Wrapped data shows, they’re also enabling other creators and artists from other countries on the continent to thrive.

The country’s music scene is brimming with global hits, churning out some of the continent’s promising breakout artists. And, as digital streaming platforms continue to be the dominant way for artists to reach their fans globally and for fans to explore their musical and audio content tastes, what exactly are Ghanaians listening to? How does this influence culture? What does this reveal about Ghana’s music scene in general?

“This year, Ghanaians have shown that music is indeed a universal language. Spotify Wrapped results show Ghanaians are as welcoming of international influences as local ones and those from the wider African continent,” says Spotify’s head of music for Sub-Saharan Africa, Phiona Okumu.

Ghana’s Spotify Wrapped results for 2022 – an annual round up of the top artists and music of the year as streamed by users around the world, shows how Ghanians are listening to music.

  • Ghanaians love a good party, and they start this from 5:00pm when the sun is about to go down through to 6:00 pm and 11:00 pm according to the latest Spotify Wrapped data.  It is no surprise that the day when they stream the most music is Friday, followed by Saturday.

  • The playlist that they jam to the most is African Heat – Spotify’s curated playlist which compiles all the tracks heating up the continent.

 

  • It goes without saying that Ghanaians love their own, as local music consumption keeps soaring with an impressive 193% year on year increase from from 2021 to 2022.

 

  • Nigerian artists are enjoying a sweet spot in Ghana, as Burna Boy takes the top spot as the most streamed artist in the country this year. Home grown talent  Black Sherif continues to have a stand out presence in music, ending the year as the second most streamed artist locally.

  • The two also clinched top spots for the most streamed albums of the year with Love, Damini by Burna Boy leading  followed by Black Sherif’s The Villian I Never Was .

  • Spotify RADAR Global Artist Ayra Starr topped the list as the most streamed female artist in Ghana. She’s followed closely by the Grammy-nominated Tems, with Africa’s first to join Spotify’s EQUAL Programme, Gyakie at third place.

  • Black Sherif’s meteoric rise to fame which he chronicled in his Kwaku The Traveller got the most heart hits among Ghanaians.

M.Anifest Out With Innovative ‘The E.P.Ilogue’ To Conclude ‘Madina To The Universe’ Journey

Published

Madina To The Universe The E.P.ilogue Art

A year after his critically acclaimed Madina To The Universe album, award-winning Ghanaian rap artist and musician M.anifest unveils an innovative new project titled The E.P.ilogue.

Created throughout 2022, while M.anifest was touring across Europe and America, including packed out shows in London, New York, Oakland and Berlin, to mention a few, the 6-track project comes with international collaborations with Anik Khan (New York), M.I Abaga (Lagos), WavyPae (Atlanta), Alee (Accra), and a surprise written introduction from world-renowned writer Nayyirah Waheed.

The E.P.ilogue continues on from where M.anifest left off on last year’s album, as he brings his captivating lyricism and rich global sounds to the forefront once again, to deliver a bold, creative and expansive offering that brings his ‘Madina To The Universe’ journey to a cohesive wholeness. It was crafted with production from frequent collaborators MikeMillzOn’Em (Busta Rhymes, DarkoVibes), Drvmroll (Burna Boy, Frisco), Joey Turks (SuperJazzClub), Guy Furious (Dreamville, Nicole Scherzinger), and Rvdical The Kid (Tems, Amaarae), most of whom were involved in the making of the Madina To The Universe album.

As the acclaimed Nayyirah Waheed aptly puts it, “From creating a new form to introducing new sound – it is new forms of Universes he continues to explore on ‘MTTU’ + ‘The E.P.ilogue’. Here, M.anifest is inventing creations. He is touching everywhere from Madina to the universe and beyond. He is unafraid of the After – and taking us straight into the end of a universe + what comes After. M.anifest is a new astronaut. ‘The E.P.ilogue’ is a new astronaut. It’s time for new astronauts”.

The project opens with a reflective M.anifest on ‘GPS’ as he waxes lyrical about coming a long way and being guided on his journey. Nigerian music legend M.I Abaga then joins him on the much anticipated collaboration ‘Too Bad’ with both rap icons trading verses about their longevity in Africa’s rap game, and how they have a lot more to give. The smooth ‘Wussup’ with Anik Khan sees M.anifest in flirtatious mode, while ‘Plenty Feelings’ is an intimate romantic conversation, with ‘Travel Noir’ and ‘Times Square’ revealing M.anifest’s musing on travel, ambition and reaching the furthermost parts of the universe.

The E.P.ilogue represents yet another bold and resonant offering from the consistent and unwavering Ghanaian musician.
