T-Ben Miller knows exactly what he wants so he goes for it. In these times of social media craze and the hanker for trends, many artistes, especially young talents are ready to do anything to get themselves in the news — be it good or awkwardly — they just want to trend! But that’s not the case of this young creative talent called T-Ben Miller.

The Afrobeats Crooner returns with a sophomore EP he titles “No Bad Times” — this comes after he has decided to engage the different sides of his music craft.

T-Ben didn’t not only outlive himself on this project but he really invested a lot into making this EP a solid one.

Holding just 4 songs for “No Bad Times” EP, he was able to blend different styles of Afro and pop sound into the body of work — from track 1 to track 4, the heavy African originality was very visible. A West African Artiste with roots embedded in Ghana and Nigeria, one will be fully assured of no bad songs on “No Bad Times” EP.

“No Bad Times” is his sophomore EP, his previous one released in 2020, his debut, was “Kwame Nkrumah” EP.

In an exclusive interview BeenieWords, T-Ben Miller gave a breakdown of his “No Bad Times” EP.

Below is the narrative:
Why “No Bad Times” EP? What’s the agenda behind this concept?

‘No Bad Times’ is a collection of a work of art that holds conversations on piety, love and hate, sadness and happiness. But in all, the idea is to remind ourselves as humans to celebrate life, enjoy life and embrace all situations regardless of how they turn out. The work of art also teaches us not to be judgmental in situations and situations of others without knowing what they’re going through — whether beautiful or ugly moments.

As human beings even before we know how to speak or think properly, we have been indoctrinated into different cults, churches mosque etc, and we have provided answers to these questions mostly based on those (respective) beliefs. To a man who is to be blind from birth and forever, the world must be dark. To tell him that there is something called light must be to deceive him, but what then is the truth? To him what is real is darkness and that is his sad truth. It will take self questioning and self awareness for such a man to reason and come to terms with the possibility light.

No bad times EP was produced by Samsney and Hairlergbe, engineered by Mix Master Garzy, Cash 2 and Samsney.

Already, 2 songs have been released off the EP with singles titled as “Baby” and “Mayana”, respectively. According to T-Ben Miller, this is a project he is stretching into first quarter of 2023 with single releases off the record until full catalogue drops in February 2023.

“No Bad Times” EP only features T-ben Miller; no ‘external’ features have been captured for it. A strategy he is using to focus more on himself to launch his solo music career to mainstream locally and globally.

T-Ben Miller has gone back to music training school to hone his craft properly and this has reflected in his recent performances and recordings for the EP, a more fortified voice and more powerful song-writing abilities.

Track 1:
“Baby” was produced and engineered by Samsney.

Track 2 & 3:
“I’m Grateful” and “Muller” were produced by Hairlergbe and engineered by Cash 2.

Track 4:
“Mayana” (Comfort Me) was produced by Hairlergbe and engineered by Mix Master Garzy.

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.
