Led by dancehall singer Charles Nii Armah Mensah (Shata Wale) with 4 visuals, this year’s top trending music videos compiled by YouTube also consists songs from Ebony, Kwadwo “Lil Win” Nkansah, Sarkodie, and Nigerian Afropop singer Davido.
Shatta Wale’s “Taking Over” featuring this militants Joint 77, Addi Self, and Captan sits atop the list, followed by Davido with “If”. Kwadwo Nkansah comes third with “Ladder”. Shatta returns with “Ayoo”, followed by Lil Win and Ebony. Other songs which complete the list include songs from Sarkodie and Shatta Wale again.
The list reaffirms Shatta Wale’s dominance over contemporary Ghanaian music –which has been the case for the past four or five years. Having released over 100 songs this year alone, the “Kakai” hitmaker shows no signs of slowing down.
It is interesting to note that joints from Stonebwoy, Kuami Eugene, and KiDi all failed to make the list despite a great year they have had.
