3. King Promise

King Promise

With his soothing vocal, King Promise created love melodies that would forever live in the memories of Ghanaians.
He is the master of love songs – I guess the fresh graduate from Central University is a lover doctor.
King Promise created sounds that cut across all aspects of relationships. From happy moments to breakups, the young lad created romantic vibes that had everyone sing along.
He started off the year with a nationwide hit, titled “Oh Yeah”, hooked up Mr Eazi for the remix, hooked up Stonebwoy for another banger “Hey Sexy” and cemented the glorious year with another instant hit, titled “Selfish”.

4. Worlasi

He has become the love of hiphop lovers in Ghana. He had the opportunity to be featured in coke studio and that is a plus for him


5. Patapaa

Amisty Patapaa broke into the limelight after his song ‘one corner’ and its accompanying dance moves went viral on social media. He has since had the opportunity to perform on bigger and better platforms. His song was one of the most searched in Nigeria.


6. Kurl Songs 

His Jennifer Lomotey had huge controversy and became an instant hit song. He followed it up with several others. He got the opportunity to perform on some big stages in Ghana.

7. Magnom


This man brought into being the fear of modern Ghanaian tastemakers. You are wrong if you perceive modern sound engineers to be only experts in beat creation. Magnom hammered that assumption this year.
The beat creator, who has been creating hits for top Ghanaian stars from Sarkodie to Edem, baptised himself into the performing field a year ago and immediately blew up.
He started off 2017 with an instant hit, titled “My Baby” featuring Joey B. He followed up the success of the song with “Tsoobi” (Toy) – a heavy bass Afrobeats and “Overfeed Me” featuring Mr Eazi.
He cemented his first successful year (as a performer) with “Bam Bam” featuring Spacely.
