I get that Nigerians don’t respect Ghanaian Jollof but I think it’s very unfair for Nigerians to underrate Ghanaians and ask such a question as “How Many Artistes Does Ghana even have”. They might not be as big as Wizkid or Davido but Ghana has a plethora of musical talents that would give our biggest pop stars a run for their money.
Below are some soft and emotional Ghanaian songs that I feel are quite underrated and would most likely leave you in your feelings.
1. Kuami Eugene – Wish Me Well
Arguably the most emotional track on this list, if you’re in a sad mood and you listen to this track there’s a high chance that you’d be teary-eyed while listening to it. This young cat is one of the most talented R&B singers from Ghana.
2. KiDi – Adiepena
This song has to be the most romantic millennial R&B song from Ghana. If we were to compare this Ghanaian act to a Nigerian musician then we can call him the Banky W of Ghana. His vocal prowess is beautiful and his lines are soft and emotional.
3. Tic feat. KiDi – PeNe MaMe
If you’re a music head who enjoy classic Ghanian Music then you’d know the Ghanian rapper ‘Tic Tac’. He decided to make a comeback and he featured the Ghanian Banky W ‘Kidi’ in Pene Mame and it’s safe to say this love song is a jam for days.
4. Efya – Obianuju Cover
Sung originally by Duncan Mighty, Efya did her own slow and acoustic rendition and it’s the most emotional cover of the song so far. It can either leave you feeling all luvy duvy or in tears.
5. MzVee ft Patoranking – Sing My Name
Arguably the Yemi Alade of Ghana, MzVee is one of the most consistent female acts from Ghana who regularly drops hit tracks. She’s featured big names like Kidi, Yemi Alade and on this love song she featured Patoranking and insisted he sings her name. A bit up-tempo, this song would leave you elated in your feelings.
6. Kuami Eugene – Angela
The final song on this list resembles an ode, an Ode to Angela. Another beautiful love song with a sprinkle of Ghanian culture, if you have a slow song or R&B playlist this song should definitely be in it.
