Best new Ghanaian artistes of 2018


Below are the best new artistes who made 2018 a memorable one.

Blazing sounds made by thriving lads didn’t watch 2018 pass by without contributing their quota to the music industry.

From heavy-bass laced hip-hop to the complicated afrobeats sounds made of Kora, Talking drum, Balafon, Shekere and Djembe, this year has produced wonders – most of which were surprises.

Below are the best new artistes who made 2018 a memorable one.

1. Wendy Shay

She was thought to be the replacement of the late Ebony Reigns after her signing but has lived beyond critics’ inexorable prognosis.

Wendy Shay exploded instantly when launched herself onto the scene with “Uber Driver” in June under Bullet’s RuffTown Records/MidasTouch Inc. – the same label which catered for the “Maame Hw3” hitmaker.

She followed up with another banger “Bedroom Commando”, “Astalavista” and later recruited Sarkodie and Kuami Eugene for “Psalm 35”.

However, her career was nearly rocked by a sex scandal with her manager Bullet but thanks to her PR tactics, she pulled a great collaboration with Eno Barony on “The Boy Is Mine” to clear the mess.

She concluded the year with another jam, titled “Masakra”. Her dominance as a new artiste just a recherché – the industry hardly sees this.

2. Kelvyn Boy

Kelvyn Boy kick-started the year with an impressive afrobeats jam, titled “Afrobeats” and followed up another blistering dance vibe titled “Coffee”.

Aside from his busy club tours, an international tour with Stonebwoy and massive collaborations, he managed to maintain his relevance with his latest, titled “Ginger”.

What a great year for Kelvyn!

3. eShun


Despite losing out the “Unsung Artiste” award to Kuami Eugene at the 2017 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, eShun, one of the most outstanding and current best female songstresses, didn’t give up.

Known for her 2017 hit single, “Someone Loves Me”, which has half a million views on YouTube, eShun started the year with a reggae melody titled “Fa Me Kor”.

She followed up with “Fakye” and “I Want” and her current hit, “Akyia”.

Her hard work earned her 8 nominations at this year’s Central Music Awards – making her the only female to garner that number of nominations.

What a way to end the year!
