Ghanaian songs improve daily, and 2022 was a notable year that gave the industry several musical surprises.

Compared to the previous year, there was more music, some of which exceeded fans' expectations. Overall, it signalled a significant expansion of the Ghanaian music sector. The next 10 big tunes for the year made this extra special.

  • Sugarcane Remix – Camidoh ft Mayorkun & Darkoo

The debut of "Sugarcane" by Camidoh, who had been releasing excellent music for years in an effort to share his unique gift with Ghanaian fans, signalled a turning point for the singer.

The song found a receptive audience because of its alluring hook and traditional Afrobeats tempo, and when it got its first remix, it shot to instant fame. Fast-rising Ghanaian-UK musician Darkoo and Mayorkun, a well-known figure known for his remixing skills, collaborated with Camidoh on a remix that propelled the song to stardom.

  • Second Sermon Remix – Black Sherif ft Burna Boy

When Black Sherif released ‘Second Sermon’ in 2021, it introduced him to the rest of West Africa and Africa in general. Nigerian crooner, Burna Boy was so fascinated by the song that he ended up recording a remix with the Ghanaian drill rapper.

  • Kwaku The Traveller – Black Sherif

Kwaku the Traveller's lyrics and production have a higher transmit value because of their passionate delivery, mixing, and production. Out of all of them, the song's relatability is what matters most. 

The record was released as a single off his debut album "The Villian I Never Was" and served as a perfect build-up to the project. 

  • Down Flat - Kelvyn Boy

The vibe with ‘Down Flat’ is special in many ways. Kelvyn Boy enlisted the support of Nigerian producer KullBoiBeatz. 

  • Survivor – Wendy Shay

Wendy Shay, an Afrobeats and Afropop singer took not much caution in this tune which is a personal experience. She hits back at a man who broke her heart and she doesn’t have kind words for him. 

Her bravery and excellent production make this record a superbly awesome song to listen to. 

  • Something – Gyakie

There is just enough bounce in the Afrobeats fusion song "Something" which makes it really groovy.  Gyakie who lifted this song off her ‘My Diary’ EP whips up emotions. 

The production's rhythm is evocative of well-known Ghanaian records. She effectively portrays the bitter aspect of attraction and love.

  • Grace – Amerado ft Lasmid

Just before the release of his recent album ‘G.I.N.A’, Amerado released ‘Grace’ featuring rapper Lasmid and it was such an excellent song.

  • Champagne – KiDi

KiDi starts it off with the lively, mid-tempo song "Champagne". His self-description as a party rockstar includes the explicit statement that Champagne is for his suffering, but he also drinks it on his birthday. It's a parabolic lyric that refers to his pleasures and suffering from the past. Thankfully, he depicts a man who overcomes everything by practising meditation.

  • Non Living Thing – Sarkodie

The hip-hop song produced by DJ Coublon generated a lot of buzz all year. This lovely song, featuring a Nigerian crooner, is just lovely to listen to.

  • Friday Night – Lasmid

Lasmid shows his understanding of the core principles of Afrobeats, particularly repetition and melody, which he carefully harvested in "Friday Night".
