A life without a challenge would be somewhat: so as a race without a winner would be awkward. The Ghanaian music industry has over the years seen the performance of talented and super fantastic singers of which some are still ruining and others out of the system. In the gospel industry great like Esther Smith, Bishop Michael Osei Bonsu, Cindy Thompson, Amy Newman, Daughters of glorious Jesus, Tagoe Sisters, No Tribe, and a host of others Hip-life and Highlife artistes of fame include Slim Buster, Nana Ampadu, Obrafour, Samini, Guru, Amakye Dede, Paa Bobo, Daddy Lumba, Sarkodie, Tinny, etc It is quiet funny almost all the above listed musicians once ruled as king or queen of the Ghana Music Industry. Of late it been like the gospel musicians have been over shadowed by the great musician I call them the triple S kings.
Michael Owusu Addo known publicly as Sarkodie, a Ghanaian hip -pop, hip-life and Azonto recording artiste. BET best International Act award winner 2012. The fastest rapper in Ghana. This man needs no further introduction since his fame is everywhere. He is well known for albums like Sarkology, Mary Mary. His style of music presentation is a mixture of facts and comedy. A couple of his single tracks like ‘free press’, ‘Economy’, ‘Dumsor’, got him into trouble but still keeps on moving. Due to his level of excel many groups have been formed to motivate him the likes of Sarknation, TeamSark and the rest.
The second on top of the list rocking after Sarkodie is no one else than Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr a reggae- dancehall musician, known on stage as Shatta Wale formerly Bandana. He won the Artiste of the year 2014 edition of the Ghana Music Awards. Shatta Wale best known as dancehall king. A very controversial artist founder and president of Shatta Movement and SM4Lyf. His songs are very difficult to hear what he means. He combines English, Twi with the Patwah languages in his music His song “Dancehall king “ there was a verse which goes “dancehall king in the whole Ghana” due to how fast he sings people were singing it as Dancehall king Hanna Montana” instead of the words ‘Dancehall king in the whole Ghana’. He is really talented for the fact that ‘dissing’ a collegue musician in his music is not a problem.
Lastly, Livingstone Etse Satekia known in showbiz as Stonebwoy a Ghanaian Afro -pop, Dancehall and Reggae artiste and the CEO of Burniton Music Group. Stonebwoy likewise Shatta Wale are among the few Ghanaian musicians who ragga in Jamacian Patwa or Patwah and considered a “multifaceted rapper”. He won the ‘Artist of the year’ and ‘Album of the year‘ in the 2015 edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Award and also won the Best International Act of BET awards 2015 Bhimnation is the fan group supporting Livingstone Satakia’s music. The music of this great personalities have been cruised by many yet they stand top in the Ghana Music Industry. Sarkodie, Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy.
