5 Smartest Musicians in Ghana - Shatta Wale

Ghana music industry is gifted with numerous smart musicians. Year after year, the country keeps witnessing new musicians join the showbiz industry. The 2017/2018 music year, was one of the miraculous years which ushered in successful talents such as the late Ebony Reigns, Medikal, Kuami Eugene, Kwesi Arthur, KiDi, King Promise and the almighty Patapaa aka Patapeezy. It’s just unimaginable that 2017 gave birth to good musicians such as the ones mentioned above, all within the blink of an eye. I’m so happy for them: they have made it, they are entertaining music lovers like myself.

The problem is that, there was already 5-star artistes in Ghana such as Shatta Wale, Sarkodie, StoneBwoy and Samini. Rise of new artistes create competition in the industry. It may be easy to record a hit song and become famous. However, if an artist isn’t smart enough to keep his relevance in the music industry, competition will slowly eliminate such an artist, taking him from hero to zero. Over the years, some artist have shown their smartness and competence in music, we have therefore compiled a list of 5 smartest musicians in Ghana.

The following are the 5 smartest Musicians in Ghana:

  1. Shatta Wale

Shatta Wale, formerly known as Bandana is unquestionably the number 1 smartest musician in Ghana. Believe it or not, Bandana was a great musician who shined as early the year 2004. After losing his stance in the music industry, Bandana vanished into thin air for 10 years. He lost his name and fame, even though he produced great songs such as Bandana from Ghana, No Problem and Araba Kwansima.

Then all of a sudden, Bandana bounced back to the music scene, and rebranded himself as Shatta Wale. His noticeable comeback happened in 2013, when he released a monster dancehall tune titled “Dancehall King”. Since then, Shatta Wale has consistently been releasing hit songs, year after year, all the way through to 2019. Shatta Wale really knows his Level. I’m a big Shatta Wale fan because, he has revolutionized the music industry, he is an entertainer, and he is a motivation. Among the rest, the is a real money maker. Believe it or not, even though he is controversial, Shatta Wale is the smartest Musician in Ghana. His name will live for long.

 

Patapaa Patapeezy

  1. Patapaa

Yes! Are you surprised? That is not a mistake. Patapaa is one of the smartest musicians in Ghana. Even though his music career is only about 1 or 1.5 years old, Patapeezy is building a big empire. Even though I don’t listen to his songs, I’m beginning to like him. 😀 Patapaa is an Entertainer. He knows how to crack jokes, and fool to get attention. Attention seeking is a great technique which helps to sustain the relevance of musicians.

If a musician is not too good enough in producing consistent hit songs, he can use attention seeking (through fooling) to still lift up his career. Patapaa is funny to watch and listen to. He is also becoming controversial. That is a good move 👍. For example, sometime ago, Patapaa struck deal with a fake girlfriend, who was nicknamed Queen Peezy or Pata Pichy. This got the media talking about him. He even shined more after failing to win a deserving award in VGMA 2018. Also, he wore an over-sized coat for the award ceremony. But it never affected him negatively.

To cite his smartness once again, Patapaa went on a Europe tour this year (2019). At Europe, he met a beautiful German woman. The two of them were seen kissing each other passionately. Just about a week ago, Patapaa’s German (White) Girlfriend came to Ghana to support him in his Ghana Meets Naija show. Again, the media gave him more hype and attention. This shows that Patapaa is smart. He has a great future in Ghana music.

 

Stoneboy BhimNation

  1. Stonebwoy

Stonebwoy is a very good dancehall musician. After Shatta Wale’s Shatta Movement, Stonebwoy has the largest fan base in Ghana. The BhimNation gad is musically talented. He does great tracks, so we can say that he is also smart.

The only thing Stonebwoy lacks, is self-promotion (hype). He doesn’t like to seek attention. He doesn’t like to be loud or controversial. Unfortunately, that too good character is very bad for showbiz. Personally, I prefer musicians who know how to entertain, crack jokes, make noise and fool.😀 Even though, I don’t hate Stonebwoy, his music doesn’t inspire or ginger me like that of Champion Shatta Wale.

Medikal’s rap success story is unbelievable. He came from nowhere and has established himself as a promising rapper. Medikal suffered a huge music award blow during the 2018 VGMA. The rapper received plenty nominations (up to 5 or 7). Unfortunately, MDK lost all and walked home with nothing. He attended the award show with his ex-girfriend, Sister Derby.

In 2018/2019, Medikal defended his music talent by releasing big bangers such as Sister Akose, How Much, Omo Ada, Ayekoo etc. His efforts paid off and he won up to 2 awards in the 2019 VGMA. He was even adjudged Rapper of the Year.

Medikal is also controversial. He is a funny guy, he is loud. He even parted ways with his faithful ex-girlfriend, Sister Derby, and went for a big-booty- budding-actor, known as Fella Makafui. Medikal gets a lot of media attention, by composing funny rap verses and passing controversial comments. MDK is a smart Ghana Musician/ rapper.

  1. Kwesi Arthur, Kuami Eugene, KiDi, King Promise are also very good.

    Unfortunately, I’m yet to fully assess their level of smartness. I will find time and list other smartest musicians in Ghana, including the female musicians.

The “State of the Nation”, host beating competition from Stacy Amoateng, Abeiku Aggrey Santana, Patrick Osei Agyeman, Bernard Avle and Umaru Sanda Amadu, took to social media to disclose how her career practically got smashed due to the evil intentions of a best friend some years ago.

She said, “Last night, I was named the TV Development show host of the year and the biggest of the night, RADIO and TV Personality of the year”.

“I dedicate this to a best friend from 8 years ago who dragged me and every present I ever got her, to a juju woman to destroy the love and affection Ghanaians, colleagues and bosses had for me at the time. I also dedicate this to the juju woman who decided against it and found a way to bring this to my attention. God loves a clean heart. Sister, I’m happy to see you doing your very best on TV. My biggest regret was not forgiving you early enough. I pray God blesses your efforts with one of these awards soon. I still love you”.
“To all those who voted for me, YOU ARE PERFECT. Thank you for your part in my journey. I don’t take it for granted”.

Angelina Jolie: Strong women are ‘shaped by men around them’

Angelina Jolie: Strong women are ‘shaped by men around them’

Angelina Jolie has championed the role men can play in shaping the personalities of young girls.

The actress, who stars in Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, also said female characters in films should not have to be portrayed as physically tough in order to be considered strong.

“I think that, so often, when a story’s told which says ‘this is a strong woman’, she has to beat the man, or she has to be like the man, or she has to somehow not need the man,” Jolie told journalists at the film’s launch.

Referring to her own character in the film and Princess Aurora, played by Elle Fanning, Jolie said: “We both very much need and love and learn from the men.

“And so I think that’s also an important message for young girls, to find their own power, but to respect and learn from the men around them.”

She added: “We have strong women, but the character that is wrong in the film and has to be taken out is also a woman. We show very diverse types of women, between our characters, but also we have extraordinary men in the film, and I really want to press that point.”

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, the sequel to 2014’s Maleficent, is released in the UK later this month and also stars Ed Skrein, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Michelle Pfeiffer.

Fanning, who reprises her role of Princess Aurora in the film, echoed Jolie’s comments and said her character’s strength is not necessarily physical, unlike many princesses in children’s films.

“Aurora’s strength is her kindness, and she stays very true to herself, which is something I wanted to keep in the film. She is soft and feminine and wants to be a wife and have babies, and that’s a beautiful, strong thing that isn’t portrayed a lot on screen.

“A lot of the princesses are like ‘we’re gonna make her a strong princess! And make her tough, so we’re gonna make her fight!’ And it’s like, is that what being a strong woman means? Like, we just have to have a sword and have armour on and go fight? Aurora can do that in a different way, in a pink dress, and it’s beautiful that she keeps her softness and vulnerabilities.”

Don’t come my way – Vicky Zugah tells non-serious men

If there is one celebrity who has not been shy about putting her relationships in the public eye, it has to be Vicky Zugah.

The actress has been very open about her relationship struggles, including the alleged physical abuse she suffered at the hands of some of her exes.

And for someone who has had a roller-coaster ride with love, it is only right that she would be careful who she chooses to settle down with, so it is not out of place for her to say she doesn’t need non-serious men.

In an interview with Graphic Showbiz on Tuesday, October 8, Vicky Zugah said she had been in a few relationships but the men she dated were not serious.

“At my age now, all I need is a caring and serious man. I don’t want any disturbance from a man who does not know what he wants. I need my peace of mind and I am not ready for any non-serious man around me,” she said.

The mother-of-two said while she waited for a good man to come her way, she was focusing on her business and her children.

“I am very single at the moment and focusing on my children and businesses. I have observed that men will do me no good but trouble me with their annoying characters. Being single helps me achieve whatever I set out to do,” she said.

Away from her relationships, Vicky Zugah who has featured in movies such as King Without Culture, Inner Woman, Oyaw No Agatha, Act of Shame, among others, said contrary to what some actors/actresses claimed, doing movies was not lucrative now.

“Let us not kid ourselves that there is money in movies. Some of us are doing this work because of the connections and for the fans. If it were the money alone, I would have quit movies long ago.

“The money we receive is nothing to write home about. Movies don’t give us a lot of money but they open doors to do other things and that is what has helped me so far,” she said.

Vicky Zugah said although the movie industry was slow lately, there was still hope that it could bounce back on its feet again, adding: “We just need to do a little restructuring of what is wrong with our industry and we are good to go.”

“It’s all about money. We need money to reshape the movie industry and everything will be fine. The actors are always ready to shoot movies because some of us love what we do,” she said.
