D-Black’s ‘Kiss and Tell’ featuring Akwaboah; 19 more Ghanaian songs to stream now

On Friday (September 17), Ghanaian rapper D-Black took to his Twitter to express his feelings about an Apple Music editorial playlist, ‘Top 100: Ghana’, consisting of “the most-played songs in Ghana, updated every day.”

You’re probably asking yourself, “What’s the problem?” At the time, eighteen songs out of the Top 20 were made by Nigerian artists. The Accra-born rapper’s statement isn’t a slight to the American music and video streaming service, per se, or Nigerians. The ‘Enjoyment Minister’ as the song order on the playlist is based on stream counts from the region. An Apple Music editor does not curate the playlist.

What is D-Black’s point? He believes that most Ghanaian artists cannot take off the way artists from other African regions do if Ghanaian pride isn’t driving the stream counts up to support the home base.

Is he wrong? Is he right? I am not from Ghana, nor is my company based in West Africa, but I know how to spread the word about music and take necessary steps towards solving a problem.

Here’s a list of nineteen songs (in alphabetical order) made by Ghanaian artists you can stream now. If you want to view the content we’ve supported by other Ghanaian artists, visit this link.

iMullar, a Ghana-based entertainment company that GRUNGECAKE often collaborates with, has put its best foot forward when it comes to pushing Ghana’s next up. Still, it doesn’t seem like the company is championed by Ghanaians, established and otherwise. Hopefully, that will begin to change with time.
