Mr. Eazi – Werser Mr. Eazi had a phenomenal last quarter of 2022 in the music industry, delivering one of the biggest singles under the name “Patek.” The song performed astronomically well across all streaming services. With a brand-new song called “Werser,” Mr. Eazi gets the party started. This time, Mr. Eazi uses the skills of DJ Tarico, a record producer from Monza, who made the upbeat instrumental for the song. The superstar’s first release of 2023, Weser, marks the start of what already seems to be a fruitful year for him. The song acts as a springboard for his currently in development new project. Phyno & Olamide – Ojemba The partnership between this duo, Phyno and Olamide, has never failed since the start of the previous decade. It’s been a really easy road for both artists, with Ghost Mode, Dope Money, the Mastekraft-produced Fada Fada, and other incredible collaborations. For this crucial song named “Ojemba,” Phyno and Olamide, the duo that have each independently constructed musical empires under the titles of YBNL and Penthauze, get together once more. The song, which features Phyno as the lead vocalist, is the rapper’s first release of the year and a sequel to his previous single, “BBO (Bad Bxtches Only).” Production credits to Xtofa. Medikal – Ronaldo Talented Ghanaian musician, Medikal has released another catchy and pulsating single, Ronaldo. Prior to its official release, the song earned rave reviews from music critics and his followers when he teased it on his social media pages. In addition, he launched a song title guessing challenge on social media to his followers and supporters. The price package tied to the challenge drew a lot of attention on social media. 5,000ghc was given to the challenge’s victor. The song ‘Ronaldo’ is Medikal’s first 2023 release and is a jam. Vacs – Kill Me Ghanaian record producer and musician Vacs has put out his first single of the year and it is entitled ‘Kill Me.’ Vacs is known for his unique blend of hip-hop, trap, dancehall and afrobeats. As a matter of fact, when it comes to producing and writing excellent music, Vacs knows no bounds. The song Kill me was produced by Mono is a song that talks about how he wants to be killed by love. The song will definitely make you dance to its rhythm. Shatta Wale – One Of A Kind With additional song releases this year, Shatta Wale continues on his current path. Following closely upon his previous single, “London Bridge,” Shatta Wale releases a new song, “One Of A Kind,” which was produced by Beatz Vampire. D Jay – Morning Stress D Jay gets the year off to a tender start with his new song ‘Morning Stress.’ After months of lodging on some of the continent’s hottest playlists, thanks to his unforgettable 2022 hit ‘Balance It’ – which raked in over 20M streams on Boomplay alone – and later its Mr Eazi-assisted remix, D Jay is ready to deliver his next chart-topping delight: ‘Morning Stress.’ Another love song to put the singer’s feelings into perspective, ‘Morning Stress’ is an instant Afrobeat charmer, driven by a steady flow of drum loops that pave the way for D Jay’s supple intonations – one that he seeks to woo his love interest with, singing: “Baby girl, come caress me oh, caress me/Free up my mind, oh”. Announcing ‘Morning Stress’ as his next release on Twitter two days before Christmas Day, D Jay’s new song could be well underway to become another infectious hit, following in the footsteps of his previous release, ‘Balance It’, seizing the airwaves in the process. Last year, D Jay was one of Ghana’s breakout stars, dominating social media and the airwaves with his irresistible song ‘Balance It’ – a smooth cut that has to date accumulated over 40M streams on all digital streaming platforms. Morgan Heritage – Just A Number Today, 3x Grammy award-winning reggae band Morgan Heritage –– currently comprised of the Trinity: Peetah Morgan, Gramps Morgan, and Mr. Mojo Morgan, all the children of late reggae great and Father of A Nation, the Hon. Ras Denroy Morgan –– share their new single and music video “Just A Number.” The new track serves as an awareness anthem, sparking conversation around the topic of cancel culture and the ephemeral nature of fame. The accompanying music video was directed by Samo (Koffee, Chronixx, Protoje), and filmed at Independence Park (National Stadium) in Kingston, Jamaica. Recorded and mixed in Kingston and Florida, “Just A Number” was “inspired by historic and current figures in the entertainment industry,” says Morgan Heritage. “The song speaks directly to upcoming sports, film, tv, and music entertainers and anyone pursuing a professional career. We want to warn them that it’s possible to work hard and sacrifice all their lives yet lose everything due to personal views or opinion.” Morgan Heritage continues, “As students of history, we know it is better to open minds than to close them. And that’s what we hope to do with this song.” “Just A Number” is just the first release in what promises to be a very busy year for Morgan Heritage. Stay tuned for more information on new music, live performances and much more. Boy Spyce – Folake Talented Nigerian singer-songwriter Boy Spyce, under the imprint of Mavin Records has dropped his eagerly awaited single, “Folake.” Boy Spyce’s first official song for 2023, “Folake,” was produced by up-and-coming beatmaker Sparrq.

The two continental juggernauts have satiated your cravings, so stop talking. Everyone is aware that another collaboration between the two acts will be as successful as the previous one. We have all we needed from their recent performance at Burna Boy’s event in Jamaica. After delivering like Hebrew women on the 11th track of Love, Damini’s album, “Toni-Ann Singh,” Popcaan and Burna Boy reunite for a brand-new song titled “Aboboyaa.” This time, Popcaan is the lead vocalist and the single is the sixth from his recently released album, “Great Is He.” It is the singer’s first release of the year. Are you curious as to what Aboboyaa means? In Ghana, though, this is a rather typical thing. Tricycles are known in Ghanaian Twi as “Aboboyaa.” It is not surprising given that Popcaan was seen in Ghana riding in a “Aboboyaa” with a plethora of women, which appeared to be scenes from the making of the video. Anju Blaxx is the producer of Aboboyaa. There you have it, these are the 10 Best Songs You Need To Hear This Week.
