List of Top Ghanaian Afrobeats Artists

In what some may say was the birthplace of the Afrobeat genre, a style of music that some may assume is either rhythm and blues or reggae or even dancehall, but the accurate depiction is Ghanaian Afrobeats.  Ghana Afrobeat artists, along with musicians that are consider as Ghana Afro Pop artists, have become some of Africa’s leaders of the continent’s music and entertainment industry by producing dozens of gifted Afro Pop and Afrobeat singers within the borders of Ghana.

Always leading the way, from being one of Africa’s first independent nations to being one of the wealthiest countries in the world as far as natural resources, Ghana has become a forefather of the world’s hottest up and coming new genre of music, Afrobeat.

Despite being overshadowed by neighboring Nigeria, Ghana Afrobeat music has risen out of the shadows of larger African music scenes into creating a handful of leading Ghana Afro Pop stars, despite the amount not being as large as other nations within the continent.  Regardless of what country has the largest amount of international stars, Ghanaian Afrobeats is probably producing the best music in the continent of Africa.

The genes and traits of Ghanaians has already produced world stars, stars like Michael Blackson, wrestler Kofi Kingston, or actor Boris Kodjoe, and now with Afrobeat and Afro Pop artists in Ghana like Stonebwoy, MzVee, Shatta Wale, or Wendy Shay the legacy will continue in a country that has been known for world class athletes and one of Africa’s leading film and television industries.
