After marking his name with permanent ink and widening his fan base with the exceptional song “Human Being”, Offei is here to serve the world with the missing ingredient for parties and ‘link-op’ sessions this Christmas. “Body Whine” is the perfect song to evolve the excitement within you to the extremes. The vocalist lays smooth yet groovy lyrics on a mid-tempo incomparable Afropop instrumental produced by the genius, Wood. The elements involved in the instrumentation form the absolute recipe for a heated dance floor. MC Kojo Manuel put in some energy with his invigorating intro and outro. Now, let the jams officially begin with “Body Whine.”
In most countries, especially Ghana, Friday night is time for relaxation, and dealing with the stress that one faced throughout the week. To make this precious moment solid, it’s necessary that we sing along to a common tune. And that’s what Sketchy brings to the table. The story of “Friday Night” starts when Y FM presenter (co-host of Dryve of Your Lyf) Koo Sebor alerts Sketchy how they lack cash although they still want to pop bottles and have fun. On a nostalgic 90s Hip-Hop/R&B instrumental produced by S.S.K, Sketchy lays smooth flows, detailing how he makes Friday night special, and assuring that the drinks are on him. Kofi Jamar comes through with the most befitting hook with his silky voice. From the camp of BKC music, we present to you this classic.
Last year December, Rich Miller gave us a Christmas gift in the form of “The Steppin” mixtape. This year, Christmas came early. Our musical Santa Claus is here with an EP, as a follow-up to the previous tape, “NDILIDI” EP. The 8-track EP is a body of work full of fireworks. Rich Miller’s delivery is on another level. Within a year, the young and talented rapper has improved his rap skill.
NDILIDI is an abbreviation of RichMiller’s favourite catch phrase, “Nobody Do It Like I Do It”, Even though this body work is to captivate good music lovers, it touches on the reality of life. It is also more of soulful yet invigorating rap music that aims at impacting lives. The production on this project is so on point that it makes you want to push your ear buds further in, to hear every lyric and appreciate each element of instrument and sampled vocals. Production credits go to Phredxter, Krizick, A2Rbeatz and FabDIdIt. The man behind this sonic excellence is 1Kwame. “NDILIDI” is here to serve rap fans and music lovers at large.
In this era which the Ghanaian youth have ears for varieties of music genres regardless of the status of the artiste – mainstream or uprising, it is only right for Chief Kellz to give us what we deserve. Born Kelvin Yaw Yeboah, Chief Kellz is a young rapper and soangwriter who has 3 mixtapes to his credit, i.e. “Corrupt Minds, Pure Hearts” (2014), “Beauty and Hustle” (2015) and OV Da Roof (2017) which he launched at a lit-up balcony session on the 18th of February, 2017 at the Georgia Hostel 5th Floor Big Balcony on KNUST Campus.
The lyricist managed by BloodLine Recordings is set to unleash his latest project, “Trap Nights in Kentinkrono.” Chief Kellz disclosed to Steeze Hub,
“this is a soundtrack to a life on campus with topics from lost relationships, crime, sex and drug addiction among campus girls, a very unusual style of writing but that is Chief Kellz’ reality. Productions on the tape were handled by Apya, Yung Nana, Raven Montana, Bomba, Liquid Beatz and Perry Mingle.
This is more than your usual mixtape, with genres ranging from Trap, Hip Hop, Hip Life and Afro Beat sounds. Icebox comes with the infectious Breman – inspired rhymes and G-West gave us the vocals that can trigger a bad girl addiction. Bomba could not be left out with the consciousness of Rastafari and the spiritual sounds it comes with. Yung Nana blessed us with a beat and an unforgettable hook, Then TRPLRD came through reminding us of why the project is titled “Trap Nights In Kentinkrono.”
The 16-track mixtape (with 2 bonus songs) promises to satisfy your hunger and quench your music thirst. 20th December happens to be the blessed day Chief Kellz will let his music lovers enjoy this greatness.

Since Ebony’s publicity team announced that she has 2 bangers coming up which are potential Christmas hits, ears have been on the ground to hear what the 90s bad girl has for us. The “Sponsor” hitmaker doesn’t disappoint as she gives us “Hustle” which features musician, Brella. Ebony sings about grinding to make both ends meet. It’s a struggle in the streets, so it’s only for Ebony to serve us with motivation. The most interesting part of the song is where she plays on words [again], saying “Mo ndi me oooh, mo ndi me dwa.” Listening to that statement alone may make you draw a conclusion that she’s being profane. But it’s actually Ebony pleading with customers/consumers to buy her items, since she puts up the personality of a trader in the song. the fast tempo Afropop song was produced by Danny Beatz. This is a potential hit!
Jay Shine is mentioned amongst the new breed of wavy artistes. After a successful commercial single with Joey B, the singer drops another one to end his silence, titled “Santorini.” Santorini is one of the Cyclades islands in the Aegean Sea. It was devastated by a volcanic eruption in the 16th century BC, forever shaping its rugged landscape. The whitewashed, cubiform houses of its 2 principal towns, Fira and Oia, cling to cliffs above an underwater caldera (crater). Jay shine plans to take his dream girl there to let her have an experience she has never had in her life. Production was handled ace producer, Paq.
There are songs which become hits off the internet. “Ekomedeme” happens to be one of them. The song which had massive social appeal caught the attention of Ghana’s most decorated musician, Sarkodie. Hence he laid a verse on the Afropop instrumental for a remix. In fact, before hearing the song I thought Broni was a rapper, just to plug in an earpiece and realize he’s a young man who lays sweet vocals. “Ekomedeme” literally translates to English as “I am hungry.” Broni sings about how people may be going hungry, literally, discussing poverty (a topic which most musicians don’t like to touch). You know how Sarkodie gets emotional with a topic like this, right? He goes in like none other. DJ Kwamzy laid the instrumental whilst Laxio handled post production.
When I saw the tweet about the release of this song, I went totally bonkers. I mean when you have Fuse ODG, Ed Sheeran and Mugeez on one song, of course, it’d be extremely fire. With Ed Sheeran on the chorus singing Twi, and Killbeatz on the instrumental, words cannot describe the perfection of this song. “Boa Me” means “help me.” What I like about the song is the positive message it carries. They sing about how God has lifted them and ask for more help.
